A weekend wrap for you on a Monday……

Good Monday morning. Starting off the new week with some diamond cuts for you. A note and that is with the weather expected to be quite warm today, rivers and lakes in our area will be very tempting, so be safe if you head out. Follow all the proper water safety and COVID-19 regulations and enjoy yourselves out on the water today. We do not want a repeat for Mount Si or Cedarcrest High Schools’ students today of what Liberty High School’s student body in Renton recently endured – losing one of their own in a water accident on an area river, so be safe out there everyone.

With that, time for the cuts on a Monday. Also, if you have comments about our commentary yesterday – and we’ve had a couple already – you know what to do. Send us an email, reply to that post, or shoot us a Tweet on our Twitter page @snovalleysports. We want a good conversation as we feel there’s fair points to be made on both sides of the issue.

The cuts start with the ladies and some softball. Scores and highlights from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Washington Acers 14U Quinney 3, Avengers 0: It was a long day for the Auburn-based Acers yesterday over in Pendleton, OR, but it proved to be a very successful one. It started out with this shutout win despite only collecting three hits in the entire contest. Mount Si High School head volleyball coach Bonnie Foote’s daughter Isabelle played for the Acers in the contest, recording a walk.

Washington Shock 16U 9, Mizuno Maniacs 2: The Shock also made their way over to Pendleton and opened their Sunday play with a blowout win. Mount Si’s Willow Westbrook was 1-1 with a run scored pacing the Snohomish-based Shock.

Northwest Lady Bandits 18U Pinder 8, Othello Bombers 2: The Bandits busted it open in the second inning, scoring seven runs to break a 1-1 tie after one and cruise to the win over the eastern Washington squad over at a tournament in Post Falls, ID. Mount Si’s Ginger Harris was 1-3 with a run scored pacing the Bandits.

Washington Acers 14U Quinney 3, Purple Monarch 2: Caitlin Quinney’s walk-off single scoring teammate Maddie Repp lifted the Acers, who were down 2-0 into the fifth before the orange and green (the Acers’ team colors) roared back from behind to move into the tournament finals last night down in eastern Oregon. Isabelle Foote was 0-1, but reached on an error and started the comeback in the fifth scoring a run.

Northwest Speed 18U 6, Washington Shock 16U 4: The Speed held off the Shock knocking the Snohomish squad out of the weekend event in Oregon. Westbrook was 1-3 with a run scored pacing WAS.

Northwest Lady Bandits 18U Pinder 11, Washington Synergy 1: Harris did not play for the Bandits in this one, but no matter as NWLB poured it on early and often against the Des Moines-based team to take the weekend tournament crown over in Post Falls. Haley Brown was 2-2 with a walk, three runs scored and an RBI pacing the Bandits.

Washington Acers 14U Quinney 7, Snohomish Shock 3: No Isabelle in this one for the Acers, but we’re sure she and her mom, along with everyone else in the Acers delegation who made the trip down to Umatilla County, celebrated a tournament title last night, scoring all seven of their runs in the fourth to bounce back from an early 3-0 hole to secure the win. Ava Putter was 2-3 with a double, run scored and RBI pacing the victors.

Northwest Lady Bandits 18U Pinder 3, Port Angeles 3: The Bandits scored three times in the final frame to rebound from a 3-0 hole against the girls from the Olympic Peninsula and secure a draw in their opener yesterday over in Post Falls. No Harris for the Kirkland-based Bandits in this one but Malia Pinder, she of North Creek High School in Bothell, went 2-2 with a run scored pacing NWLB.

Baseball: Tough loss on road for Pios
The Western Nebraska Pioneers dropped the rubber match of their weekend set with the Souris Valley Sabre Dogs, falling to the North Dakota-based team 6-5 yesterday afternoon at Corbett Field in Minot, ND, in an Expedition League game. North Bend’s Spencer Marenco went 0-5, and the 2019 Mount Si HS grad, now playing for Yakima Valley CC, saw his batting average drop below .300 for the first time in about three weeks, now at .297, with the performance.

The Pios, like the entire six-team league, are off today, in transit back to Scottsbluff, NE, where they will open a home series tomorrow with the in-state Nebraska rival Hastings Sodbusters. It’s a 5:30 first pitch our time tomorrow night and you can catch it on TuneIn, search KOZY-FM.

We have some youth scores for you to start the new week. Scores and highlights from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Michael’s Toyota Bears 18U 14, Portland Baseball Club 16U 0: Mount Si High School senior-to-be Andrew Edson is bound as you all know to Washington State University on a football scholarship in the fall of 2021. Well, WSU as you all know has a solid Division I baseball program and he plays baseball, too. Plays it just as well as he does football and he showed why yesterday, going 4-4 and coming a homer short of hitting for the cycle, scoring two runs and driving in four more as the Bears cruised to the win to close out their weekend down in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. A couple of other Mount Si players competed in the contest for the Bears; among those was Ryan Gerlitz, who went 0-1, but walked twice and scored a run.

Bellevue Dragons Elite 15U 11, Bellevue Dragons Elite 16U 1: The Dragons’ squads competed in an intrasquad scrimmage in Redmond yesterday with the 15’s rolling to the win. Mount Si’s Brady Hossfeld and Chris Jarocki went a combined 0-5 with a walk for the 16’s as they were held to just two hits, with the defense committing eight errors that did not help things at all for that squad.

Redmond Dudes 15U 16, Eastside Huskies 15U 10 (8): There was also a scrimmage at Sammamish High School with the Dudes taking the slugfest in extras. Mount Si players were playing for both teams. Isaac Kreidel-Reimer led the Huskies, going 3-4 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI’s, while Sam Apostol was 0-3 with a walk and run scored. He also pitched for EH, allowing two runs in a solid four innings of relief on five hits, walking two, striking out four and receiving no decision. For the Dudes, Noah Prasad went 0-1.
