Nobrega saves the day, West Kaua‘i advances
By Edmund Acoba – Special to The Garden Island
It was a close one, but West Kaua‘i’s Nainoa Nobrega slapped the difference maker over the left-center field fence to put the bronco all-stars up for good, 5-2 over a tough Morgan Hill squad from California. Morgan Hill drew first blood by going up 1-0 in the first frame. After a tough defensive struggle in the second and third innings, West Kaua‘i scored two runs to jump ahead of the Californians 2-1 at the end of four. The rally started with Trent Allianic drawing a walk. Then, Nobrega cracked a single to left field moving Allianic to second base. Kalani Fernandez was the next player to get on base, loading the bags. With one out and the bases juiced, Micah Rita executed a perfect double squeeze, scoring Allianic and Nobrega. Morgan Hill trotted back in the top of the fifth inning when one of its players got a hit up the middle and subsequently advanced to third on a failed pick-off attempt at first and scored later on a balk. The game was knotted up going into the bottom of the fifth inning. West Kaua‘i sealed the deal with two outs and no one on base in the fifth, as back to back singles from Michael Acoba and Allianic enabled the big Hanapepe slugger (Nobrega) to launch a bomb over the fence for the eventual win. Both teams were not able to produce any more runs in the last two innings due to great defensive work on both ends.
