Wildcats win home soccer opener

The Mount Si Wildcat varsity soccer team hosted their cross-valley

rival Cedarcrest Red Wolves last Friday night in what was best described as

a fast-paced offensive game. In the first half, the ball moved up and down

the field many times with Kasey Robinson for Mount Si and the goalie

for Cedarcrest notching several saves each. But with less than a minute

left in the first period, the Red Wolves' Tommy Felt blasted a goal,

unassisted, to give Cedarcrest a 1-0 lead at halftime.

In the second half the wind appeared to wisp out of the Red

Wolves' sails as the ball remained in the Red Wolves' end most of the half.

Finally, Mount Si started putting some offense together midway through the

second period.

With 15:26 left on the clock for the game, Mount Si's Roger

Paterson punched in a goal wide right for a score. The Wildcats maintained

their offensive pressure and with 13:16 left in the game, Jed McDaniels broke

free up the right side of the field. As the defenders neared, he passed the

ball to a waiting Seth Holub who maneuvered and took the shot for the

team's second goal. The Red Wolves never recovered as the clock ticked away.

This week Mount Si takes on Liberty on Friday, at Liberty. Then

they're off to Newport to take on the Knights next Tuesday.
