A local club soccer team featuring one of the Mount Si boys soccer squad’s top goalies tested their skills against some of the top teams in the western United States recently in the U.S. Youth Soccer regional championships in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Crossfire Premier 92-Henderson, based in Redmond, went 2-2 in their matches at regionals, missing a shot at the national tournament. They opened pool play with a tough loss to a Los Angeles team, then won two straight games, outscoring their opponents, from Portland and Reno, 8-0 in those two contests. That onslaught advanced them into a quarterfinal match against the Admiral Elite Gladiators team from New Mexico. Crossfire gave it everything they had, but fell 2-1 in that match, ending their run.

Among the players on the Crossfire team is Ryan Herman, who was one of the top freshmen in the Mount Si program this spring and will likely compete for the goalkeeping job in 2009. Crossfire is coached by Sean Henderson.
