MAKAWAO – The Kamehameha Maui and Seabury Hall girls soccer teams persevered through chilly weather on Saturday, Dec. 30, but the Warriors defeated the Spartans, 4-1, at Seabury Hall.

“We did a little better than we did last week. We have a lot more to work on tactically, and even playing as a whole, but overall, we’re improving and that’s all that matters,” said senior Makamae Aquino.

The game started off slowly, and both teams were trying to create movement on the field. Senior Kamalei Roback scored the first point of the game for the Warriors.

Senior Ilihia Keawekane scored the 2nd point and senior Kayla Tuitele scored the 3rd.

The Spartans scored their first and final point in the second half, and that point was made by Seabury’s Kalena Pfaeltzer.

According to Kamehameha coach Brandon Kotter, the team has a lot of soccer experience and a high soccer IQ. Collectively between clubs and school, the team has been playing soccer for a long time, but they are working toward playing as a team.

“Overall, we played okay. I think we still have a long way to go to play to our potential. It’s a little bit of calibration right now between coaches expectation and expectation of the players of themselves but it’s a step forward,” Coach Kotter said.

Watch the Maui Warrior girls play against King Kekaulike on Jan. 4, at War Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m.
