Coach Brown's Recap, May 12th vs Issaquah
"Well, we are in the sweet sixteen!
Ben and I are were talking late last night about all of our games together. I don’t know how you could argue any game was bigger than that one....state games included. Just an epic night. Crowd was awesome, we have a frosh keeper with the game winning goal and some serious clutch saves. I’m still grinning ear to ear.
Alec Bothwell got the goal from Banner Hovigna with 7 minutes left in regulation dead locked at 0-0, then with 10 seconds left in stoppage, they neutralize on a corner. We stay deadlocked in two OTs then the shoot out.
This was Colby’s night."
Player of the match- Colby Ramsey.
Coach Brown's Recap, May 10th vs Inglemoor
"Two down….One to go for the state bracket! We got two big goals last night from Sully “Mr.May” Smith last night. Pretty clutch performance two games in a row from a frosh, I cannot say enough good things about his poise and discipline. The last two matches, Sully and Al have really been connecting strong in the attacking third. It is the right time to be linking up!
Reed Paradissis had another stellar performance as well as Daniel Jenkins. Both of those two are a handful for any opposition up the gut.
Saturday night…..we are playing for a seed in the sweet 16 state bracket. The boys are pumped and will be ready!!!
Mount Si (10-5-3) vs Issaquah (14-2-1) @ Skyline HS 7pm. Be there!!"
Players of the match- Sully Smith, Big Al, Daniel Jenkins and Reed Paradissis
Coach Brown's Recap, April 17th vs Newport
Goals- Big Al Bothwell and Mateo DiDomenico
Assists- Jake Jimenez and Kyle Hunter
Shut Out- Colby Ramsey
"We played a physical and strong Newport squad last night and got the results in a 2-0 victory. We stuck to our game plan and the boys executed very well. Defensively we were top notch, our back line has been very tough to penetrate on and is getting better every week.
Jimenez got the first dime of the night hitting big Al on a header off a throw. The second goal came after half with Mateo getting his 1st of the season from a Kyle Hunter feed.
Two more to go.....gunning for that 3rd spot and home field advantage."
Players of the match- Mount Si “killer B’s” defensive unit.
Coach Brown's Recap, April 24th @ Woodinville
"We played Woodinville last night at Pop Keeney. Our goal was to capitalize off of our performance from our 7-0 match vs Bothell and play a full 80 minutes. Big Al took it to heart and recorded back to back hat tricks. Over the last two matches, Big Al has recorded 6 goals and 3 assists. He is now second in the league with points with 10 goals and 4 assists (24 pts). We are playing better soccer now as we are almost at full strength getting back three starters from injury.
We have three matches left (Newport, Skyline, and Eastlake), we are gunning for that 3 position for the playoffs and know we will have to win out to get that home field advantage for playoffs."
Coach Brown's Recap, April 21st vs Bothell
"We played a well executed match on Saturday night hosting Bothell at our house. We went into the locker room at half with a 5-0 advantage. Leading the way was big Al Bothwell who finished the epic night with 3 goals and 2 assists. Jared Davies also had two goals last night. Inaki and Banner rounded out the scoring. Assists were provided by Al 2, Jake Jimenez 2, Sully Smith 1, and Mateo 1.
We got Banner back last night and he really was the X factor in the middle. His work ethic was top notch on both sides of the ball.
Everyone looked good last and contributed to this one."
Players of the match- Big Al, Jared Davies, and Banner Hovigna.
Coach Brown's Recap, April 19th vs Inglemoor
"We lost to Interlake in OT last night 3-1. We walked into halftime up 1-0 and were playing well. We were possessing and sticking to our game plan. After we got scored on just a minute into the second half, we started to mirror Inglemoor's play which cost us dearly. The momentum swung over to our opponent's advantage and we disregarded our game plan after that. There was way too much dribbling in the defensive third and in the midfield which killed any kind of attack we had going forward. Our squad turned into playing as individuals instead of a team and you cannot win games that way. This was a disappointing loss to say the least. Leadership has to be present on the field and not always come from my assistant coach and me. Communication is vital at this stage of competition and must get better. We have two important weeks ahead of us and these small things are what matter most. We have a hungry Bothell team coming to our house on Saturday who just lost to Newport 3-2. They will be confident and ready for us the second time around. We have to execute on our task at hand."
Player of the match- Inaki McCarthy
Coach Brown's Recap, April 17th vs North Creek
"5-1 win vs north creek. 2nd half was strong.
Big Al netted two, Reed, Sully, and Jarod Kaye also had a goal. Kyle Hunter led the way in the assists column with two and Sully added another. One down this week, two more to go."
Players of the match- Reed Paradissis and Sully Smith
Coach Brown's Recap, April 3rd vs Skyline
“We did not execute our game plan last night. Our distribution was poor and we were playing like individuals and not as a team. When we try and overcompensate by taking extra touches on the ball and our movement is not fluid off the ball we are digging quite a hole for us to gain any momentum.
Our scouting report was crystal clear. We are rounding out the first half Friday and start the second half over break. Two days to prepare for Friday.”

Coach Brown's Recap, March 20th @ Newport
"We played a sloppy game vs Newport on Friday losing 2-1. My scout was present doing possession counts and the results speak volume. Stats are true and our possession game was subpar. We are getting healthy as we approach the second half a week away. At full strength, we are a dangerous squad and we have yet to play this season all healthy…..that is our goal for this week.
Sebastian had our goal from Banner Hovigna."
Player of the match - Sebastian Bednik
Coach Brown's Recap, March 27th vs Woodinville
"We played a hungry Woodinville squad at our house last night. We mirrored our opposition's play for most of the evening which was frustrating. Our squad is dealing with some injuries that we look to get a better handle of for our next match at Newport on Friday. The boys did not execute in the attacking third last night, too many opportunities that we did not take advantage of. Will was our best option in the middle last night, kept things simple which we stress when we prep."
Players of the match- Jaxen Maw and Will Niemela
Coach Brown's Recap, March 24th vs Issaquah
"Very evenly played match. Game went to overtime deadlocked at 0-0. We had a goal the first 5 minutes of the match called back and outside of that, a missed PK from Issaquah and a brilliant save by frosh phenom, Colby Ramsey, the match was back and forth. A lot of electricity in the air as it was a playoff atmosphere."
Player of the match- Colby Ramsey
Coach Brown's Recap, March 22nd vs Inglemoor
"We tied last night 1-1 2 OT.
We were pretty flat….back and forth match, we got ourselves in trouble because we mirrored Inglemoors play for most of the evening. We will need to play our “A” game against Issy on Saturday. They are a loaded squad with a lot of experience and can put up numbers in a hurry.
We will have Reed back making his season debut and Kyle is a week away from game action, so we are getting healthier."
Players of the Match - Jarod Kaye and Daniel Jenkins
Coach Brown's Recap, March 20th vs North Creek
"We played North Creek and met most of our goals last night. We played a good 50 of the 90 minutes the way we wanted to execute as we are still searching for that all around quality performance. Some good things came out of last night and that was even distribution out of our scoring. I thought both of our keepers (Colby and Jaedan) had a well played match. We experimented with our second option formation and also observed some good things for us moving forward utilizing our attack.
The triangle 3 is still a work in progress but, it is coming together. We have three matches this week and have to keep this winning streak rolling."
Players of the Match- Mateo DiDomenico and Jaxen Maw
