GAME PREVIEW Farrington Governors

S

VS

tadium lights shine and the dull roar of the crowd can be heard as they settle into the stands waiting for the game to start. The sound of football has found its way back to Raymond Torii Field at Wai‘anae High School. For over a year, Searider fans have not had the chance to cheer on their team because the stadium’s bleachers have been under construction. With the bleachers condemned, spectators were left with nowhere to sit and the football team had no option but to play all of their games away from home. Tonight marks the first home game the Searider football team has had since October 14, 2011 and the team hopes to make the most of the home crowd. “They are all excited about it, it’s nice again, it’s always good for the community that they didn’t have to travel as far,” head coach Daniel Matsumoto said.

For the boys on the team, the return to their community adds a needed boost to the team’s morale and gives them extra confidence to play at their best. “Being back on our home field, playing in front of our fans is just great, it makes us want to play hard and make everyone proud,” sophomore defensive Linemen John Kapua VI said. Though the season is only beginning, being back in Wai‘anae has made the entire team more positive. “[We’re] very optimistic. We got good players this year, so very optimistic. Hopefully, we do well this year; but so far so good,” Matsumoto said. Wai‘anae High School football has always been a major part of the Wai‘anae community, with generations of families contributing to the Searider gridiron tradition. For Seariders past and present home is where the heart is and the heart of Wai‘anae is back with the Seariders return. Welcome back Seariders.
