Cedarcrest baseball, on neutral ground, scores win, plus our Saturday morning headlines……

Good Saturday morning.

The rains yesterday may have moved Cedarcrest High School’s scheduled home baseball game with Edmonds-Woodway to neutral ground in Mountlake Terrace, but it did not stop the Red Wolves, as they posted a win.

Luke Mallory delivered with the bat, going 3-4 with a run scored and two RBI’s, and pitchers Cole Linder and Nate Hoyer combined to shut down the Ed-Wood bats as Cedarcrest handled the Warriors 7-2.

Linder and Chris Busch each had two hits and an RBI aiding the Cedarcrest efforts.

The Red Wolves opened the scoring in the second. With two out and runner Zach Brown on third base (he reached on a single to lead off the frame), Busch singled to score his Red Wolve teammate. After the Warriors tied it with a run in their half of the third, thanks to a Linder wild pitch, the Red Wolves scored three in the bottom of the frame to take the lead as it turned out for good. With two out and runners at first and second (Brown and Mallory respectively after both had reached on earlier singles in the frame), Linder singled.

Ed-Wood center fielder Ian Michael attempted to field the ball but misplayed it, and that allowed both Mallory and Brown to score. Linder made it all the way to third, and as the pitcher, he is permitted to be replaced by a so-called “courtesy runner” which he was by head coach Scott Goldsberry. He inserted Deuce Knowles in as the runner, and Knowles scored on a single by Kian Pegueros-Warren finishing out the three-run onslaught.

Three more runs scored in the fourth for the Red Wolves, and while Ed-Wood scored once more in the sixth, Hoyer was able to shut the door in the seventh and lock down another RPI-aiding Wesco victory over a 3A foe.

Linder allowed a run on four hits, walking three and striking out two in a 70-pitch 4 1/3 innings of work, while Hoyer threw almost 40 pitches over the final 2 2/3 innings, allowing a run on two hits, walking two and striking out two. Linder earned a win while Hoyer had no decision.

Gunnar Whitelaw had a hit and run scored pacing the Warriors. Ed-Wood next plays Mount Si tomorrow at T-Mobile Park, while Cedarcrest will meet the Warriors again next Tuesday.

Perhaps not the way you want to go into your big day on the big stage if you’re Mount Si…..
The Wildcats will host Ed-Wood in their annual game at the newly renamed Seattle Mariners’ home ballpark tomorrow, but will need to get the hot bats going in a hurry. They went cold last night in a run-rule loss on the Sammamish Plateau to Eastlake.

Calvin Kirchoff went 3-3 with a double and four RBI’s, and pitcher Elston Miller allowed just three runs, two earned, on four hits, striking out four, as the Wolves won it in six innings on the run rule 13-3.

Cam Ferreri paced Mount Si, going 1-2 with an RBI. Jack Mardon also had a hit and scored a run for the Wildcats, who play their T-Mobile clash tomorrow at 2:00. This is the first time in the 10-plus years of this thing that the game is on a Sunday.

Wildcat JV rained out: The JV game last night at Eastlake between the two teams that was supposed to precede the varsity game was rained out and is being made up today following Mount Si’s regularly scheduled game at Skyline. The Wildcats will do the Skyline game first, then head the five minutes down 228th Avenue to Eastlake’s campus in Sammamish to make up the rained out game from last night.

With that, time now for the rest of the high school scoreboard from last night. All of our coverage this morning is from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Kingco 4A: Inglemoor 8, Bothell 5 – Round one of the baseball “Spaghetti Bowl” last night at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore went to the host Vikings, anchored by a two-double effort by Sean Mulcare; he scored a run and drove in three to lead the black and gold. Evan Berry went 2-3 with a double for Bothell; he scored a run and drove in another to lead the Blue Train. Erik Bainter also had two hits and a run scored for the Cougars.

Kingco 4A: Woodinville 5, North Creek 1 – The other Northshore district rivalry clash last night went to the Falcons at home over the Jaguars. Josh Spencer went 2-3 with two runs scored leading Woody, and Trent Boyd doubled and scored a run as well for the home side. North Creek was led by Jon Cohen, who went 3-4 with a run scored. Jaden Landagora also tripled for the Jags.

Wesco 3A: Archbishop Murphy 4, Lynnwood 3 – Cedarcrest’s game was not the only one shifted to Mountlake Terrace due to last night’s rain; this one was, too, played after the Red Wolves won their game. Josiah Santiago led Murphy, going 3-4 with two doubles, a run scored and RBI as ATM got some playoff bonus RPI points for beating the league 3A foe. Josh Latimer had a hit and two RBI’s pacing Lynnwood.

Wesco 3A: Everett 14, Oak Harbor 0 – Nick Mardesich pitched a no-hitter for Everett, striking out one, as the Seagulls rolled over the Wildcats on Whidbey Island. Abe Affholter doubled and tripled, scoring two runs and driving in another for Everett, while Aaron Robertson aldo had two hits, including a double, scored a run and drove in two.

Wesco 3A: Stanwood 7, Marysville-Getchell 2 – Darren Smith went 2-4 with a double and two runs driven in for the Spartans as they took care of the visiting Chargers at home in Stanwood. Ethan Kemp also had two hits, including a double, and scored a run. Garrett Deveroux went 2-3 with an RBI for Getchell, and Trevor Loucks also had two hits.

Wesco 3A: Meadowdale 11, Shorecrest 3 – Meadowdale scored seven in the fourth to rebound from an early 3-0 deficit to the Scots then cruised from there for the road win at Shorecrest High School in Shoreline. Brady Johnson went 2-3 with a run scored and three RBI’s for the Mavericks, while Caleb Berry also had two hits, scored two runs and drove in two more. Davis Stallings led Shorecrest, with a triple, walk, run scored and two RBI’s.

Wesco 3A: Shorewood 8, Mountlake Terrace 1 – The reason Mountlake’s field was available to host both Cedarcrest and Lynnwood’s games last night was the Hawks were on the road, getting blown out by the T-birds just down I-5 in Shoreline. Ethan Dunne went 1-3 and scored the lone Mountlake run while for Shorewood, Bryce Lindberg tripled to headline a two-hit effort, scoring a run and driving in another.

Wesco 4A: Jackson 1, Cascade 0 – The pitchers from both teams dominated as the two teams only mustered a combined four hits in this one in south Everett. Case Matter from the Timberwolves outdueled his Bruin counterpart Gage Davis. Both went the distance on the hill for their respective teams, with Matter firing a two-hitter and striking out 11, and Davis allowing an unearned run on two hits as well, striking out four. The one run was scored in the first, with Matter scoring it on a Cascade error on a grounder by Ben Steck, who was credited with an RBI.

Wesco 4A: Monroe 4, Mount Vernon 3 – Andrew Haight tripled, scored a run and drove in two more for the Bearcats as they held off the visiting Bulldogs at home in Monroe. Elijah Moore went 2-3 with a run scored pacing Monroe.

Kingco 3A: Mercer Island 12, Bellevue 2 – Seven runs in the fourth propelled the Islanders to the home win at Island Crest Park on the island. Robert Dreyer and Will Mulfur both homered for the Islanders, and Cole Miller added a triple, walk, two runs scored and two RBI’s to the Mercer cause. Trent Gertz and Waymon Whiting both homered for the Wolverines, with Whiting’s headlining a 2-3 effort.

Kingco 3A: Liberty 13, Sammamish 1 – The Patriots scored early and often in run-ruling the Totems after five at home in Renton. Kai Alberghini led Liberty, with two triples, four runs scored and two RBI’s, while Brandon Toy went 2-2 with a run scored, two walks and three RBI’s.

North Sound: South Whidbey 10, Sultan 0 – It was a day of dominant pitching in the North Sound Conference yesterday, starting here in Langley with a combined no-hitter for Falcon hurlers Brent Batchelor and Ethan Perry, who struck out a total of eight Turks in the win. Batchelor helped his cause on the mound with a strong day at the plate – 3-3 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI.

North Sound: King’s 8, Coupeville 0 – In Seattle, King’s hurler Isaac Hines pitched a one-hitter, striking out 10, as the Knights rolled at home. Tyler Durbin went 2-2 leading King’s, with two walks, two runs scored and two RBI’s, and Hines went 3-3 with a double and four runs scored. Gavin Knoblich was the lone player with a hit for Coupeville.

College scores
Hawaii 9, UC Davis 5: Freshman Aaron Davenport won his second game in as many outings on the hill for the Warriors as they won the opener of a weekend set last night with the visiting Aggies. Davenport, from Duvall and a graduate last June from Cedarcrest HS, pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out two to move to 2-1 on the season for the 12-16 Warriors.

Lewis-Clark State 7, British Columbia 3 (game two, doubleheader): Fifth-year senior Tanner Simpson came out of the bullpen for LCSC and threw 5 2/3 strong innings in relief of starter Justin Hammergren as the Warriors won the nightcap and swept a doubleheader last night with the Canadian visitors at home in Lewiston, ID. Simpson, from North Bend and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, allowed an unearned run on two hits, striking out four, and moves to 3-0 on the season for Lewis-Clark, with a solid 2.37 earned run average. With the penchant for LCSC to have their program’s name called multiple times in the Major League Baseball draft every season, and with left-handed pitching always coveted by pro clubs, the southpaw Simpson may be getting his name on some radars as we approach June, that’s for sure. LCSC won the first game by the way 4-3 on a walk-off in the bottom of the ninth.

Time now for the rest of the action.

Lacrosse: Mount Si girls win fifth in a row, now 7-1
It was a night to remember for Anna Simmons. She scored seven goals – yes, seven goals, and added an assist as well, as Mount Si’s girls’ lacrosse team scored a 16-10 non-league home win last night in Washington Schoolgirls’ Lacrosse Association play over Holy Names at Chief Kanim Middle School in Fall City. The win was their fifth in a row, and they are now 7-1, tied for top spot in the Snoqualmie Conference.

Emme Rezoski had four goals and two assists, and Kendal Forrest also had four goals, helping the Wildcat efforts. Hillary Curd rounded out the scoring with a goal herself and goalie Tessa Lewis made nine saves on 19 shots faced for the win in goal for Mount Si.

The Wildcats are now off until after spring break, and will face Ballard April 17 at Chief Kanim.

Soccer: Brown wins 250th as Mount Si coach as Wildcats blank top-five ranked Camas
In a battle of teams ranked in the top 10 in Washington 4A high school soccer last night, Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team scored three second-half goals and blanked Camas 3-0 last night at home in Snoqualmie. The eighth-ranked Wildcats got goals from Sullivan Smith, Jake Jimenez and Jared Davies as they took care of the fourth-ranked Papermakers to begin a back-to-back set against Greater St. Helens League squads from southwest Washington.

The win was longtime Mount Si head coach Darren Brown’s 250th as coach of the Wildcats.

Mount Si closes out the GSHL back-to-back today taking on Union, the Papermakers’ arch-rivals from Camas. The game is at 1:00 this afternoon at Mount Si’s stadium. We will be there for full coverage.

Softball: Mount Si rained out
Mount Si High School’s scheduled home softball game with Eastlake at the Wildcats’ temporary home away from home in Issaquah was rained out yesterday with no word on when it will be rescheduled. Considering the field arrangements for Mount Si at Issaquah High School, where they are playing their home games this season, there’s a good chance this game could be made up as a doubleheader with the Wolves later this season at Eastlake High School. We’ll keep tabs on what is decided.

There were, however, a couple of games, both up in the Crown Division, that did get in last night as the Northshore schools squared off with one another. Action from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Kingco 4A: Bothell 8, Inglemoor 6 – Katie Fodge homered for Bothell and Morgan Schults went 3-3 with a run scored and two RBI’s as the Cougars scored four unanswered runs over the final two frames to stun the Vikings in round one of the ladies’ spring “Spaghetti Bowl” on the diamond last night in Kenmore. Fodge finished 2-4 with two runs scored and two RBI’s. Sophia Fike doubled, scored twice and drove in two more aiding the Vikings.

Kingco 4A: Woodinville 11, North Creek 10 – This was a wild one last night up in Woodinville as North Creek rallied from a late 7-3 deficit scoring seven runs in the seventh against the usually dominant Falcon ace hurler Rachael Rhinehart, but Woody responded with four in their half of the frame to walk off with the win and allow their senior ace to breathe a bit easier. Brooke Tilson was the heroine for the home side, walking it off on a single scoring Mikaelie Sullivan with the winning run. Both of them had a pair of hits each, including a double apiece, and drove in a combined five runs pacing the Falcons. Reagan Ellis had a hit and three RBI’s leading the Jaguars.
