HANAPEPE — Waimea JV football lost little time asserting themselves during their 27-6 homecoming victory over Kapa‘a as Nash Danley-Bermoy opened the scorebooks on their first offensive series with a 66-yard romp to paydirt Friday afternoon at Hanapepe Stadium.
Menehune QB Kenny Estes did the honors in the second quarter with a three-yard charge into the end zone with Danley-Bermoy splitting the uprights for a 13-0 bulge that lasted for just a few minutes.
Kapa‘a answered as Aaron Merle snagged the kickoff and shedding tacklers along the way, returned the pigskin for 85 yards to keep the Warriors in the game.
Kapena Tehero got his chance at the end zone in the second half as he latched onto an Estes air ball for a TD on the 14-yard hit with Danley-Bermoy doing the PAT honors for the 20-6 lead.
The defensive slugfest that ensued was interrupted when Waimea’s Jarred Rabot intercepted a Waylen Kupihea pass and returned it 36 yards for the final TD of the game with Estes splitting the uprights for the 27-6 final reading.
Waimea will close out their season this Friday, Oct. 31 when they travel to Vidinha Stadium and meet up with the Kaua‘i Red Raiders who are looking to redeem their first loss suffered at the hands of the Warriors earlier.
Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m.
