Trent Allianic gave up no runs, walked one batter and struck out 10 in Kaua‘i High School’s game one win over Kapa‘a High School yesterday, 1-0. Kaua‘i would also win game two, 7-6.
“It was one of the finest games in the KIF played this season,” said the Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation’s official scorekeeper Glenn Mickens. “It was a crime to see anyone have to lose that game.”
