KAPAA — Analeigha Carvalho-Toloai powered four hits and seven RBIs to lead the Kapaa Warriors to a 14-4 win over Kauai High School Wednesday afternoon at the Kapaa High School softball facility.
The win sets up a critical date Saturday when Kauai High School faces the Waimea Menehune in a twin bill at Isenberg Park starting at 10 a.m. where first round supremacy could be at stake.
Kapaa jumped to the lead in the first inning, answering a run by Kauai High School, and stayed in the lead for the remainder of the game, exploding for seven runs on four hits in the fourth inning. Kalia Kaui, handling the pitching chores for Kapaa, picked up a solid win on the mound, holding the Red Raiders to its four runs on five hits while striking out four Raider batters, two going down in the sixth inning.
Carvalho-Toloai, in leading Kapaa, was a perfect 4-for-4 in the box, connecting for doubles in all of her at-bats.
She was joined by Jordan Lopez, who finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and scoring once. Kaui, in addition to handling the mound, finished with two RBIs on no hits, but two fielder’s choices.
