An uneven playing field
September 10, 2014

It wasn't a pleasant one. The crown jewel of the Hawaii soccer scene, Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium, had fallen into an unkempt state. Weeds grew rampant on the pitch. The playing field was no longer completely level in spots. But the 15-year-old stadium's woes go beyond the playing surface. Its scoreboard -- long in need of repairs -- had become increasingly garbled and illegible in recent years, and it was decided before the 2014 season to shut down the display until further notice.
