Farmers Win One, Lose One
Boys’ volleyball finishes regular season
The Molokai High boys’ volleyball headed to Hana this past weekend for their last regular season games, where they won Friday’s sets but lost on Saturday. Friday night’s game ended with a sweeping score of 25-23, 29-27, 28-26.
“Friday night’s game was really close, but nobody lost control. They didn’t panic like they did in earlier matches,” said coach Bill Dudoit.
Paka Adolpho had 11 kills, two blocks and two aces on the evening, and Nainoa Langer had three kills, one block, two aces, and 45 assists.
“Friday night, we just came out firing,” Langer said. “And Saturday they just came back very hard. We were making most of the mistakes on our own.”
He believes the team has made strides since the start of the season.
“If we played the same guys we played at the beginning, we’d do much better, I think,” Langer said.
On Saturday, Hana came back with a vengeance and beat Molokai in three sets, 17-25, 25-12, 13-25, 25-18, 15-6. The Farmers will play Hana again on Wednesday at the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) Championships.
Some players believe that Saturday’s game was a result of thinking Hana (4-7) would not come out strong.
“We thought we were going to get an easy win on Saturday,” said Roycee Calairo.
The Famers tied for second along with Hana for second seed at the MIL tournament. If they win on Wednesday, they will play the winner of the Seabury Hall and Lanai game on Thursday.
