Girls soccer season on Oahu is quickly becoming a tale of the haves and have-nots.
Annual contender Moanalua beat Farrington 18-0 on Wednesday, getting hat tricks from Kelci Sumida and Sakari Bell to improve to 2-0 early in the season. Na Menehune won their opener 2-0 over Kailua and play McKinley on Saturday.
It has been the biggest blowout of the season thus far, but it is certainly not the only one. There have been five matches in the OIA decided by 10 goals or more and three such blowouts in the ILH.
It isn’t just the big schools picking one one weak sister, seven different schools have allowed 10 or more goals in a game this year.
Nanakuli has been the victim twice, losing 14-0 to unbeaten Mililani and 10-0 to Kapolei. Radford allowed 11 goals to the Hurricanes and 13 to defending state champion Pearl City, but managed to avoid the shutout with a single goal both times.
In the ILH, Iolani, Punahou and Kamehameha all have a 10-0 win to their credit, each beating a different team for the big score.
The blowouts are bringing big individual performances with them, Kahuku’s Kamaile Aluli put up six goals against McKinley and Alyssa Yoshida paced Kapolei with six against Radford. Kapua Gomera-Stevens of Kamehameha has the biggest day of the ILH season so far, scoring five goals against Damien.
