From the pitch….CHS girls move one step closer to state, plus college scores

Cedarcrest High School’s girls’ soccer team outlasted Burlington-Edison 1-0 last night in the Northwest 2A District playoffs at Burlington-Edison High School. Lauren Miller’s first-half goal, assisted by Sarah Hommas, proved to be enough as the Red Wolves took care of the Tigers. The win puts CHS into a winner-to-state semifinal Tuesday against Liberty at Liberty High School in Renton. The Red Wolves and Patriots earlier this season met at CHS with the two teams finishing in a scoreless draw. Game time has yet to be announced, but look for it to be a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.

College action from the pitch this morning:

Seattle Pacific 1, Concordia-PDX women 0 (OT): The Cavs’ season came to a heartbreaking end last night in Portland as they fell on a golden goal in overtime and were knocked out of postseason contention on the final night of the regular season. Concordia finishes 10-4-3 overall, 5-4-3 in GNAC play. Sophomore Karlie Hurley, from North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, started for Concordia and worked 65 minutes of play with no stats of note reported.

Simon Fraser 3, Northwest Nazarene women 1: SFU overtook the Cavs taking that fourth and final postseason spot into the GNAC tournament this coming week with a road win over the Crusaders in Nampa, ID, but NNU fans saw something special themselves – the first college goal for a Lower Valleyite. Freshman Sydney Kuehn’s tally for the Crusaders in the 55th minute was the 2016 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall’s first ever at the collegiate level, on a header off a feed from teammate Sarah Jenkins. Kuehn came off the bench and worked 53 minutes of play, recording two shots, both on goal with that one goal scored. NNU’s season ends at 4-13-0, 2-10-0 in GNAC play, while SFU moves to the playoffs with a 9-6-1 overall mark, 7-5 in conference.

Seattle Pacific men 2, St. Martin’s 1: SPU doubled up the host Saints in Lacey, with senior Davis Karaica, from Snoqualmie and a 2012 Mount Si HS alum, starting on defense for the Falcons and working the full 90 with no stats of note reported. Junior Chris Cole, from Duvall and a 2014 CHS’er, did not play for SPU in the contest.

Central Washington women 1, St. Martin’s 0: CWU’s first half goal finished things out well for the Wildcats as they move on to postseason with the road win in Lacey. Sophomore Michaela “K.K.” Wallace, from North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, came off the bench for Central and logged 15 minutes of play with no stats of note recorded. Central moves into the playoffs 13-4-1 overall, 8-3-1 in conference play. Postseason is next Thursday and Saturday in Burnaby, BC, at SFU’s campus.

Willamette 2, Whitman men 1: The Missionaries dropped to .500 in NWC play (4-4-4) with the road loss to the Bearcats in Salem, OR; freshman Jimmy Jacobson, from North Bend and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, started for Whitman and worked 58 minutes with no stats of note reported. The Missionaries are 8-6-4 overall.

Whitworth women 2, Lewis & Clark 1 (2OT): The Pirates’ Brooke Morrow delivered the game-winner in the second extra session as the Pirates held off the visitors from Portland at home yesterday in Spokane.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men 1, Whittier 0: Senior night for 2013 Mount Si HS grad Alex Censullo and his fellow members of CMS’ class of 2017 went well last night for the Stags as they closed out the regular season with a win at home in southern California; Censullo, from North Bend, started for CMS and worked 52 minutes with no stats of note reported. The Stags finish the regular season 11-6-1, 9-6-1 in conference, and advance to the playoffs on Thursday meeting Redlands.
