Wednesday morning stars

I’ll do things a little different this morning before I head on over the WIAA State Hall of Fame luncheon in Renton. I’ll break the stars up into the sports we got a lot of calls for last night.

BOYS SOCCER

— How about those Alvarez brothers at Mountlake Terrace? Jonathan (a freshman) scored a hat-trick and got two assists from older bro Manix (a junior) in a 3-0 win against Lynnwood.

— Nathan Hale’s Josh Breiger had four goals against Ingraham to up his season total to 11.

Nickolas Coker of Juanita scored both goals in a 2-1 win against Mount Si, including one at the death for the winner.

— Behind nine saves, Skyline’s Brian Schwartz certainly earned the clean sheet in a 0-0 tie with Roosevelt.

— Lastly kudos to some big winners in the KingCo 4A League. Ballard got its first league win of the season, beating No. 6 Issaquah 2-1. Newport also shocked Woodinville 3-0.

BASEBALL

— The Skyline duo of Sean Penberthy and Ryan Somers combined to go 7-for-8 and added two runs, three RBI and two stolen bases in a 5-4 win against Redmond.

— Overlake (a school of about 200) beat Nathan Hale behind the bat of Josh Bensussen, who went 3-for-3 and hit two home-runs.

— Credit some big shutouts to LW’s Karl Myers, Kamiak’s Andrew Groves and Inglemoor’s Obi Taylor.

— Some notable team efforts: Kentridge scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh to beat Federal Way 7-6. Arlington had three in the final frame to beat Everett 10-9. Curtis beat Graham-Kapowsin 2-1 despite recorded just one hit.

SOFTBALL

— How about those 4A unbeatens? Emerald Ridge, Stanwood and Jackson each kept their pursuits of perfection alive with wins Tuesday.

— How about some WesCo no-hitters? Lynnwood’s Julia Nealer, Karla Hanson of Mariner, and Arlington’s Christina Rayner each dominated from the circle.

— Bothell’s Britta McOmber hit a winning RBI-double in the bottom of the sixth and Ashleigh Carter struck out 14 in a one-hitter to lead the Cougars to a 2-1 win against Woodinville.

— Lake Stevens gutted out to the only other one-run game, 3-2 against Monroe.
