Saturday scores from volleyball and the gridiron featuring local athletes…..

Good Sunday morning. Busy morning. We start our look at last night’s college action for Valleyites with some football.

Eastern Washington 54, Northern Colorado 21: The Eagles exploded in the second quarter and went into halftime up 40-0 on the visitors from Greeley, CO, then cruised to a win on Homecoming at home on the red turf in Cheney yesterday over the Bears. Manning the offensive line as always for Eastern in this one was senior Chris Schlicting, from North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad. Could the Valley continue to have a presence, though, on the Eagles after Schlicting graduates? It’s possible. Current MSHS football senior Gale Kamp took a visit over to Eastern yesterday and tweeted out a photo of him at the game, which we have for you on our Twitter feed. He’s being recruited by a number of schools, so another good program for him to look at, that’s for sure.

Washington 51, Arizona 27: Yes, Jack Westover only caught two passes for seven yards in this one. But one of those passes, a three-yard catch from QB Jacob Eason in the third quarter, became the 2018 Mount Si HS grad’s first college touchdown, helping the Huskies spark a second-half surge to down the Arizona ‘Cats on their turf down in Tucson, AZ, last night. Westover is from North Bend. We’ll try to find some video of this for you and have it up later. Good stuff.

Central Washington 44, Azusa Pacific 6: It was a good night for senior Jonathan “JoJo” Hillel last night as he helped Central’s Cats take Homecoming over the visiting Cougars in front of almost 6,000 over in Ellensburg last night. Hillel, from North Bend and a 2015 MSHS grad, caught four passes for 51 yards, and also threw a pass in the game 23 yards for a CWU touchdown in the third quarter to teammate James Marsh. Good stuff for Central’s fifth-year jack of all trades Mr. Hillel.

George Fox 37, Pacific Lutheran 14: The Bruins rolled at home over the visiting Lutes down in Newberg, OR, yesterday. Junior Alex Rendon, from Snoqualmie and a 2017 MSHS’er, caught six passes for 65 yards pacing PLU’s receiving attack.

Lake Erie 38, Alderson Broaddus 24: The Storm picked up their first win of the season, beating the winless AB squad on their turf in Philippi, WV. Junior Eric Daniels caught one pass for 10 yards for LEC; he is a 2017 MSHS’er from North Bend.

Springfield 20, U.S. Coast Guard Academy 14: The boys from Massachusetts held off the host USCGA squad in New London, CT, yesterday. Freshman Brennan Dalgleish saw action with no stats reported for USCGA; he is from Snoqualmie and a 2018 MSHS’er.

Dartmouth 42, Yale 10: In a battle of unbeatens in the Ivy League yesterday at Hanover, NH, the Big Green rolled to the win on Homecoming, giving their coach, Buddy Teevens, his 100th win at the school. Aiding in the efforts was one Jonny Barrett; the freshman from Snoqualmie and 2019 MSHS grad saw action in the game for Dartmouth with no stats of note reported.

Pomona-Pitzer 49, LaVerne 14: The Sagehens rolled to an easy win at home last night over their Southern California Athletic Conference (NCAA Division III) rivals in Pomona, CA. Lineman Michael Collins, from Snoqualmie and a 2018 MSHS’er, saw action in the game for Pomona with no stats of note reported.

Utah 52, Oregon State 7: The Utes went into Corvallis, OR, last night and hammered the host Beavers. Sophomore Jesiah Irish, he of North Bend and a 2018 MSHS’er, saw action in the game for OSU with no stats of note reported.

Gustavus Adolphus 35, Concordia-MN 28: Visiting G-A stunned the host Cobbers in Moorhead, MN, yesterday, connecting on a 78-yard hail mary with 14 seconds left to steal victory from the jaws of near-defeat. Concordia took the lead shortly before that big play with a touchdown of their own, only to see the visitors storm back and get the “W”. Sophomore Collin Fleisch, from Fall City and a 2017 MSHS’er, saw action in the game for Concordia with no stats of note reported.

Also some volleyball:

Northwest U. def. Warner Pacific 25-10, 25-13, 25-14: The Eagles made quick work of the struggling Knights at home in Kirkland last night. Junior Courteney Carr, from Snoqualmie and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, had 15 assists and four digs pacing NU.

George Fox def. Whitman 26-24, 22-25, 25-10, 25-14: Whitman could not maintain the energy off their win Friday night, falling at home in Walla Walla last night to the visiting Bruins. North Bend’s Emma Anderson had 27 assists, four kills and nine digs pacing the Blues. She is a 2018 Mount Si HS grad.

BYU def. Santa Clara 25-16, 25-12, 25-10: The Cougars at home in Provo, UT, dominated in a sweep of the visiting Broncos. Senior Anna McCreadie, from North Bend and a 2015 MSHS grad, had one kill in limited action for SC in this one.
