The Baldwin High School and Kamehameha Maui boys bowling teams are headed to a roll-off.

Baldwin got a 187 from Christopher Keanini-Higa in defeating Maui High 2-1. Kainalu Torres-Estores had a 175 and Jarin Tateishi a 171 for the Bears.

Zachary Domingo (194-177), Jeremy Peros (170) and Cy Fernandez (168) led the way for the Sabers (13-11).

Four-time MIL girls champion Kamehameha Maui (21-3) finished off its season with a 2-1 win over King Kekaulike.

Tahan Valdez and Nadia Apo-Takayama each bowled high games of 149, and Keala Ching added 132 for the Warriors. Na Alii (1-23) were led by Mahiole Austring (155).

Also on Saturday, the Baldwin girls closed with a 2-1 victory over Maui High.
