The Molokai High School boys basketball team traveled to Lanai this past weekend and split a pair of games.

The win on Friday and the loss on Saturday left the Farmers with a 6-2 record, second place behind Seabury Hall (6-1) in the Maui Interscholastic League Division II standings.

Hau’oli Faleali’i led the way for Molokai on Friday with 21 points on the way to a 55-51 win over Lanai. David Rapanot helped the effort by hitting five three-pointers to finish with 19 points. The win put the Farmers into a first place tie with Seabury.

But Molokai’s time in first place would be short-lived. The noontime game on Saturday brought Molokai back to second placed after losing 57-50 to the Pine Lads.

The Farmers rallied in the fourth quarter, outscoring Lanai 25-11. But a strong third quarter performance from Lanai was too much. Jestonie Molina hit five 3-pointers on the way to 18 points for the Pine Lads, who now have a 2-6 MIL record.

For Molokai, Paka Adolpho scored 21 points while Faleali’i scored 19 points, who trailed 48-25 after three periods.
