St. Anthony was the only MIL team to play in Saturday’s final day of the state high school soccer tournaments and the Trojans made the most of the opportunity.

A pair of second-half goals by Chris Maeda and Kyle Orth lifted St. Anthony to a 2-0 win over Hawaii Prep of the Big Island in the third-place match of the Division-II  tournament at the Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex on Oahu.

Maeda and Bryce Mizoguchi were named to the D-II all-tourney team for the fourth-seeded Trojans, who opened with a 1-0 shootout win over defending champion Mid-Pacific before suffering a 2-1 loss in the semifinals to eventual champion Honokaa.

Honokaa took the D-II title by defeating Kapaa of the Big Island 4-1. Mid-Pac edged Konawaena 1-0 for fifth place.

Baldwin won its opener, 1-0 over Aiea, but suffered losses of 2-1 via a shootout to second-seeded Kapolei in the quarterfinals and 2-1 to Hilo in the consolation bracket.

Punahou defended its title, winning a record 18th state crown, by routing Kaiser 5-0 in the D-I final behind a hat trick from Mountain Mitchell.

Second-seeded Kapolei beat top-seeded Kamehameha-Oahu 3-2 for third, Mililani tied Hilo 1-1 for fifth and Radford defeated Waiakea 3-0 in the consolation final.

BASEBALL:  Technically, it was a tournament in name only as the teams involved played a random schedule.

Still, defending state D-I runnerup Baldwin went 3-1 in a baseball it hosted. The Bears suffered their lone loss to Mayknoll, 6-3, on Saturday.

Also entered were Kauai, Molokai, Waipahu and Kekaulike, which also went 3-1 in the event after splitting its games Saturday after going 0-for-4 during a trip to Oahu.

Na Alii defeated Kauai 11-3 and lost 8-7 to Maryknoll, while Waipahu routed Molokai 14-2.

Kekaulike will be hosting a tournament of its own this week.

The MIL season opens in three weeks, with Na Alii seeking to break the hammerlock Baldwin and Maui have enjoyed at the D-I level for years.

SOFTBALL:  Brenna Nakamura hit a grand slam, Kekuu Haake also homered and Hope Morikawa toss a three-hit shutout for the Lahainaluna in a 12-0 MIL win over Kekaulike on Saturday.

On Wednesday, seven-time defending champion Baldwin will try to rebound from an MIL-opening loss to the Lunas when it visits Maui High and the Lunas will play host to Kamehameha-Maui.
