Cane Fire 2, Hanalei 1 PKs
In the third-place match, Cane Fire defeated Hanalei in a match that was decided by the 11th player taking a penalty kick.
The Cane Fire was leading in the first half with a goal from Sean Kosen, but Hanalei’s Eduardo Araujo scored on a bicycle kid over Darren Kosen to tie the game.
The game remained tied after regulation and after 10 players had gone to the line for PKs. It came down to the goal keepers to shoot it past the opposing keeper. Darren Kosen managed to shoot it past Hanalei’s Parker Blaylock giving Cane Fire the win.
