Roosevelt winsStar-Bulletin staff
OIA East opener
Roosevelt's Chris Mols had a shaky first inning, walking one batter and hitting another.
But by the end of yesterday afternoon, he had pitched the bulk of a five-inning no-hitter against Farrington.
Mols pitched three innings, and Allen Imamura and Chad Kapanui threw an inning of relief each as the Rough Riders allowed no hits in beating the Governors, 11-1, in the Oahu Interscholastic Association East opener for both teams.
Mols struck out six, walked two and hit one batter.
The game at Stevenson Intermediate School was shortened due to the league's mercy rule.
"He had a little sophomore jitters to start out," Roosevelt coach Kerry Higa said. "But he did a good job and looks like he could be a solid No. 3 guy for us."
Kapanui allowed an unearned run in his inning, but he also led the Rough Riders offense with two doubles.
