It was a lively, evenly matched, and enjoyable game to watch. Both teams played well.
The Wailua Shooting Stars had great defense. Mckenzie Lee, Sierra Perry and Lindsey Tresien all did an outstanding job taking turns in the sweeper position. It was smart field positioning which made it challenging for the Red Hots to score. Lindsey Tresion was on fire offensively for the Shooting Stars. She took the ball downfield and barely missed a few attempts at scoring. It must have been the wind? It was great to see her finally prevail and score for her team.
The Red Hots: Jaiden and Kiana Taylor, Cosi Pearce. Mackenzie Barton and Lillian Okamoto all contributed to the team effort by paying attention and playing their best. It was great to hear the sidelined players cheer their team mates on. Jaiden Taylor had an outstanding game. She played great both defensively and offensively and was absolutely thrilled when she scored a goal for her team. Kiana Taylor played incredibly well, too. She had excellent field positioning and assisted her team mate Lillian Okamoto in scoring. Lillian had terrific ball control and scored a few times for her team.
Special thanks goes out to Lindsey Tresion’s Grandma who brought the refreshing blue gatorade ice cubes for all the players to enjoy. Thanks also goes out to coaches Nicole Pezario and Martha Okamoto for modeling good sportsmanship!

High octane aggressive offense was the name of the game, with outstanding play by Hanapepe’s Isaiah Duldalao, Justin Fune, Jace Mamaragan and Chistopher Ishikawa.

Haku Barriga started and ended the game with phenomenal offensive focus, scoring 3 of the 5 Jaguar goals.
He had excellent offensive support from Jaugar’s Chris Rennie and Devon Hartsell whose incessant goal shots kept Koloa defenders Scott Kilcoyne and Elijah Lagundino busy blocking.
Koloa players Nigel Melchor, Matt Myerson, Callum Pedroni and Nicholas Melchor worked hard to keep the ball out of Waimea’s control but Jaguar’s Jacob Jones, Jeremy Atkins, Evan Hensely and Kekai San Agustin-Nordmeier answered back each Koloa offensive push and in the end the Jaguars were victorious! Go Jags! Goals scored: Haku Barriga (3), Kekai Agustin- Nordmeier (1) and Jacob Jones (1).
