Hilo captured its fourth straight Big Island Interscholastic Federation Division I football championship on Friday night with a 40-3 title-game victory over Waiakea at Wong Stadium.

The Vikings (8-1) and the Warriors (3-8) will move on to the Division I state championship in November.

The BIIF’s Division II championship game is Saturday night at Konawaena. The winner between Konawaena (7-1) and Kamehameha-Hawaii (6-3) moves on to the D-II state tournament.


One more state tournament spot (six in Open, eight in D-I, and six in D-II) could be decided Saturday night, when Baldwin (7-2) and Maui (5-4) play in a Maui Interscholastic League playoff game at War Memorial Stadium. The Bears clinch the MIL D-I title and a D-I state-tourney berth with a win. If the Sabers win, another game between the two teams will be held next weekend to decide it.

Two teams — Waipahu (8-1) and Waialua (6-2) – secured D-II state tournament berths with victories in the OIA D-II semifinals Friday night.
