Friday news notes

Hello, everyone, and good morning. We have a high school sports preview and our first week of high school gridiron previews and picks on deck, but first, we have a wrapup on action involving locals, both from the colleges and pros, from last night for you.

Women’s Soccer
Hawaii Pacific 2, Pace 1 (OT): The Sharks opened the season with an extra-time win over the visitors from New York. Sophomore Camryn Buck, she of Ames Lake and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, started on defense for HPU and worked the full 93 minutes of the contest (the game-winner in extra time was scored in the 93rd minute) with no stats of note reported.

Western Washington 3, Notre Dame de Namur 1: Western handled NDNU with ease in their regular season opener down in northern California yesterday; junior Karli White, she of North Bend and a 2015 MSHS’er new this year to the Vikings after transferring in the offseason from NCAA Division I Seattle University, played 28 minutes off the bench, recording two shots, one on goal, with no goals scored for Western.

Concordia-PDX 2, San Francisco State 1 (2OT): Concordia needed two extra sessions to outlast the visitors from San Francisco last night to open the season at home in Portland on the right note. Junior Karlie Hurley, she of North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, started and played 81 of the 104 minutes that were contested in the battle (the game-winner in the second overtime was scored in the 104th minute), firing two shots, neither of which reached goal, so no goals were scored.

Idaho State handles WOU: The Division I FCS Bengals easily handled the Division II Wolves 37-6 last night in the season opener for both teams in Pocatello, ID. Senior Brad Christensen, he of Snoqualmie and a 2014 MSHS alum, started on the offensive line last night for Western Oregon in the contest.

Carr paces Northwest U.: 2017 Mount Si grad Courteney Carr, she of Snoqualmie, paced Northwest U. with 22 assists, helping the Eagles sweep visiting Walla Walla in three, 25-10, 25-17, 25-19, in the conference opener for both teams in Kirkland last night. Carr also recorded six digs, three aces and two kills for NWU, who moves to 7-2 on the season with the win.

Lane dominant: North Bend’s Trevor Lane got the job done once more for his minor league team last night as they posted another win.

Lane worked two innings on the mound in relief for the Tampa Yankees, and the 2012 Mount Si HS grad, allowed two hits and struck out one, helping the Florida State League class “advanced A” team post a 6-1 win last night over the visiting Lakeland Flying Tigers, affiliated with the Detroit Tigers. Lane received no decision and his earned run average with Tampa improved to a solid 3.32 with the performance. Tampa with the win moved to 83-49 and is headed to the playoffs so Lane should see more action before the season ends.

Buhner in action again: Fall City’s Gunnar Buhner saw action once again for the Philadelphia Phillie rookies yesterday as they fell to a New York Yankees’ rookie club.

Buhner, a 2013 Mount Si HS grad, was 0-1 in late-inning action as a third baseman for Philly, who fell 8-6 to New York in the Gulf Coast League “rookie”-class contest in Tampa. Buhner, now hitting .122 this season, is in his first pro season after having graduated this spring from Lewis-Clark State College in Idaho.
