Mount Si’s football team gave the school a Homecoming to remember Friday night, Oct. 13, with a 52-7 win over Inglemoor. Following a sunny Homecoming parade earlier in the day, the team took to the field sporting pink socks, tape, and other accessories, in acknowledgement of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

They then proceeded to pay their highest- and fastest scoring game of the season, with two touchdowns coming in the first six minutes of the game.

Just 36 seconds into the chilly game, quarterback Cale Millen connected with Johnny Barrett on a 13-yard pass to get on the scoreboard, and a good kick from Reed Paradissis brought the score to 7-0.

Barrett and Millen repeated the performance three more times in the first quarter, then David Sotelo picked up a four-yard pass from Millen to make the fifth touchdown of the quarter.

In the second quarter, the pace slowed a bit, as penalties increased for both teams. Stopped at the 26 yard-line at 7:53, Mount Si called for a field goal. Paradissis made every kick count, including this one, before turning the ball over to Inglemoor.

Barrett had one more touchdown in him for the quarter though, and he caught a 63-yard pass from Millen at 4:15 to bring the score to 45 at halftime.

In addition to performances by the choir and dance teams, the halftime show celebrated the entire homecoming court: seniors Jacob Bradburn and Ana Kilian were the prince and princess of performing arts; Nick Marzetti and Olivia Henning were the scholar prince and princess; Jesiah Irish and Mia Fowler were athletics prince and princess; Dusty Dover and Adrianna Pharmer-Auxier were the prince and princess of spirit; Jake Ehrlich and Lexie Rose were the prince and princess of pride; and Logan van Campen was the jester.

Underclassmen in the court were juniors Chirag Vedullapualli and Emi Yoshikawa, sophomores William Brucchieri and Megan Simpson, and freshmen Colby Ramsey and Victoria Garcia. Life skills students Dane Bruckner and Olivia Corbin were the duke and duchess.

Finally, the Homecoming King and Queen, Jesiah Irish and Lexie Rose, were named.

In the second half of the game, more of Mount Si’s bench saw playing time, and scored, too. Paine Smith scored on an 18-yard run and a kick from Paradissis brought the score to 52-0. Inglemoor scored in the final quarter, for a final score of 52-7.

Mount Si’s overall record is now 5-2 and the team is tied for second place in the league with Bothell and Skyline. Their next game will be against North Creek High School on Friday, Oct. 20, at Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell.
