The big question for tonight’s game is if both teams can eclipse the total point output of their last contest.
Waimea’s Kenny Estes was the difference, as he booted a 25-yard field goal for the 3-0 over the Warriors, which was the first KIF game of the 2005-06 season.
However, the Warriors came back the next week and almost pulled off an upset of the two-time defending champion Red Raider squad in the pouring rain at Vidinha Stadium.
The weather at Hanapepe Stadium tonight might become a big factor for both teams, which could lead to another low scoring affair.
The Warriors are still winless on the season and could move to 1-2 in the KIF with a victory tonight.
On the other hand, the Menehune need the win to keep pace with Kaua’i, who holds down the top spot with a 2-0 record. Waimea would move to 2-1 with a triumph over the Warriors.
My prediction: Defense rules in wet and slippery contest. Look for Waimea to rise to the occasion with a 10-3 win.
