Mount Si football season ends in heartbreak, plus news from the colleges as we start the weekend

Time now for the wrapup, and we begin on the gridiron, where for the first time since the opening-round playoff format was implemented in 2006, Mount Si High School’s football team fell in a week 10 playoff game, and did so in what was arguably the most painful end to a season for this football program in nearly 10 years.

Monroe’s Isaiah Lewis scored a touchdown with 17 seconds left to give the Bearcats the lead, and the Monroe defense held on through one last furious comeback attempt by the Wildcats’ vaunted offense, helping the Bearcats hand Mount Si a devastating 44-40 loss that ends the Wildcats’ season at 7-3. The boys left it all out there, rallying a couple of times to make things interesting, but Monroe took advantage of a late Wildcat turnover and just had a few too many weapons at the end.

More on last night’s game from the Everett Herald, and here’s all the scoring.

Sterling (KS) men end season with playoff loss: Considering they lost to their playoff opponent Oklahoma Wesleyan 8-0 in the regular season, the first-round Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (NAIA) playoff matchup between the two teams in Bartlesville, OK, last night was not expected to be an easy one for Sterling. OKWU did get the win, but Sterling’s defense, aided by North Bend’s Colton Oord, shut down the home side’s offense in a big way, limiting the OKWU offense to just one first half goal that deflected off the post and in behind the Sterling keeper. Oord, a junior, worked the full 90, with one foul that resulted in a OKWU penalty kick attempt which missed wide off the post. Oord is a 2015 Mount Si High School grad, and Sterling’s season ended at 4-13-2.

Carr makes season debut at LMU: After being out all season with injuries, Snoqualmie’s Lindsay Carr made her season debut on Thursday for Loyola Marymount University down in Los Angeles as they swept Gonzaga. Carr, a junior and 2014 MSHS grad, had limited minutes, but did record a kill that set up the middle frame win for the home side in their 25-12, 25-12, 25-16 rout of the Bulldogs. The Lions host Portland this afternoon in the City of Angels.

St. Martin’s falls on road: Also on Thursday, the St. Martin’s squad fell in four over at Northwest Nazarene in Nampa, ID, 25-13, 25-20, 20-25, 25-16. Junior Liz Larson, she of Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si HS alum, had a kill, two aces, four blocks and a dig aiding the Saints, who dropped to 8-15 on the season with the loss.
