Meanwhile, 2021 OIA Division I champion routed defending state Division II champion Kapa’a 41-17 in what many across the state consider an upset due to the returning talent the Warriors returned, including early state player of the year candidate Solomone Malafu. Na Ali’i were boosted by Geronimo Ulgaran’s three first-quarter touchdowns, which included two receiving scores and a house call on a punt return as the first 12 minutes expired.
