Hawaii & California State Champs collide in Saint Louis vs Narbonne rematch

Fill out my online form.

Winners of 16 straight games and back to back state championships, top-ranked Saint Louis has a chance to make a national statement on Friday, as the Crusaders will play host to a reigning California Division-1A state champ at Aloha Stadium.

One week after a 69-6 season opening win over Waianae, the three time defending ILH champions will face-off with Narbonne of Harbor City.

The game will serve as a rematch of a 56-50 Saints win last season where current Rainbow Warrior Chevan Cordeiro threw six touchdown passes on the Gauchos.

“The feeling around practice is intense. We’re just excited to play a new mainland team is going to be exciting. We played them last year but overall it’s just high intensity right now. We’re just gonna play how we play. Worry about ourselves and not worry about them. We kind of know what they’re going to do. How they’ll play and what are there formations so we’re excited you know? We just want to play anybody and everybody. I just can’t wait to get out there and play them” said senior defensive lineman and USC commit Gino Quinones.

Since last year’s game, the two teams are a combined 17-0 and both went on to win their respective state’s divisional championship.

For the Crusaders the showdown is a chance to represent not just the slopes of Kalaepohaku but all of Hawaii under the Friday night lights in Halawa.

“We want to represent Hawaii the best we can. State champs last year but that don’t mean anything, we just got to come back this year and see what we got” said quarterback Jayden DeLaura. “I watched a lot of film, lot of hours of film and I’ve seen that they got a lot of talent and speed, and we have talent and speed too so we just got to see how it works out during the game” 

“Narbonne is a really well coached team with a lot of players with speed up in California, they’re really tall and they have a lot of speed but I trust my boys that we could get this dub and we just want to show them that Hawaii has good ballers too” added cornerback Korvin Feagins.

Kickoff between the Crusaders and Gauchos is set for 7:00pm.

The game will not be televised but will be broadcast on the radio at AM 1500.
