WEEK 3 Wrap: Waimea Loses Opener; Liberty Upends No. 5 Saint Louis

Waimea was itching to finally get its season underway, but came up short 38-21 to Buckeye Union of Arizona at Hanapepe Stadium on Saturday night.

The Menehunes — who won the Division II state championship last season — did not have a game in the first two weeks of Hawaii high school football this year.

Incidentally, Buckeye Union head coach David Ellis is originally from Hawaii.

Our Kauai correspondent got the photo below from Saturday’s game.

The Buckeye Union running back was called for hurdling on this play.
