Mount Si’s boys’ soccer team remains unbeaten after home win over Eastlake

Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team delivered another win last night, this time their first Kingco Crest Division win, scoring it 3-1 over Eastlake at home in Snoqualmie in their delayed home opener; last Friday’s originally-scheduled home debut, against Lake Washington, was moved to Fall City due to remaining snow inside Mount Si’s stadium, which melted off over the weekend in the warm conditions allowing for the field to be useable for last night’s game.

Drew Harris and Mateo DiDomenico had the goals for Mount Si; Harris scored a pair. Wildcat coach Darren Brown, while pleased with the 4-0 start, still believes there is tremendous room for improvement. “The good news…we are 4-0 and winning matches while playing a half of what we are capable of doing. What we cannot do is mentally come out a deer in a headlight with the way we prep. That is not acceptable,” Brown told the SVSJ by email. “We have a deep roster that we can utilize; we did it last night and had some great results from Cade Hahn and Banner Hovigna. Cade did his job last night and prevented a couple serious lapses on our part. Banner has serious energy and his presence settled the (midfield) down, which was needed.”

The coach also offered praise for his two goal-scorers. “I thought Mateo (DiDomenico) was electric in the second half. I also felt the same about Drew (again)…..give him any daylight and that is what can happen real quick,” he said.

Mount Si is at Redmond Friday for a huge 7:30 p.m. clash with the Mustangs, who are also 2-0 in league, but 5-0 overall. So this will be a big test for sure, and a must see if you are a Wildcat soccer fan.
