WAIPAHU — The Mililani softball team loves free bases.

The Trojans celebrated senior day with a 14-4 mercy-rule win over Waianae Saturday afternoon in an OIA Division I-West contest at the Pasty T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park.

Third-ranked Mililani (6-1) needed just five hits in the win as it benefited from 16 walks and a HBP by Waianae starter Savanna Casuga.

The Seariders (2-5) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after a leadoff double by Teizsha Kaopuiki and a walk by Karma Pestana before Charlee-Rose Stevens hit a three-run homer to clear the bases.

But it was all Mililani from there as the victors scored 14 straight runs in the first four innings.

In the circle for the Trojans was the ‘Yeah U Player of the Game,’ Makayla Pagampao, who earned her sixth win of the year while tossing a season-high five strikeouts as she adjusted to some early command issues. At one point, she retired 10 consecutive batters faced to keep Waianae at bay.

Two of Mililani’s base hits was for the fences with Jerrell Mailo hitting a two-run bomb in the third and Kolbi Kochi hitting a grand slam in the fourth after starting the day 0-for-3 at the plate. Mailo also scored the most runs for the Trojans with three. Leadoff hitter Taryn Hirano was also solid with four walks drawn, two runs and two RBIs.

Kaopuiki went 2-for-3 at the plate with two doubles and two runs scored to lead the Seariders in the loss.

PEARL CITY — This was a tale of two halves.

Visiting Radford earned its fifth straight win with a commanding 59-40 win over Pearl City Wednesday night in OIA West play.

The Rams (12-2 overall, 6-1 league) trailed by four points at the break, but outscored the Chargers, 36 to 13, in the second half to win the game.

Senior guard Jirah Villanueva led all scorers with 23 points and was named the ‘Yeah U Player of the Game’ for her efforts.

Julissa Bollinger followed with 13 points and Kourtney Smith was a presence in the paint with 10 points to round out the top scorers for Radford.

The Rams had the early lead and took a 13-9 advantage after the opening quarter, but energy and hustle by the Chargers’ bench saw them lead by as many as eight points in the second quarter as the home team took a 27-23 lead at the break.

The second half was the opposite story.

While Pearl City was solid defensively in the second quarter, Radford was the one being stingy after halftime as they held the Chargers without a field goal in the third quarter. The Rams also scored 16 points in the frame while holding Pearl City to just two points.

Reserve guard Lyla Matthews was key with her defense against Pearl City guard Aiesha DeWeever while adding six points with a handful of steals.

The Chargers (7-4, 4-3), who dropped their third straight game, was led by Shilee Scanlan’s 13 points in the loss.
