Mount Si football news

We have some news as well this morning. Mount Si High School yesterday announced that their home playoff football game will be on Saturday afternoon.

The game, against an opponent to be determined from the South Puget Sound League, will be at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at MSHS’ stadium in Snoqualmie. According to the school, there’s a couple of reasons for this scheduling as opposed to it being on Friday night. First, there is a pigtail playoff game tonight in the SPSL (more on that in a moment) that will determine the opponent for the Wildcats, and second, Mount Si High School’s drama program is performing a play this weekend and there are showings scheduled for both Saturday afternoon (2:00) and evening (7:00), so the school determined the afternoon start would least impact any folks coming to see the drama students perform in their play, which will be in the school’s auditorium.

SPSL pigtail game tonight
As noted, Mount Si’s opponent will be determined tonight in this South Puget Sound League “pigtail playoff” contest, so expect plenty of Wildcat coaching staff at minimum to be down there, and perhaps a few of you fans as well. The games start at 7:00 p.m. at Art Crate Stadium in Spanaway, and feature Curtis from Tacoma, Rogers from Puyallup, and Sumner.

According to CascadiaPreps writer – and WIAA football seeding committee member – Ryland Spencer, who tweeted this out last week, Curtis won a coin toss so they will earn a bye out of the first game. Sumner and Rogers will play first, with the winner advancing to districts and the loser playing Curtis following. Each team will be guaranteed two possessions using the modified Kansas tiebreaker. Two teams will advance out of the mini-playoff and will be seeded following the games.

Directions to Art Crate Stadium: Those of you planning on trekking down for the game tonight to scout out the potential Mount Si opposition should be aware that this will be a bit of a trek. Art Crate Stadium is located in Spanaway and is a good hour-plus each way from the Valley. Mount Si played here a couple years ago when they last went to state against Graham-Kapowsin, so some of you already know how long a drive this is. Those who don’t will soon realize it.

To get there, you take SR 18 from Snoqualmie down to Auburn and SR 167. Take SR 167 south to Puyallup and SR 512. Once on 512, you have two choices to access the field:

A. Follow SR 512 all the way to Tacoma and SR 7. Exit here and go south on SR 7 past the Roy “Y” to 224th St. East. A Fred Meyer is located on this corner for easy reference. Turn left on 224th and follow east to 38th Ave. East. Bethel High School will be on your left here; turn left into the school and parking. Stadium is behind the high school.

B. Exit SR 512 at SR 161 (Meridian) and follow south on 161 to 224th. Turn right here and head west to the above-mentioned location at Bethel High School. Stadium and parking will be on your right.

SPSL admission charges will be charged so call any of those three schools today for more information on that before you head down.

Perhaps later, we’ll have a brief preview and thoughts on the three teams in tonight’s game.

One other item from Mount Si High School’s football program for you:

MSHS grad has a chance to continue his football career in college
Former Mount Si receiver Eric Daniels, who graduated from Mount Si in 2017, looks to be headed to a four-year school to wrap up his college football career.

Daniels, who has played the past two seasons for Feather River Community College in California, announced on Twitter yesterday he has been offered a scholarship to continue his college career at Allen University. Allen, an NAIA school, is located in South Carolina.

If Daniels accepts the offer, he’ll be suiting up for Allen this fall. We wish him luck. We’ll get you some numbers on Daniels later for you down at Feather River.
