KAPAA — Kapaa High School’s varsity girls basketball team defeated Waimea, 36-33 at home on Tuesday night.
“We had a good first half, and then we started making a lot of mistakes at the end of the second half. When we got down by 2 points, we started rushing,” said Warriors head coach William Aki. “Talked to the girls about it. Ball control is everything, especially at the end whether we’re winning or losing. We squeaked by.”
Kapaa junior forward Tori Daligcon-Pomaikai and Waimea senior guard Caitlyn Owen both were their team’s leading scorer with 11 points each.
In the junior varsity game, Kapaa won, 51-33. Tupou Paua scored 14 points for the JV Warriors and Kiarra Palacio scored 12 for the Menehune.
