With wins on Friday night, Mililani and Campbell punched their tickets into the state tournament.

Mililani defeated Leilehua 52-35 to clinch a Division I first-round bye in the upcoming Oahu Interscholastic Association Red playoffs as the division’s No. 2 seed. Campbell rolled to a 52-7 victory over Radford to sew up a first-round bye in the OIA Blue playoffs as that division’s No. 2 seed.

All four teams who have earned OIA byes — Blue champion Kahuku, Red champion Kapolei, Mililani and Campbell – will play in either the state Open division or D-I tournament. Their next games will be in the OIA quarterfinals in two weeks and a win there will put them in the state Open division. OIA D-I quarterfinal losers will go to the D-I states.


One OIA playoff matchup is set for next weekend — Kaiser vs. Farrington at Roosevelt’s Ticky Vasconcellos Stadium.

Kaiser is the No. 6 seed in the Blue and Farrington is the No. 3 seed from the Red.

The outcome of one game — Castle at Kailua — on Saturday night will decide the Red’s No. 4 through 6 seeds and the other three first-round matchups.


This is what the first round of the OIA playoffs will look like if Kailua wins Saturday night:

>> Kaiser (Blue No. 6) vs. Farrington (Red No. 3), at Ticky Vasconcellos Stadium
>> Castle (Red No. 6) at Waianae (Blue No. 3)
>> Aiea (Blue No. 5) at Kailua (Red No. 4)
>> Leilehua (Red No. 5) at Moanalua (Blue No. 4)
