hawaiiA recent story from KHON2.com detailed the referee mishap. Below is an excerpt from the KHON2 story.

The Kalani interim head football coach Quinn Griffiths said his players were uniformed and ready to go.

Griffiths said, “It was just disbelief you know you never think that right you see another team there and you think hey we’re ready to roll and we were ready we were ready to play football tonight.”

The Kalaheo High School Head Football Coach Jaymason Lee said he started to get concerned when no referees were on the field, they usually show up an hour before the players and coaches.
