Enemies one minute. Brothers the next.
A dramatic, back-and-forth Division I state boys soccer final between Baldwin and Hawaii Prep on Saturday night was in overtime, tied 0-0 and about to reach its conclusion at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium.
Little did anyone know that a lightning delay would eventually lead to the cancellation of the rest of the contest and instead of having the first state D-I champion from the Neighbor Islands, we have two.
Soon after, the Bears and Ka Makani met for their handshake (and lots of brotherly hugs) line — not on the field, but near the concession stand.
