Kapolei turns back Pearl City 1-0 in OIA Red Soccer Championship Semifinals

Jan 25, 2013 | PC Sports


The Kapolei Hurricanes and Pearl City Chargers fought it out last night on a muddy and rain soaked Kaiser High School Field during the OIA Red Boys Soccer Championship Tournament Semifinals won by the Hurricanes 1-0.

Kapolei's Vineal Singh's winning goal in the 7th minute lifted the Hurricanes into tonight's OIA Red Championship Title game against Mililani who defeated Campbell 5-1 in last night's earlier semifinal match-up at Kaiser High School.

It could have been a wider margin of victory last night for Kapolei if wasn't for the stellar play of Pearl City goalie Jared Louis who had a busy night knocking down and deflectiing numerous shots on goal by the Hurricanes.

In tonight's title match up it will be an all OIA Red Western Division representation between Mililani (11-0-1) and Kapolei (11-0-1).  Both teams finished the regular season undefeated at 9-0-1 with the only blemish on their records coming between the two ball clubs on December 14, 2012 when they played to a 0-0.

The OIA Red Division Championship is scheduled for 7:00pm at Kaiser High School.

Kalaheo (9-1-1) and Farrington (5-6-1) will play for the OIA White Division Championship at 5:30pm.

Both championship title games will be broadcasted live on Oceanic's OC-16.

@ Kailua High School

Pearl City (9-4-0) will play Campbell (8-4-1) today at 5:30pm for third and fourth place.

Kalani (10-1-1) and Kaiser (7-4-2)  will match-up for fifth and sixth place at 7:00pm.

Go Chargers!
