It was quite a battle between No. 7 Eastside Catholic and No. 5 Kennedy, with the Crusaders ultimately advancing to the quarterfinals with a 3-1 victory. Kennedy won the first game farily easily, then it was all Eastside in the next two. Kennedy was in control in Game 3 for most of the way and had several match points, but Eastside Catholic pulled out a 30-28 win.
The Crusaders now play Mount Spokane, which blanked Enumclaw in the first round, 3-0. All quarterfinals are at 6:30 tonight. Kennedy and Enumclaw play an elimination match at 2 p.m.
The other two first-round matches are still in progress. Shorecrest leads Auburn Mountainview 2-1, while Mount Si and Lakes are headed to game 5. I’ll get you those finals when they’re in.
