On the pitch last night……

It was a dramatic night of high school playoff soccer as Valley teens fought to the bitter end, with different results depending on which school you were cheering for.

Mount Si girls’ soccer season ends in heartbreaker
The Wildcats and Interlake Saints battled to the bitter end of their Kingco 3A playoff game – 90 full minutes – ending in a scoreless tie, before the Saints outlasted Mount Si 3-2 in a penalty kick shootoutat Mercer Island High School to move on to the next round, and end the Wildcats’ season at 10-4-2.

“I am proud of (the team) and what we achieved this year. We went 4-3 in the first half and 5-0-2 in the second half of the season,” said Mount Si coach Darren Brown in comments on the team website. (They) got better as the season went on. PK shootouts can go any direction and there has to be an ending. The stars were just not aligned for us tonight.”

Mount Si graduates four seniors, among them UNLV-bound Miranda Rawlings, who leaves as the best single-season scorer in Wildcat girls’ soccer history, with 13 goals and 10 assists.

Cedarcrest stays alive in dramatic fashion
A goal with a minute left in regulation broke a 1-1 tie and lifted the Red Wolves into the next round of the playoffs with a win over Bellingham at Cedarcrest High School. The Bellingham Herald has more on the game, including comments from the visiting coach.

And we also have a college playoff result for you.

MSOE soccer season over
