Rematch set in Kapa‘a

At last meeting, Kapa‘a’s defense suffered a confidence crusher when it allowed Waimea to score eight touchdowns and go for 457 total yards of offense.

But changes have been made to the lineup to hopefully stop the Menehune (1-1 Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation) from pulling off a repeat performance. Villiami Masaniai and Semisi Malolo, who were injured during preseason, are healthy and good for a return to the defensive line. Senior co-captain Maika‘i Kuhaulua, who has been primarily used on the offensive line, will also be moved to play defense.

Kapa‘a’s offense, as of yesterday, was still up in the air. Head coach Keli‘i Morgado said they were still in the “transitional state” while they try to work out all the kinks.

No quarterback was named the starter, but all three listed on the active roster — co-captains Luther Yam, Ikaika Fuerte and junior Brehdan Kamibayashi — will see playing time.

Waimea is currently averaging 280 yards in total offense per game compared to Kapa‘a’s 117. Waimea also beats Kapa‘a in average points per game. The Menehune average 24.5 to the Warriors 8.
