 It was nice and cool with no rain, making it the optimal condition to spectate the events that occurred on Friday, September 13.  When you walked in, you could see everyone as they gathered at the Konawaena football field to watch the games and celebrate Homecoming. The junior varsity played first, followed by our Homecoming parade for each of the classes, ‘20 – ‘23, to show their pride. Finally, our varsity played against the Warriors from Waiakea.

 Our junior varsity Wildcats started off the night with their game against the warriors. The intense game ended in their favor. The Wildcats were triumphant with a score of 35 – 14, while the classes set up for the Homecoming parade. When the 4th quarter of the JV game ended, the cheerleaders and football players from JV, joined their classes to help support and show spirit. The winners were announced with freshmen in fourth, juniors in third, seniors in second and sophomores being the winning class.

The Homecoming parade was an amazing event full of anticipation and excitement. The classes circled the track showing their school spirit while competing for the winning Homecoming title. Once the classes finished, everyone stopped and listened in respect to the Star Spangled Banner and Hawai’i Pono’i.  The crowd then put their hands together for the singers, and waited in anticipation for the varsity’s entrance. The players then marched out onto the field. Walking two by two, hand in hand on the track towards the left side of the field, where they held their Konawaena Wildcats flag to signal the start of the game.

The varsity ended the night with an incredible game filled with memorable moments.  Some of these moments include a pick 6 from number 52, Samson Iona. If you’re not familiar with the term, this means that Samson got an interception, and then proceeded to make a touchdown.  Another play involved number 15, Marc Basa, receiving a ball intended for number 3, Jesse Canda. The ball bounced out of Jesse’s hands making it difficult for him to recover it, but luckily, Marc was there to catch it.  Our varsity ended the half with an astounding lead of 41-0. The Waiakea warriors stepped it up in the second half and the game ended with 47-7, a victory for the Wildcats.  

To sum up the night, both our varsity, and junior varsity won their games against Waiakea’s football  teams. Both teams played their hardest with good sportsmanship and team effort. They were both good games with our Homecoming parade in between.
