Papalina wins in final youth game

Katlyn Butac-Kahawai lit the nets in the fourth period and dropped two bombs from outside the 3-point arc Thursday night during the county’s Division II youth basketball games at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center.

The pair of treys trimmed the Westside 12-3 deficit and gave Butac-Kahawai high-point honors in the Division II girls matchup.

But the effort came up short as Team Lihue stayed ahead to claim a 29-15 victory behind Marissa Layosa’s 11 points. Tia Fulks dropped eight points and Tiana Manera ended with six points.

Deyshia Kenney helped Butac-Kahawai’s effort with three points.

Kauai Ballers 24, Island School Islanders 12

Lilya Cummings hit a 3-ball to start the second half, eventually finishing with five points in the Ballers’ 24-12 win over the Island School Islanders.

Facing a 14-0 halftime deficit, Sienna Oldfield ignited the Islanders with a pair of treys in the fourth period with Audrey Warner and Alexis Warnock, who dropped pairs to account for the Islanders’ scoring.

Angelica Cudiamat topped the Kauai Ballers with 10 points, followed by Jaliyah Casem and Cummings, who added five points each.

Papalina 47, Aloha State Warriors 26

Trey Taba dropped a game-high 13 points to lead Papalina to a 47-26 win over the Aloha State Warriors in the final Division II youth game of the season.

Christopher Cromartie added 11 points and Ryan Banasihan finished with 10 points to round out the Papalina scorecard.

Kesomi Fonua topped the Aloha State Warriors effort with nine points. Raffy Perono had seven points.

Karen Matsumoto of the Kauai Youth Basketball Association, coordinating the scorekeeping and game officials for the county in the youth league, said with the season complete, many of the players are registered to take advantage of the Dennis Agena and Kalakaua Basketball clinic, which opens Tuesday and runs through Thursday at the Bernice Hundley Gym in Kapaa.
