Star-Bulletin staff

Stacey Higa crushed a two-run homer in the top of the eighth inning as defending state champion Iolani topped Kamehameha, 2-0, in an early season Interscholastic League of Honolulu softball showdown yesterday.

Ianeta Lei continued her masterful pitching for the Raiders, scattering four hits over eight innings to improve to 3-0.

In 20 innings this season, Lei has allowed seven hits and only one unearned run.

Leo Sing Chow went the distance for Kamehameha and took her first loss of the season.

Before the home run, Sing Chow had tossed 17 consecutive scoreless innings.

In other action, University hung on to beat Punahou, 5-2.

Kehaulani Yamaguchi pitched into the sixth inning, and Skyler Tokumine got the final five outs to earn a save for University.

With a runner on second, Tokumine got Natalie Fujimoto out on a deep fly ball to end the game.

Holly Wakazuru and Nicole Ortogero knocked in runs in the third to stake the Junior Rainbows to a 4-0 lead.


Loihi McKeague of Pearl City and Shelly Featheran of Kailua both pitched complete games to improve to 3-0.

Kaimuki and Kailua are tied for first place in the Eastern Division and Pearl City and Mililani are on top in the West.

Mililani downed Leilehua, 9-4, scoring six runs in the second inning with the help of six Mules errors.

Farrington earned its second win of the year, edging Moanalua, 4-3.

Cherylynn Ligot earned her second win with a complete game.

The Menehunes scored a run in the fifth to get within a run, but a runner was thrown out at third base to help the Governors escape.

For the rest of the ILH and OIA scores, see the Scoreboard on Page E-4.

Peck boots four goals

For the second night in a row, Oahu Interscholastic Association soccer produced a four-goal scorer -- with identical final scores in the winning teams' opening games.

Lindsey Peck tallied four goals in Kalaheo's 11-0 rout of McKinley yesterday in OIA East action -- duplicating Mele French's feat in Mililani's 11-0 drubbing of Nanakuli on Tuesday.

Kahuku beat Kailua, 4-1, to jump into first place in the East. Natasha Kai paced the Red Raiders with a pair of goals.

OIA boys

In boys' action, Kaimuki and Kaiser both earned their first wins of the season and Kailua played to a 2-2 tie with Kahuku.

Kaimuki's Jared Shirai scored three goals in a 4-0 victory over Farrington. Kaiser beat Roosevelt, 2-0, on goals by Landon Beers and Bobby Self.

The Red Raiders got goals from Kyle Juliano and Bryson Au -- who helped the football team win a state championship earlier in the month.

Roland Takashita and Cheyne Nakata scored for the Surfriders.
