Prep Scoreboard

Going into the final two weekends of the regular season, the Oahu Interscholastic Association playoff picture is finally starting to come into focus.

In the Red Conference, defending state champion Kahuku has been the clear favorite all season and kept its hold on first place by cruising past Leilehua 43-8 on Friday to improve to 6-0.

Kailua and Castle are tied for second at 5-1 and meet this Friday in Castle's homecoming game.

Waianae and Mililani, who face each other this week, have recovered from slow starts this season to enter the hunt for the conference's five playoff berths.

Waianae (4-2) won its third straight game Friday with a 12-6 victory over McKinley. The Seariders have a game with Kahuku next week.

Mililani, which started 1-3, has also won three in a row after beating Kaimuki 28-13 on Saturday.

Should the teams above them stumble, Campbell (3-3) could get a shot at the playoffs. But it won't be easy as the Sabers face Kahuku this Friday and McKinley (2-4) next week.

Aiea continues to roll toward the OIA White championship. Na Alii improved to 6-0 with a 40-0 win over Pearl City on Friday. Quarterback Lole Laolagi has thrown 24 touchdown passes entering Friday's game with Kaiser.

Waipahu (6-1) kept pace with Aiea with a 47-21 win over Moanalua on Saturday. The Marauders face Pearl City in their regular-season finale this week.

Roosevelt is also in the title hunt at 5-1 entering Friday's game with Moanalua. The Rough Riders close the season Oct. 25 with a showdown with Aiea at Aloha Stadium.

Radford (5-2) has won four in a row to move into fourth place, but will need help to claim one of the conference's three playoff spots.

In the Interscholastic League of Honolulu, St. Louis (3-0-1) turned in its most complete performance of the season with a 46-17 win over Punahou last Friday. The Crusaders racked up 350 yards in total offense, while holding Punahou to only 53.

Kamehameha (3-0-1) remained tied with St. Louis for the top spot in ILH Division I with a 40-0 win over Damien. Iolani (3-1) is in first place in Division II after its 33-0 win over Pac-Five.

On the Big Island, Konawaena (3-0) beat previously undefeated Honokaa 16-9 on Saturday to set up a West Hawaii showdown with Kealakehe (3-0) this Friday at Old Airport field in Kailua-Kona. Kealakehe had a bye this week.

Maui improved to 2-0 in the second round of the Maui Interscholastic League season with a 12-7 win over King Kekaulike on Friday. First-round champion Lahainaluna had a bye, as did Kauai Interscholastic Federation leader Waimea.

Saturday's games

Mililani 28, Kaimuki 13: The Bulldogs' homecoming was spoiled, as Trey Brown caught two touchdown passes for the Trojans.

Roosevelt 27, Kalaheo 0: Chris Mols passed for 313 yards and three touchdowns as the Rough Riders rolled past the Mustangs.
