Bothell Maintains Dominance
By Colin Caruso

Pop Keeney welcomed the Mount Si Wildcats to take on the #1 team in the state in 4A football, the Bothell Cougars. It was Homecoming for the Cougars, who have dismantled their opponents this year by a total score of 173-59. This game was par for the course for the Cougars, who jumped all over the Wildcats early and often.

Three first half touchdowns for Sam McPherson and the Cougars led to a 31-0 halftime score. They also amounted two interceptions on defense and blocked two punts in the first half. It was a superb effort for the Cougars, 4-0, who click on all sides of the ball. McPherson would add another rushing score in the second half, and a kick return TD, giving him 5 touchdowns on the day.

Mount Si, despite being a larger team than Bothell, could not get off the ball with the same pace and tenacity as the Cougars. The Cougar crowd was in full force for the Homecoming festivities, and their team played with the pace needed to secure a good victory.

Mount Si falls to 2-2 on the year, an unfamiliar place for them, as the past few years they have been at the top of 3A/2A KingCo, right behind the Wolverines of Bellevue. This jump to the bigger 4A division has shown its difficulties, and Mount Si will have to battle through that. A roster of over 15 seniors should bring this team back with a force to finish the year strong.

But this night belonged to McPherson and the Cougars. A final score of 43-13 closed Friday night for Pop Keeney, and Bothell was able to celebrate their Homecoming with a victory.

Top Performers:
Mount Si
Jonathan Hillel – 14-22 150 yards, 2TD, 2INT

Sam McPherson – 15 carries for 109 yards and 4TD, 90 yard KO return for TD
Ross Bowers – 16-23 205 yards, 1TD 1INT

O’Dea Runs Wild over the Cats
By Steven Dion

A drizzly Leon H. Brigham Field at Memorial Stadium in Seattle served as the site for a second round playoff contest between Mount Si and the Fighting Irish. O’Dea head coach Monte Kohler has implemented a run-heavy offense led by an elite backfield of Myles Gaskin and Jack Flor. Mount Si reached the sweet sixteen largely on the arm of Oregon State commit Nick Mitchell. Second ranked O’Dea would demonstrate a great divide against the rest of 3A and the 4th ranked Wildcats.

The first quarter got off to a slow start as drop passes and turnovers plagued both sides early. The battle of field position was altered greatly by strong winds affecting punts positively and negatively. Before the first frame concluded, Myles Gaskin broke off a 76 yard run for six. This first score opened the valve for a surge of more Gaskin touchdowns. By halftime, he logged three more from 6, 12, and 52 yards out. At break, the Fighting Irish led 28-0.

The third quarter picked up where the game left off as Myles Gaskin dazzled the O’Dea sidelines with his fifth and final TD, from 42 yards. Mount Si struggled to wrap up the strong ball carriers from O’Dea as quarterback Pierre LeDorze broke tackles as frequently as MG. Mount Si refused to go scoreless on the contest as senior quarterback/receiver circuit Nick Mitchell and Trevor Daniels connected for a three yard TD completion. At the end of regulation, O’Dea cruised to a 49-7 victory. This result coincided with a 48-6 victory for 1st ranked Bellevue over Glacier Peak. Depending on bracket structure, it seems O’Dea and the Wolverines are poised to meet up down the playoff road.

Top Performer:

Myles Gaskin – 5 rushing TDs of 76, 52, 42, 12, and 6 yards

Bellevue Wins in Bellevue Fashion
By Colin Caruso

On a brisk fall night in Bellevue the undefeated home side Wolverines were matched up against an undefeated opponent, the Mount Si Wildcats. It was homecoming for Bellevue, so their stands were packed with students and parents. As for Mount Si, this was an opportunity to tackle the #1 team in the country, and their fans knew it. Both stands were packed to watch the best that 3A Washington has to offer.

Mount Si received the opening kickoff and put together a great drive, a mix of passing and running, to punch in a touchdown and take the lead 7-0. Their fan section went crazy; could this be the year that someone tops Bellevue? The Wolverines put a quick stop to that thought. 52 straight points from Bellevue, sparked by huge runs from highly touted running back and defensive back Budda Baker and electrifying quarterback Timmy Haehl, put this game out of reach early in the third quarter. Mount Si found the endzone once more in the fourth quarter to make the final score a little friendlier to the eye for Wildcat fans, 52-13.

Top Performers:
Budda Baker – 2TD runs of 88 yards and 35 yards
Timmy Haehl – 2TD runs of 48 yards and 45 yards

The crowd picked up in the 4:45 game at Bellevue College, a girls matchup between Juanita and Liberty – the winner to secure third place in KingCo. Juanita came out in full court defense and maintained it throughout the first quarter, but Liberty continued to beat the press to create good shots in the half court. Five players for Liberty scored in the first, and the Patriots closed the quarter in the lead 14-11. Both teams dropped into a 2-3 zone on defense in the second, slowing the pace of play and forcing more mid-range and three-point shots. Neither side executed particularly well on offense against the zone in the second quarter, with both teams turning the ball over four times. Liberty extended their lead to five at the half in a low scoring quarter, 24-19.

Juanita came out on fire in the second half; almost totaling their first half score with 17 points in the third quarter alone. Winnie Levitt led the way for the Rebels in the third, scoring seven in the quarter and taking the lead by three going into the fourth. Juanita kept up their offensive pressure in the fourth quarter, starting the period on an 8-0 run to go up 11 with 4:41 to play. Liberty fought back with team speed and great ball movement but the 11 point lead was too much to surmount. Juanita secured the win and third place in KingCo, 53-45.
