Mount Si boys’ soccer falls for first time in a potential Kingco title preview clash, plus volleyball…..

Good Sunday morning. A lot to get to and we start with soccer.

Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team fell Friday night in what could have been a Kingco 4A title preview, to the unbeaten Redmond Mustangs.

Redmond, on home turf at RHS, blanked the Wildcats 3-0 handing Mount Si its first loss of the season. “Was a tough loss to swallow (Friday) but, the bottom line is we got beat,” said Mount Si coach Darren Brown by email to the SVSJ. “Redmond’s bread and butter is sets and turnovers. We had a 8:1 turn over margin in the second half and provided them free looks.”

Mount Si will resume play on Tuesday at home against Woodinville, and it could be an interesting game for sure. “Ben (Tomlisson, assistant coach) and I will tweak a few things for Tuesday with Woodinville at our house. It is the right time to do so with the flu bug going around and list of injuries right now,” Brown said. Among the injuries is one to Jared Davies, who hurt his ankle in the contest and is out indefinitely, although Brown indicated the prognosis appears better than had initially been feared, so perhaps Davies will be back sooner than anticipated.

The Wildcats and Falcons meet at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night.

Also this morning:

Valley players, teams shut out of tournament berths in Spokane: The final day of play today in the opening weekend of the Pacific Northwest Qualifier national qualifying tournament in Spokane will see none of the area teams with Mount Si High School players on them competing for a spot at the upcoming USA Volleyball national youth girls’ tournament later this summer.

That became official with two losses late yesterday for the Kent Juniors’ U-15 team, a team featuring Wildcat freshmen Jade Petrzelka, Kira Holmberg and Paige Phelps. After we posted our coverage yesterday from the opening day of play, Kent fell to teams from Texas and California, ending their 4-0 start in the tournament and dropping them into their “Silver” playoff bracket today within their age group. The remaining teams with Mount Si’ers also did not earn trips into the championship rounds in their respective age divisions, so everyone today will be competing for hardware from this weekend’s events, but no national berths will be at stake.

We’ll keep you posted on the rest of the weekend here.
