Mount Si makes Statement with win over Woodinville

  • Written by Derek Johnson

When you’re the two-time defending Kingco 4A champs, there’s going to be a bull’s eye on your back. Such was the case last Friday in Snoqualmie. The Woodinville Falcons entered a den of hostility and went down to defeat at Mount Si, 27-17.

The game pitted two teams ranked in the state’s top ten. But four touchdown passes from Mount Si’s Cale Millen combined with Woodinville miscues proved to be the difference.

They might have finished even higher, had they not been subverted by a course that snaked through the woods with abrupt turns.
