@NorthEast: Today's paper said none of Kamehameha's starters played. So, that's why they didn't look like #1; #1 was warming the bench. And, I support that move by Kamehameha HC Maafala 100%. Indeed, a "full-on" game between the two schools' starting units would be something to behold. Both schools are usually run-oriented, but this year both schools can throw the ball as well. Kahuku picked-off Kamehameha a few times? It wasn't Kamehameha's starting QB whom they picked-off. Meanwhile, Kamehameha's D picked-off the starting QBs of Punahou and St Louis. So, Kamehameha's starting unit can tell Kahuku, "Bring it on, dude. We think we can match you, score for score." But, Kamehameha has to get to States to say that. Obviously, Kahuku has an unfair advantage in getting there: 1.) They don't have to get past St Louis to get to States, and 2.) OIA Open gets more than one school.NorthEast wrote: ↑Sat Oct 09, 2021 9:30 pm @HS Football Fanatic there wasn’t any significant injuries. I’m not familiar with whose the starters for kamehameha are, but they didn’t look like a #1 ranked team on either side of the ball. Kahuku moved the ball at will on offense. Looks like kahuku has a well balanced team this year on offense! Defense looks solid as always they picked Kam off a few times. Can’t wait to see a full on game they look like they’re ready and hungry!
For Kamehameha, Punahou is nothing to sneeze at, either. They lost to St Louis by only 6, and had the ball on what appeared to be the last possession, until St Louis intercepted. I think the only school in OIA Open that Kahuku has to worry about is Mililani. And, even if they lose to Mililani, they can still make States. Kamehameha might say, "Hey, that sucks; that's not fair". But, no one said life is fair.
