It’s time to kick the tires and light the fires." “Mercer Island helped a lot by just telling us where all the water and haz- ards were," Teller said. “We’d never played here before, so it was just good sportsmanship that they helped us." MAYBE THE MERCER ISLAND players were too helpful as the Islanders’ top player, sophomore Ben Garrett, fin- ished with a 6-over-par 42, followed by No. 3 Matt Macauley (44), No. 5 Scott Sulman (44). No. 2 Nathan Walker (46) and No. 6 Alex Dunlop (48). Matt _ Rachmantheteam's No. 3 golfer, shot a 50.

Garrett is a Plateau member with well over 100 matches on the yearaold, tree-lined course atop Sammamish Plateau. “We’re a much better team than Mount Si. We have better players but we just didn’t put it all together today.” “On this course you can shoot a 38 and then shoot a 48," Macauley said. “It‘s not like we were that far off just a little off —— but no one was on. It’s not like we all did bad, it’s just that no one did great. . . It definitely was a match we should’ve won." Mercer Island made up for the loss on Monday by nipping Newport 195497 at Tall Chief Golf Course in Fall City. Senior Sulman tied for medalist hon- ors with Newport’s Royce Koh with a one-over-par 36.

Garrett had one of his toughest rounds ever, finishing out of top five with a 46. Football: quarter pushed Mercer Island’s lead to 200 “They ran a quick slant inside." said Kirtman, who also caught four passes from MI quarterback Sam Hale for 35 V yards. “1 saw the quarterback face my way and he tumed his shoulders, then he just threw the pass and I broke at the right time and I bobbled it a little bit and got control and ran it on in. I ran with all my might into the end zone. It was 45 yards, so I was out of breath." Kinman's sophomore brother, David, . also tumed in a strong performance for the Islanders. David Kirtman was sec— . 0nd in rushing yardage for the team, gaining 37 yards on eight carries. He scored Mercer Island’s second touchdown with a 53—yard dash that was topped with a point-after~touchdown kick by new kicker Daris Ghoddoussi. The touchdowns by the Kirtmans also markedthefirsttimeeverinNreholl’s tenure and possibly school history that two brothers scored TDs in one game. “It feels good to have him on the field and-to block for Mike Kimmn . said of playing with his brother. “I ran and gave him a hug after he scored a touchdown. I love being on the field with my brother.” ' CEDARCREST BROKE UP Mercer Island’s string of 15 scoreless quarters that stretched back to last sea— son when they scored late in the fourth quarter. The Red Wolves (4~5 last sea- son) snapped the shutout when Henry connected with Michael McDonald for a 45—yard touchdown pass late in the game. The Islanders held Cedarcrest to 182 yards in total offense, 32 on the ground, while gaining 204 yards them- selves, 158 coming on the ground. With the Red Wolves vanquished, Mercer Island’sgsole focus will be on dethroning Newport, the defending Kingco champion that lost in the state semifinals. kfter losingto the Knights twoyearsinatowandfiveoutoftheIaSt six times, the Islanders definiwa have a score to settle with offensive jugger- naut Newport which blew out Interlake 49-21 on Friday. “We owe them one; we owe them a couple. It’s about time (we beat them)? Carlson said. “This [is what we look' forward to. This is the University of Newport.

Cedarcrest, which finished second in the Class 1A state tournament in 1994, fought hard with Mercer Island in the second game. They led 8—5 and pulled within l3—12 after losing the ' lead at.8-8, before being called for a net violation and an ace by Chamberlain, which sealed the second game’s 15- 13 outcome. . “We did OK with how new we — a lot of us have never played to- ‘ gether,” Cedarcrest 6—foot junior Erin Townsend said. “They’re good; they look like they played together all the time. They just looked confident.”~ "‘Vlfiththembeingasgoodateamas they are, and for us'being young as We are, we played really well for the first game,” said Red Wolves Katie Power, who had a game-high nine digs and also had six kills. Chamberlain, Katie Innes and fresh— man Julia Rindlaub helped lead the Islanders in the opener. Chamberlain dished 13 assists, had four aces, four kills and three digs; Innes had six kills and Rindlaub turned in an impressive de- o I , g II but with five kills and two amazing digs that kept alive two long volleys. Sophomore setter Andrea Wickstrom also had a solid game for Cedarcrest with seven assists. H .1.
