If there’s one thing the Red Raider football team can depend on this season, it’s their defense.
The stingy group has allowed only 7.5 points per contest this season in the KIF.
Kaua’i also posted two shutouts, a 7-0 win over Waimea on Sept. 30 and a 42-0 drubbing of Kapa’a on Oct. 28.
The three-time defending KIF champions (5-0-1) head into Hanapepe Stadium tonight with a full head of steam.
Kaua’i has had the luxury of a week off and head coach Keli’i Morgado and his staff certainly needed the time off to prepare for a team that could cause problems for the Red Raiders.
Kamehameha-Maui (5-6) is making its first-ever state tournament appearance and according to Morgado, the Warriors’ offensive attack mirrors Waimea’s, with their run first, pass second scheme.
The HHSAA/First Hawaiian Bank State Division II first-round game at Hanapepe Stadium starts at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
The food booth is sponsored by Mark’s Place and Keoki’s Paradise. Funds raised by the concessions will be used solely for the Kaua’i High School Red Raider foot-ball program.
The menu will feature roast pork bowl, saimin, pizza, hot dogs, Dippin’ Dots, and numerous beverages.
