Friday wrap…..

We’ll get to Mount Si’s football contest, and it was a fun one last night, shortly. First, though, let’s look at everything else on the ledger this morning.

High School: Red Wolves win on Homecoming-Cedarcrest took control of their Homecoming game late, and held on for the win last night in Duvall over Cedar Park Christian, putting them at .500 on the season. More on last night’s great effort in the Everett Herald.

College: Stanford beats Oeegon State-In Pac-12 action down in Corvallis, OR, the Cardinal took care of the Beavers, 42-24, on national TV last night. Senior Josh Mitchell, from North Bend and a 2012 Mount Si HS grad, saw action at center for OSU in the contest.

Soccer-College Women
Sacramento State 1, Northern Arizona 0 (OT): The Big Sky opener for the Hornets was a successful one, as they posted the overtime win at home in northern California. Junior Maggie Pleis, from Carnation and a 2012 Cedarcrest HS grad, started and played 50 minutes for Sacto, with no stats of note.

Arizona 1, Washington 0: The Huskies fell on the road to open Pac-12 play down in Tucson, AZ; junior Miranda Rawlings, from North Bend and a 2013 MSHS alum, saw limited minutes off the bench for the Huskies with no stats of note to report.

Marshall rallies to stun UNCC: The Thundering Herd trailed two sets to one in their home C-USA match last night in Huntington, WV, to the visiting 49’ers, but won the final two sets to take the match in five, shocking Charlotte. Sarah McDonald, a senior from Snoqualmie and 2012 MSHS grad, had 10 kills, five digs, an ace and a block, but it proved not to be enough in the end as the 49’ers fell 25-21, 15-25, 23-25, 25-15, 15-10 to Marshall. UNCC is in Birmingham tomorrow to meet Alabama-Birmingham.

Cross Country
Local fares well in Boston meet: Lipscomb University junior Sally Larson, from Fall City and a graduate of Cedar Park Christian School, placed 49th overall in the women’s 5k race at the Battle of Beantown event in Boston yesterday. Larson finished the race in a time of 17 minutes, 54.5 seconds on the course at Franklin Park in the Massachusetts capital.

Mount Si falls to Eastlake: On Thursday, the Wildcat boys’ golfers dropped to 3-2 on the season with a loss to the Wolves at Sahalee Country Club in Redmond. Eastlake took the match 198-206 (lower score wins) despite a medalist round – his second straight – from junior Jake Brady. Brady carded a 36 to take that top spot, but it was a struggle for some of the other golfers. Jordan Lau carded 40 to pace Mount Si, but many of their top golfers had trouble. Take senior Alex Nelson for example. Nelson fired a 36 on Tuesday in their win over Newport at Mount Si Golf Course, but saw his score balloon to a season-worst 45 against the Wolves. Fellow senior Collin Anderson had an even tougher challenge, going from a solid 39 Tuesday to a 54 Thursday. The struggles from their top players did not help, that’s for sure. Eastlake was led by the 38 from sophomore Tommy McCoy, and two others – freshman Griffin McCauley and sophomore Rich Halbert – posted 39’s to aid the Wolves.

Mount Si is back in action next week.
