Thursday news items….

Very light morning this morning, so here’s the news:

-The Chaffey U18 select baseball team continued their winning ways in Nevada yesterday, applying consistent pressure on their opponents, from Petaluma, CA, in an 11-3 win. Chaffey scored runs in all but one inning as all but one player had hits in the contest. Among the big stories for the Eastside team was MSHS senior-to-be Carson Breshears, who had two hits, including a triple, scored two runs and drove in a third. Pitcher Joe Boyce, a former Wildcat, was the beneficiary of all the run support; the Chaffey starter pitched five solid innings, giving up three runs, all earned, on three hits, striking out two.

-In soccer, a couple of items. First, the Issaquah SC women’s semi-pro team, which features Mount Si grad Jessica Oliver, is on a tear again this season, just like they were last season. The team, called the “Seattle Reign FC Reserves”, is undefeated going into the late stages of the regular season with six wins and one tie in seven games played. Oliver has one goal on the season thus far, and has seen playing time in most of the games. She will be a senior at Northwest University in Kirkland this fall.

Also, in men’s pro soccer, the United Soccer Leagues’ Pro Dayton (OH) Dutch Lions are 6-2-4 after their weekend western swing last weekend. Dayton scored a goal in the final seconds of the contest to win their game in California last Sunday over Los Angeles, and the man who assisted on that goal was none other than Fall City’s own Gibson Bardsley. The Mount Si grad and former WWU star in addition to that assist has five goals on the season, but has scored none since we last mentioned this for you a couple of weeks ago. He currently leads the Dayton team in scoring, and is tied for 11th in the league in overall scoring.
