The Waianae football program is just a shell of its former self. I remember how they dominated the OIA in the 1970's. Ever since Waianae got whipped by Iolani in the 1980 Prep Bowl, they never been the same. That game marked the end of the former great Waianae football program. I had never seen Waianae get pushed around before, both sides of the ball, as they were in that game.
Anyone got any theories as to what has happenned? Does Waianae still get the turnout of the entire student body as they did in the 70's? Are grades keeping some players out? Are top Waianae coast players being recruited by St Louis? Kamehameha always got their share of players from Waianae, like Richard Mello. Punahou stole Mark Tuinei.

i didnt know that a 7-7 tie in the 1980 prep bowl was a whipping by iolani, the waianae football program aint the same they need to make some offensive changes, maybe if their offense coordinator would go to some clinics would help, if not they should get rid of him even if hes larry ginozas son, he holding the program hostage, good win leilehua maybe the waianae community will do something to get matsumoto and ginoza out

Exit8 is spot-on right. I have said the same thing. Manley is the best QB in Hawaii and was last year. Puns fear him. I met manley at Ala Moana center...really sweet, shy country boy.

Come on coach, if you were at the '80 Prep Bowl, you would have seen first hand how Iolani pushed Waianae all over the field, both sides of the ball. I had never seen Waianae get dominated like that before. I think Waianae had only 2 plays in the entire game that gained yards, both back to back right before the end of the first half. One was slant over the middle to Kyle Kobashigawa that went for around 40 yards, then the next play James Woodard took a swing pass from Michael Beazley for another 30 yards which got them to the 5. Even then, Waianae had to scrap and claw to get in for a TD. They converted on a 4th down pass after Michael Beazley finally found somebody open in the back of the south end zone.
I disagree about the passing teams causing problems for Waianae, to a certain degree. Kaiser was a dominant passing team in the late 70's and Waianae handled them.

Congrats to Leilehua's JV and Varsity teams last night with their huge wins against Waianae. First the JV wins their championship game and the Varsity cruises with their game being over at the half. In the second half Waianae lost their cool and displayed poor sportsmanship with all their personal fouls.

Congratulation Mules... Especially the JV, winning their another OIA JV Championship last night...

I never doubted Leilehua... They just needed that lost to Farrington last week as their wake up call... They are capable of defending both of their OIA and the State but Leilehua tends to have a hiccup once in a while...

but next week they can't afford to have another hiccup... we were lucky that there's 3rd place to qualify for the State and a chance to defend the HHSAA title...

for those who are hating... WHATEVER!!!

GO MULES...

Waianae will never win a CHAMPIONSHIP AGAIN!! 2 much family on the coaching staff looking out for their sons-nephews-friends kid- to be the STAR!!worst is they not even good/talented. Matsumoto is just the "appointed" head coach, if you look in the Box/Booth you'll see Larry Ginoza calling the plays. Waianae has a new tradition "individualism" now you see players taking off their helmets, wearing "pretty" belts, white shoes,worst of all NO DISCIPLINE!!!!

Leilehua won last years states due to an inside officiating rigging of state tournament games. The Leilehua alumni whose father was once in charge of the the football referees is the main factor of the on going corruption in Hawaii highschool football gambling.

I went to both games between Leilehua and Waianae. Mules had no business losing that first game. They are clearly the better team and in my opinion, the best team in the OIA. They had two heartbreaking losses.
I agree with coach. Waianae still has athletes. Their run defense is awesome. I haven't see anyone run on them yet. They just couldn't stop Manley's passing, even though they got pressure on him. The problem is coaching. Waianae (also Farrington, Kahuku) continue to run this all too predictable, archaic offense. Run on first, run on second, pass only when you absolutely must. It's typical OIA football and it's been that way for too long. The ILH is a superior league from top to bottom because they're a passing league. Their players participate in lots of 7 on 7 passing leagues during the offseason. When you watch those teams play (Punahou, St. Louis, Kam) and right away the difference in offensive schemes becomes apparent. they run, they pass. Some pass to set up the run. Some pass heavy and sprinkle in the run to keep others off-balance. Waianae's QB looks lost when back to pass and is completely inaccurate. The coaches are absolutely no help to him and they have no outside-the-box thinking whatsoever. If Waianae would replace their coaches and get people in there who know offense, I have no doubt they would be back at the top. They still have some athletes.

The Mules Offense is unstoppable and the Defense is stifle. They are peaking at the right time! If not for the refs. rigging last nights game, Manley would've had 500 yds. 5 TD's easy.

iou, you owe it to yourself to accept what really happened in last years Leilehua win. Leilehua's D had Mamiya running for his life all night and he was rattled, if not for his quick feet, he wouldv'e been dumped all over the place. Throwing 3 int's in that game when he had 3 all year. Da Mules shouldv'e had 3 defensive scores, easy. He also wasn't too bright when he ran out of bounds to stop the clock with less then 2 minutes to go.
Coach Tengan punting on 4th down , when they ran the ball well all night and didn't make the call to go for it. St.Louis D-linemen taking cheap shots on Manley all night. Manley to Dumlao for the "game winner" And last but least Coach Tokuda making all the right calls at the right time, changing the pace with a more mobile QB, Manley's QB sneak on 4th down. Is that what you call rigged?

No way..Leilehua just picked St. Louis apart hon. The entire crusader community was humbled. Manley is the best QB in Hawaii. Punahou lackls anyone at thta position that can compete.
