After a one-week absence following its loss to ‘Iolani, Damien has crept back into the rankings in the latest Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10.
The Monarchs improved to 6-2 for the season with a 26-12 win over Kailua on Friday at Aloha Stadium. Playing without starting quarterback Jake Holtz, backup Logan Laucio completed 13 of 24 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns and got help from running back Amo Sulu (184 yards, TD), who topped 100 yards rushing for the fifth straight game.
Damien, which replaced Kamehameha at No. 10, held off Lahainaluna for the final spot by a single vote. The Monarchs opened the season with a 38-31 overtime win over the Lunas on Maui.
Kapolei and Kamehameha each received two votes.
The rest of the rankings remain the same with Saint Louis extending its run at No. 1 to 43 weeks in a row. No. 2 Punahou again received all 10 second-place votes and No. 3 Mililani received nine of 10 third-place votes with one fourth-place vote.
The only other vote movement came near the bottom of the rankings as No. 9 ‘Iolani gained eight votes to inch closer to No. 8 Leilehua. The two teams will play Saturday at Aloha Stadium in the first game of a doubleheader.
