HPU men’s soccer faced Chaminade on Oct. 30 and inched closer to the PacWest title. The Sea Warriors moved into first place of the conference, after a 6-1 win over the Silverswords. The Sea Warriors improved to 9-5-1 overall, and 7-2 in the PacWest, in front of Notre Dame de Namur (6-1-1) and Grand Canyon (5-1-2).

However, in the last week of conference play, NDNU swept three Hawai‘i schools to clinch the PacWest title.

HPU proved strong and consistent throughout the game against Chaminade, with three goals in each of the halves. HPU freshman Mark Rogers remained a strong player with his fourth goal of the season. Two more goals by HPU freshman Chance Bukoski and junior Cory Harding, granted HPU a 3-0 lead within three minutes.

In the second half, HPU remained strong and sophomore Linus Ekden scored increasing the lead by four. Less than seven minutes later, Max Anton scored when the ball went off Chaminade goalie Kris Lounsbury and into the goal.

Chad Thompson scored for CUH in the 64th minute with an assist from teammate Tim Stipo. Reclaiming the five-goal lead, HPU sophomore Toni Bakken scored with an assist from Bukoski.
The game between the Lady Sea Warriors and Chaminade played practically identical to the men’s game. HPU defeated Chaminade 6-1, scoring three goals in each half. Goals by HPU sophomore Tami Kalaiwaa, freshman Chloe Maeshiro, and freshman Katrina Torres gave HPU a 3-0 halftime lead.

Silversword Jamie Lindstrom scored in the second half, slimming the lead to 3-1. Nicole Bleidistel expanded HPU’s lead back to three goals after scoring another goal. HPU junior Jamie Hirai scored in the 68th minute to extend the lead 5-1, and a penalty kick by Kalaiwaa in the 83rd minute sealed the win for the Lady Sea Warriors.

HPU improved to 4-12 overall and 2-7 in the PacWest, while the Lady Silverswords fell to 1-12 overall and 0-9 in the conference.
