The Konawaena Wildcats will see a familiar face when they travel to Kaiser High School next Saturday.

Konawaena, who won the Big Island Interscholastic Federation Division II championship with a 27-19 victory over Hawai`i Preparatory Academy Friday, will visit the Cougars, who won the Oahu Interscholastic Association White Division championship over Pearl City.

Leading the Kaiser offense is Kahoalii Karratti, who led Konawaena’s prolific offense to a league championship last season. Karratti has thrown for 1,258 yards and 10 touchdowns this season in an offense that is much more balanced than the pass heavy offense Konawaena has utilized.

The Wildcats are the only league champion to be unseeded for the First Hawaiian Bank / Hawai`i High School Athletic Association Division II Football Championships, which kick off next Saturday around the state. Kaiser received the fourth seed, allowing it to host the opening round contest.

Maui Interscholastic League champion Lahainaluna earned the top seed in the tournament and will host the winner of the Konawaena-Kaiser game on Sat., Nov. 16. Defending state champion Iolani, winner of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu, was given the second seed. The Raiders will host either OIA White runner up Pearl City or third-seeded Kauai, the champion of the Kauai Interscholastic Federation.
