Red Wolves lose to Liberty, defeat Wildcats
Both Cedarcrest and Mount Si had their league soccer openers on
Tuesday, Sept. 14.
For the Red Wolves, the week provided an excellent opportunity to
get off to a strong start for second-year coach Kerrie Gould. Last year's
team went 1-12 in KingCo 3A play, however - and despite the loss of
seniors Tiffany Biesidzinski and Holly Ellis - this year's squad expects to move up.
Unfortunately, it didn't happen that Tuesday night. Liberty
downed the Wolves by a score of 4-0, shelling Cedarcrest goal keepers Erica
Burch and Jenny Harder with a total of 29 shots. At the other end of the
field, Patriot goalie Jamie Corwin recorded seven saves.
The team's prospects brightened last Thursday when it traveled up
Valley to meet arch-rival Mount Si and came away with a 2-0 victory.
Cassie Pepper and Heather Sherfey did the honors, scoring late in the second
period with assists by Libbye Haddon. The Wolves' Burch and Harder
again split the time in the nets, while Mount Si's Amber Schneider did the
entire game as the Wildcats' goal keeper.
Armed with a 1-1 record, Cedarcrest returned to the field
this past Tuesday night for a game with the visiting squad from Overlake
High School. Tonight, Sept. 23, the Wolves travel to Skyline.
Wildcats down Saints, fall to Valley rivals
Last year Mount Si's Bruce Caldwell directed his team to a
7-5-1 record, ultimately losing to Liberty 3-0 in the league playoffs.
This year, Caldwell's soccer squad opened its season on a high note,
beating Interlake 2-0, but the Wildcats succumbed to Cedarcrest two nights
later. In the contest with the Saints, junior goal keeper Amber Schneider
notched the shutout, with Nicci Landeck and Lindsay Rafcliffe each scoring
The Wildcats took on Sammamish this past Tuesday night, and host
Liberty this evening, Sept. 23.
