Soccer championships settled from youth leagues to masters men
From the Golden Eagles in the under 13-year-old girls division of the Hawai'i Youth Soccer Association to the Silver Strikers in the 45-years and older Miso Masters Division of the Men's Island Soccer Organization, championships were determined in the past week.
The HPU Warriors defeated the Hellions, 4-1, to win the MISO spring championship for the third time in four years Sunday at Waipi'o Peninsula Soccer Park. Lanikai Tuesday edged short-handed Army, 1-0, for third place.
The Hellions played the last 73 minutes a player short as recent 'Aiea High graduate Benjamin Villaflor was red-carded early for throwing the ball into an opponent. HPU already was ahead 1-0 on a volley by Viken Martanian that MISO president Sergio Bolioli called "perhaps the goal of the season."
Army was missing five on-duty starters, including Orlando Suazo, the league's leading scorer and Most Valuable Player. Tione Hackney scored Lanikai's goal in the 18th minute.
Sixty-six teams played 100 games in boys and girls divisions ranging from under 13 to under 19 in the HYSA State Cup at Waipi'o Peninsula Soccer Park May 26-28.
There were 58 teams from O'ahu, eight from Maui and one from Kaua'i.
Some of the HYSA teams will play in tournaments on the Mainland this summer, said HYSA president Scott Keopuhiwa.
