Weekend wrap…..

Good Monday morning. Athlete of the Week coming up but first, our weekend wrap.

Soccer
Washington U.-St. Louis women 3, Case Western Reserve 0: The Bears finished their road swing to Pittsburgh and Cleveland with another win moving them into first place overall in their conference standings. Senior Katie Chandler, from Fall City, scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal for WUStL in the first half and worked 74 minutes of the contest, recording two shots, with that goal being on her lone shot on goal. The tally was Chandler’s seventh of the season, her third straight game-winner, and, according to the school, was her 32nd overall as a collegian, putting her in eighth place all time in Bear program history. The Bears are now 13-2-2 overall, 4-1-1 in conference play.

Linfield 1, Whitman men 0 (OT): The Wildcats won in overtime scoring the game’s lone goal in the 93rd minute for just their second win of the season, beating the Missionaries at home in McMinnville, OR. Freshman Jimmy Jacobson, from North Bend and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, started and played 61 minutes for Whitman, recording one shot that did not reach goal.

Whitworth women 2, George Fox 0: The Pirates blanked the visiting Bruins at home in Spokane, asserting their third-place position in the conference standings (8-6-0 NWC, 9-9-0 overall). Junior Leah Corra, from Ames Lake and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, came off the bench for Whitworth and logged 16 minutes of playing time with no stats of note reported.

Oregon State 1, Washington women 0: The Huskies fell at home yesterday in Seattle to the Beavers; senior Miranda Rawlings, from North Bend and a 2013 Mount Si HS grad, started for the UW and worked 32 minutes, recording one shot that did not reach goal.

Baseball
Marenco hitless as Puyallup select team falls: Mount Si High School senior Mason Marenco the past couple of days had a strong bat, helping his Puyallup-based select baseball teams post wins at a couple of out-of-town tournaments. Yesterday was a different story, though.

Marenco was 0-3 with two strikeouts as the Northwest Elite U18 Senior Scout Team fell to the Utah-based Riverton BBA 6-1 to wrap up their weekend tournament in Las Vegas. Fellow Wildcat senior Gavin Gorrell finally got a chance to pitch for Elite yesterday after not doing so either Friday or Saturday, and he was dominant, allowing one hit over three innings with five strikeouts and a no-decision.
