Mount Si football team takes big win over Sedro-Woolley

After a loss to Woodinville, the Mount Si Football team bounced back with a big win on the road against Sedro-Woolley High School on Friday, Sept. 29.

The Wildcats claimed their third win of the season in 42 to 23 game against the 2A team. Head Coach Charlie Kinnune said the performed well overall but were still working on improving their consistency on both sides of the ball. That consistency is something the team is continuing to work on, Kinnune said.

As for the game itself, Kinnune said Mount Si was able to run right by their opponents and execute their vertical passing game.

”We just had more, better athletes. They really couldn’t handle our vertical passing game at all, we took advantage of that right away,” he said. “We have some speed and we are going to test everyone that way, we did early on often and were successful.”

Mount Si got off to a big lead in the first quarter with two touchdowns from Jonny Barrett and one from Colby Botten with a two point conversion from Andrew Mostofi. The second quarter saw a huge 80 yard run from Jesiah Irish for the first touchdown of the quarter.

Kinnune said the performance was one of the goals they had as a team, to be able to speed up offensively and get to a point where they can set they tempo of the game.

Their next match is another away game, this time against Issaquah. Mount Si has won every away game they have played this season and plan to do it again on Friday, Oct. 6.

”We call ourselves road warriors,” Kinnune said. “We are going to give them our best Mount Si Wildcats, and we are concentrating on getting better every day, working on consistency.”
