Gross’ efforts not enough in hockey team loss, plus college baseball as we start another weekend…..

Good Saturday morning.

We start with some hockey this morning and it was a tough night on the road down at Lake Tahoe last night for the Western States’ Hockey League’s Seattle Totems. Despite a contribution from their Valley rep, the Totems fell in the opener of a weekend set to their league rivals.

Seattle fell 6-4 to the host Icemen in South Lake Tahoe, CA, despite an assist from Mount Si High School senior Cam Gross; he aided a goal by teammate Michael Shippee in the first period which was the first of the game for Seattle. The Icemen rolled out to a big 5-2 lead after two and held on for the win.

The series continues through tomorrow in northern California.

We also have some college baseball to share with you this morning; here’s the scores from yesterday:

Oregon 11, UC Irvine 5: In the opener of the Tony Gwynn Classic in San Diego, the Ducks rolled over the southern California squad; sophomore Carson Breshears, from North Bend and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, played center field late in the game and was 0-1 with a run scored and a defensive putout.

Northern Colorado 1, San Jose State 0: At the Spartans weekend tournament in Stockton, CA, UNC held off the host school on the strength of a two-hit complete game shutout from starting pitcher Aaron Hamilton; the Bears’ left fielder, junior Evan Johnson, from Snoqualmie, was 0-3.

Northwestern (IA) 11, Missouri Valley 5 (game one, doubleheader): In Marshall, MO, Northwestern College took the first of two, with the help of Valleyite Joe Done; the ex-MSHS catcher caught for NC in the contest, going 2-4 with an RBI and 10 defensive putouts.

BYU 10, Northern Colorado 9 (10): The above mentioned win for the Bears came following a heartbreaking extra-inning loss in the first of two yesterday for UNCo; the Bears scored twice in the bottom of the ninth, including a run from the 2014 Mount Si High School grad, to tie things and force the 10th frame, which the Cougars took full advantage of. Johnson finished 1-4 with a run, RBI and a defensive putout.

Missouri Valley 7, Northwestern (IA) 3 (game two, doubleheader): Done was 1-4 with a run scored, and assisted on two defensive putouts playing third base for Northwestern, who fell in the nightcap, forcing a split of the twinbill. NC is now 3-3 on the season.
