From the pitch and some diamond cuts as well on this Friday……

Good Friday morning. Diamond cuts on tap, but a quick note from the pitch and that is the Eastside FC girls’ 98 Red team, from Preston, finished up play at the US Youth Soccer nationals in suburban Dallas yesterday with a loss in their final game at the event. The club squad, coached by ex-MSHS boys’ soccer coach Tom Bialek and which features senior-to-be Wildcat defender Natalie Weidenbach, fell 2-0 to a team from Chicago and finished winless in pool play at 0-3.

The playoff rounds start today with EFC having been eliminated from that following their heartbreaking loss on Wednesday to a team from North Carolina.

Now to the diamond cuts.

MVP Wilson (CA) 9, Northwest Naturals 15U Navy 1: At the Xtreme World Series in San Diego, Mount Si High School’s Trevor Aman led the Sammamish-based Nats, going 2-3 with their lone RBI, as they fell to a California team.

SoCal Diablos 10, Seattle Select 15U Black 9: Seattle’s lone game on Thursday in San Diego was a loss to a California squad despite a good effort from MSHS’ Will Caro; he went 0-3, reaching on an error, recording a walk and scoring two runs.

NorCal Scorpions 6, Northwest Naturals 15U Navy 1: Also in San Diego, Wildcat Blake Meister was 0-1 with the Nats’ lone RBI in this game as they fell to a second California team. Aman was 0-2 in the contest.

Boys of Summer 15U 8, Pierce County Diamond Jaxx 6: At the Lee Johnson Invite here in Bellevue, Bellevue-based BoS held off the south Sound team with Mount Si’s Trace Halvorson going 0-2 with two walks and a run scored for Boys.

Hanover Lady Hornets (VA) 8, Washington Majestics 16U 4: This week, the Tacoma-based Majestics, featuring ex-Cedarcrest High School pitcher Lauren Rich, are at a tournament in Georgia, and last night, Rich saw work in the circle for the Majestics in this loss to a Richmond, VA, team that knocked them out of the event. Rich allowed a pair of runs, one earned, on two hits, walking one, in 1/3 of an inning.

Northwest Batbusters 18U Wilson 6, San Diego Relentless 2: Snoqualmie’s Colleen Campbell was dominant in the circle for the Portland-based Batbusters in their win at the USSSA Western Nationals in southern California. Campbell, a senior-to-be at Forest Ridge School in Bellevue, pitched three innings of one-hit ball, walking one and striking out four, as NWBW posted the win. Fellow Valleyite Heather Hinton, from Mount Si High School, was 0-1 with a walk and a run scored for the Batbusters.

Washington Majestics 7, Gold Coast Hurricanes (FL) 5: Also at their tournament in Georgia, but earlier yesterday, the Majestics sank the Florida-based ‘Canes with Rich getting a no-decision, allowing four runs on four hits in 3 2/3 innings of work. Those of you who are regulars here know that Rich, a junior-to-be, this spring played for a suburban Dallas, TX, high school team after she and her family moved there last year from the lower Valley. The Majestics went 2-1 yesterday and finished the tournament 3-3-1; Rich did not play in the third game of the day, a win over a Houston-area team.
