It came down to wire in a battle between Radford and Aiea, with the Rams prevailing, 10-8, in a see-saw affair.

Audrey Hoffman, capped off a four run inning for the Rams in the bottom of the sixth with a two-run home run, the last of three straight base hits for the home team in the inning.

The Na Alii led 2-1 after the first inning and extended to a 4-2 advantage after their turn to bat in the fourth, as Nylove Peneueta came home to score on a wild pitch from third, and Kiersten Chong added another run on single to right that scored Jaedalyn Padasao two pitches later.

Radford tied the game in the bottom of the fourth on a fielding error that allowed both Aubryanna Benjamin and Kyralee Cordeiro to score on the same play, tying the game at 4-all.

Hoffman doubled on the next at-bat to bring home Niueni Elisara and Emily Anderson to push the Rams back ahead for good. The Rams' third baseman was 2 for 3 on the afternoon with a run scored and four RBI.

Aiea was able to rally for three runs in the top of the seventh, as a Chong single was followed up by a hit batter and then a walk to load the bases. Alina Faufata was intentionally walked to make it 10-6, and Sophia Kaneshiro singled a batter later to score Madison Misaki to make it 10-7.

Taja Souza brought Na Alii to within a pair of runs, scoring from third on an error, but Elisara settled down and was able to close out the game and the win with three straight pop outs.

Elisara pitched four innings in relief to earn the victory, allowing six runs on three hits. She also scored twice and drove in two runs.
