Wildcats fall in key Kingco 3A test
October 2, 2008 · Updated 7:31 PM
Many football fans know that there are three parts to the game: offense, defense and special teams. When one of those parts runs into trouble, it makes it more difficult for a team to win, and for the Mount Si Wildcats last Friday night at Issaquah High School playing the Eagles, that was very much the case. Struggles by Mount Si's special teams proved to be very pivotal in this one, as the Eagles took home a key Kingco 3A victory.
Ryan Tiernan ran back the opening kickoff for a score and several other key plays by special teams helped Issaquah to a 17-6 decision, which initially looked as if it might be a much higher-scoring game.
Tiernan's 90-yard touchdown return for the opening score came just 15 seconds into the contest, but Mount Si did not let that faze them. The Wildcat offense came right back out, and had a big play of their own as Sean Snead ran one in from 52-yards out for a touchdown on the second Mount Si play from scrimmage. However, the point-after attempt was blocked, leaving the Eagles in front 7-6 only a minute in.
