Wildcats undefeated streak continues

Mount Si improves overall record to 6-0 during the 2018 season.

The Mount Si Wildcats defense wreaked havoc against the Issaquah Eagles on the gridiron.

Mount Si dominated in all facets of play en route to a convincing 38-6 win on the road against Issaquah on Oct. 5 at Gary Moore Stadium in Issaquah. Wildcats’ defensive lineman Slater Macko, who finished with a game-high three sacks, made life difficult for Issaquah quarterback Trevor Morine throughout the duration of the game. Macko, RJ Bell, Andrew Edson and Carlos Ortiz consistently got pressure on Issaquah’s signal caller for all four quarters.

“It was a total team effort. We all came together as a unit. We tried to do a great job of keeping him in the pocket while at the same time getting pressure on him. We had a great night,” Macko said.

Mount Si head coach Charlie Kinnune said his team’s defense has rose to the occasion all year long. The Wildcats have surrendered a meager total of 68 points in six games during the 2018 season.

“We challenged our defense all offseason and our defense has shown up. We are the No. 1 scoring defense right now in our league. We’re very proud and happy. The defensive staff has done a great job. Our kids are coachable and they’re hungry,” Kinnune said.

The Wildcats game plan on defense centered upon trying to contain Morine in the pocket due to his adept scrambling ability.

“I’m so impressed with that kid. What a tough competitor he is,” Kinnune said of Morine. “We knew that was who we had to get a handle on. It was hard to replicate that in practice but we did our best.”

Mount Si defensive backs Trevor Clem and Andrew Mostofi had one interception apiece in the win. Mount Si senior quarterback Cale Millen, who connected with Mostofi on a 2-yard touchdown pass with 10:05 left in the second quarter, marveled at his team’s defensive performance after the game.

“The defense has been playing great all year. We have playmakers all over the field,” Millen said.

Mount Si running back Cole Norah had three rushing touchdowns in the victory. Wildcats’ backup quarterback Clay Millen had a 4-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds left in regulation.

Mount Si (6-0) will face the Skyline Spartans at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12 at Skyline High School in Sammamish.
