Most of them have changed uniforms, but that may be the extent of it for the Kryptonite men’s soccer team.
You see, around 99 percent of the squad consists of former Kapa‘a High School soccer players and most of them played together in their prep careers.
“Most of the boys have been playing soccer since four years of age and live in the Kapa‘a/Wailua area,” super soccer fan Sue Strickland said.
The Kryptonite are currently undefeated and sit in the first-place spot in the Kaua‘i men’s soccer league.
They play every Sunday at Wailua Homesteads Park and game times are at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The public can come and watch the action every week.
“There is always a very good crowd of people watching this highly competitive league,” Strickland said.
There are five teams in the league, with two from the northshore, two from the westside, along with the Kryptonite.
Kryptonite players are Rawlin Toki, Kaena Mayer, Erik Baxter, Eddie Adams, Kyle Strickland, Zac Davis, Randy Toki, Kainoa Nakazawa, Lucas Hassett, George Alfiler, Duncan McDonald, Christian McKeown, Keoni Nakano, Tui Alapa, Waika Oliver, Daniel Minei, Carlos Garcia, Tyson Wakayama, and Tyrone Akana.
