Waimea, Kapa’a round two

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.
