Youth Basketball League - Fryers
And then the rains came, washing out two days of South Maui Youth Basketball League games--Fryers Division games on Monday, March 5, and Midgets Division games on Tuesday, March 6. (Scores from the Midgets Division games played on Saturday, March 10, at Pa'ia Gym will be included in next week's issue.)
With a break in the weather, the Fryers (7- and 8-year-olds) were able to play their last regular season games on the Wednesday, March 7. Trailing by 10 points late in the second half, the Bulls rallied for a 38-36 win over the Aces. Speedy Shane Taylor was the high scorer for the Bulls--and game the entire game--with 16 points. Bode Woodard added 10 points. Daven Baraodian and LJ Renon scored 12 points each to lead the Aces.
The Ninjas used a balanced scoring attack to pass the Titans 30-14. Evan Wellerstein and Mackenzie Fakavai were top scorers for the Ninjas with six points each, with four other players scoring four points apiece. Raymond Steben scored eight points and Sylas Sablas had four points to pace the Titans. The Rebels outran the Geckos 40-22 despite a game-high 16 points from the Geckos' Noe Pena.

The Rebels finished atop the standings with a record of 9-1. Fryers Division playoffs were held Monday and Wednesday, March 12 and 14, at Kamali'i School. The results will be in next week's issue.
Youth Basketball League - Jr. Midgets
It was a cool, windy night at Kalama Park for the Jr. Midgets (9- and 10-year-olds) on the Thursday, March 8. Trailing 21-4 at halftime, the gritty Kihei Sharks fought back. Angel Pauole scored the first eight points of the second half to help cut their deficit to 21-12. The Eagles recovered and went on to beat the Sharks 34-18. Mitchell Hirose and Henry Johnson were top scorers for the Eagles with 10 points each. Pauole's eight led the Sharks. The Flames rolled to a 43-10 win over a cold-shooting Bulls team. Cy Tamanaha scored 10 points to pace the Flames, with Kyler Falces-Cachola chipping in six points. Elijah Mertens led the Bulls with six points. In the finale, Johney Magana scored 12 points, and Isaiah Tanner four to lead the Heat to a 22-9 victory over the Aces. Perdon Abner scored eight points for the Aces.
The Kalama Park tennis court-resurfacing project is underway. The South Maui Parks office wants to remind the tennis-playing public that the six courts at Waipuilani Park are open and available for use.
