Congratulations to the first ever travel team for Hui ‘Aumākua Sports in their 2nd place finish at the Kona Pony Memorial Day Tournament. In the Mustang division, there were fifteen teams from across the state vying for the first place title. On Saturday, Hui won double header games against Oahu’s Bombers B-9 (13-2) and Aiea Wildcats (17-2), advancing to Sunday’s game against undefeated Lil Soljahs Blue. Our offense came out swinging which led to a 17-3 win over Kona that set up the Championship game on Monday against Oahu’s Bombers B-10. Hui put up a good fight but Bombers B-10 proved to be too much, final score of (12-0). We’ll be back next year to get that title!
