The Mililani boys soccer team puts its undefeated record on the line against Pearl City, which is also unbeaten, Friday at Mililani at 7:15 p.m.

The Chargers (3-0-0) are led by Steven King, who is second in the O'ahu Interscholastic Association Western Division with seven goals.

Mililani (3-0-1) lost eight seniors after winning its fourth consecutive state title last year. Pearl City was the last team to defeat Mililani during the regular season and postseason when it won the OIA title, 1-0, on Feb. 3, 2001.

Pearl City has scored 16 goals this season and allowed one. Mililani has scored 12 goals and also allowed one.

The girls match-up at 5:30 p.m., between host Mililani (5-0-0) and Pearl City (4-0-0) is equally as interesting.

Neither team has allowed a goal this season, but that will likely change with the league's top scorers facing off.

Mililani senior forward Sarah Yoro, who verbally committed to play at the University of Oregon, leads the Western Division with 11 goals. Pearl City senior forwards Blessing Drumeller and Chelsea Arakawa have scored eight points apiece.

Pearl City's teams also face tough matches tonight against 'Aiea (boys 2-1-0; girls 4-0-0). Mililani plays Waipahu (boys 0-4-0; girls (0-5-0).
