Iolani (Hawaii) advances in Arizona


Iolani (Honolulu, Hawaii) is making good on a rare opportunity for this Hawaii power to gauge itself against mainland competition.

Iolani completed group play Wednesday with its third-straight shutout, a 2-0 victory over Millenium (Goodyear, Ariz.), to advance to Thursday's quarterfinals at the inaugural Arizona Soccer Showcase.

Iolani, ranked No. 47 in the latest POWERADE FAB 50, faces No. 28 Pinnacle (Phoenix, Ariz.) in the quarterfinal round. Earlier in the event, Iolani (7-0-2) shut out Hamilton (Chandler, Ariz.) and Boulder Creek (Anthem, Ariz.).
