KAHUKU Because of a scoreboard malfunction, it appeared Kahuku spotted Kaimuki an 8-0 lead last night.

Iolani wide receiver Jay Marcouiller reached over Kearney cornerback Corey Pitts, but couldn't hang on to the pass from quarterback Kila Ka'aihue in yesterday's preseason game at Iolani's field.

The Red Raiders (1-0 Red, 2-0 overall), winners of 11 straight spanning two seasons, jumped to a 20-0 first-quarter lead and made it 34-0 at the half.
When Loga Fonoimoana returned the second half kickoff 84 yards for a touchdown, that initiated the league's mercy rule, which keeps the clock running when a 35-point differential is reached in the second half.
"I was supposed to go along our (Kahuku) sideline but there was no opening so I took it across," Fonoimoana said.
But Kaimuki wasn't ready to fold, stuffing the mercy rule with 1:41 left in the third quarter on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Caires to Daniel Tautofi, which made it 41-7.
Kahuku fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Kaimuki recycled the turnover into a 28-yard touchdown run by Soloni Taumalolo with 30 seconds left in the third quarter to make it 41-13.
"We told them not to leave anything on the field," Kaimuki coach Ronald Oyama said.
The Bulldogs were missing 13 players to academic probation and four to injuries. Five were starters and the rest played on special teams.
"They did a hell of a job with many of their guys going two ways," Kahuku coach Siuaki Livai said.
Fonoimoana led all Red Raiders in scoring with two touchdowns, his first on a 39-yard pass from quarterback Inoke Funaki.
Fonoimoana, usually the starting slotback, didn't start the game because of showboat antics he did in last week's win against Skyline (Utah) he said. Otherwise he might have scored a third touchdown because Moana Hafoka's 78-yard touchdown run was originally planned for him.
