The ILH released its high school football schedule on Monday, helping to fill out the updated prep schedule for the entire state.

You can read the most updated 2018 Hawaii high school football schedule here.

The ILH will only have a playoff in the Open Division with the No. 2 seed playing the No. 3 seed on Oct. 19. The winner will then play the No. 1 seed for the overall ILH title on Oct. 27 at Aloha Stadium.

The team with the best record in Division I between Damien and ‘Iolani and Division II between St. Francis and Pac-Five will receive a state tournament berth. No champion will be officially recognized because there are only two teams in each division. If the teams finish tied in the standings, a playoff will be held.

The ILH will play a tripleheader at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 15 with the Division II game between St. Francis and Pac-Five at 2 p.m., followed by Damien against ‘Iolani at 4:45 p.m. and Punahou against Saint Louis at 7:30.

Kamehameha will play Punahou at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 28 and Saint Louis will play the Warriors at Aloha Stadium on Oct. 12.

    DIVISION? Two teams? That’s not a division, that’s a pairing.

    There maybe 10,000 people attending some of the OIA-ILH Open-Division 1 Football games in 2018. These games should be played at Aloha Stadium, not at the OIA home field. Aloha Stadium provides easy access for everybody; the security, the snack bars, and the restroom are all excellent. This cannot be said of the high school football fields where access usually requires driving through poorly lighted, narrow, winding 2 lane streets in a highly populated residential districts, where parking lots are manned by untrained volunteer attendants, where grass or dirt surface are usual, where cars get mired in mud during the rainy season, where security barriers for fans often consist of a mere yellow tape, where Emergency Medical Units and Hospital Facilities are not readily available, where.Snack bar and food personnel are volunteers who may not meet the Department of Health standards, where lavatories often have long lines especially in front of the ladies restroom in games where less than 5,000 people are attending, and where visiting teams usually have inadequate facilities during half time. To the ILH leadership, all OIA-ILH Open-Division games should be played at Aloha Stadium.

    I’m wondering if the old rivals, St. Louis Crusaders verses the Mckinley High tigers for the “poi pounder”…..Punahou verse Roosevelt for the “paint brush.” Kamehameha verses Farrington high for the champion of Kalihi valley (I presume that was called). Don’t know of other rivals inthe Old ILH..

    concern parent is very correct

    Concern parent “Lol”
    Sounds like an ILH parent is scared to travel to Waianae, Farrington or any OIA school😂
    Try being a Real parent and enjoy watching your kid play at any field like the pop warner or big boys league dirt fields with limited parking, concessions with hard working parents volunteering to cook and using park bathrooms with homeless people living in it. Welcome to the REAL WORLD 🌎 Enjoy it!!!

    My son plays for an ILH team. As for me, i am excited to go back and watch a game in a real high school atmosphere. Cant wait for the season to start

    @Concern Parent Forget about it! It’s about economics. When the OIA teams hosts games at their home field, the ticket sales money goes directly to the league coffers. The only money they really make are from the concessions. When they play at the stadium the league has to pay for the rental of the stadium and everything else, such as staffing, cleanup, etc. The OIA does not get anything from concessions. When the ILH agreed to go into this new Open Division setup they also agreed to the fact that some games would be played at OIA fields. Sure there are logistical problems such as parking, seating, etc. However, it just gives the “old school” feeling of having games at home fields.

    It’s all about the scripts and who has the leverage

  9. Concern Parent July 12, 2018 11:41 pm

    No, its not about the scripts. Its about access, safety, security, and sanitation. And the OIA-ILH would probably gross $50,000 from games with 10,000 fans. And just like today’s news about the Marco Polo Condo Board of Directors being responsible for the death and injury involved in the condo fire, would the OIA-ILH be responsible for any lack of safety, security or sanitation issues.

    1) You act like all people who send their kids to private schools are rich and don’t live check to check. Get plenty kids whose families are way better off financially going to public schools

    2) DeForrest Buckner’s parents were “ILH parents”, and they live in Wai’anae. Manti Te’o’s parents, same, Kahuku. And many of the ILH’s top players come from those areas or similar areas. So you’re a donkey for thinking ILH parents scared to go to those areas when many of them live in those areas
