showing marked improvement in
speed and team work and every
game is hotly contested.
The High School played the Ko

gressiveness and forced the play
into High School's territory. High
School was penalized several times
and the goal threatened by free
kicks. Near the end of the first
half, a well placed kick from the
side line scored the first goal for

the second half, the High School

three times. Koloa failed to score.

By an unavoidable delay the
game was late in starting, and it

the first half Eleele was penalized
and Lihue scored on a fortunate
kick from outside the penalty area.
In the second half Lihue was
