Mount Si girls’ soccer falls to Inglemoor, plus news on CHS ladies and also college women’s soccer…….

Mount Si High School’s girls’ soccer team fell on the road 1-0 last night at Inglemoor, as the Wildcats remain winless in league play.

“We controlled the pace most of the contest and had plenty of opportunities but just could not convert,” wrote a disappointed MSHS coach Darren Brown to the SVSJ. He, however, still has hope for the rest of the season. “The girls are improving though and a lot of the green is starting to wear off which is a positive sign. I’m proud of the way we played tonight,” Brown wrote. “A lot of these girls with first year varsity experience are getting quality minutes in this tough conference we play in. They have a great attitude and keep competing so we are optimistic of what’s ahead of us.”

Mount Si hosts Woodinville tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at Mount Si High School.

Also this morning from the ladies’ pitch:

Cedarcrest, Granite Falls fight it out to draw: The Cedarcrest Red Wolves ran into a strong and physical Granite Falls squad, whose defense held the Red Wolves’ solid offense at bay. The two squads went the full 90 – regulation and two extra sessions – with the contest ending in a scoreless draw Monday night at Cedarcrest High School. Coach Alex Hickox, in comments on the team’s Facebook page, noted the Red Wolves dominated in the match, controlling the possession and outshooting GF 21-3.

With the Red Wolves starting to get back on pace after the injury to goalie Dakota Barnes during the game against the Wildcats September 17, CHS didn’t need any more top players getting hurt, but that unfortunately was the case in Monday night’s game. Hickox reported that senior Emma Cremeen and junior Kate Hickox both were injured in the contest. Cremeen hurt her ankle and Hickox left the game with a back injury. According to the coach, both players were not hurt seriously and are day-to-day, so it is hoped the two will be back in action for their next game, which is tonight at South Whidbey. The match kicks off at 6:00 p.m., with the JV’s preceding that at 4:00. Speaking of the Red Wolve junior varsity, CHS blanked the Tigers 2-0 and remain undefeated at 9-0-0 on the season. Olivia Fulton and Courtney Ahearn scored the two Red Wolves’ tallies in the contest.

Valleyite earns college conference recognition: The Northwest Conference of NCAA Division III has named Whitworth junior forward Leah Corra, from Ames Lake and a 2014 Mount Si High School alum, its Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the week of September 19-25, as announced Monday by the conference office. Corra scored a pair of goals in games last week, both of which helped the Pirates post wins, first over Whitman last Wednesday, then this past Sunday over Willamette.

Her high school head coach, Brown, is thrilled. “So proud of Leah,” he wrote by email to the SVSJ. “Corra has always (played) the game with her toughness and determination and it is not surprising to see her success carry over to the college game. She is one of the toughest kids to wear the Wildcat uniform.”

Whitworth’s two wins put them at .500 in conference play (2-2) going into this week’s games, 3-5 overall, so they’ll be looking to the former MSHS’er to help continue their rise to the top of the conference standings. The Pirates travel to Oregon this weekend for games against Lewis & Clark Saturday in Portland and George Fox on Sunday in Newberg.

Azusa women, league foe end in scoreless draw: Azusa Pacific and Cal Baptist played 110 minutes of college women’s soccer last night – regulation and two extra sessions – but neither side could get any offense going as the two squads ended in a 0-0 tie at CBU’s field in Riverside, CA. Junior Kelsey Lindor, from Snoqualmie and Corra’s fellow 2014 MSHS alum, saw about four minutes of action late in the first half for the visiting Cougars off the bench and made those minutes count, taking a shot which did not reach goal.
