Kahuku's Tausili Fiatoa and Nalu Emerson celebrate after a defensive play. Sylvia Lee | SL Nearly three weeks after it was on the wrong end of a game-winning play in a heartbreaking one-point loss, the Kahuku defense came through in a big way in Friday night's 27-7 playoff victory over host Campbell in Ewa Beach. The Red Raiders got their revenge against the Sabers, who rallied their way to a 28-27 win the last time the teams faced off in the regular season. This time around,
Often times, we forget the work that goes in behind the scenes. We see the boys run out on the field, stretch, warm up and play. We don’t realize that the games are just a small part of what contributes to the success of this team. Its the team practices. It’s the individual drills, the resistance training, the early morning runs on the bike path. These things are done daily by these boys.

Kahuku's Nalu Emerson tried to stiff arm Waianae linebacker Angus Ramaila, who still managed to make the tackle in Friday's game. Photo by Steven Erler/Special to the Star-Advertiser. Guess who the leading rusher was in Kahuku’s 49-13 football victory over Waianae on Friday night? Some shifty or bull-like running back from Kahuku? Wrong. It was Waianae’s Kaai Tambaoan-Kaeo, who carried the ball 15 times for 86 yards. As a matter of fact, the two offenses were relatively equal
STEVEN ERLER / SPECIAL TO THE STAR-ADVERTISER Kahuku’s Nalu Emerson stiff-armed Waianae linebacker Angus Ramaila while running for yardage during the first half at Raymond Torii Field in Waianae on Friday. Heavily favored Kahuku hit some bumps early Friday night, but finally found the mojo it needed on the way to a convincing 49-13 OIA Open Division football victory over Waianae at Raymond Torii Field. Slowly and steadily, the Red Raiders (3-0, 1-0) pulled away. For a long wh
