Mililani, Hawaii’s top-ranked high school football team, stopped Oahu Interscholastic Association Blue rival Campbell 49-21 on Thursday, but still fell two spots in the MaxPreps national computer rankings released Sunday.

Both Saint Louis, a 55-6 winner over Fagaitua of American Samoa, and idle Punahou dropped seven spots, but are still in the top 50.

Farrington, by virtue of its 52-8 rout of ‘Iolani, got some extra love this week in the rankings and moved up 622 spots to No. 373.


The Raiders took the largest tumble in the national scene among the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Top 10 teams, falling 665 spots to No. 1,341.
