HANAPEPE — Kalani High School’s Jordan Okuhara fired off four goals to lead the Falcons to a 10-2 win Saturday during a preseason soccer match contested at the Hanapepe Stadium.

The match was one of two scheduled for Kalani as they faced Kauai High School Saturday afternoon at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Sports Park in the Lydgate Park complex.

Okuhara found the net in the first four minutes of play, getting past Waimea goalkeeper Luana Gadingan. She got her second goal at the 17th minute to lead the Falcons to a 4-0 halftime bulge.

Daysha-Ann Sodium found the second Kalani goal at the 11th minute, and Sydney Griffith closed the first half with a goal in the 39th minute.

Waimea came back to score two goals in the second half, but could not match the Falcons’ six goals despite switching its goalkeeper to Leiko Yamauchi.

Jazziana Ahuna found the net at the 47th minute to put Waimea on the boards after Ashley Kouchi and Okuhara scored for Kalani to open the second half, Kouchi making her dent at the 42nd minute and Okuhara netting her hat trick at the 45th minute.

The Falcons continued to pepper the net with goals scored by Okuhara, Cassandra Zayas, Viani Southichack, and Sheree Tam before the Menehune’s Keana Hailey Silva found the net at the 80th minute for Waimea’s second goal.

No results were available from the Kauai High School matchup.
