of the game without the services of the other senior co-captain, Kevin Isackson, who was assessed a yellow card by officials in the 29th minute and was not re-entered soon after, even though coaches could do so. The referee for the contest appeared to be the same one who assessed a controversial red card on Isackson during the Wildcats’ 1-1 tie at Skyline on Friday, March 14. That red card cost Isackson a one-game suspension; one more red would cost him the rest of his senior season according to high school rules. Isackson will return for Mount Si’s games this week against the Spartans and Mercer Island.

Lexi Johnson. Marissa Busby, the team’s sweeper, and stopper Alexis Greer led a fierce defensive line-up.

The girls’ willingness to try new things, work hard during practice, maneuver as one organism during games, communicate on the field, and support one another made the season a success.
