The Interscholastic League of Honolulu baseball regular season was supposed to end Saturday, but two teams will complete the seventh inning of a protested game on Tuesday.

Before that March 16 contest was put under protest by Maryknoll coach Eric Kadooka, Punahou scored a 6-0 victory. But, due to a Buffanblu player hurdling the Maryknoll catcher illegally to score a run in a four-run seventh inning, Kadooka protested to the league and it was upheld.

On Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. at Ala Wai Community Park, the game will revert to the top of the seventh with Punahou (9-5) at bat and leading 2-0 with two runners on base.


The two teams will meet again in one of two ILH postseason tournament openers Friday. The event will continue next week until tournament winner and a second state berth is determined. Kamehameha locked up the league’s first state spot by winning the regular season with a 12-3 record.


Eventually, an overall league champion will be determined as well.
