News on this Sunday…..

Good Sunday morning, hopefully you all made it through yesterday’s storm which rolled through the Valley, knocking power out (including to your editor) for a time, and causing some branches to fall to the ground around the area.

Here’s this morning’s news from the SVSJ.

Dutch Lions get first win of season behind Valley native
From soccer, the United Soccer Leagues’ Dayton Dutch Lions men’s team finally got their first win of the season last night, and it was in emphatic fashion. Former Mount Si and Western Washington star Gibson Bardsley, from Fall City, scored a goal and helped lead the Dutch Lions to a 4-0 win over the Wilimington (NC) Hammerheads in front of just over 500 fans at Bellbrook High School in Dayton, OH. Bardsley played a total of 78 minutes in the contest.

Continued mixed results for Valley volleyball players in SoCal
It continues to be a mixed bag of results for Bellevue-based High Velocity club girls’ volleyball and their four Valley players competing down at the Summer Soiree in Anaheim.

The HV U16 team, with Mount Si’s Sydney Leonard and Cedarcrest’s Hanna Halverson, went 2-1 yesterday in pool play on top of a strong 2-1 start Friday. HV beat teams from California and Hawaii in yesterday’s action. Meanwhile, the U15’s, with CHS’ Randi Roetscioender, and U14’s, with Chief Kanim MS’s Danielle Seaman, both struggled, with one win between the two of them yesterday, and that was in the nightcap for the U15 team, over a team from Temecula, CA.

More action continues today.

Mount Si, Cedarcrest girls’ basketball teams take on top high school teams from around Northwest
Both Mount Si and Cedarcrest girls’ basketball teams are this weekend down in Oregon City, at a major tournament for high school summer teams.

The Wildcats and Red Wolves are participating in the End of the Trail River City Classic, featuring teams from all over Washington and Oregon. Mount Si’s varsity team has finished play in the event, with a 1-3 record. The Wildcats won their first game Friday night, over Kennewick’s Kamiakin, then fell in their next three games and got knocked out of the tournament. The JV team is still in the hunt, though, with a game this morning against Southridge Red from Beaverton, OR. The Wildcat JVs beat Southridge White Friday night, then lost twice yesterday to make it into today’s game. Cedarcrest is still in the tournament, too, with a game this morning against either a team from Salem, OR, or Northwest District rival Mount Baker. The Red Wolves, too, opened with a win Friday night, over Milwaukie, OR, then fell twice yesterday, to Inglemoor and Beaverton (OR).

From the baseball diamond
One score of note and that is from the SPL U18’s. The Seattle Stars last night won a thriller over Narrows Baseball 1-0 at Edmonds CC. The three Stars players from Cedarcrest – Tanner Marty, Tyler Reeves and Nick Gagner – did not play in the contest.

More news later hopefully.
