Valley high school football starts out on solid note, with wins by both Mount Si and Cedarcrest, 8-31

Time now for the wraps from Friday high school football.

Mount Si blanks old Seamount foe
If your name had Riley in it, it proved to be a good night for you, that’s for sure. Both Trent Riley and Riley Reed scored touchdowns, helping the Mount Si Wildcats shut down, and shut out, their former Seamount League rival Kennedy Catholic, 30-0, at Highline Stadium.

Trent Riley, a senior wide receiver, continued his strong return to football after missing last season with a knee injury, as he caught a pass from Nick Mitchell and took it 46 yards for the score in the first quarter, and that was just a hint of things to come. Joey Cotto scored a touchdown late in the second quarter on a 39 yard scamper, and between those two touchdowns and a pair of Cameron Vanwinkle field goals, Mount Si went into the locker room up 20-0.

Riley Reed then struck in the third, racing 72 yards for the score, but then was caught doing a little too much celebrating in the end zone for the referees’ liking, and they assessed a penalty as a result. It turned out not to be a big factor, though, as Vanwinkle, with a third field goal, and the Mount Si defense closed the deal and brought home the win.

Mount Si is home next Friday against Issaquah at 7:00 p.m.

Red Wolves score season-opening win
Cedarcrest broke open a tight game in the fourth, outscoring Sammamish 13-0 in that final frame, as the Red Wolves opened the season with a 41-28 win over the Kingco Conference Totems in Bellevue. The game was tied 28-28 after three before Cedarcrest went to work late to take home the road victory. CHS travels to Lake Washington next Friday at 7:00.
