COMMUNITY NEWS for November 10 issueM

By Staff | Nov 10, 2016

Roll, Red Tide, roll. It was more like a tsunami overtook the War Memorial Stadium gridiron, as the Lahainaluna High School football team rolled to a resounding 52-14 victory over the Waipahu Marauders last Friday afternoon in the quarterfinal matchup of the Maui Interscholastic League champions and the Oahu Interscholastic Association runner-ups. The Lunas rang up a 38-0 lead at halftime in perhaps the team’s most balanced efficiency performance on both offense and defense this season. Lahainaluna, seeded third in the Division II state playoffs, will now travel to the Big Island to face Konawaena, the second seed, in the semifinal matchup this Saturday, Nov. 12. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the Konawaena campus facility. Imua Lunas! PHOTO BY GLEN PASCUAL.
