LIHUE — The Kauai Senior Softball League found young legs on old bodies with big bats as a near-record 208 runs were scored in the eight games at the Peter Rayno Softball Park and the Isenberg Softball Stadium. Nine teams scored in double figures including a 14-13 nail biter. Kawaihau takes top honors, crossing the plate 31 times in their game. It was not all smooth sailing for all of the teams with both ball parks reporting serious injuries to several senior ball players.
