Wildcats score state berth

It’s on to state for the Mount Si boys soccer team.

The Wildcats defeated Issaquah, 2-1, on May 12 for their third consecutive victory in the 4A KingCo tournament.

Mount Si freshman goalkeeper Colby Ramsey was the man of the match, making three saves in the penalty kick shootout — and then scoring the game-winning PK.

“He was absolutely off the charts. People were throwing him in the air after the game,” said coach Darren Brown.

In regulation, Mount Si took a 1-0 lead with seven minutes left on a goal by Alec Bothwell, a 6-foot-6 striker.

Issaquah knotted the match with 10 seconds left in regulation.

After two scoreless five-minute, sudden-death overtime periods, the game went to PKs. Mount Si outscored Issaquah, 7-5, to win.

The Wildcats were to play Sumner on Tuesday, after the Reporter’s deadline for this issue.

Sully Smith netted two goals in Mount Si’s 2-0 victory over visiting Inglemoor on May 10.

Smith tallied in overtime as Mount Si defeated Eastlake, 2-1, on May 8. In the match at Mount Si, Bothwell also scored off an assist from Smith, a freshman forward. Wildcat center back Reed Paradissis also played a solid match, according to Brown.

All three matches were loser-out contests.
