College scores on this Sunday…..

Good Sunday morning. As we wrap up our holiday weekend, we have some college news this morning. Scores and highlights of Valley collegians in action from yesterday.

Football
Washington 31, Washington State 13: The Apple Cup went to the purple and gold, and a 2013 Mount Si grad played a part in the win. Fall City sophomore Cameron Van Winkle was 4-4 on extra points, and 1-1 on field goals; he kicked one successfully from 18 yards out to pace the Huskies. The Valleyites on the Cougar side of the field, fellow ex-MSHS’ers Sherman Hutcherson and Jake Tweten, did not see action.

WSU’s season ends at 3-9 while the UW advances to a bowl game with an 8-5 record.

Oregon 47, Oregon State 19: The Ducks rolled to the Civil War win in Corvallis, OR, setting them up for a shot likely at the national championship, while OSU’s season came to an end at 5-7 with the loss. Josh Mitchell saw one last start at center for the Beavers in 2014; he is a 2012 Mount Si grad from North Bend.

Minnesota-Duluth 48, Ouachita Baptist 45 (OT): UMD needed extra time to outlast host OBU on the road in Arkadelphia, AR, and advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II playoffs, where they will meet in-state conference foe Minnesota State-Mankato next week in Mankato, MN. Sophomore safety Hunter Malberg, a 2013 MSHS alum from Snoqualmie, made three solo tackles, broke up one pass, and recovered a fumble for UMD in the contest aiding the efforts.

Nevada 49, UNLV 27: The Wolfpack won the in-state rivalry game over the Rebels in Las Vegas last night. Mount Si grads are on both rosters, with Trent Riley seeing action last night for UNLV, while Jimbo Davis did not see any for Nevada. Both are 2013 MSHS grads. UNLV finishes the season at 2-11, while Nevada is eligible for a bowl game at 7-5 on the season. The game also marked the final game as coach for Rebels coach Bobby Hauck, who last Friday announced his resignation, which takes effect tomorrow.

Wesley (DE) 59, MIT 0: Wesley scored four touchdowns in a two minute, ten second span in the first quarter, pretty much putting the NCAA Division III playoff game in Dover, DE, out of reach for the Engineers, who finished the season, their best ever in school history, at 10-1. Sophomore Brian Copeland, from Snoqualmie, started at left tackle once again for MIT, and he got himself a little face time this week.

With all the success that the Engineers had this season, MIT’s team has gotten a lot of national press. Fox Sports 1, the national cable sports TV network, this past week during their sports news show Fox Sports Live, aired a feature piece on the Engineers, which we have for you this morning and Copeland shows up in the piece several times. He is wearing number 74 in uniform, while in his practice outfit he is wearing the long-sleeve blue shirt and red jersey. So without further adieu, here’s a Youtube of that feature. Enjoy.

Linfield 31, Mary Hardin-Baylor 28: Linfield took care of business on the road in Belton, TX, to advance in the NCAA D-III playoffs, where they will meet Widener of Pennsylvania next week on the road in Chester, PA. Sophomore Stephen Nnabue, a 2013 MSHS grad from Snoqualmie, did not see action in the contest for Linfield.

John Carroll 14, Wheaton 12: Wheaton’s season came to an end at 11-1 with an NCAA Division III home playoff loss in Wheaton, IL. Fall City’s Blake Herman, a sophomore, did not see action in the contest for Wheaton.

Applachian State 45, Idaho 28: The Vandals’ season came to an end at 1-10 with the conference road loss in Boone, NC, to the one-time perennial power in the Football Championship Subdivision. Duvall junior Jared Klingenberg, a 2011 Cedarcrest HS grad, saw action in the contest, but recorded no stats of note, for Idaho.

Basketball
Bellevue CC men 60, Shoreline 46: Bellevue scored a win at the Pierce College tournament in Tacoma over their local community college rivals; sophomore Anthony McLaughlin, from North Bend and a 2012 MSHS grad, scored seven points and added nine boards in 29 minutes of action for Bellevue.

Western Washington 92, Northwest women 53: The NCAA Division II Vikings rolled to the home win over the visiting Eagles in the Lynda Goodrich Classic. Freshman Kalee Fowler, from Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, scored three points in eight minutes of action off the bench for Northwest.

Columbia Basin 79, Whatcom CC men 71: The Orcas fell at the Pierce College tournament in Tacoma to the NWAC East Division team. Freshman Jordan Corpus, also a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall, scored five points (on five out of six from the free throw line) in 34 minutes of action, also recording two rebounds and three assists during his action.
