All the Kapa’a football team wants is to rewind back to the KIF regular season finale, as the Warriors defeated the Menehune for the first time in over 10 seasons.
Warrior head coach Sia Salausa hopes that the team can feed off of that game’s momentum into Friday’s game against Waimea at Vidinha Stadium.
The Warrior first-year head coach has high expectations for his team and feels as if they can turn things around this season.
Both teams have yet to win a game this year, so Friday will be the first taste of victory for one of the two squads.
Meanwhile, the two-time defending KIF champion Red Raiders have the week off to prepare for the Warriors.
Kaua’i hosts Kapa’a at Vidinha Stadium next week Friday, Sept. 16.
Updated: A few key players on Waimea’s football squad are feeling a bit under the weather. “I think the flu bug may be going around. I’ve been feeling kinda sick too,” Menehune head coach Liko Pereira said.
