PK’s, and a goalie-on-goalie clash, decide it for Mount Si boys’ soccer as they head to state with dramatic win

Mount Si High School’s boys soccer team is headed back to state for only the third time in school history, and first since 2010, after a dramatic win last night in the Kingco playoffs against Issaquah.

The Wildcats and Eagles each scored a goal in the second half – with Issy’s goal coming with minutes left in stoppage time – to go to overtime tied 1-1. The overtime could not decide it, so off to penalty kicks it went, and this thing went a little longer than expected. Both sides completed four of five shots in their initial series of attempts, necessitating a series of extra kicks that were golden in nature. On the fourth of these, Mount Si goalie Colby Ramsey, after making three straight saves on Issaquah in this sequence, fired it home past his Eagle counterpart to give the Wildcats a 5-4 shootout win and 2-1 game win at Skyline High School in Sammamish, sending them to the state playoffs and Issy home after failing twice to secure a trip. They fell in the Kingco title game, also winner to state, Thursday to Skyline.

Mount Si will meet Sumner in the loser-out first round at Sumner likely on Tuesday, although official date and time have not yet been announced. The game either will be at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner (SHS’ home field) or at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup. As soon as we get word, we’ll let you know.
