No surprise, the ILH’s top two teams will play for the state water polo title.
Punahou beat Kapolei 13-2 and Kamehameha downed Kahuku 9-4 to set up Saturday’s title showdown at the Duke Kahanamoku Aquatic Center.
The ILH has won every title in the tournament’s history and has had both teams in the final in six of the past seven years. Punahou is going for its eighth straight title.
The Buffanblu beat the Warriors every time they faced each other in the ILH this year.
Kamehameha’s Kolby Kahahawai leads all scorers in the tournament with nine, but Punahou’s Kelly Fricke is right behind her with seven despite playing two matches to Kamehameha’s three.
Kamehameha teammate Payton Bosque is next on the list with six goals, tied with Kapolei’s Leilani Herrera and India Pyzel of Kahuku.
The record for goals in a single tournament is 16 by Kamehameha’s Nanea Fujiyama in 2008. Fujiyama also holds the career record with 36 in three tournaments. Punahou’s Kelly Fricke leads active players with 13.
