Tonight, King Kekaulike Stadium, 6 p.m.

Overview

Both teams will be looking for crucial momentum for the second round of play which kicks off next week. The Sabers secured top 10 votes in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser State Poll last week after their 40-0 win over Baldwin. Na Alii played a controlled scrum against Molokai last week on their week off.

Sabers at a glance

Maui High is looking for a rare three-win round. Quarterback Joe Cariaga had two touchdown passes last week. The Sabers also scored on a fumble return, a kickoff return and an interception return, Zach Dando’s first two.

Na Alii at a glance

King Kekaulike scored 27 points, a season-high, in his last official game when second quarter QB Kalelepono Wong came on from the bench against Kamehameha Maui. Wong scored on two short runs and threw two touchdown passes.

Quotable

“Offensively, I think we did well, we are still missing a few missions. Obviously, defensively we have a lot to work on. … If we can conclude these mistakes, I think we will have a better chance.

– Tyson Valle, head coach of King Kekaulike after loss to Kamehameha Maui

Kamehameha Maui vs. Baldwin

Saturday, War Memorial Stadium, 6 p.m.

Overview

Both of these teams are hoping it’s the rebound week after last week’s unbalanced losses. It will be a battle of two teams who love to pass football, with QB Makana Kamaka-Brayce from Kamehameha Maui and Logan Randall from Baldwin. Each defense gave up more than 20 first tries last week.

Warriors at a Glance

Kamaka-Brayce is MIL’s main passer and has weapons away from Kahoa Abreu, Dylan Schnitzer, Po’okela Aiu and Kainoa Carpenter. Ho’ohenomauloa Stone-Han and McKay Pali lead the game on floor.

Bears at a glance

Ezra Laga and Jonathan Bacos are key to the Bears on both sides of the ball, as linebackers in defense and running backers in attack. Nathen Foster, Jordan Yoro and Kahekili Eleneke are the main receivers.

Quotable

“Any loss, we say to our coaches, to our players, ‘We have a day to do what we have to do. The next day in training we have to go out and focus on our next opponent.

– Pohai Lee, head coach of Baldwin after loss to Maui High last week
