Baldwin rolls, Kamehameha wins, my top 10
September 6, 2011 - Robert Collias
On a sleepy Labor Day Monday at the Collias abode, a couple thoughts on the two MIL football games I covered this weekend popped into my head.
First, after watching Baldwin simply dismantle Lahainaluna, the team that has been for more than a decade and looks like again the second-best team in the league, 40-0, where will this Baldwin defense end up on the all-time list? The best defense I have covered in 21 years in the MIL is easily the 2004 Bears, who had five shutouts behind Kaluka Maiava. This Baldwin defense could match or surpass that shutout number if Friday night is any indication because the rest of the league isn't great from what I have seen.
And Upcountry, an important win for Kamehameha Maui over cross-the-street rival King Kekaulike. It came on the day that Maui serviceman Kraig Vickers was memorialized at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Vickers' brother, Robert Vickers, is an assistant coach for Kamehameha Maui.
And here is how I voted for the state top-10 polls for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and Scoringlive.com: 1. Kahuku, 2. Farrington, 3. Leilehua, 4. Kamehameha Oahu, 5. Iolani, 6. Campbell, 7. Punahou, 8. Baldwin, 9. Waimea, 10. Aiea.
Let me know what you think.
