PUHI — Kauai High School’s girls soccer team picked up its second win of the Kauai Interscholastic Federation season with a 6-0 win over Island School on Wednesday afternoon in brisk, blustery winds at the Island School fields.
Kassidie Bukoski broke a long defensive slugfest in the 29th minute to get the Red Raiders on the scoreboard with a long hook-in from about 30 yards out, the shot being unexpected from the Voyager defenders who put strong pressure on Kauai’s forwards from the opening kick off.
Less than a minute later, Kehela Ventura found the net in traffic — the first of three goals she scored in the first half.
Kauai left the field at the break with a 4-0 lead en route to its 6-0 final.
With the win, Kauai has already piled up 18 points over its opponents while allowing no goals.
The team faces Kapaa, its final opponent in the four-team KIF league, Saturday at Vidinha Stadium starting at 3:30 p.m.
Island School will host Waimea with the varsity boys opening at 10 a.m. followed by the girls taking the field at noon.
