7:14: TJ DeFalco with his 17th kill. Beach up 15-14 at the TTO.
7:08. This should be a delay of game. Beach already had two different players in the box. Scoreboard wrong too.
7:06: Ball called in. it’s 12-10 Beach. Would have been 11-11.
7:06: Beach challenging ball in. Believe this is the 49ers last challenge.
7:06: Kyle Ensing continues to go under the net and landing on Colton Cowell. IMHO this isn’t right.

3:36: Two aces by TJ DeFalco and it’s 17-15. TO Warriors
still baffled by a couple of calls that didn’t go Hawaii’s way, including DeFalco flying under the net onto Hawaii’s side. It’s how Hendrik Mol got hurt.
3:26: Beach wins challenge, it’s 8-8.
3:24: So after lengthy discussion. Beach challenging touch on the block. at the moment it’s 9-7 Hawaii.
