The Pearl City Chargers kept their regular season win streak alive at 6-0 after defeating Waialua last night 38-26 in OIA Red Western Division Varsity Boys Basketball played at Pearl City High School.

Waialua entered the game at 1-3 but didn't play like a team below .500 as the Bulldogs took the first quarter 10-7 much to the surprise of the red hot Chargers.

In the second quarter, Waialua held a 16-14 until Tyson Hickcox tied the game at 16-16. Hickcox was fouled on the play and went to line shooting one which he converted to give the Chargers the lead at 17-16 with 1:43 on the clock. Hickcox came back and hit on a pair of free throws to put the Chargers up 19-16. Sonny Glisson drained a 3-pointer as time expired to give the Chargers a 22-16 halftime lead. Glisson scored three 3-pointers in the game.

The Chargers outscored the Bulldogs 12-2 in the third quarter to take a 34-18 lead into the fourth and final period. Pearl City moved the ball around with skill in the fourth quarter, burning up a good portion of the clock. Waialua actually outscored Pearl City  8-4 in the final quarter but it wasn't enough as the Chargers margin of victory over the Bulldogs was in double digits at 12 points.

Pearl City's Tyson Hickcox pumped in a game high 15 points for the Chargers. Sonny Glisson scored 11 points which included three 3-pointers.

Waialua's Keevin Cuadro led the Bulldogs with 7 points with one 3-pointer.
