Stephens Media

Kepa Police and Hawaii Prep are enjoying life at the top.

Police scored five goals Thursday in Waimea, leading Ka Makani to a 9-0 win over Kohala in a Big Island Interscholastic Federation Division II boys soccer match.

With its victory, HPA moved to the top of the BIIF Division II standings at 6-0, inching ahead of Honokaa and Christian Liberty, who both have 5-0 marks. Ka Makani has outscored its opponents by a combined score of 36-4.

Meanwhile, Police’s five goals give him 13 for the season.

Police received plenty of help against the Cowboys. Max Gent scored his first two goals of the season, Keisuke Ohtaka tacked on his fourth goal, and Juan Miche-Rosales scored his second.

Ohtaka has found the back of the net in each of HPA’s past three matches.

In goal, Trenton Wise blanked Kohala (0-6).

Makua Lani 4, Parker 3: Pono Ng produced a natural hat track in Waimea, scoring three first-half goals that gave the Makua Lani a 3-1 lead at intermission.

Senior Elijah Lingenfelder, who assisted on one of Ng’s goals, tacked on his ninth goal of the season in the second half for the Lions (4-3).

Senior Paul Gregg scored twice for the Bulls (1-5), and senior Evan Kasberg also found the back of the net.
