Time for our Sunday news notes. We’ll have action from the diamond coming up.

Mount Si girls’ golf falls in close one in clash for league title
Well, we told you that Mount Si and Mercer Island were destined for a clash last Thursday, with the winner ending up as Kingco champions this spring in girls’ golf. And the match ended up being as advertised, with the two teams finishing within five strokes of one another. Unfortunately for Mount Si, despite the efforts of their best golfers, including their senior star, they were the ones on the short end of the stick.

MI held off a strong challenge from the Wildcats, winning the match at Jefferson Park Golf Course in Seattle, 230-235 (lower score wins). And this was despite Mount Si’s Danielle Burns carding her second straight medalist round, with another 39 (she fired a 39 in the match last Tuesday against Bellevue, also winning the medalist honors). Tabitha Dorn scored a 40 to take second, and Caitlin Maralack took third overall, with a score of 43. MI was led by the 44’s of both Giovanna Orecchio and Molly White, and also had good scores from Jane Peterson (46) and both Carsen Harkins and Emma Young (48’s).

Mount Si tomorrow is at Liberty to close the regular season. The Kingco tournament is next Monday in Redmond.

Wildcat boys’ soccer gets set for its biggest week since 2010
This upcoming week is a pretty big week for the Mount Si boys’ soccer team. Perhaps their biggest week since their run to state in 2010, and it was all set up with a nice 3-2 win last Friday at Bellevue combined with a scoreless draw between Liberty and Mercer Island, who are battling Mount Si in the league standings at the moment.

Alex Censullo scored twice to lead the Wildcats, whose coach expects nothing less than the best from his players this week. “Every game here on out is a tough match as teams are jockeying for playoff spots,” said Mount Si coach Darren Brown in comments posted on the team website. ”We have done this all year and have faced adversity a handful of times. We are experienced when it comes to this and know how to battle through it.”

And they will need every ounce of that experience, as they meet both the Patriots and Islanders this week. MI is first up Tuesday, followed by Senior Night Thursday against Liberty. If Mount Si wins out on home turf this week, they win their first Kingco title since 2010 and go straight to state. Both games begin at 7:30 inside Mount Si’s stadium.
