Waipio shut-out Pearl City 10-0 (F/5th) to capture the 2018 Hawaii Little League District 7 Minors Championship Crown on Monday at the Pearl City Recreation Center.

Waipio ace Jayven Taira was masterful on the mound pitching a three-hit shut-out in five complete innings to earn the championship win. It was his second victory against Pearl City in the tournament. Taira beat Pearl City 19-5 in the championship tournament opening round on Friday, June 22.

Kevin Ujimori got the start for Pearl City pitching 2/3 of the first inning. Trison Yee and Ian Wicklund pitched in relief of Ujimori.

Waipio pounded out 13 hits in the ball game. Waipio jumped on Pearl City in the top of the first inning scoring five runs on five hits to take an early 5-0 lead.

Waipio forced the 10-run rule in the top of the tenth inning after scoring their ninth run on an infield grounder by Zanden Agbulos that scored Jacob Ellazar, followed by a RBI double by Ryder Asuncion that scored Tryten Vicari from third base with the tenth and final run. Pearl City went down in the bottom of the fifth to end the game.
