KHS Ends Season 8-2
Kaua’i High gained more yards – 212 to 195 – but that did not translate to more points as the Red Raiders fell to host Iolani in the second round of the state HHSAA football playoffs 14-0.
In a game matching two teams called Raiders – and both in red and black – at Eddie Hamada Field, Iolani scored its two touchdowns in the first half.
Both teams had opportunities in the second half, but neither got into the end zone, thanks to stout defensive play on both sides. Iolani limited Kaua’i running back Darren Acoba to 86 yards rushing on 24 carries. All but 37 of the Red Raiders’ yards came on the ground, and 29 of those passing cards came on one play, from Trey Aguano to Shea Shimabukuro.
KHS finishes with a commendable 8-2 record, a season of which everyone involved with the program can be proud.
