Happy New Year from the SVSJ….and we start 2015 with a look at some hardwood action

Good morning. A Happy 2015 from us here at the Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal. We have some 2014 business to wrap up here this morning, as we take a look at Mount Si High School’s boys’ basketball tournament action down in Bend, OR, this week. The Wildcats competed in the Les Schwab Oregon Holiday Hoopfest, and fell in two games there.

This past Sunday, Mount Si went down to defeat at the hands of Marist Catholic High School from Eugene, OR, 69-50. Parker Dumas led the way for the Wildcats with 11 points on a solid 5-8 from the floor and a free throw. Danny Tomson scored nine points to pace Mount Si in the efforts.

The Wildcats returned to action on Monday and took on an old Kingco 3A foe in the Liberty Patriots, who were also competing in the tournament. Mount Si suffered a tough 49-47 loss at the hands of Liberty despite a good showing from Jonathan “Jo Jo” Hillel; the senior scored 12 points to lead the Wildcats. Tomson added 10 points while Colton Swain pitched in five points and nine rebounds to aid scarlet and gray. Dumas and Gavin Gorell both contributed eight points apiece to the Mount Si cause.

The Wildcats are back home in the Valley and will be competing in Kingco 4A action Saturday night when they host Skyline. Game time is approximately 8:00 p.m., following the conclusion of the preceding girls’ basketball game between the two schools.

College scoreboard
Simpson-CA 66, William Jessup men 62: Despite four three-pointers from senior Justin Downer, from North Bend, the Warriors suffered a road loss last night to Simpson in Redding, CA. Downer, on the strength of that solid effort from outside, finished with 12 points, a rebound and two assists in 19 minutes of action for WJU. He is a 2010 Mount Si High School grad.
