BIIF softball: Waiakea fights off Kohala 2-0
Waiakea’s Jourdan Perreira and Kohala’s Mikayla Kekoa provided a new twist in BIIF softball: a good ol’ fashion pitcher’s duel. Perreira came out on top with six scoreless innings Saturday in Kapaau as the Warriors won 2-0.
Waiakea (8-0) scored single runs in the first and fourth. Tierra Teves led off the game with a walk, moved to third on Kristi Hirata’s single and scored on a passed ball. Perreira led off the fourth with a single to center and two outs later she scored from second on Halee Sweat’s single to center.
In the circle, Perreira allowed just two hits and a four walks with a strikeout. Sweat nailed down the save, coming on after Perreira walked the leadoff batter in the bottom of the seventh, retiring all three hitters she faced with a strikeout.
Kekoa was the tough-luck loser for the Cowgirls (5-4), scattering five hits with seven strikeouts and a walk.
Hirata was 2 for 3 for Waiakea, which hosts Konawaena on Monday in a matchup of undefeated divisional leaders.
Kamehameha 15, Kealakehe 7
The visiting Warriors produced 14 hits, led by Taylor Sullivan, who went 4-for-5 with four runs and three RBIs. Kamehameha tried to give the game away, gift-wrapping seven runs to the Waveriders on eight errors. Kealakehe recorded only one hit in the game.
Defense is a concern for the Waveriders. After a shaky defensive outing against Konawaena earlier in the week, the team committed four errors at very untimely moments against Kamehameha.
“Defensively, we could not pull off a lot of the routine plays,” said Kealakehe head coach Loni Mercado. “We will work on some defensive strategies and hopefully they can get their mind right after a day off.”
Keaau 15, HPA 5
Caitlyn Calhoun went the distance in the six-inning TKO victory, and she added two RBIs.
Jetta Silva also had two RBIs for the Cougars (4-4).
Hillary Connors took the loss for the Division II Ka Makani (1-6).
Konawaena 20, Pahoa 0
Led by the unhittable Teizha Kaluna in the circle, the Lady Wildcats needed only three innings to knock of Pahoa 20-0. Kaluna threw a no-hitter, while striking out six.
Offensively, Konawaena needed only seven hits as the Daggers hurt themselves with nine errors and 10 walks. Erin Kaimuloa Bates led the Wildcats at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI. Shaylann Marie Grace only had one hit, but knocked in five runs, while also scoring three times.
