Kamehameha holds on

Senior Laakea Dedrick and freshman Shaye Story led the way for the Warriors with each netting a hat trick. Mahie Lee followed with a pair of goals, including the go-ahead score.

After getting on the scoreboard first on Lee's goal from beyond five meters, Kahuku scored twice within 67 seconds with Hannah Smith sneaking a shot away from three defenders for the goal and Grace Rittenhouse skipping a desperation shot with the 35-second shot clock winding down.

Story netted three of Kamehameha's four goals in the second quarter to take a one-point lead into halftime.

Twenty two seconds into the third quarter, Dedrick lined up for a five-meter shot and Kahuku goalkeepr Kimbrell Kunz got a paw on it, but it wasn't enough as it was deflected in for the score.

Early in the final quarter, Sophie Wilson scored the equalizer from just inside the five-meter line on a crossbody skip shot to the left side.

But 2:12 later, Lee got the go-ahead shot to fall to make it 7-6.

After several turnovers back and forth and the game winding down, Kamehameha's defense held tough as they swarmed in to force a turnover on Ava Countryman after receiving a pass inside the five-meter line.

On the other side, Dedrick was fouled just outside the five-meter line and immediately took a shot that ricocheted in off the crossbar.

Kahuku's Delilah Tia took a quick shot from about seven meters out but barred it, giving the Warriors final possession to run the clock out for the win.
