Wildcat soccer needs extra time to beat North Creek

Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team rallied for an overtime win last night over North Creek.

Sullivan Smith and Drew Harris each had a goal for Mount Si as they rebounded from a 1-0 deficit for a 2-1 extra-time victory over the Jaguars which went as Wildcat coach Darren Brown expected it would. “Well, I have to say our scouting report was spot on (thank you Scouting Director- Dan Kirby),” Brown said to the SVSJ by email. “I thought North Creek did a good job of taking away some of our strengths and was a gamble but they got that first goal and anything can happen with momentum. We had the ball for three-fourths of the night in the attacking third but could not find the net. North Creek did a good job of compacting defensively and then opening up on the attack which stretched us wide. It also made us vulnerable on multiple occasions. North Creek is a good squad and I appreciate how hard they worked.”

Reed Paradissis and Paul Talens assisted on the two goals.

Mount Si is home on Friday to meet Camas from southwest Washington. Brown is ready. “Camas is a solid program and we will need as much prep as we can get in before then.” The 7:00 p.m. game will be the first of back-to-back games against teams from the Greater St. Helens League; the Wildcats on Saturday afternoon host the Papermakers’ rival, Union. That game starts at 1:00 p.m.
