Led by Kordel Ng and Christmas Togiai, the top-ranked Warriors continued their winning ways in league play, posting a 66-57 win over the Crusaders at McCabe Gymnasium.

Kamehameha jumped out to a 19-10 advantage in the first quarter, led by Ng's 10 in the period, to help the road team post its fourth straight victory in the gauntlet that is the ILH Division I.

Togiai did much of the heavy lifting for the Warriors in the second half, pouring in 9 of his 17 points, but shooting from distance, to the tune of four three pointers after intermission, helped as well.

In all, the Warriors knocked down a total of eight threes in the contest, paced by Preston Ponteras, who knocked down three. Ng and Paliku Kamaka had a pair of triples each and Braden Defries had one as well.

Kamehameha hits the road for another four more contests before finally returning to host a game at Kekuhaupio on January 27.

Despite a game-high 23 points poured in by Isaac Silva, the Crusaders saw their win streak halted at two games. Up next for Saint Louis are two road contests, at Maryknoll on Jan. 18 and against Punahou at Hemmeter on Jan. 20.
