Kaulupono, Hanakila fly past Team Lihu‘e

Taegan Keep and Joy Milbrand both netted 22 points to lead their respective teams to victory Monday at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center.

Playing under chilly, but not rainy conditions, Keep netted her 22 points, the highest scores of the night, to lead Kaulupono to a 33-26 win over Team Lihu‘e 1 who got 14 points from Samantha Coloma and eight points from Tiana Manera in the County’s Division II youth basketball league.

Helping with the win, Monique Lorenzo tucked away six points, with Lacy Bagain and Jei-Lii Dela Cruz finishing with a pair each.

Koleka Chow and Roelene Mabini each added a pair for the Team Lihu‘e 1 effort.

Both teams were idle for more than a week following the cancellation of last Monday’s games due to the inclement weather blanketing the North Shore.

Saturday’s games were also called off because of the rains.

The girls’ team takes the floor today at the Kilauea Neighborhood Center for the games called on March 5.

Milbrand posted 22 points to lead Hanakila to its 53-11 win over Team Lihu‘e 2 who saw Leona Sime finish with five points.

Joining Milbrand, Jaliyah Cassem finished with six points while Asia Boiser and Angelica Cudiamat each added four points to the Hanakila scoring.

Marissa Layosa bagged four points and Justine Lopez-Henry added a pair behind Sime’s efforts for Team Lihu‘e 2.
