News notes on the big game Saturday…..

Good Wednesday morning. A light Wednesday on this day before Thanksgiving.

A couple of items regarding the Mount Si football game on Saturday.

-The WIAA Network will be webstreaming the game live for those of you unable to make the trip down. ELI Sports, who will be producing the broadcast, informed the SVSJ via Twitter last night that they will be streaming the game live along with all of the other semifinal games – including the Bothell-Woodinville game – as well. To access the stream, go to this website and sign up. You’ll need to pay $10 to access the stream, but the fee is good for a month of action and this could also include a state title game should Mount Si win on Saturday.

-Travel plans for Mount Si are being finalized and are expected to be finalized later today. They are expected to leave Friday morning, practice at a location in southwest Washington on the way down to Vancouver, then spend the night at a hotel across the Columbia River in Portland, about a 20-minute trip from McKenzie Stadium. The school is also finalizing a community send-off similar to the one that took place this past Saturday prior to their departure to Lake Stevens for the quarterfinal game. This sendoff is expected to start at around 9:30am, with the busses expected to leave around 10. It will take place at the same location last weekend’s event took place at – on Wildcat (Meadowbrook) Way in front of the school in Snoqualmie. This past weekend’s sendoff attracted around 100 fans, it’s hoped many more, especially with it being a holiday Friday, will be able to participate this time around. The booster club is telling us that the busses, which are likely to be charters as opposed to Snoqualmie Valley school busses, which were used for the trip up to Lake Stevens, will be escorted out of the campus area by Snoqualmie fire and police vehicles, similar to what happened this past weekend but more similar to the sendoffs Mount Si’s boys’ hoopsters had back in March for their state tournament games in the Tacoma Dome.

-Also, we mentioned this on Twitter yesterday, but the school sent out information about the game and stadium procedures on Saturday.

Gates to the stadium will open at 12 noon. Tickets are $11 for adults and $8 for students, and you can purchase those online at a link we have for you in our story from Monday with the travel information. Tickets should however be available when you get down there to the stadium if you want to pay in cash. The stadium also has a bag policy in effect. You are permitted to bring a clear plastic bag (12″x 6″x 12″ maximum), small clutch purse, diaper bag (if you have a small child with you), binocular case (with binoculars) or a clear plastic freezer bag not exceeding one gallon size. Backpacks, ice chests, glass and plastic bottles, and outside food and drink are not permitted. A concession should be on site at the stadium and as we mentioned on Monday, there’s a ton of different food options available for you on Mill Plain Blvd. south of the stadium if you want to grab some lunch before going to the game.
