Kaua’i students part of Kamehameha win

LIHU’E – If the name Kaleo Perez and Drew Ueno sound familiar, it’s because they only recently completed their summer outing in various Kaua’i sports arenas before heading to Kamehameha for school.

Perez returned home, and threw a pair of touchdown passes to lead the Kamehameha JV squad to a 36-0 shut out over hosting Kapa’a Saturday afternoon.

Also figuring heavy in the win was Drew Ueno who more recently was a name associated with the West Kaua’i Baseball Association.

KIF official Ben Bragman made the call as Perez lit up the scoreboards on a 10-yard hit to Adam Goodman in the first half.

Duncan graced the score with a two-point PAT play for the 8-0 lead.

With 3:23 left in the half, Evan Collier charged for a six-yard score, but the point-after attempt came up empty giving Kamehameha a 14-0 nod.

Another Collier score with no time left on the clock was followed by an Anthony Taylor book for the 21-0 Kamehameha halftime lead.

Perez opened the second half scorebooks with 2:22 showing in the third period on a 15-yard connection to Moe Manuma with Taylor successfully booting the PAT giving Kamehameha a 28-point lead.

A safety opened up the fourth quarter for Kamehameha with Tyson Fujimoto gracing that effort on a four-yard charge to paydirt.

Taylor’s PAT attempt with 5:26 left in the game came up empty for the 36-0 final math.

Kapa’a JV will open the KIF season Friday as they host the Kaua’i JV squad at Vidinha Stadium.

Kickoff is 5 p.m.
