OIA Girls Water Polo
Cougars eke past Rough Riders to remain lone OIA unbeaten


  



Kaiser took down Roosevelt in a battle of unbeaten teams, 6-5, to remain the lone unbeaten in OIA play.

Kimie Ginoza scored twice in the third period, the last coming with just 49 seconds to play, to push the Cougars' lead to 6-4 heading into the final quarter.

Roosevelt got to within a point when Jochel Oba scored with 3:01 left in regulation, but could not find the equalizer down the stretch.

Jayzlyn Tomisa led the Rough Riders with a pair of goals, one in the second and one in the third.

In its second match of the afternoon, the Cougars took down Kalani, 15-2, to improve to 8-0.

The Cougars can complete an undefeated regular season with a win against Moanalua on April 17 and a season-ending showdown with Kahuku on April 20.

The Red Raiders won both its matches today handily, one an 18-2 result over Kapolei and the other a 20-1 win over the West Combined team.

Tuua Cravens scored five goals, and three others added three goals each, Maya Maki, Kimorah Wong and Tacoma Campbell.

The wins were a rebound after Kahuku's 12-8 loss to Roosevelt back on March 30, which marked the first league setback for the Red Raiders since April 20, 2022.

Kaiser, Kahuku, Roosevelt and Kapolei, along with idle Millani, are all but assured of a berth in the upcoming league playoffs.
