After putting up 50 points against No. 10 ‘Iolani in a 30-point win on Saturday, Kamehameha jumped two spots to No. 6 in the latest Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10 rankings released Monday.
Kahuku remained at No. 1 with 14 of 15 first-places votes, followed by No. 2 Saint Louis, which was impressive on offense in a 64-44 win over No. 3 Punahou last Friday at Aloha Stadium.
Crusaders quarterback Tua Tagovailoa accounted for nine touchdowns in a win over the Buffanblu that wasn’t enough to steal away any first-place votes from the Red Raiders.
Kahuku remained at No. 17 in this week’s USA Today Super 25 rankings and entered the top 25 at No. 24 in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 rankings also released Monday.
Punahou remained at No. 3 despite the loss, followed by Waianae and Kapolei.
The Warriors, who have been ranked as high as No. 4 this year, leaped Farrington into the No. 6 spot. Mililani also jumped a spot to No. 7, followed by the Governors, who dropped two spots to No. 8 despite a 44-13 win over Castle on Saturday.
Reigning Division II state finalist Kapaa remained at No. 9 with ‘Iolani holding onto its No. 10 spot by three votes over Baldwin. Damien received two votes and Moanalua got one.
Two games involving two ranked teams are on the slate this week in (where else?) the ILH, as No. 10 ‘Iolani plays a 2 p.m. afternoon contest at No. 3 Punahou on Saturday. No. 2 Saint Louis faces No. 6 Kamehameha at Aloha Stadium at 6 p.m.
The game of the week — and the season — takes place Saturday in Las Vegas when Kahuku faces the nation’s No. 1 team in Bishop Gorman. Kickoff is 4 p.m. Hawaii time.
