Kamehameha will have to resume its quest for an ILH tournament championship on Saturday morning after its game against Saint Louis at Central Oahu Regional Park was rained out midway through Friday’s game.
Kamehameha was winning 4-0 halfway through the third inning when the game was postponed. The visitors used a three-run second inning to create its early lead, led by a double from Beau Sylvester and triple from Jayvn Pimental.
Sylvester scored his second run of the game off an infield error to give the Warriors a 4-0 lead heading into the bottom of the third frame.
Pimental used 34 pitches to get through two shutout innings on the mound. The lefty was warming up to face Saint Louis’ Cole Kashimoto and the top of the Crusaders lineup before the game was put to a halt due to the pouring rain.
Kamehameha coach Daryl Kitagawa confirmed the Warriors (12-6) and Crusaders (15-4) will resume from the bottom of the third inning on 9 a.m. Saturday at Ala Wai Park.
Saturday’s timeslot was initially scheduled for another possible game in the double-elimination tournament if Saint Louis beat Kamehameha on Friday. A Kamehameha win would set up a game with regular-season champion Punahou for the overall ILH championships and a seeded berth at states.
Saint Louis, Kamehameha and Punahou have already clinched the ILH’s three spots for the state tournament.
The Warriors, who finished 9-6 in the regular season in fifth place, have allowed just one run in 23 innings in the ILH tournament.
