Leet Leads the Way as Falcons down Issaquah

  • Written by Derek Johnson
A couple weeks ago, Woodinville Lacrosse headed to California for their annual spring trip. Simply put, the Falcons were in a funk. A tough early season schedule led to several losses -- which in turn led to dissension in the ranks. But the team cleared the air in San Diego. Upon returning to Seattle, coach Pete Crowley had a heart-to-heart talk with senior Mason Leet. 
 
“We had to get our mojo back in terms of team dynamics and chemistry went,” Crowley said. “We talked to Mason about leadership and being the man the team needs him to be. That’s being positive, upbeat, working through everything in a positive manner and communicating with his teammates. He took that whole-heartedly tonight in his approach. And the team stayed super positive. Nobody got frustrated with each other. And the result was on the scoreboard.”

Playoff Hopes Fade after Disappointing Tie with Bothell

  • Written by Derek Johnson

On a cold, wet night at Pop Keeney Stadium, the Woodinville Falcons didn’t lose a game. But they lost an opportunity.

Playing a winless Bothell squad, the Falcons took it two overtimes, before settling for a 0-0 draw.

“I thought a lot of us fought real hard the entire time,” Woodinville senior Sebastian Farris said. “We kept a clean sheet and as a defender that’s one of the biggest things for me. Unfortunately we weren’t strong enough on the attack. We didn’t challenge their goalkeeper and defense enough. In the end, we couldn’t get that final goal. And it sucks.”

  • Written by Derek Johnson

When the two top teams in the conference get together, sparks are going to fly. That was certainly the case last Wednesday at Hartman Park. The Redmond Mustangs remained unbeaten as they knocked off the Woodinville Falcons 10-4.

Despite the loss, Woodinville took solace that they scored four runs off Redmond ace Kiki Milloy. The previous time they faced Milloy on March 27, they were shut out 2-0.

Falcons Drop One to Issy in the Cold Drizzle

  • Written by Derek Johnson

The closest thing Falcon Field has for a press box is a green shipping container behind the Woodinville dugout. During games the doors are open, giving players and coaches easy access to baseball-related supplies. It basically serves as a shed for the baseball field. 

It was in that container that your trusty correspondent spent much of last Thursday’s game. He (and his Nikon) sought refuge there whenever the steady downpour seemed on the verge of morphing into a monsoon.

Falcons Weather the Storm, then Pummel Mount Si

  • Written by Derek Johnson
The dark clouds loomed overhead and looked ominous. There was a feeling of foreboding in the air. Sure enough, by the third inning, the clouds unleashed a hail storm that forced a delay in last Tuesday’s game.
 
But when play resumed, it was the Woodinville offense that erupted in Biblical proportions. The Lady Falcons scored twelve runs in the fourth inning, in route to a 17-6 win over Mount Si. The win improved Woodinville’s record to 9-2 in Kingco 4A and 11-2 overall.
