Kahuku’s 35-7 loss to No. 1 Bishop Gorman did absolutely nothing in the minds of voters in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10.
The Red Raiders remained No. 1 in the state receiving 14 of 15 first-place votes for the fourth consecutive week. The lone non-Kahuku first-place vote remained with Saint Louis, which holds steady at No. 2 after a 35-3 win over Kamehameha at Aloha Stadium.
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns against the Warriors to move to sixth on the career passing list with 6,699 yards.
Punahou bounced back from a 64-44 loss to the Crusaders with a 49-24 win over ‘Iolani to remain at No. 3. The 24 points allowed by Punahou were the most against an ‘Iolani team since 2009.
Waianae shut out Radford, 54-0, to remain at No. 4 with Kapolei enjoying a bye week to get healthy at the receiver position. The Hurricanes knocked off Kailua 34-20 to win their fourth straight game. QB Taulia Tagovailoa threw three touchdown passes, including his first to a receiver not named Jaymin Sarono or Wyatt Perez, and is up to 1,894 passing yards on the season.
The first change took place at No. 6 as Farrington, which was sixth two weeks before dropping to No. 8 last week, moved back up two spots after scoring a school-record 69 points in a blowout of Nanakuli. Mililani, which was idle, remained at No. 7 and Kamehameha dropped two spots to No. 8 after the 32-point loss to the Crusaders.
The neighbor islands hold the final two spots in this week’s rankings with Division II Kapaa remaining at No. 9 and Baldwin taking over the No. 10 spot by one vote over ‘Iolani.
Konawaena also received a vote.
