The OIA-ILH football schedule is out for the 2018 season.

For the first time, the two leagues are combining for a full slate of regular-season games. The OIA and ILH will continue to crown their own league champions. The OIA will hold playoffs. The ILH will base its champions on won-loss records.

The schedule does not include the LH vs. ILH games in the Open Division and the ‘Iolani vs. Damien game in Division I and Pac-Five vs. St. Francis in Division II.

As expected, there are blockbuster matchups in the Open Division, Division I and D-II nearly every week. Opening week of the regular season features Punahou playing at Kahuku for the first time since 2012.

The weekend of Friday, Aug. 31, and Saturday, Sept. 1, is a bye week in Hawaii for all but two teams. Other Hawaii teams have mainland games scheduled that weekend.

Here’s the list of Hawaii vs. mainland games we know about:

Friday, Aug. 31
>> Clackamas (Clackamas, Ore.) at ‘Iolani
>> Damien at Mt. Spokane (Mead, Wash.)
>> Mililani at St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.)
>> Campbell at O’Connor (Phoenix)
>> Kapolei at Downey (Downey, Calif.)

Friday, Sept. 7
>> Kaimuki at Sierra Vista (Las Vegas)

Saturday, Sept. 8
>> Farrington vs. Carson (Carson, Calif.), at Liberty High School

The OIA-ILH schedule does not include the first week of games (the weekend of Aug. 3-4), in which all teams in the state are free to schedule other teams in the state or from the mainland.

The schedule is subject to change. Only varsity games are listed below.

    This will be interesting. Cant wait to see the results at end of the season.

    Does the Jv team follow the same schedule as the Varsity?. Let me know since everything is changing. Lol


  3. Q April 30, 2018 10:35 pm

    Are 4 teams sharing the field at the same time? That can’t be right.

    Thank You for the correction…ILH / OIA DOUBLE HEADER…cool


  5. RedRaider4Life May 1, 2018 2:35 am

    Now this has me smiling from ear to ear. No excuses. It don’t matter what school you attended, this is a football fan’s dream.


  6. rrforlifebaby May 1, 2018 8:11 am

    Should be a very fun, but challenging season!
    RRFL!


  7. AOK May 1, 2018 9:43 am

    BEST. REGULAR. SEASON. EVER.


  8. Preach May 1, 2018 10:01 am

    I dont know if this is a good idea? This may be fun for fans to watch, what about the kids bodies who are going to be smashing against other top athletes. In the past you had weeks of lesser competition where you played your reserves, now its going to be your best against their best and hopefully you dont get some kid with a bright future hurt playing every down. Good luck, stay safe. Theres more to life.


  9. Mk May 1, 2018 10:32 am

    Now this is going to help Hawaii high schools be ready for the top programs in the Nation.Every team will have to step up their game.


  10. no more kala May 1, 2018 11:30 am

    Ho…bummer. Now I gotta buy OC Sports Xcast.


  11. CynHyn May 1, 2018 3:53 pm

    No understand why ILH open will play 33%less football then the OIA OPEN. That means 33% less chance of injury and more rest? Huh?


  12. "UNITY=STRENGTH" May 1, 2018 4:02 pm

    This is the first year for this historic High school football season make it a good one and make it work. addressing the schools just my opinion if you know the game is coming home to you guys that night send in your second third strings make it a good game for the players and ever body watching a comfortable lead is good enough common sense will let you know we all benefit unless its St louis Kahuku,St Louis Punahou,Punahou Kapolei or Hawaii Mainland I think theres still unfinished bussiness lol!!!:)


  13. P Parent May 1, 2018 8:23 pm

    Why is it that our Buff and Blues gotta play at a weed field in Waianae and Kahuku and St.Louis gets the Stadium? Are we fodder for OIA?


  14. Frank May 1, 2018 11:33 pm

    Why are the Open Games not being played at the Aloha Stadium? Many of the games attendance will exceed the school facilities


  15. Falcon Future May 2, 2018 8:19 am

    ^^^ This was discussed earlier. The OIA agreed to this schedule only if they could host games and keep the money in the OIA. If you add up the parking, tickets and concession stand money, that is some cash that these schools need. I’m talking about the schools like Waianae, Farrington, Campbell.


  16. ILH May 2, 2018 11:37 am

    Pun vs RR game going to the stadium. Overheard a little birdie telling another birdie.

    Ive changed my perspective on this whole home field advantage thing. Cant do anything about it, especially since the OIA was going home with their ball if the ILH didnt agree to some concessions.

    OIA schools have no excuse but to win now. Theyre getting the gates, concession and the home field advantage. And the ILH has shown integrity by factoring all games played, OiA and ILH, into determining ILH Champ, unlike, ahem, you know who.

    B>R>>S>E


  17. K May 4, 2018 2:55 pm

    How did st. Francis drop down to division 2 when at the end of last season they were in division 1? Plus the play off was Damien against st. Francis. 🤔


  18. OIA May 8, 2018 1:11 pm

    Why is it that the JV Teams are left out of the schedule?. When can we expect a schedule?., There’s no information on how the JV games will be played. These player’s are the foundation and future of our programs.


  19. Keoni May 15, 2018 1:07 pm

    why aren’t more of the “big” games played at the stadium. Not enough room to accommodate the crowds at some of these schools.


  20. Poi Mtchell July 26, 2018 7:19 pm

    Ok just heard about this,and looked at the upcoming schedules. So OIA only agrees to this if they get their home gates.Look at all the home games they get against ILH with one matchup sprinkled in at Aloha Stadium. for instance why does Millilani get St Louis at home,along with Punahou,and Kamehameha.Kahuku gets Punahou,and Kamehameha at home.imo continued bias against the ILH trying to give Kahuku or any OIA team a chance to win it all. wish the ILH was more competitive cause if it was I say forget this format,and just have a ILH/OIA championship at end of year.again not only much revenue to these home OIA teams,but total crowd home field advantage.
