Mount Si 3 Issaquah 2
What a night! I appreciate any athlete in every sport that shines in the moment. Number 3 had an evening that will always be remembered. He was smart at a time when his team needed him most and he delivered. He is special, Reed has that gift that a lot of people do not see. He is already ahead of the next play in his mind and his anticipation to me is right there with Davis Karaica, an X back of ours that I always use as the bench mark.
I am proud of this team for staying focused and dedicating the time and energy into our prep. Being organized and disciplined has many advantages for the road ahead.
New season on Monday. Final Four! Mount Si, Ferris, Puyallup, and Jackson.
Time to prep.

♦ Cats clinch a spot in the WIAA Final Four with solid playoff win in Game 2 in the State Tourney over their KingCo 4A rivals Issaquah!
The Cats come back from being down 0-1, go in to halftime tied at 1-1, and then earn a dramatic 2-1 win over the Sumner Spartans in the Round of 16!
Mount Si 2 Sumner 1
Goals- Drew Harris and Mateo DiDomenico
Assists- Sully Smith and Drew Harris
Well executed! Very proud of the boys and the effort put into that match. Sumner was a good squad and I thought a number of our players really stood out in this one. Colby was locked on and had a prime performance. Jake Jimenez got an “A” grade and was pivotal to what we did last night. Paul Talens and Sully were both very solid on both sides of the ball. Drew paced the game well and held that ball up numerous times for our attack to follow. I appreciated how he dictated the tempo of the match.
Reed and Mateo get the game balls in this one. All I can say about Mateo is, that is just Mateo. He is clutch. Clutch time performance and one of the biggest goals in Wildcat History. Reed was an absolute beast and stood out on game film. He was clearly the X-factor in this match and came out of it smelling like a rose.
Quarterfinals. @ Issaquah. 7pm. Saturday.
