Kaiser survived a three-run rally by Kalani that tied the score heading into the last of the seventh, scoring a walk-off win via a walk to win, 8-7, improving to 4-1 in the OIA Eastern division standings.

Cougars' leadoff Noah Sham led the way with a 2 for 3 day at the plate, with a home run and a double. He also scored three times and drove in three more. Caleb Hamasaki added a home run and Davin Oshiro was 3 for 4 with an RBI triple for Kaiser, who's first five accounted for all 10 of the teams' hits in the game.

Kalani's top of the seventh heroics started via a single by Rex Nakamura, and was followed by Wyatt Ishii being hit by a pitch and a Micah Friel walk to load the bases. Warner Ishii reached on a error a batter later, allowing Nakamura to score from third. Courtesy runner  Bradley Asato was caught stealing at home for the first out of the inning, but Cameron Kobayashi was hit by a pitch to reload the bases.

Chansen Uyetake brought home run number two in the inning via sacrifice fly, and Dyson Murakami singled home Warner Ishii a batter later to tie the game at 7-all.

Then in the bottom of the seventh, Bryson Toner drew a leadoff walk, then Sham also walked, putting the winning run on second. Oshiro flew out a batter later, before Brennan Higa was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Zach Ho drew four straight balls to induce the game ending walk, scoring courtesy runner Ian Leong from third to end it.

Toner came on in relief of Hamasaki in the third inning and went the rest of the way, allowing four runs (none earned) on three hits, striking out three and walking three to earn the win.

Wyatt Ishii had the lone extra base hit for Kalani, an RBI triple in the first.
