Issaquah baseball, lacrosse start with wins, Nelson cards three-under to lead Wolves in girls golf | Prep sports news

Scores, highlights and updates from prep sports in Issaquah and Sammamish.


Issaquah 1 Kentridge 0

The Eagles got a combined shutout on the mound from pitchers Ryan Peart, David Van Halm and Tyler Huling, and the game winning RBI with no outs in the seventh inning on a Matt Sarkozy double to beat Kentridge 1-0 in the season opener.

The Chargers mounted an early threat on an error and passed ball, before having a runner caught stealing home to end the inning. Peart, Van Halm and Huling, who picked up the win in one inning of relief, kept Kentridge to four hits.

Mitchell Morimoto began the bottom of the seventh with a triple before Sarkozy knocked him in for the game winning run on Issaquah’s only two extra base hits of the game.

The Crusaders used four innings on the mound from Bill Dimlow to get the win.

Ross Komenda scored four goals and Colin MacIlvennie added three more as the Crusaders beat neighbor Eastlake in the season opener for both teams Saturday in Sammamish.

The game, which also served as a cancer research fundraiser and event to honor members of each school community impacted by the disease, was part of the No One Fights Alone campaign and also the head coaching debut at EC for Gordon MacIlvennie.

“Our defense played very well,” he told U.S. Lacrosse Washington.  “We have a very talented squad, but we have to make sure that we gel as a team.”

Cullen Payne scored three goals for Eastlake and Chase Barlow added two more in the loss.

The Eagles had no trouble with Oregon’s Sherwood High School, using an 11-3 halftime lead and three goals from Zach Fritz and Mikey Giannopulos to get the win in their season opener.

The Spartans opened the season with a 17-2 win over O’Dea, which was playing its first varsity game, behind five goals from Charley Kurtenbach and three more from Michael Cowin.
