Playing in heavy rain Oct. 12 at Atherton Field at the Hawai‘i Loa campus, HPU’s Gabe Sugar drew first blood, scoring in the 30th minute of the match, but BYU-H’s Michael Akinaka answered by scoring off a free kick in the 36th minute. Although HPU out shot the Seasiders 25 to 17, the BYU-H goalkeepers made 11 saves compared to HPU’s 5. In the 56th minute of the game, BYUH’s Kamuela Kamoe took advantage of a corner kick by teammate Joshua Barney to score the game-winning goal, ending HPU’s two-game winning streak with a score of 1-0.

Two days later, the Sea Warriors sought to avenge their loss at the Seasiders’ home field in La‘ie. Both teams were relatively even in the first half, but the Seasiders’ offense picked up in the second, firing18 shots on goal compared to the Sea Warriors’ 8.

HPU’s Christian Nilsson, determined to defend his net, saved eight shots in the game. The teams went into double overtime but neither was able to score, giving the Sea Warriors their second tie of the season.

Watch next issue for a roundup of the Sea Warriors’ final conference games. And don’t forget your team at the season ender, 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, against the Chaminade Silverswords at Chaminade University.
