Had they not kept their composure when the going got super rough in the second half at Aloha Stadium, […]

The streaks live on for Saint Louis. Friday night’s 21-14 victory over Punahou at Aloha Stadium gave the Crusaders their fifth straight ILH title and 36th consecutive victory overall. But nobody put both of those in jeopardy this year like the Buffanblu did. No. 1 Saint Louis (10-0) has breezed through its 2019 schedule this season for the most part, with the two exceptions each one-possession wins over No. 2 Punahou. After eking by 25-19 on Sept. 20, coach Cal […]

Saint Louis-Punahou II: Can Buffanblu stave off elimination?

By Paul Honda on October 31, 2019

The one-week suspension of Saint Louis linebacker Nick Herbig is the only guarantee when the top-ranked Crusaders meet No. 2 Punahou on Friday night at Aloha Stadium. Punahou (9-1) has its back to the wall as the second-place team during the regular season. The Buffanblu need a win tonight, which would make them the playoff-tournament winner.
