Red Raiders, Mighty Mules, HHSAA State Semifinals. History is not on Kahuku’s side when you put those 3 phrases together. Kahuku lost in the other 2 previous State Semifinal match ups in 2004 and 2008. However, the Red Raider defense have dominated the high flying Mule offense in their last 2 games picking off 7 passes. In Leilehua’s last game, they jumped out to a commanding 22-0 lead and used a pair of late field goals to hold off a rallying Kealakehe Waverider team on the big island. The last time we saw our Red Raiders, after a slow start, the offense played their best football in the 2nd half while the defense had a masterful performance shutting down the state’s leading rusher and blanking the, then ranked #1, Farrington Governors 23-0 which earned them a bye last week. It’s power vs. finesse part 2 at the Aloha Stadium at 7PM HST on Friday the 18th of November. The game will be streaming online for those of you in the mainland (click here for the link).
