It was the kind of championship game that went, more or less, by the book. The dominant, unbeaten (in Division I) team takes one, two, three solar plexus shots from the fearless challenger, then turns around and gradually buries that foe brick by brick.

By Dave Reardon on November 1, 2013

When she was Terri Young, she was a great softball pitcher at Kaiser High, a proud graduate of the class of 1985 and the OIA East Player of the Year and a consensus all-stater.

By Brian McInnis on October 19, 2013

The handshakes between Pearl City players and their Kalani counterparts began with 1:30 left on the clock and the Chargers still needing to take two knees to end it. The red-clad crowd stood, clapped and cheered well after the final whistle. The respect all around Radford’s stadium was obvious on Friday night. Kalani earned that this season, a banner year that came to an end at 6-4 with a 28-14 loss to Pearl City on Friday night in the OIA […]

Update: Kaiser 51, Radford 3, Final

By Paul Honda on October 18, 2013

Pre-game JV game is in the third quarter. Kaiser leads Kalaheo 35-0. It’s a typical evening in Hawaii Kai. Good breeze from mauka side. Partly cloudy. Gorgeous sunset.

First quarter 8:59 – The Cougars drive on the ground and score on a 3-yard […]
