Boys volleyball season opens with a pair of wins over Lanai

The Farmers Royce Calairo, shown here in a match against Kamehameha Maui last year, had a strong showing over the weekend against Lanai.

Molokai’s Royce Calairo was at the top of the stat sheet in both matches. On Friday evening, he finished with five kills and four aces as the Farmers controlled the match from the beginning, winning 25-18, 25-19, 25-17.

Isreal (Paka) Adolpho also had a strong game for Molokai, finishing with six kills. Brahunson Ka’ai led the team with 10 kills while Hauoli Falealii helped set up the other players with 34 assists.

On Saturday, the domination over the smaller Lanai team continued as Molokai won again in straight sets 25-9, 25-9 and 25-15. Calairo had six kills and two aces. Falealii had another strong game with 36 assists and six aces. Other top players from Molokai were Dayson Gomes with five kills, James Corpuz, five kills and three aces and Adolpho with two kills and two aces.

The next matches for the Farmers will be March 16 and 17 at Lahainaluna Gym.
