Ka Makani (1-9) took advantage of 12 Ka‘u walks in the first inning to take an early 8-0 lead. Senior Alexa Meyer and junior Tehani Grasso each chipped in with two-run doubles in a 12-run second inning.
Tiani Naboa and Siena Okimoto both singled for Ka‘u (0-10). Ka‘u scored an unearned run in the top of the third inning to break up Lim-Samura’s shutout bid.
