The Pearl City Chargers (4-6) and the Kapolei Hurricanes (4-6) split a double header in OIA Red West Division Varsity Softball on Saturday at Kapolei. Hurricanes starting  pitcher, Tanisha Aniya tossed a two-hitter in game one to earn a 2-1 victory over the Chargers. Pearl City's Sella Rodriguez took the loss in game one but came back in game two, allowing five hits to lead the Chargers to a 2-1 victory and a split in the double header.

Game One:  Kapolei 2   Pearl City 1       Game Two:  Pearl City 2   Kapolei 1

"Sella Rodriguez threw two brilliant games," said Chargers head coach, Keoke Behic. "The difference was Kapolei had a few clutch hits that was the difference."

Leading hitters for Kapolei in game one came from Dorian Acierto and Ashalyn Umiamaka who both went 2-3 in the win. Starting pitcher, Tanisha Aniya contributed with a double. Pearl City's Kalei Adams hit a double for the Chargers.

In game two, Pearl City's Sierra Tadiarca, double; Kapolei's Dorian Acierto, triple.

The Chargers entered Saturday's double header coming off a two week break in league play. "Our Offense cooled off from the two break we had." said Behic.  "We finish off the season with Mililani and realistically look at a fifth place West finish which will put us up against the fourth place finisher in the East and possible second round game verses Campbell."

Pearl City will play Mililani at home on Tuesday, April 20 (3:30pm) and again on Friday, April 23 (3:30pm) at Mililani.

"The way we play this week will determine how well we do in the playoffs based on player confidence," said Behic.

Senior day for the Lady Chargers will be this Tuesday at PCHS. The dedicated seniors will be honored with their last regular season home game.
