The Kauai Soccer League starts
Its season next Sunday with Mc
Bryde meeting Lihue at the latter'n
grounds, and Koloa and Makawell
at Eleele. It looks like McBryde
should have little trouble with Li
hue, as the boys have shown little
interest and have done little or no
practicing. All the other teams hav
been busy and if the boys from the
county seat do not show a change of
attitude they are liable to find
themselves reposing In the cellar.
Lihue has some very good material
but It takes practice to play a good
game of soccer.
The Chinese' kept their lead in
the Indoor baseball league by de

Two surprises were sprung last
Monday night in the Lihue baseball
league when the Japanese defeated
the Chinese by the close score of
0-2. This was the best game that
has been played in the league to date.
The score was 3-2 up to the eighth
inning, and the Japanese made four
runs in the last half of the game
and cinched it.
The biggest surprise was when
the haloes defeated the Portuguese.
The haoles had an easy time of it in
the first eight innings and were ten
runs ahead at the beginning of the
ninth. The Portuguese scored eight
runs to tie the score. The final
the punch to put over the other two
runs to ties the score. The final
score was 16-14.
