Although the regular season hasn’t ended in both Division I and Division II, the OIA playoffs are set after Saturday night’s games.

No. 1-ranked Kahuku finished off an undefeated regular season with a 49-23 win over Campbell on Saturday night in Ewa Beach. The Red Raiders (6-0) will play No. 4 seed Waianae (3-3) in an Open Division semifinal game on Saturday, Dec. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at Skippa Diaz Stadium.

No. 2 seed Mililani (4-1), which saw its game against Farrington on Saturday night canceled because the lights went out at John Kauinana Stadium, is currently scheduled to host No. 3 seed Campbell (4-2) on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The site of that game could change depending on the lighting situation.

The Open Division schedule was announced on the Spectrum OC16 broadcast after the end of the Kahuku-Campbell game.

In Division I, Aiea (3-1) will play Moanalua (4-1) in two weeks for the OIA Division I title after earning its first win over Waipahu (2-2) since 2006 in impressive fashion Saturday night, handling the Marauders 38-7.

Aiea has won three games in a row for the first time since 2009 when it last played in an OIA championship game, losing to Moanalua in the OIA D-II final.

Na Alii lost to Na Menehune 28-25 back in October.

“When we played Moanalua the first time, after the game I told Coach (Vincent Nihipali) that we’ll play them again,” Aiea coach Wendell Say said Saturday. “We should have won that first game, but what happens happens.”

Division II still has two weeks of the regular season left to go, but the final is also decided. Undefeated Kaiser (6-0), which still has two games to play, will face Radford (6-1) in a rematch of a 34-14 victory at John Velasco Stadium on Nov. 5.

That game will take place the weekend of Dec. 17-18.

The Rams are one game up in the loss column of both Kalani (4-2) and Pearl City (4-2), but even if the Rams lose to Nanakuli on Dec. 10, they own the tiebreaker over both teams by virtue of their head-to-head wins.

    What’s up with Mililani? Two weeks ago issue with lights with Kahuku game. Ahhhhhh, 2 weeks to fix it! Instead they cancel game with Farrington. Gets an extra rest week that others didn’t, incomplete season. Oh, but they will fix it because in playoff, they get home field advantage. Scam.

    Easy HECO technician…how is it an advantage having not played a game for couple of weeks? Ever heard of ring rust?
