Coed Softball League
Our Coed League is just about half way through the season, with games continuing Sunday evenings at the South Maui Community Park. On Nov. 4, the 808 Grinders held on for an exciting 7-6 win over Cove Park 'Ohana, followed by two games called after five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule. Nuts & Honeys overcame still winless Red Line 17-7, and So Wut beat out the Beach Bums 16-6. The night's last game saw Boom get by Platinum 13-9.
Men's Softball League
On to the men's league as it enters its final week of the season. Wednesday, Nov. 7, opened with the Red Eye Souljahs completing an undefeated schedule (10-0) with an easy 15-4 win over Caged. Red Eye will enter the six-team post-season playoff as the number one seed. Next up, Kihei Sporting Goods used a seven-run first inning to cruise past Cove Park Braddas 12-2. Then in a game rescheduled from an earlier date, the Wild Ones came from behind to beat that same Cove Park team 15-11.
Three games on Thursday, Nov. 8, ended the week. First up, the Doggie Dawgs outslugged Ten10Ten10Ten 20-10, then K5 Live erupted for 18 runs in the second inning and went on to crush Da Jagerbombers 28-1. Lastly, Goodfellow Brothers built an 11-4 lead over Chicos but had to hold on for the 11-10 win.
