After its 38-14 win over ‘Iolani on Friday afternoon, all Punahou can do is wait.

Tonight’s game between Kamehameha and Saint Louis will decide the Buffanblu’s fate in the upcoming ILH playoffs.

If the Warriors win, Punahou gets the top seed. If the Crusaders win, Punahou and Saint Louis will hold identical ILH D-I records of 5-1 and the seeding will come down to a coin toss.


The Crusaders and Buffanblu split their season series. In the first meeting on Sept. 9, Saint Louis won 66-44 behind Tua Tagovailoa’s nine total touchdowns. On Sept. 29, Punahou made defensive adjustments and won 33-20. Both games were played at Aloha Stadium.


“We’ll see. Kamehameha is a great team, so is Saint Louis,” Punahou coach Kale Ane said. “We’ll listen very closely and find out what happens and we’ll find out our fate tomorrow.”


“I don’t know what I feel about that but I think it’s interesting to see how it plays out and where we go from here,” added Buffanblu defensive lineman Miki Suguturaga. “Really just looking forward to that and executing and preparing to do some damage.”

The Warriors and Crusaders kick off at Aloha Stadium at 7:45 p.m.
