Hawai`i started off great in the first quarter against fifth ranked Florida Gators. Defensively, they held quarterback Tim Tebow and Florida’s high-powered offense at bay in the Swamp. Offensively, Hawai`i moved the ball consistency and got into field goal range at Florida’s 20-yard line. Unfortunately, Alexander had an open receiver up the middle in the end zone but overthrew him and the ball was intercepted. The first quarter ended at 0-0 and I felt pretty good about the team’s performance at the time. Read more

Congratulations to Waipio! Waipio wins the Little League World Series Championship game against Mexico, 12-3. They represented the United States after beating Lake Charles, LA yesterday in a come-from-behind victory. Waipio did not need a comeback rally in the championship game as their bats lit up 11 hits and scored in every inning. They were only the second team in Little League history to have scored in every inning during the championship game.
Waipio began their scoring right from the get go. Lead off hitter Christian Donahue started off the game with a single. He moved to second base on a wild pitch. Two batters later, Pikai Winchester poked a single to left center, scoring Donahue. Waipio added two more runs in the second inning when Tanner Tokunaga crushed the first pitch he saw and sent it over the center field wall, making it 3-0 Waipio. Mexico kept the game close early on as it was 4-3 going into the fourth inning. Everything went Waipio’s way after that as Waipio scored eight more runs to close out Mexico. Read more
