Molokai Ballers Not Close Enough
The Farmers suffered two tough losses this past weekend at Seabury Hall, but not without putting up a fight. The Farmers were without a key player, Kamakana Duvauchelle-Andrade, who suffered a sprained ankle earlier in the week.
Before Friday’s game, both the teams were undefeated – but with the help of the Spartans’ Dylan King, Seabury stayed that way.
“Dylan King is an awesome player,very talented,” said assistant coach Rick Schonely”[But]our boys played well. They learned a lot.”
The Farmers went down on Friday night 58-38.
“We know that tomorrow and the tournament is another chance,” Delos Reyes said. “So I sat my starters and let my younger guys get some experience there in the second half,” said head coach Lester Delos Reyes, according to the Maui News.
The Farmers held an 8-7 lead in the first half of Saturday’s gamebut not for long. Molokai came close again in the third quarter – within four points of Seabury’s score, according to the Maui News.
The final score on Saturday was 53-35.
The Farmers finish the regular season 6-2 and second in the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL). They will either play St. Anthony or Lanai on Feb. 3 in the MIL Division II Championship tournament at Baldwin High School. Should they win on Thursday, they will go onto the playoff game on Feb. 5 for a state tournament berth.
“We’ll lace up again this week and see what happens,” Schonely said. “We are young and have some good players.”
