Zero to zero, Kamehameha vs St. Louis? 1926.


Before a crowd of spectators estimated to number between twelve and thirteen thousand, the football teams of Kamehameha and Sana Lui stood upon the battlefield for the championship of the year, in the afternoon of this past Saturday, on the Kamehameha School field, without there being a victor between those teams; they were tied with no score on either side.

This game between the two teams were one of the most fierce seen in Honolulu nei, filled with emotion; and there were many behind each team, and the worry of a great many spectator was relieved because neither side took the victory for themselves.

But because of the tie between these two teams, the confusion of the many remains as to which side goes the championship of the year, and therefore, another game is planned between the two teams in the afternoon of this Thursday, outside in the new Kamoilili field.

There are two football games in the new ball field this afternoon; the first one at one o’clock is between the teams of Punahou and McKinley; and at three o’clock thereafter is the game between St. Louis and Kamehameha.

Last year, to the team of St. Louis went the name of champion of 1925, and as for the champion of this year, it is not known until these teams of St. Louis and Kamehameha compete again this afternoon; the team that runs away with the victory, to that team will go the championship of 1926.

[This is the outcome of the game on Saturday, 11/20/1926, pictured in this same issue of the Kuokoa. The rematch taking place in the afternoon of 11/25/1926 was ultimately won by Kamehameha, 14 to 13, giving Kamehameha the championship of 1926.]
