Seven-time state champion Punahou opened the Interscholastic League of Honolulu baseball season with a 4-2 win over rival ‘Iolani yesterday at Ala Wai Community Park.
Kainoa Harrison’s two-run single to right field highlighted Punahou’s three-run second inning.
The Raiders got on the board in the top half of the sixth as Jensen Park’s single brought home Dylan Goto. Park later scored on a Tanner Nishioka single. Punahou added an insurance run as Rick Nomura scored on a wild pitch.
