The Mount Si boys soccer team continued making history Tuesday May 18 with its first ever win in a state tournament, beating visiting Auburn Mountainview 4-0.
While Auburn Mountainview managed to hold the game even through most of the first half, the Wildcats’ depth, speed and strength wore their opponents down.
“This group is very special, and we’re not done,” coach Darren Brown said after the game.
Mount Si drew first blood 33 minutes into the first half when Sam Joselyn’s header found the back of the net.
They dominated the second half, adding on three goals to end Auburn Mountainview’s season.
Auburn Mountainview’s play was weakened after losing its top scorer, Isaac Cardoza, near the end of the first half for unknown reasons.
But, Brown said, he didn’t think Cardoza would have made that much of a difference. “My backline’s quicker…but he has a good touch.”
The second goal came on a header from senior Doug Silvius just a few minutes into the second half.
Sophomore forward Chace Carlson redirected a pass from Cody Clearman for the third goal in the 60th minute.
Joselyn scored the fourth goal in the 79th minute.
Goalkeeper Ryan Herman had a mostly quiet night in goal, with only a handful of real threats.
Mount Si next plays Glacier Peak, Friday 7 p.m. May 21, at Mount Si.
