In the hunt: Mount Si football clenches first-round state chance, delivers in victory Friday against Mercer
Mount Si continued its run toward greatness this season with a 38-7 win Friday, Oct. 19, on the road at Mercer Island.
The win helps the Wildcats secure a first-round home game on Friday, Nov. 2, in the Washington State Championships round of 32.
While the Wildcat defense kept Mercer under pressure for the entire game, Mount Si pushed to a lead early, as junior linebacker Evan Johnson snagged an Islander pass early in the first quarter. The score climbed, as quarterback Nick Mitchell kept up his aerial attack, connecting with Trent Riley, twice, and Tyler Button in the second quarter.
Kicker Cameron Van Winkle kicked a 27-yard field goal and narrowly missed a 53-yard attempt. Van Winkle is in the hunt for a 50-yard kick for his senior season.
