Cover2 State Rankings

After the warnings of two impending hurricanes caused a switch up in this past weekend’s Hawaii high school football schedule, it was the boys of Kapolei (4-1) who emerged as the biggest threat to the 808 state with a four-spot jump in the Cover2 Division I Power Poll.

The Hurricanes 40-12 win over previous fourth-ranked Mililani (3-1) on a special edition of Hawaii Monday Night Football landed the teal and black at No. 5 in this week’s rankings. The Trojans dropped two spots to No. 6.

Waianae (4-1) returned to the No. 4 spot while the rest of the top three remained unchanged with each team notching a win in their respective games.

With the ILH D-I season entering its second week, a big matchup to watch for will be No. 2 Saint Louis (2-0) taking on No. 3 Punahou (2-0) this Friday night at Aloha Stadium.

In the Cover2 Division II Power Poll, unexplained circumstances brought a mix-up at the bottom of the rankings.

Previously fourth-ranked Damien (3-1) grinded out a 21-16 victory over the previous No. 5 Saint Francis (1-2), but still dropped to the fifth spot. Leap frogging the Monarchs was also the previously ranked No. 5 Pearl City Chargers (3-1) who moved up to No. 4, despite having not played a game this past weekend.

The top three teams remained the same with No. 1 Kapa’a (4-0) and No. 3 Waipahu (3-0) earning victories this past weekend.

Due to the aforementioned weather threats, all BIIF games were postponed until mid-October so No. 2 Konawaena (1-1) did not play a game this weekend.
