Monday, July 9, was the beginning of the second round for our Makule Softball League (over age 50), which also meant a switch to Mountainball.
Ben Fischer went three for four, and had three RBIs, including the game winner with one out in the bottom of the seventh as the Braddah's handed Who's On First their first loss of the season 7-6. Nick Poree went two for four, with two RBI to lead "the Who."
Next, Fuego cruised past Wasabi 9-4. Benito Alconcel was four for four with one RBI, and Alex Roman went two for three and knocked in two runs for Fuego. Jeff Simon went two for three with two RBIs for Wasabi.
Blue Collar broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning, taking advantage of three walks and two errors to score four runs, then followed that with an eight run fifth inning beating Kihei Sporting Goods (KSG) 12-2. John Avallone was two for two with three RBIs, and Shelby Jordan was one for two, with two RBIs for Blue Collar. Beau Anspach was two for two and had one RBI to top KSG. Makule games continue Monday nights on the Community Park field.
Two new basketball divisions started up last week. On Wednesday, July 11, our four-team 17-and-under division tipped off with two games.
First up, Elite raced out to a 34-12 lead before No Idea went on a 22-2 run to trail by just two points. The game was even after that, with Elite holding on for a 41-38 win. Cheyne Vega led the way with 16 points, and Jansen Agapay added 12 for Elite, while Kai Rundle scored nine and Chris Kazanecki eight to lead No Idea.
Then in the second game, Westside and Central Elite were in a tight back-and-forth game until Westside broke it open midway through the second half en route to a 51-35 victory. Jake Francis hit three 3-pointers on his way to a game high 16 points for Westside, with Marvin Sidon chipping in 14. Central Elite was led by Melson Lucas's 11 points, and Austin Martin's six.
On Thursday, July 12, our five-team 14-and-under division got started. Elite I raced out to an 18-0 lead over the inexperienced Blue Devils, then cruised to a 66-32 win. Elite I had four players score in double figures led by L.J. Lindsay's 16 points and Clarence Daguio's 12 points. Scot Magno scored nine points for the Blue Devils, followed by Michael Villon's five.
Elite II and Westside hooked up in a fast-paced second game that went back and forth on the scoreboard with Westside pulling out the win in the end 38-33. Kalalani Ka'aikala was top scorer for Westside with 11 points; next was Sky Freeman with nine. Tristan Nichols led Elite II with 11 points; Marvin Bersamin scored 10 before fouling out late in the game.
