For the third year in a row, the high school football season will end with a clash between the two most storied prep football programs in the state. No. 1 Saint Louis (9-0) and its 14 Prep Bowls and four state titles faces No. 2 Kahuku (11-1), which has won eight state championships. Kahuku dominated the Crusaders, 39-14, in 2015 before Saint Louis came back to win last season’s showdown, 30-14. Looks like we will start at 9:55 p.m. Saint Louis 31, Kahuku 28 OFFICIAL BOX SCOR

Kahuku football coach Makoa Freitas is busy in the morning, busy in the afternoon, busy at night. He does all he can, and that means time is precious. Two days before the showdown — the rematch — with defending state champion Saint Louis, he chatted with Hawaii Prep World about being a first-year head coach facing veteran Cal Lee and Sai
Waianae’s Jayce Gonsalves blocked a punt by Kahuku’s Sekope Latu in the first quarter on Friday. Photo by Bruce Asato/Star-Advertiser. All of the scoring plays (along with one interception by each team) from Kahuku’s 10-7 victory over Waianae can be seen by clicking the video links below. In one of the videos, a Kahuku touchdown pass in the North end zone was eventually called back due to a penalty. VIDEOS: Kahuku-Waianae scoring plays #SekopeLatu
Kahuku’s Alex Fonoimoana-Vaomu, bottom, and Miki Ah You upend Mililani’s Kilifi Malepeai in last week's OIA Championship game. STEVEN ERLER / SPECIAL TO THE STAR-ADVERTISER The deeper in the season they go, the Kahuku Red Raiders are stretching, growing, expanding into a new creation. The OIA championship win over Mililani was an instant classic, an epic night that forced Big Red to dig deep. A resilient front seven of Mililani challenged Sol-Jay Maiava and his offensive unit
No matter who wins tonight at Aloha Stadium, a streak of 10 straight OIA titles won by either the Red Raiders or Trojans will be intact. This is the first meeting since Kahuku beat Mililani, 20-7, to win the OIA title, a year after the Trojans beat the Red Raiders in the OIA final by the same score. Keep in mind the loser in this game has to turn around and play No. 1 Saint Louis in six days in the Open-Division I semifinals of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Football State Cha

There was just a tiny window of opportunity when Kahuku coach Makoa Freitas graciously spent a few minutes chatting with Hawaii Prep World on Thursday. Freitas is in his first season as head coach and the Red Raiders are unbeaten in Oahu Interscholastic Association Division I play, in the throes of what could be another epic title run. F

Danny Vietti | MaxPreps.com Saturday, September 9, 2017 Utah triumphs over Hawaii at Polynesian Football Classic in Las Vegas. No. 16 Bingham (South Jordan, Utah) and No. 23 Kahuku (Hawaii)entered Saturday's matchup at the Polynesian Football Classic in Las Vegas with three combined shutouts already this season.
So it's no surprise that defense ruled the night in a meeting between national Top 25 teams as Bingham stifled Kahuku 17-0.
In a game that featured just 335 offensi
Kahuku came out in full force in Las Vegas for last year's game against Bishop Gorman and will do the same tonight against Bingham. Photo by David Becker/Special to the Star-Advertiser. For the second straight year, Kahuku will play a ranked team in Las Vegas when the Red Raiders take on Bingham (Utah) in the second game of the Polynesian Football Classic at Sam Boyd Stadium. Kahuku (4-0) is ranked No. 23 in the country by Max Preps while Bingham is No. 16. The Red Raiders ar
Kahuku running back Elvis Vakapuna battled for yards against Waianae in the OIA semifinals last year. Photo by Jamm Aquino/Star-Advertiser. FINALLY. For the first time since 1975, Kahuku heads out to the West side to face Waianae at Raymond Torii Stadium. Waianae hasn’t beaten Kahuku since 2001, a span of 17 straight losses. The Seariders haven’t even scored on the Red Raiders since 2014 as Kahuku has posted four shutouts in a row in the series. It doesn’t bode well that the
It has been quite some time since I've been on Carleton E. Weimer field on game night. It was definitely a chicken skin experience as I had the privilege of witnessing a Kahuku High School varsity football game from the sidelines. Consequently, since I decided to finally put into action the passion I have for our high school and all it represents for our kids and our community . . . let's just say I will be present at more of its athletic contests and other extra-curricular a
Although we weren't able to be there from the beginning we still were able to get some good shots as well as some video.

It wasn’t hard at all for now-sophomore quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava to see what life on the other side of the playbook could be like. A year ago, the spotlight was bright, maybe occasionally blinding after he received a scholarship offer from Michigan before his high school career h
