Pearl City meets cross town rival Aiea this week on Wednesday and Saturday as the Chargers move through a tough OIA Red West Division schedule. "I think this year anybody can beat anybody if you don't have your A game. Campbell is up there too. Campbell has a good team this year. You just gotta play every game one game at a time, that's it," said Nakamoto.
