Groundhog Day is near, and that’s how it must start to feel for the Warriors this time of year.

Kamehameha (9-4) rides a six-match winning streak into Saturday’s title match (5 p.m. in Kealakekua) against the eight-time defending champion Ka Makani, who have relegated the Warriors to runner-up status the past six seasons.

On Wednesday at Paiea Stadium, Kamehameha defeated the Makua Lani Lions in the BIIF semifinals for the fourth consecutive season, winning 6-0 behind a hat trick by senior standout Hevani Haunga.

Hiilei Wong Yuen added two goals and Chenoa Frederick finished with one.
