It was an exciting weekend of baseball for our Bronco players, coaches, and parents!  The weather was great which led to some great games!  Our Hui Broncos opened up pool play against two of the the top teams on the island.  Hui held the lead in the first game until the last inning when Waiākea Uka plated the winning run on a past ball to take game 1!  Saturday afternoon featured our Broncos against RBI Red which hasn’t lost a game all winter!  They were up for the challenge but the RBI bats just was too much in the end as they pulled away for the victory!  Sunday morning was the start of the championship round!  After all the seeding was done,  our Hui boys played the #2 seed from the blue bracket which was an undefeated H.I.A.!  From the start, Hui came out pumped up and proved to be too much for H.I.A. and ran away with the victory 8-1, eliminating H.I.A. and advancing to the semi-finals!  Waiting in the wings was RBI Red!  You remember that old sports analogy, “You wanna be the best, you got to beat the best”, well boys, go get um, and that they did!  They gave RBI everything they had!  Right out the gate, they scored 2 runs in the first, and stretched the lead to 7-2 by the third!  Our boys were playing with a lot of confidence out there!  Then, slowly RBI showed their will and determination as they capitalized on a few defensive errors by the Hui and took the lead at 8-7!  But that didn’t keep our boys from fighting till the end as the game ended in a time limit after 6 innings 11-7!  It was a loss on the scoreboard, but a moral victory for our boys as they took another step in the right direction!  We are very proud of you boys for a great showing and coaches for teaching these boys how to be great young men on and off the field!
