Youth roundup: Team Central wins OT thriller

KALAHEO — During last week’s girls Division II game, Sienna Oldfield excited the Island School Islander fans by coming off the bench to launch the team’s sole trey.

Tuesday night, the sole trey came from Alexis Warnock, who ignited cheers at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center when she launched her long ball from near the half-court mark as the buzzer sounded on the fourth period.

Warnock and Audrey Warner finished with high-point honors for the Islanders at nine apiece.

The effort fell short as Kaulupono took a 29-22 match off the court behind Tiana Joy “TJ” Ramos’ 10 points and Kaye Serapio, who added nine points.

Team Central A’s low post player, Braden Simao, posted a game-high 22 points to lead the gold shirts to its overtime win.

Jaron Acantilado emerged from the physical and fast matchup with 13 points and Kurtis Fujito-Pascua finished with six points in the win.

Team Lihue roared back from an opening deficit behind David Pascua, who bucketed 18 points and Roed Pagatpatan, who dropped 13 points in the overtime effort.

Hanapepe 53, Islanders 21

Dominic Lafratta continued to lead the Island School Islanders as he did Monday night.

Against the Hanapepe Bangahs, Lafratta dropped 13 of the team’s 21 points, but the Island School Islander defense could not stop the Hanapepe Pop Warner Association football-turned-basketball players in its 53-21 win.

Mark Placheta topped Hanapepe’s scoring on 14 points followed by Jeldrick Alupay and Lacin Montemayor, who each added seven points.

Games continue at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center.
