Saint Louis is ranked No. 9 in the USA Today Pacific region football rankings.

The Crusaders (7-1) are getting ready to play in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu Division I championship game against Punahou on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Aloha Stadium. The two teams split two contests so far this year. The Buffanblu (8-1) won the fist time, 51-45, in double overtime.

Saint Louis staved off elimination last Saturday by coming back from a 14-0 deficit to beat Punahou. The winner Saturday also gets the league’s only berth in the D-I state tournament.


The U.S. is divided into five regions for the USA Today rankings — Northeast, Midwest, South, Frontier and Pacific.


The Pacific region is made up of teams from Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

The Crusaders are one spot ahead of No. 10 Liberty (Henderson, Nev.), a team they 43-16 beat at Aloha Stadium in September.

    UNREAL. Kahuku is undefeated and Saint Louis and Mililani getting all the recognition.

    Its because Kahuku’s win/lose records is misleading They haven’t beaten anybody good.

    @Rok. Keep telling yourself that fairy tale. Everybody we play has had great stats and scored choke points…right up until dey get drowned in da Big Red Sea Defense. ALL da teams dat got a big fat goose egg (or one score) vs us scored choke points vs other good teams (Waianae vs Kam, Farrington vs Punahou, Kapolei vs Mililani, etc). AAAAALLL those ‘high-powered’, ‘high scoring’ offenses got SCRAPED by our D.

    But das okay. You keep hating and dreaming. We’ll keep winning on da field…where rankings go to die vs us. #GBR!!

    @Rok888 – And who has Mililani played that was “good”?


  6. Fonoti October 24, 2015 12:28 pm

    @rok, Mililani has beat up on the same teams we did. Kapolei, Farrington, Waianae. Difference is only one of those teams scores on us AND we mercy ruled two of them. The only good team Mililani played was Liberty, and we know how that turned out. Toopid boy

    Vision and Desire like this one is especially for Governor Ige whereas Hawaii’s High School Football is almost at it’s season end and like our varsirty boys have dreams of taking it to the next level and yet we know the latest issues on Hawaii’s homeless is an eye sore, an echo in the ear, and surely a mouth full of no money, no lodging, and no health services and I believe the causes of our government not prompt in taking care of Hawaii’s blatant homeless issues only comes down to funding and as always the political opposition concurrence;..so with what professional camaraderie and obligated sacrifices that took place today whereas to carry out todays H3T TRIATHLON whereas dedicated for those law enforcers who fell in the line of duty; so why not the homeless with the cost/expenses thrown out and policies amended like why not a fund raiser for the homeless populous that are in limbo like how about a one time look the other way, for once waivered operational expenses and bring on the many/all sponsors like to contribute to Hawaii homeless issues like making connections to the many distant Ohanas along with small and big business establishments;…so how about it Governor Ige like by your direction first throw out all the political negativism,..block out the finger pointing and bad mouthing like all your Hawaii sports lovers needs to participate in this one time charity sporting event whereas with the State of Hawaii promoting a Mega Special Ohana football bowl like,…THE KALAKOA KALABASH OHANA BOWL now ask me between who and who,… well how about the State of Hawaii Best High School Senior Football Athletes versus the University of Hawaii,..eh like the seniors got nothing to lose with what UH amounts to this season;…now all it takes is VISION AND DESIRE,..and with people who want to make this happen;..god bless Hawaii Nei.
