Mount Si’s girls’ soccer team seems to have come out of its first-half struggles as they won their third straight game last Tuesday, shutting out the Liberty Patriots, 3-0.
As was the case in the other two wins, veterans and youth combined for a team victory. Freshman Jessica Hargett scored her first high-school goal and senior Mariana Zanella also scored. Junior Nikki Stanton added a goal and assist to the effort, and freshman Alexis Pearlstein also assisted on a goal.
Hargett was excited about her goal. “Well, basically I was just there. Lexi [Pearlstein] had a good shot off goal and the keeper, she had brick hands and the ball just swept out and then I just took a hard shot and it went right through,” Hargett said.
The Wildcats continued to show improvement as they played the Bellevue Wolverines, another top-three league opponent, very tough last Thursday and forced overtime. But the fans, many of them there representing the Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association as part of a pregame ceremony, may have witnessed the emergence of a new superstar, and just like Deines at Issaquah, this Wolverine girl’s first name is Kate.
