On the pitch……

On the pitch this morning, we have news on both Mount Si and Cedarcrest’s girls’ soccer teams.

First, the Wildcats, and they fell at home last night in Snoqualmie to Skyline 2-1. Izzy Smith scored the lone Wildcat goal off a rebound from a shot by Mia Campo. Head coach Sophie Rockow, despite the lack of “W’s” is liking how her team is progressing this season. “Even though we didn’t get the result we wanted in terms of the score, it was the result we wanted in terms of how we played on the field,” Rockow told the SVSJ by email. “Best game yet for us I would say, and we’re planning on keeping this momentum going forward into the Newport game next week.”

That game is next Wednesday at Newport High School in Bellevue. Game time is 7:30 p.m. It is a must win for Mount Si if it wants to keep their playoff hopes alive. Currently, they’re one point behind Bothell for the final playoff spot, and will need this win and a lot of help to ensure a trip to the postseason.

Cedarcrest’s varsity got back on the winning track last night, however, beating Mountlake Terrace 3-0. More on this soon here. The Red Wolves’ JV’s and C’s played earlier this week as well, with the “C” team blasting Cascade Monday 7-1 behind Clarissa Cazares-Espinzoa’s four goals. Julia Louto added a pair and rounding out the goals was one from Kate Gallaher. Cazares-Espinoza and Luoto both had assists, as did Cece Stumbles.

The JV’s on Tuesday fell to Edmonds-Woodway 2-1 as the Warriors scored late to break the tie and escape Duvall with the win. No report from last night’s match with Mountlake Terrace although we hope to have one soon for you.

Now to the college scores from last night.

Concordia-PDX women 1, Seattle Pacific 0: The Cavs held off the Falcons in Seattle. North Bend’s Karlie Hurley played her last college game in front of friends and family; the Concordia senior, a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, worked 76 minutes of the game after starting for the Cavs and logged one shot, which was not on goal; she did not score any goals in the contest for Concordia.

Seattle Pacific men 4, Western Washington 2: SPU doubled up the visiting Vikings in a rivalry battle in Seattle. The Duvall trio of Nik Reierson, Alden Massey and Chris Cole all played in this one for the Falcons and one was a factor. Sophomore Reierson assisted on the second SPU goal, scored in the seventh minute by teammate Travis Swallow. The 2017 Cedarcrest HS grad started on defense and worked the full 90 with no other stats of note. Falcon freshman Massey started as well. The June CHS’er logged 62 minutes of work with a shot – on goal – recorded but no goals scored, and senior Cole, a 2014 Red Wolve alum, played limited minutes off the bench with no stats of note reported.

Central Washington women 3, St. Martin’s 2 (2OT): The Wildcats outlasted the Saints in the second extra session, scoring the game-winner in Lacey in the 103rd minute. Senior Michaela “K.K.” Wallace, she of North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, started for Central and logged 48 minutes of work with one shot recorded; it was not on goal and she did not score any goals in the contest.

Hawaii Pacific women 1, Biola 1 (2OT): The Sharks and the visitors from California battled for 110 minutes down on the island of Oahu in Hawaii with no victor. Junior Camryn Buck, sister of Mount Si’s Joelle and a defender for HPU, started and worked the full 110 for the Sharks. The 2015 MSHS alum did not record any stats in the contest for the Sharks.
