The 2022 season opener for Waiakea did not go as planned, as the wildcats of Konawaena erupted for 74 points, to come away with the victory, evening their season record to 1-1. The wildcats got after it from the get-go, exploding for 60 points in the first half alone. The Anahu-Ambrosio brothers accounted for four total touchdowns, both accounting for one on the ground and one through receiving. Quarterback Keoki Alani had himself quite the afternoon, leading the wildcats with his six touchdowns through the air. Jacob Ah Mook Sang also had a day, finding the endzone twice curtesy of the air raid attack.
Waiakea is still in search of its first win in over four years, with the warriors last victory coming during the 2018 season in a 14-13 win over Keaau. The warriors will look to erase this lose as they travel to play Keaau for their next contest on September 2nd, while the wildcats host Kealakehe at 7pm this upcoming Friday.
