Red Wolves whomp Saints, down Spartans

On a steamy, buggy night Tuesday, Sept. 21, at Howard Miller Field

in Carnation, the Cedarcrest girls soccer team took early control of their

match with Interlake and breezed to a 6-0 victory. What kind of night was it?

Red Wolf goal keeper Jenny Harder rarely touched the ball, as her

teammates regularly kept it in play at the Spartans' end of the field.

Junior Lindsay Peterson scored the first Cedarcrest goal at 2:50.

The Wolves' tough, mobile defense then proceeded to swarm all over the

overmatched Interlake squad. Goals two through six followed at 28:54,

when senior Sarah Young put one in the net with an assist from Dana Elwell;

at 59:00, by Elwell, who followed up with a successful penalty kick; by

senior Heather Sherfy at 62:00; and finally, a second shot by Peterson

at 78:00.

The victory put the Wolves at 2-1 in league and ready for a face off

with Skyline the following Thursday night. That match - at the Spartan's

home field - turned out to be a tad closer.

Cedarcrest scored the winning goal - the only one of the 1-0 victory

- at the 15-minute mark, when Sherfy took a pass from Peterson and

rocketed the ball past Spartan goalie Sarah Alverez. The Wolves and

Spartans then settled into an evening of back and forth, with the visitors

ultimately prevailing. Erica Burch and Harder split time in the net for Cedarcrest.

With a 3-1 KingCo 3A record and second place in the Valley

Division, the Wolves hosted Sammamish Tuesday night, Sept. 28. They travel

to Issaquah this Thursday evening.

Wildcats fall to Totems, Pats

The Mount Si Wildcats had a rough week of it, dropping games

to both Sammamish and Liberty.

On Tuesday night, Sept. 21, the `Cats fell to the Totems by a score

of 3-0. The visitors gave away the first point at the 24:30 mark when they

put the ball in their own goal off an errant head shot; that's all the

Sammamish squad needed for the night, but they added two more scores at 62:00

and 77:30 for good measure. Amber Schneider did the entire 80 minutes

in the goal for Mount Si.

In JV play, Mount Si dumped the Totems by a score of 3-0, with

goals by Nikola Skinner, Kelsie Owen and Nicole Howard off assists by

Howard, Carrie Frantz and Elise Ellison, respectively. In the C-level game,

the `Cats thoroughly dominated Sammamish by a score of 9-1.

Rachael Alexander and Jessie Lentgis each punched in two goals, while

Rebecca Hartwell, Katy Young, Nicole Velota, Angie Boyd and Megan Wright

scored single points. The defense played strong and helped keep the Totems

off goal keepers Lisa Turner and Stephanie Riley.

The Wildcat varsity returned to the field of combat last Thursday

night, fighting the good fight but ultimately loosing to visiting Liberty by a

score of 6-2. The Patriots' Chelsea Beck knocked in two unassisted goals at

the 2:30 and 5-minute marks before Heather Breitenbach answered with

a Wildcat score, at 15:00.

The Pats then pumped in three more, with Lindsay Ratcliff

scoring Mount Si's second goal at 60:00. Liberty's final goal came six

minutes later off a pass from Sabrina Oldham to Stephanie Ernst.

The JV game had similar results, with the Patriots coming out on top

3-0. The C-Cats played a tough one with the Redmond Mustangs, giving up

one goal in the final ten minutes. Allison Moorehead then brought the ball

the length of the field before passing off to Hartwell for Mount Si's only

score. The game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The Wildcats journeyed to Newport on Tuesday night, Sept. 28,

to face the Sky Division-leading Knights, and follow with a Thursday

evening home meet with Mercer Island. The JV contest commences at 5:30

p.m., with the varsity taking the field at 7:30.
