The top seven teams in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top 10 remain unchanged this week.

Chances are that won’t be the case next Monday.

Two huge games in the OIA this weekend take place on consecutive nights. Friday marks the showdown between No. 1 Kahuku and No. 4 Waianae while Saturday features a fascinating tilt between No. 7 Farrington and No. 6 Mililani.

The Red Raiders (2-0) remain No. 1 with 13 out of 15 first-place votes. Kahuku received some national accolades on Monday when it broke into the USA Today Super 25 rankings at No. 25.

Saint Louis (1-0), which received the other two first-place votes, holds steady at No. 2 following a 49-7 win over Hilo on Saturday. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa finished 12-for-16 for 285 yards and four touchdowns (1 rush) in one action of work.

Idle Punahou (1-0) remains third, followed by the Seariders (3-0) and Kamehameha (1-1).

The Trojans (2-0) and Governors (2-0) also held tight with Kapolei (2-1) at No. 8, followed by ‘Iolani (2-0) at No. 9 and Kailua (1-1) dropping to No. 10.

The Surfriders stayed in the top 10 receiving two more votes than Division II Kapaa (2-0), which received six votes. Konawaena and Baldwin received four votes each.

    Big games this week!! They should have done a double header at the stadium with Mililani vs Farrington at 5pm and Kahuku vs Waianae at 7:30..the draw at the gate would have been huge.

    @chloropiciron that would be nice but the four schools and the OIA would lose out because the stadium would benefit from ticket and concession sales, not the kids….

    @Alpha totally agree. The same can be said for OC16 airing the games, does the schools get any kickback from the sponsorships that OC16 has for broadcasting the games? I know they give scholarships, but the money from the gate draw/ concessions would benefit the school more. the crowds are sparse, especially at the schools fields, when the games is being broadcasted live.

    And who determines if/and when the games are played at the stadium? Waianae “hosted” Kahuku last year at the stadium during the regular season? That game should have been a home game for Waianae. Does that mean the gate and concession went to Waianae? Kahuku travels well, and Waianae would have greatly benefited from the gate and concession. Just a thought.

    @Chloroform and +Alpha, great rationale yours yet noticing it’s all about drawing profits mainly concession, broadcasting, and at the gate but exclude the travel; still what happen to academics and athletics proven by players who performs to entertain for everyone to enjoy
    and travel is an unattached livelihood on Oahu like everyone spends 1/3 or 23yrs on the road during the course of their life time like driving to and from work; 21st century now like travel to compete off island has been very encouraging for athletes and schools yet funds allocation has been an all around strain yet the community, families, and school all come together to make it possible to meet the game date and time; better then the best scenario whereas all games should be played at stadium like in between UH scheduled games, like why does it need to played only on Friday or Saturday; eh why not make full use of the stadium whereas sitting idle with no game scheduled is poor business management? .

    @tutuKane….. 1) Off Island Travel…… If schools can afford it, they go. Yes every year some teams travel out to play, but it’s not the same team every year due to financial availabilities and scheduling.
    2) Stadium Games……. monies made at high school venues like the concessions can go towards the team (ie: units, “Office Island Trips” etc…) but if the games are at the stadium then that will never be possible.
    3)Why Play On Fri-Sat?…….. Because it’s not a School Night. You notice what time the are done?imagine Waianae going to Kahuku, play and finish around 11 and then going back to waianae… they might as well camp at the school…..
