face Iolani

Star-Bulletin staff

Pac-Five, the sixth seed in the double-elimination Interscholastic League of Honolulu baseball tournament, knocked off Punahou, 5-2, last night at Aloha Stadium.

The Wolfpack advance to face Iolani, which lost to Mid-Pacific last night in an elimination game at Ala Wai Field. The loss ends Punahou's season at 10-8.

Jeff Soranaka pitched a complete-game two-hitter and Aaron Kano and Jon Kato drove in two runs each to lead the Wolfpack.

Pac-Five finished the regular season with a record of 4-10 and lost to St. Louis in the first round of the tournament. But the Wolfpack rebounded to beat Kamehameha on Tuesday and is now among the final three teams still battling for the tournament championship.
