Na Hoku, Wailau 2 best!

WAIMEA-Na Hoku, a team from Mililani, Oahu, defeated the Lady Knights, from

Windward, Oahu, twice to claim the championship of the “B” Bracket

Girls 14-Under ASA state softball championships at the Waimea Canyon Park on

Sunday morning.

Na Hoku entered the fight after Aikane defeated Huahine 7-0

in the first day of the 6-team double elimination tournament leading to the

championship.

Na Hoku went on to hand Aikane a 14-5 defeat while on the

other side of the tree, the Lady Knights defeated Lau`Lima, one of two Kaua`i

teams competing in the tournament, 14-6 before getting past Brush Fire 7-3 to

face Na Hoku for the first encounter.

That contest ended as Na Hoku slipped

past the Windward Oahu team 9-7 as the sun set on Saturday evening, setting up

the Sunday showdown for the title.

Playing behind solid defense and the

pitching of Alexis San Nicholas, Na Hoku defeated the Lady Knights 9-0 for the

championship in a contest that was shortened by the 8-run rule following 4-1/2

innings.

On field A, Wailau 2 defeated Wailau 1 11-2 in a repeat win for

the championship in the “A” Bracket.

Wailau 2 blanked West Kaua`i

5-0 in opening day action to advance while Wailau 1 defeated Hilo 16-2 to meet

Wailau 2 for the first encounter on Saturday afternoon.

That contest ended

with Wailau 2 blanking Wailau 1 5-0 forcing Wailau 1 to meet West Kaua`i on

Sunday morning for third place honors.

West Kaua`i was handed the third

place trophy after being shut down 14-3 by the team from Kapolei,

Oahu.

Earlier, West Kaua`i easily got past Hilo 17-3 after suffering their

first loss at the hands of Wailau 2.
