Time to start the weekend – here’s last night’s football, soccer and volleyball action for you

Good Saturday morning.

We’ll try to get you some stats on both games soon, but we have our first 0-2 week of the Valley high school football season in picks, as both games on the gridiron went against our predictions last night.

Mount Si routed Skyline 42-7 on the Sammamish Plateau in a game we picked the Spartans to win, while up north, Blaine did the same to Cedarcrest 49-8 in a game we picked the Red Wolves to win. Mount Si’s win locks up the Crest Division Kingco 4A championship, and home-field for the title game in two weeks against Woodinville, while the Red Wolves’ loss drops them to fifth in the Northwest District’s Lake Division at 1-3 in league, 3-4 overall.

Mount Si hosts Homecoming next week against Newport, while CHS is home for Senior Night against Mountlake Terrace.

College action now:

Women’s Soccer
Idaho 1, Idaho State 0 (OT): The Vandals and Bengals needed extra time to decide this rivalry clash inside the Kibbie Dome over on the Idaho campus last night in Moscow, ID, with UI coming out on top. Valley athletes started for both teams on their respective defenses. Sophomore Rachel Brownell, from Fall City, worked 59 minutes on ISU’s back line while senior Claire Johnson, from Snoqualmie, logged 83 minutes. Johnson had a shot on goal recorded with no goals scored for the Vandals, while Brownell had no stats of note. Both young ladies are Mount Si High School grads – Johnson in 2015 and Brownell in 2017.

Chapman 5, UC Santa Cruz 1: Chapman rolled to the easy home win in Orange, CA, giving freshman Mia Fowler an opportunity to get some work in; the June MSHS alum from North Bend came off the bench for CU and logged 53 minutes with no stats of note reported.

Volleyball
Carr’s double-double lifts Northwest to hard-fought win in nail-biter: The Northwest U. ladies and host Northwest Christian put on a barn-burner last night down in Eugene, OR, with the Eagles coming out on top just barely in five sets. Scores were 19-25, 25-23, 29-27, 21-25, 15-13 as NWU got a double-double from Valleyite Courteney Carr to lift them to the huge road win.

Carr, a sophomore and 2017 Mount Si HS grad, had 44 assists and 16 digs to pace the Eagles. She also had two blocks for Northwest, who moved to 9-4 in Cascade (NAIA) conference play, 13-9 overall and is at Corban tonight in Salem, OR.

Mount Si grad’s efforts not enough as Broncos swept: North Bend’s Anna McCreadie had eight kills and a block for Santa Clara’s squad on Thursday, but the Broncos fell in three to visiting San Diego 25-22, 26-24, 26-24 in northern California.

McCreadie, a junior and 2015 Mount Si HS grad, has seen on-and-off action this season for Clara, who is winless in West Coast Conference (NCAA Division I) play this season at 0-7 in conference.
