The Kamehameha Schools Maui girls soccer team improved to 10-0-0 on Tuesday, Jan. 14, scoring both of its goals in the first five minutes of the match en route to a 2-0 victory in a rain-shorten match at Kana’iaupuni Stadium in Pukalani.

Officials called a halt to the girls Maui Interscholastic League soccer match after 20 minutes of play due to a rain storm that turned the Upcountry turf playing surface into an ankle-deep pool in a matter of minutes. Both teams played in the monsoon conditions for the nearly 10 minutes before officials ruled.

The unbeaten Lady Warriors got their first goal two-minutes into the match when Sarah Noelani Reyes used her right foot to deflect a perfect pass from Julia Saffery into the back of the net. About a minute later, Kamehameha Maui capped its scoring on a point-blank goal by senior forward Marley Duncan. Kehaulani Macadangdang was credited with the assist.

The Trojans fell to 0-7-0.

The Sabers got all the offense they needed from Tiana Lucas in the fourth minute off a corner kick from her sister, Tiara Lucas. Maui High’s Jordan MIL girls Soccer 2014 copyJarvis would later add an unassisted goal in the 57th minute to cap the scoring.

A steady drizzle turned into a cold shower before halftime. And while the ugly weather conditions subsided in the second half, the wet field swallowed up the ball and made passing a chore for players the rest of the way.

With the win Maui High improved to 7-2-0 and second place in the MIL Division I girls standings with 21 points.
