Kamehameha and Saint Louis shared the field at Aloha Stadium on Friday.

On Monday, they share the No. 1 ranking in the Star-Advertiser Football Top 10. Kamehameha upset Saint Louis, 23-21, on Friday. The Warriors garnered seven out of 12 first-place votes from a panel of coaches and media, but Saint Louis still has enough points to share the top spot.

Saint Louis received two first-place votes, as did Mililani. Kahuku nabbed one first-place vote in the most chaotic balloting of the young season. The OIA game schedule is set to begin on Oct. 15 in Open Division and Division II. OIA D-I will begin game play on Oct. 22.

    I dont know why they share the # 1 spot. Either Mililani ( Hawaii all recruit team ) or Kahuku ( home grown polynesians ) should be # 1. This was just one of those games where the favored team just played awful. Saint Louis vs Kam next game will be a blow out by the crusaders. Kamehameha enjoy while you can , because next game aint going to be pretty.
    True statements here.

    The voters have spoken.

    I must say, that was a great win.
    Im just amazed that despite winning all phases of the game, Kam only won by 2 points.

    And how da heck is Waianae still getting a vote?
    *Look for the person wearing the HIFinest shirt with the stunnah shades and fat gold chain*.

    Leileihua was in the D1 ranks with Iolani in previous years. They grew some Balz and moved up to OPEN
    . Huh? ? Dont they want to dominate in D1. Oh wait, Pride.

  5. ??? September 28, 2021 11:44 am

    SMH with whoever votes?
    So basically STL, Punahou & Kamehameha should ALL be ranked #1 since they ALL beat each other! Lol…

    Be careful Eddie K, someone might say you sound angry and that you are not concerned for the safety of the Iolani players.

    Iolani is the original sandbaggers before there was a LahainaLuna.

    I wonder how the coaching staff feels about it, minus Look, cause I know how he feels.
    Must be hard look their friends in the eye, because many of them played and coached elsewhere and know that they no belong where they are at.

  9. ILoveHawaii September 29, 2021 4:14 pm

    I just thought about it today.

    That sure is a savage picture.

    After the restrictions are lifted. They can’t now. Extended period of restrictions set by mayor. Rules.

    Hi Justine,

    Could you lay out the new timeline for those of us not in the know?

    Us people that suck.
