Kapa‘a, Koloa Peewee showdown on Saturday

Koloa Rams and the Kapa‘a Eagles Peewee teams had 33-0 wins, and the Lihu‘e Patriot Midgets were a 25-0 winner over Kekaha to set the stage for Saturday’s games at the New Kapa‘a Town Park stadium.

Dreyke Smith Butac had touchdown runs of 2 yards and 95 yards to lead the Patriots’ win over Kekaha, both runs coming in the first quarter, Saturday at Vidinha Stadium.

Erin Doi, kicking the point-after following Smith Butac’s first TD, added a 16-yard field goal in the second period for the 17-0 halftime bulge.

Dade Apao iced the Patriots’ victory with a 37-yard run to paydirt in the third period with Doi splitting the uprights on the PAT as the Kaua‘i Pop Warner Association hosted five games.

That victory improves Lihu‘e to a tie with the Hanapepe Colts at 4-1 and 8 points for the lead in the Midget division of the Kaua‘i Pop Warner Association.

Kekaha, tied with Kapa‘a at 1-4 and two points, will go up against Hanapepe in a noon matchup while Kapa‘a goes up against Lihu‘e starting at 2 p.m.

Rashaan Kuhaulua threw for two touchdowns and Leevi Bethel ran for a touchdown and a point-after to lead the Kapa‘a Eagles Peewee to a 33-0 win over the Lihu‘e Patriots.

Kaikea Sonoda opened with a 30-yard run and Edsel Lactaotao split the uprights on the point-after before taking the pigskin on a 57-yard romp for an early 14-0 lead.

Kuhaulua hit Matthew Cummings with a 12-yard aerial midway through the second period with Bethel running in the point-after.

He followed that with a 41-yard scoring scamper for the 27-0 halftime lead.

With 4:14 showing in the third period, Kuhaulua pushed the clock into running time with a 53-yard hit to Cummings for the 33-0 final.

Earlier in the day, Trey Aguano ran for two touchdowns and passed for another  and a point-after as the Koloa Rams took a 33-0 win over the Hanapepe Colts.

Kelson Andrade added a 9-yard score before Aguano sealed a 27-0 halftime lead by connecting with Kalawai‘a Judd on a 10-yard hit and running in the point-after.

Michael Gabriel pushed the clock into running time with just 41 ticks showing in the third period with a 31-yard run to the end zone.

Those victories set the stage for the game of the week as No. 1 Koloa Rams improve to 6-0 and a dozen points in the Peewee standings with Kapa‘a suffering its only season loss from the Rams earlier in the season.

No. 2 Kapa‘a is 4-1 and eight points followed by Hanapepe, 1-4 and two points. Lihu‘e is still seeking its first season win at 0-6.

The rematch between Koloa and Kapa‘a Peewees kick off at 6 p.m.

A 1-yard touchdown by Hanapepe Colts JPW’s Chavis Garma pulled the black-and-gold back in the game with 3:09 showing, but Kevin Tacazon’s point-after run came up a point short as the Koloa JPW took a 14-13 win into the locker room.

Lopeka Ventura opened the scorebooks with an 86-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter with Jenson Hanohano’s extra point book giving Koloa an 8-0 lead at the buzzer.

Ventura upped the ante on a 52-yard scoring romp in the second quarter for the 14-0 Koloa half that stood until the final quarter when Garma hit Ika Wilson for a 57-yard pass.

That Koloa win improves the team standing to a 2-3 showing for a tie with Hanapepe Colts for third place. Each team finished Saturday with 4 points.

Lihu‘e Patriots, battling Kekaha to a 0-0 deadlock in regulation play, control second place at 2-2-1 and 5 points while Kekaha rounds out the standings at 1-3-1 and 3 points. The Kapa‘a Eagles, playing Koloa at 4 p.m., Saturday, lead the standings with a 4-0 undefeated record and eight points.
