Saint Louis made the most of its one game against a nationally-ranked opponent this season and was rewarded for it.

A 47-7 demolition of Narbonne (Calif.) on Friday night at Aloha Stadium was enough to push the Crusaders into the Top 10 of the latest MaxPreps Xcellent 25 released Sunday night.

Saint Louis jumped two spots to No. 10 and is now the third-highest ranked team in the West region behind No. 1 St. John Bosco and No. 2 Mater Dei.

St. John Bosco opened a brand new $7.2 million stadium with a 49-0 victory over Timpview (Utah) while Mater Dei defeated Bishop Amat 42-14 to extend its winning streak to 16 games dating back to 2016.

St. John Bosco will host Mililani on Aug. 31. The Trojans will host the Crusaders on Saturday night.

Saint Louis’ winning streak is at 17 games after a 40-point blowout of Narbonne. The Crusaders have outscored their two opponents this season by a combined score of 116-13.

Saint Louis is also ranked No. 14 by USA Today, which will release its latest rankings early Monday morning.

Narbonne dropped out of the Max Preps top 25. The Gauchos were ranked No. 24 to open the season.

In case you missed it, here are Paul Honda’s video highlights from the game. He also spoke with Saint Louis coach Cal Lee and Narbonne coach Manuel Douglas, which you can watch here.

    Corona Centennial,Bishop Gorman,De la Salle, one of these schools should bite now coming down next year. Excellent reason for wanting to prove themselves in Hawaii and hopefully in the rankings.:) A double header would be special and nice that same day maybe Kahuku, punahou or the Trojans taking on another team from the mainland wow!!!:)

    Bishop Gorman had a Scheduled game but backed out this year. Thank you to Norbonne for stepping up and taking Bishop Gorman spot.

    Best High school team I have ever seen played with my own eyes. They have at least 4 or 5 guys on defense that should be four or five stars. Tuitele is a monster and so as the other guys on defense. The offensive line were just as impressive big strong and can move. Best front seven in HS football. They’re weakness may be lack of speed with the rbs and may be dbs if they were to play Gorman, Bosco but every other positions are fill with 4 and five star athletes.

    I think last year was their best year talent-wise across the board. Probably one of the most talented teams to ever take the field in HI.

    But “best front seven in HS football”??? C’mon now… Not EVERY guy in the front seven is CURRENTLY 4-5 stars… POTENTIALLY? Yes…but that’s a big ‘IF’. I think Bosco, IMG, etc might have something to say about that.

    They’ve looked really good because of the level of their competition to date (i.e. the lack thereof). Let’s see how good they look over the next 3 weeks.

    Da hyperbole is off the charts up in here. lol.

    Toomeke, anyways, awrite….3 kahuku crybabies who probably never went to kahuku nor played football but are living their childhood through making fun of St Louis kids on this site. Paul Honda should ban you for all the crap you always write on here

    To good times….all these guys are just haters of St Louis and crybabies because St Louis is top dog this year. All they can complain about every year is this supposed recruiting so they have to cry like a baby. Notice how we don’t cry about all these transfers coming in from other states like Utah.
