KALAHEO – Northshore’s Randy Vicoy nailed a critical 3-pointer at the fourth quarter buzzer to deadlock their KYBA 17 Under Boys contest 49-49 as Kaua’ians welcomed the Fourth of July weekend by turning out in force to watch four contests played at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center on Thursday night.
