Tyee took care of business early in a 4-1 boys soccer rout of Renton Friday.

The Totems jumped out to a 4-0 lead by the end of the first half against the winless Indians and cruised to victory from there.

Tyee improved to 5-1-2 in Seamount League action for second place in the standings while knocking Renton to 0-8-0.

"We're just a bit behind where we were last year, but still on track," said Tyee head coach Allen Rider, whose team is coming off a state playoff appearance last year. "But a lot of other teams in the league are good, too."

One of those is first place Kennedy Catholic, who the Totems will meet Friday, May 2 at Highline Memorial Stadium. JFK won the first meeting between the two teams, 2-0.

"We'll be home right here," said Rider after this past Friday's win on the same pitch.

Junior midfielder/forward Adama Kante scored the first two goals for Tyee against the Indians.

He scored the first 7 minutes, 45 seconds in and drilled the second with 20:10 remaining until halftime.

Two other Totems scored before that time.

Tuesday afternoon Chief Sealth avenged an early season loss to rival West Seattle by coming away with a decisive 4-1 victory in boys soccer.

Luis Medina scored two goals, Devin Oxford put in another and Yael Pina chipped in with a goal and two assists for a Seahawk squad seeking a big homefield win.

A large and boisterous crowd showed up with home made signs and plenty of spirit for one of the area's most heated rivalry games.

West Seattle came out with plenty of energy but was unable to come away with the season sweep thanks in no small part to Sealth's potent offensive attack.

Alazar Gilay came away with the Wildcats loan goal despite the team repeatedly getting chances deep in Seahawk territory.

A windy and wet evening did little to dampen the energy as both squads gave great effort in this highly physical and aggressive match.

A little holding trying to get to the ball.

West Seattle Little League has announced its All-Star baseball tournament schedule, including the state Majors age 11-12 tournament it will host at its own Bar-S complex above Alki Point from July 12-19.
"As volunteers, we will be busy," said West Seattle financial advisor Jon Gearhardt.

At the end of the regular baseball season this spring, a handful of players ages 9, 10, 11 and 12 are picked for tryouts for the WSLL Majors All-Star teams for ages 9-10, 10-11, Majors age 11-12 and Juniors age 13-14. From this select pool, teams of 12-14 players will be picked the managers of the respective All-Star teams.

Many of the players who are selected for the All-Star team have been pitchers, catchers, outfielders and infielders on their respective teams. Many are also leaders. From the selections, the coaches will put together the team they best feel will meet their needs and give the West Seattle All-Stars the most competitive edge. All-Star players may need to adjust to new roles compared to the regular season.

West Seattle is facing a reloading test more difficult than usual this year.

After losing Sam Helliger to graduation -- the Washington State Baseball Coaches Association and Class 3A state player of the year -- West Seattle is going to have some trouble staying on top.

Hellinger was a lockdown pitcher while also hitting .416 in May 2013 when he was named to The Seattle Times all-area team. The unanimous Metro League MVP pitched a complete game with no earned runs against Mount Si last season to send the Wildcats to the state championship game for the first time in school history.

The Wildcats lost the championship, finishing second in state, but Hellinger was drafted in round 39 by the Mariners last year.

“Sam earned everything he got because he worked so hard,” said West Seattle coach Velko Vitalich. Vitalich has coached the Wildcats for 27 years and was named coach of the year by the Northwest Baseball Umpires Association in 2012.
