Golf: Mount Si star misses chance at national tournament
It was a tough day Friday for MSHS boys’ golf star Alex Nelson at the Junior World state qualifying tournament. Nelson struggled on the back nine and finished with a score of 82, missing the cut for day two action at the event, being held at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course outside of Olympia.

Nelson misses out on earning a berth to the upcoming Junior World national tournament in San Diego.

Soccer: Eastside FC teams with Valley players eliminated from US Youth Soccer regionals
Both Eastside FC girls’ soccer teams featuring Mount Si High School competitors fell in semifinals action yesterday at the US Youth Soccer Region IV championship tournament in Boise, and saw their tournament runs end. The Preston-based 98 Red, with Wildcat Natalie Weidenbach, fell in the 16U semis to a California team, while the Eastside 96 Red, with MSHS alum Karlie Hurley, were knocked out with a loss to a Utah squad.

To the pros:

USL: Los Angeles Galaxy II 4, Tulsa 2 – Fall City’s own Gibson Bardsley scored a goal late in the contest for the Roughnecks, but by then it was all she wrote, as the Galaxy scored three second-half goals to post the win last night in Tulsa, OK. Bardsley converted a penalty kick attempt in the 84th minute for his fourth tally of the season. He also was assessed a yellow card for arguing with an official in the 71st minute after a foul call on a teammate.

Baseball: Brown records hit in minor league baseball game
Mount Si High grad Max Brown, from North Bend, went 1-4 for his Arizona Diamondbacks rookie league team, but they fell in an Arizona Rookie League minor league baseball contest last night, 4-0, to the Oakland Athletics’ rookie league club in Mesa, AZ.

Baseball: Scoreboard
Metro Baseball (Portland) 12, Sweets 14U 1: At the USSSA state tournament in Centralia, Mount Si’s Dustin Dover did the damage for the Sammamish team, hitting a double and driving in the lone Sweets run, but the Portland team’s bats were on fire all day as they handed the Sweets their 10th loss of the season.

Baden Baseball 18U 11, RIPS Brewers 1: MSHS’ Alden Huschle shut down the RIPS bats for the Seattle-based Baden side on the mound, pitching six innings of two-hit shutout baseball, striking out seven and earning the win in the game in Edmonds. Cedarcrest HS grad Andrew Willmon also competed for Baden and went 0-1 at the plate.

Washington Athletics 18U 8, Kirkland Merchants 6: A 3-3 day from MSHS’ Reid Lutz, which included a double, run scored and RBI, lifted the Sammamish-based A’s over their Eastside rivals from Kirkland in a game at the Palouse Summer Series yesterday in Colfax.

Boys of Summer 16U 13, Liberty (Hillsboro, OR) 3: Bellevue-based Boys continues to dominate the Portland competition at their weekend tournament in Renton, once again rolling to a win yesterday, and once again, Cedarcrest’s Riley Mallot was a big factor for BoS. He went 2-3, scoring a run and driving in two more, but his fellow Valleyites also helped out. Fellow Red Wolve Kyle Lupo hit a triple, walked twice and scored twice, and MSHS’ Justin Lutz homered as part of a 2-2 day, scoring a run and driving in two more. The solo shot came in the bottom of the fifth for Lutz. Fellow Wildcat Jake Brady was 0-1, but also drove in a run for Boys.

Washington Athletics 16U 9, En Fuego 8: The Sammamish-based A’s outlasted the Burien-based En Fuego at Kennedy High School. MSHS’ Carson Corra went 1-4 with a run scored and RBI for the Athletics, and fellow Wildcat Steven Watters, too, went 1-4 with an RBI. Mount Si’s Nick McAlister hung tough despite struggles on the mound; he allowed all eight EF runs, four earned, on six hits and six walks, striking out five, in 5 2/3 innings of work. McAlister earned a no-decision.

FCA 17, Washington Athletics 14U 8: A 2-4 effort from future MSHS player Conner Baxter, in which he scored twice, was not enough for the Sammamish-based A’s in their loss to the Redmond team in Bellevue last night.

Bandits 15U, Washington Athletics 16U 0: Watters (0-1, two walks) and McAlister (0-1, walk) saw action for the A’s in their loss last night to the 15U team in Burien.
