There wasn’t a whole lot of movement in the latest Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Media Top 10 poll released Monday.
All 10 teams in last week’s poll remain ranked with the top six staying the same. Kailua, Waianae and Kapaa all jumped one spot with Kapolei slipping to No. 10. The Hurricanes, despite their 1-3 record, remained in the top 10, finishing one vote ahead of Radford and two votes better than both Moanalua and ‘Iolani.
Nanakuli also received a vote.
Mililani again held all but one first-place vote with the other going to Kahuku. The Trojans will play a team outside of the state of Hawaii for the first time in the 40-year history of the program on Friday when they travel to Henderson, Nev., to play Liberty High, which lost 43-16 to Saint Louis on Saturday at Aloha Stadium.
After giving up 528 total yards to the Crusaders, who sat quarterback Tua Tagovailoa before the end of the third quarter, the Patriots now have to face Mililani QB McKenzie Milton, who threw for a school-record 515 yards in a 67-21 win over Kapolei. The Trojans are averaging 63.0 points per game.
Also heading to the mainland this week are the third-ranked Punahou Buffanblu, who play Del Oro (Calif.) Friday night at Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of California-Berkeley. Punahou has won six straight games against out-of-state teams dating back to a 1999 loss to Edison (Calif.).
No. 2 Saint Louis, No. 4 Kahuku and No. 5 Kamehameha all have the weekend off while sixth-ranked Farrington plays at Aiea on Friday.
