Sources: ILH considering end to D1-D2 matchups

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - There have been nine football games this season between Interscholastic League of Honolulu Division 1 and Division 2 schools and D1 teams have won all matchups by an average of 43 points.

That may not be the case next year as the ILH is considering an end to the lopsided matchups.

Multiple sources told Hawaii News Now on Monday afternoon that the league is considering getting rid of the inter-division matchups altogether.

The motivation behind the discussion is not only the scores, but protecting the safety of the student-athletes.

If this policy were passed, it's not yet known how the schedules would change, how many games each school would play or how it would work evenly with only three schools in D1 (Punahou, Kamehameha, St. Louis) and four in D2 (Iolani, Pac-5, Damien, St. Francis).

The ILH is expected to make a decision on whether to implement a change shortly after the season ends in December.
