Honolulu used strength and tendency to play New York’s Massapequa 12-0 in five rounds at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, on Friday.

Kekoa Payanal led from the top of the first half with Homer and added another in the fourth. Jaron Lancaster, the primary bowler, also participated, as did Isaiah Wong, who hit three runs in the fifth inning.

Payanal, Lancaster, Wong and Kama Angell got two hits for Honolulu, which advanced into Monday’s game against Pearland, Texas, at 1 p.m.

Lancaster made three dominant rounds, writing off seven. He threw 49 throws, allowing him to qualify for Monday’s post. Cohen Sakamoto, who kicked off Wednesday’s 11-1 win at Washington State’s Bonnie Lake, rested and completed the hit by taking the last two games, writing off four.

It was the first no-hitter by a team from Hawaii in the Little League World Series.
