Gridiron recap

Good morning. Back after being out yesterday due to illness so here we go. We’re going to start with football, and wrap up both the high school and college action. We’ll start with the high schools from this past Friday.

High School
Cedarcrest 27, Cedar Park Christian 7: The Red Wolves moved to 2-2 with the road win over the Cascade Conference newcomers coached by former CHS assistant Bill Marsh. No stats were available from the contest. The Red Wolves return home this coming Friday for Homecoming, and they will be meeting Lakewood. Game time is at 7:00 at Cedarcrest High School.

Bothell 43, Mount Si 13: It was the Sam McPherson show for the Cougars, as the senior running back dazzled the Bothell homecoming crowd with five touchdowns on the night, that’s right, five, to lead the Cougars to the win. Wildcat quarterback Jonathan “Jo Jo” Hillel threw for a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but by then, it was too late as the Cougars had built up a 31-0 halftime lead and cruised to the win to drop Mount Si to 2-2 on the season. The Wildcats are home this coming Friday to meet Inglemoor at 7:00 at MSHS.

Now to the college action from yesterday.

College scoreboard
Stanford 20, Washington 13: Huskies sophomore kicker Cameron Van Winkle, from Fall City and a 2013 Mount Si High School grad, showed off his stuff in front of a national television audience yesterday, as the game was being broadcast on FOX. He was 1-1 on point after scores and also kicked off three times for 176 yards, almost 60 yards a kick.

Humboldt State 34, Western Oregon 16: Junior linebacker Taylor Mitchell, from North Bend and a 2011 Mount Si HS grad, had three tackles, two solos, and one for loss, and recorded the lone Humboldt interception on the day as the ‘Jacks rolled to the home win in Arcata, CA. Fellow Wildcat alum Jarrett Adams, a senior from Snoqualmie, also saw action, but recorded no stats of note.
