Waimea keeps winning into Round 2

Waimea 59, Kaua‘i 34 – Lorinne Lagoc-Agrade led the Lady Menehune with 14 points as Waimea continued its winning streak with a 59-34 victory over Kaua‘i High School last night at the Raiderdome.

Waimea (1-0 Round 2, 5-0 overall) got a boost with a strong showing from sisters Erin and Mollie Connelly combining for 4 points and six rebounds in the first quarter.

At the same time, however, Kaua‘i was doing without its own set of powerhouse sisters Kathleen and Kelsey Cadiente as they were absent for personal issues until the second quarter. But even with the Cadientes back at work, Waimea enjoyed a surge from its players posting five 3-pointers total in that quarter. Waimea would go up 20 points going into the half at 34-14.

Jayme Jacinto sunk three 3-pointers and finished with 11 points, four rebounds, two blocks and a steal. Mollie Connelly finished with 10 points and seven rebounds. Sheana Mata posted 8 points.

Offensively for Kaua‘i (0-2, 0-6), Kathleen Cadiente finished with 10 points — all of them coming in the second half. Janessa Grady finished with 8 points and was 5-for-6 from the free throw line.

Jennifer Albuja led the Raiders in rebounds with seven.

In the junior varsity game, Waimea defeated Kaua‘i 32-22. The Lady Menehune were led by Jazzelyn Bradbury with 8 points, followed by Fiare Moe with 6.

Kaua‘i got within 3 points in the third quarter before Waimea jumped to a 10-point lead. Then Waimea went on a 9-0 run before Kaua‘i’s Kayla Perez broke the Raiders out of their rut, sinking a pair of free throws.

Christina Banach led the Raiders with 8 points followed by Perez who had 7.

The next set of girls basketball games will be on Tuesday when Waimea hosts Kapa‘a High School at the Clem Gomes Gym.
