Roosevelt's Kekai McGee lets fly with a shot to score.

The Roosevelt High School lady Rough Riders provided the first upset of this year’s tournament, defeating Mililani lady Trojans 7-2 for the third place victory. The game started out slowly with both teams missing opportunities to score, a dismal 1-1 at halftime, with neither team looking to want nor need to win. Even midway through the third quarter, the score remained at 2-2.

Then the fun for Roosevelt started, with Kekai McGee (3 goals), finally coming “unglued” and finding the back of the net with an offspeed shot and a cross-goal lob to take the 4-2 lead.

Roosevelt's Rachel Kamai scores at OIA Champs.

In the fourth, Roosevelt did not let up, scoring three more. The Game’s Co-MVP, Rachel Kamai (2 goals), proved to be the difference as she picked up her level of play from earlier in the week and led to great improvement for her team.

 

Next up for both teams: HHSAA State Championships!
