West Hawaii will be well represented in Friday’s BIIF Division II softball semifinals, after wins from Konawaena and Honoka’a allow them to join Kohala in the final four of the tournament, along with East Hawaii top seed Kamehameha-Hawaii.

After falling behind by a run after the first inning, the visiting Wildcats from Konawaena popped ahead with a three-run sixth inning, and held on to win 3-2 over Pahoa. The Wildcats, now 5-9 on the season, will travel to Kohala. The Cowboys have won two of the three meetings between the two teams, winning the last two games after Konawaena beat Kohala at home on March 22.

Honoka’a rolled through Ka’u by the score of 15-1, advancing them to the semi-finals where they will meet up with Kamehameha-Hawaii. Both teams did not play against each other during the season because they played in different regions.

Also, the Division I softball championship game will be played this afternoon, when Kea’au hosts Hilo High. The Vikings edged Kea’au at home, 9-8, the first time the played at Hilo’s home field on March 16. The Cougars returned the favor, beating Hilo 4-3 on March 30 at home. The rubber match of the season series went to Kea’au, winning 6-0 at Hilo on April 13.
