All of this weekend’s football games involving Big Island Interscholastic Federation teams

As first reported by the Maui News, Kea`au High School’s road game against Lahainaluna was cancelled, with the decision coming down Tuesday night.

According to Kea`au Athletic Director Iris McGuire, the Cougars were supposed to fly to Maui from Hilo on the first flight Friday morning. They were scheduled to play at 7:00 p.m. at Maui’s War Memorial Stadium.  In an e-mail, McGuire said that the game will not be rescheduled “until possibly next year.”

Kea`au will now open its season with a home game against St. Francis of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu. The game is scheduled for Sat., Aug. 16, with kickoff slated for 6:00 p.m.

Honoka`a High School’s home game against Oahu Interscholastic Association opponent Kaimuki was also cancelled. It was the Dragons’ only preseason game scheduled prior to the start of the regular season.
