From the pitch and the diamond this morning….happy Labor Day everyone

Good Monday morning. Happy Labor Day. We’ll have a Mount Si girls’ soccer preview coming up, but we have some scores from the college women’s pitch first, along with a few from the youth softball front as well.

Women’s Soccer
Before we get to yesterday’s action, we want to mention another Mount Si grad made her college women’s soccer debut over this holiday weekend.

It happened last Friday night down in Thousand Oaks, CA. Redlands-CA freshman Hailey Kuykendall, a 2014 Mount Si HS grad from Snoqualmie, came off the bench for the Bulldogs in their season-opening 6-1 blowout of Willamette of Oregon and played 29 minutes, with no stats of note. With that opportunity, Kuykendall became the third member of Mount Si’s women’s soccer Class of 2014 to make her college debut, joining St. Peter’s goalie Lauren Solene and Whitworth’s Leah Corra. Still on deck is Azusa Pacific’s Kelsey Lindor; their season has not started.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted on how Kuykendall does throughout the season. We should mention Redlands played a game yesterday, falling at home to the University of Chicago; the Valleyite did not play in that contest.

Now to yesterday’s action.

Sacred Heart 4, St. Peter’s 0: Fall City’s Solene got the start in goal for StP in the contest and allowed three goals on nine shots in 51 minutes of action as StP fell on the road in Connecticut. Solene’s record dropped to 0-2 with the loss.

St. Mary’s-CA 4, Oregon State 2: In Corvallis, OR, OSU junior Gwen Bieck, from Duvall and a 2012 Cedarcrest HS grad, started for the Beavers and worked the full 90 on defense with no stats of note, as OSU fell to the Gaels in a nationally-televised contest.

Washington 1, Pitt 0: In the Steel City, Pittsburgh, PA, the Huskies blanked the host Panthers; sophomore Miranda Rawlings, a 2013 MSHS grad from North Bend, played limited minutes off the bench late for the UW with no stats of note.

San Jose State 1, Sacramento State 0: In San Jose, the host Spartans blanked the visiting Hornets. Both Cedarcrest High School grads on the Sacto side started – with junior McKenna Swanson logging 75 minutes with no stats and sophomore Maggie Pleis recording 54 minutes with one shot that did not reach goal. Swanson is from Duvall while Pleis is from Carnation, and both are members of CHS’ class of 2012.

Puget Sound 2, Northwest 1: In Tacoma, the Loggers scored the win over their NAIA foes from Kirkland. Spokane’s Lauren Hamliton, a UPS senior who has family in the Valley, came off the bench and worked 44 minutes for the Loggers with no stats of note.

Softball
Absolute Blast ’00 U14 9, Oregon Panthers U16 4: Cedarcrest High School’s freshman duo of Cassidy Derieg and Elaine Townley, both of whom made a huge impact for the Blast on Saturday, did so again in this one yesterday, helping the Woodinville-based team roll to a blowout win. Derieg tripled, scored a run, and threw two shutout innings of relief, only allowing one hit, while striking out one, and Townley doubled as part of a 2-2 effort which saw her score a run and drive another one in. Mount Si freshman Lexi Wetherbee also did her part, with a pair of hits, a run scored and run batted in to pace the Blast.

Washington Speed 18’s Gold 8, NW Ladysharks U16 Hagen 3: Mount Si junior Rose Vogt had a hit and scored a run for the Kirkland-based ‘Sharks as they fell to the U18 team.

Absolute Blast ’00 4, NW Explosion 3: Townley got the win in the circle for the Blast, allowing three unearned runs on six hits in 3 2/3 innings, striking out four. The three Valleyites –Townley, Derieg and Wetherbee – went a combined 0-5 at the plate, but Wetherbee reached base on a walk and scored a run.

NW Ladysharks Hagen 4, Washington Angels 18’s 3: Vogt was hitless in one at-bat, but did reach base on a walk, scored a run and drove in another to pace the ‘Sharks to the win over the Tri-Cities team.
