No. 2 Kahuku returns to its roots


By

POSTED: Sunday, September 06, 2009

The DNA is encoded into Kahuku football.

There were occasional variations in years past, but when it comes down to it, Red Raider football is about controlling the line of scrimmage.

Down 6-3 against a formidable Roosevelt defense, coach Reggie Torres and offensive coordinator Walter Santiago made a sea change. After passing in eight of its first 18 plays from scrimmage, Kahuku ran on 40 of the last 46 plays. A 38-12 win doesn't tell the tale of the obstacle that a relatively healthy Roosevelt squad was.

Whether it was a single-back set (ace) with a wing man in motion, or an I formation with a slot split out far away—basically a twin receivers set—Kahuku pounded away. Roosevelt, which has come a long way since its season-opening loss to Aiea, slowly began to cave in. The linebacker corps, arguably one of the best in the OIA, became a step slower converging to the ball.

With another good blocker, Fonoivasa Mataafa, lining up at fullback and wingback, it was almost unfair. Kahuku marched at will on the ground, chipping away with gains: 5 yards, then 5 more, 8, 10, 5, 6, 14, 3 and 2. The last was a Galeai Malufau touchdown, and the Red Raiders never trailed again. The Red Raiders finished with 300 rushing yards (6 per carry).

Kahuku's ability to batter away at a strong rush defense set the table for quarterback Evan Moe, who later tossed touchdown passes to Shairone Thompson and Kaipo Pearl, who was left alone in the left corner by a Roosevelt defense that had to put eight defenders in the box.

One of Kahuku's running backs in a three-man rotation, Tyrone Brown, finished with a team-high 115 rushing yards and showed impressive second-effort burst on a 55-yard touchdown. Viliami Pasi was the workhorse with 93 yards in 20 carries, and Malufau had 38 yards before leaving with a knee injury.
