When evaluating the OIA in football this season, voters are unanimous in who they think is No. 1.
After that, it’s anybody’s guess.
The top three teams in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10 have not changed since the preseason with Kahuku again receiving 14 of 15 first-place votes to rank No. 1 in the state for the sixth consecutive week.
Saint Louis, which rolled ‘Iolani last Friday, and Punahou, which dominated Kamehameha last Thursday, are ranked second and third heading into Friday night’s game at Aloha Stadium.
Kapolei’s 40-12 win over Mililani last night shook things up after that with Waianae jumping one spot to No. 4 and the Hurricanes leapfrogging Farrington, Kamehameha and Mililani to No. 5.
Kapolei was also ranked No. 5 after the first week of the season, matching its highest ranking ever in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser poll.
Farrington, Kamehameha and Mililani all finished within five votes of each other with the Govs landing at No. 6, followed by the Warriors and Trojans.
Mililani dropped to No. 8 and is two spots behind Farrington despite sharing the same record and beating the Governors just 10 days ago.
Division II Kapaa jumped ahead of ‘Iolani by a single vote to finish No. 9, followed by the Raiders.
Baldwin and Kailua also received eight votes each.
Here’s this week’s schedule for ranked teams:
>> No. 1 Kahuku at Radford, 7:30 p.m., Friday
>> No. 2 Saint Louis vs. No. 3 Punahou at Aloha Stadium, 7:45 p.m., Friday
>> No. 4 Waianae at Aiea, 7:30 p.m., Friday
