Wildcat boys soccer wins again, 3-30

Mount Si’s boys’ soccer team upped its’ Kingco 3A record to 4-0 last night with a come-from-behind road win at Juanita.

Erik Stai and Aaron Baumgardner scored first-half goals after the Rebels scored one just minutes in to lift the Wildcats to the 2-1 victory. Mount Si’s overall record is 5-0-1 with last night’s result.

Wildcat coach Darren Brown was pleased. “It took us 30 minutes to settle in tonight but, we will use this going forward as a lesson to match our style of play. Juanita had a strong work ethic and you have to give them credit for the pressure they created,” Brown said in comments on the team website. “I think going from LW to Juanita was two totally different speeds of play and we can point to that for an excuse but, we need to let teams adjust to our athleticism instead of mirroring the opposition.”

Alex Censullo added assists on both goals as Mount Si won despite losing senior Dane Aldrich during the game; Aldrich, who has been battling a pulled muscle in his leg, re-aggravated that injury and could not complete the game. His status for this upcoming week is not known.

Mount Si hosts Interlake Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. then heads out on the road next Friday for a game at Bellevue.
