Mount Si quarterback Clay Millen threw four touchdown passes and the Wildcat defense got the shutout in a convincing 34-0 victory over the Issaquah Eagles (3-3) on Oct. 11.

The Wildcats (4-2) opened the scoring in the first quarter when Millen connected with wide receiver Colby Botten for a 35-yard touchdown pass to put them up 6-0. An interception from Wildcat defensive back Stuart DeMerit helped set up their second touchdown of the opening frame, a 5-yard touchdown catch by wide receiver Kevin Corder to make it a 13-0 game. The Wildcats capped off their impressive first quarter when Millen threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Corder to put them up 20-0.

After a scoreless second quarter, Millen continued to pick-apart the Eagles defense in the second half, throwing a 13-yard touchdown pass to running back Cole Norah to extend the lead to 27-0 in the third quarter.

Mount Si finished the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run from wide receiver Aiden Daugherty to give the Wildcats a 34-0 homecoming victory over the Eagles.

The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Wildcats. Both of the Wildcats losses have come in close games to two of the top teams in the state, Woodinville (5-1) and Eastlake (5-1). Mount Si will host the Skyline Spartans (3-3) in their next game on Oct. 18.
