Fall sports winds down…….

Fall sports is winding down for Valley high schools, as evidenced by a pair of results for Mount Si High School teams the last two days.

Mount Si’s football season ended with a bang last night in Everett, as the Wildcats easily rolled to one last win to close out 2016.

QB Cale Millen threw for six touchdowns and fellow QB Zeke Barden connected on two more, aiding Mount Si’s 62-13 rout of the Everett Seagulls from Wesco 3A at Memorial Stadium in Everett. The Wildcats took a 41-7 lead to halftime and cruised from there as they finish their season at 5-5 scoring an average of almost 58 points in their last three games, all wins, definitely a good sign of what fans should expect from this team perhaps next season.

Meanwhile, Mount Si’s girls’ volleyball team saw its season come to an end Thursday night as they were swept by Bothell.

The Cougars took care of the Wildcats 25-18, 25-16, 25-17 to advance in the Kingco playoffs at Bothell High School, ending Mount Si’s season at 6-9 overall, 3-4 in Kingco 4A play.

Senior Sophie Click, in her final high school game, recorded eight kills, 16 digs and a block leading the Wildcats, while fellow seniors Courteney Carr (20 assists, eight digs) and Cameron Kendall (16 digs), also playing in their final high school games, gave great efforts to aid the Wildcats.

Emma Anderson also provided a solid effort, with six kills and three digs.

Also, Cedarcrest High School’s football season was scheduled to wrap up this week with a game against Sehome; no report was made available on that game for us. Both schools’ cross country teams finish up their seasons today at the state meet in Pasco. More on that tomorrow.

Now to college action from last night:

Soccer
Valleyite aids Seattle U. women in playoff win: North Bend’s Karli White assisted on what turned out to be the game-winning goal for Seattle U. in the first half as they advanced to tomorrow’s Western Athletic Conference title game with a shot at a berth in the NCAA playoffs, beating Utah Valley University 2-1. The sophomore, a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, also recorded one shot in goal in her 56 minutes of work for the Redhawks, who will face tournament host Missouri-Kansas City in the finals tomorrow. UMKC blanked Cal State Bakersfield in the other tournament semi last night. SU beat UMKC in the two teams’ regular season matchup October 20 in Seattle.

Basketball
Northwest U. women beat Benedictine-AZ, with small contribution from Valleyite: In Mesa, AZ, the Eagles held off the hosts from Arizona 79-72 picking up another win; junior Kalee Fowler, from Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, scored two points and collected a rebound in 10 minutes of work off the bench for Northwest.
