LIHU‘E — The Koloa Cane Cutters, playing in the 70s Division of the Kaua‘i Senior Softball league, pulled off a one-run win over Tsunami during a split series at Isenberg Park on Friday.
J.C. Crouch, playing for the Cane Cutters, brought the team back in the bottom of the seventh inning with a bases-loaded, walk-off whack for the 9-8 edge. The second contest featuring the Ahukini Wharf Rats and Ele Makule was postponed.
“The 60s Division ran pretty true-to-form when the Top Five teams carrying the day,” Crouch said. “There were some tremendous offensive and defensive performances at every game, and except for a brief show in the first inning of the Keonimana Gents and Makos game, it was a beautiful day.”
Games continue Friday with the 70s division at Isenberg Park, the first pitch going at 9 a.m.
Saturday games in the 60s division play at the Isenberg Park, and the Kaumakani field, known to the Seniors as the Wally Sonoda field. First pitch at both sites go at 9 a.m.
