Reece Foy threw four touchdown passes as the ‘Iolani Raiders beat Damien 42-0 in an Interscholastic League of Honolulu opener for both teams today at Aloha Stadium.

The Raiders are 3-1 overall, 1-0 in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu. The Monarchs are 0-3 and 0-1.

For the second time in 14 days, a Damien player was forced to leave the field in an ambulance. Linebacker Mika’ele Nakamura, a 5-foot-10, 220-pound junior, suffered a neck injury while covering a punt during the fourth quarter.

He laid face-first on the turf for 25 minutes before EMS personnel arrived on the scene. He was eventually put on a stretcher, but managed to wave two fingers at the crowd before he was wheeled into the ambulance.

Damien coach Eddie Klaneski said after the game Nakamura never lost consciousness and was being treated for a neck injury.

Two weeks ago, starting quarterback Alan Mohika suffered a concussion during a game. He will not play football again this season.
