Farrington won a three-team coin toss today for the last playoff spot in the OIA Open Division, Govs coach Daniel Sanchez said.

The Governors (2-8 overall) finished in a three-way tie with Kapolei and Waianae at 1-4 in league games.

Farrington will play at top-seeded Mililani on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. No. 2 seed Campbell (7-3, 4-1) will host No. 3 seed Kahuku (6-3, 3-2) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. in a rematch of the Sabers’ 28-27 win in Ewa Beach two weeks ago.

The coin flip was held today at Central Oahu Regional Park, site of the OIA cross country championship meet.

Kapolei finishes its season 3-7 overall. This is the fifth consecutive year the Hurricanes season ends after a loss to Kahuku.

Waianae finishes its season 1-8 overall, marking the worst season in school history. Waianae was 1-7 in its first year of varsity football in 1959.

    Go get ‘em Govs! Although It’s going to be a tall task against Mililani, having the opportunity to be in the playoffs is going to help your program. You guys have nothing to lose. Play with Kalihi Pride & Passion. You earned this. Now go and prove the critics wrong.

    Come on, 2-8 and they qualify for the playoffs! No need to play just pack it in. Farrington is not going to beat Mililani. Just a wasted of resources. Why do they let a 2-8 team into playoff? it makes better sense to just have the OIA open regular season with a first round bye, then the winner of the semi final play them the following week. Unbelievable to give a 2-8 team on a downward spiral a playoff berth.

    Like all the guys on here say…it’s the ILH agenda lol. That’ll never happen in the ILH. They just want oia teams to win everything
