Saint Louis continued to hold onto its No. 25 ranking in the latest MaxPreps Xcellent 25 released on Sunday.
The Crusaders (7-0) were idle to start the ILH second round over the weekend. Saint Louis will play Kamehameha, which ended a 10-game losing streak to Punahou with a 44-31 win over the Buffanblu on Friday, for the overall league title on Saturday night at Aloha Stadium. Kamehameha (4-4) would have to beat Saint Louis twice to end the Crusaders’ season.
A victory would give Saint Louis its third straight ILH championship and the league’s lone berth in the Open Division of the state tournament.
Mater Dei, the No. 1 team in the country, beat No. 8 St. John Bosco to improve to 7-0 overall and 2-0 in league play. The Monarchs have played only two games in the Trinity League while more than half of Oahu’s 29 teams are already done for the season.
Bingham (Utah) remains at No. 11. The Miners defeated Kahuku, the No. 2 team in Hawaii, 17-0 earlier this season in the Polynesian Football Classic in Las Vegas.
Bishop Gorman (Nev.) moved up one spot to No. 13.
Here are the full MaxPreps rankings.
