Red Wolves win one, drop one
The Bellevue Wolverines paid a visit to Howard Miller Stadium
Tuesday night, Oct. 5, and gave the Cedarcrest soccer squad a major
time of it. Red Wolf Goalies Erica Burch and Jenny Harder ended up
earning their keep, as the visitors spent a surprising amount of time at
the Cedarcrest end of the field.
However, at the seven-minute mark of overtime, Bellevue scored
on itself, giving the Wolves the 1-0 victory and a 6-1 record. As the
saying goes, "A win is a win."
The local version of the "Clash of Titans" came two nights later,
when the Wolves faced off against 6-1 Newport. The 6-1, Sky
Division-leading Knights were coming off their
first hiccup of the season, a 2-0 loss to Liberty, and they were looking to take
it out on someone.
They succeeded. Newport's Tiffany Walker did most of the
damage, scoring two goals enroute to her team's 4-0 victory over the
Red Wolves. The loss put Cedarcrest at 6-1 for the season, trailing Liberty in
the Valley Division of KingCo 3A but still comfortably ahead of Sammamish.
Mount Si shut out by Issaquah, Bellevue
The Wildcat soccer team had a week of it, dropping games to the
Indians and Wolverines by identical 2-0 scores.
Tuesday evening, Oct. 6, the `Cats hosted their opposite numbers
from Issaquah. The contest was a long and drawn out defensive fight, with
the Islanders scoring their first goal at the 1:46 mark and not scoring again
until 72:24. Unfortunately, Mount Si wasn't able to generate an offense.
Thursday evening Mount Si took a short road trip east for a game
with 5-2 Bellevue. The Wolverines prevailed in the battle of ferocious
woodland critters, downing the Wildcats by a score of 2-0. Mount Si's
Heather Breitenbach did the entire game in goal.
With a 1-7 record in league play, the `Cats hosted Sammamish on
Tuesday night. They travel to Liberty on Thursday to face the Valley
