Mount Rainier gave it a good go against a team with a much better record in Todd Beamer on Tuesday.

The Lady Rams scored a third game victory off the Titans, but that was too little, too late, in a momentum sense, anyway, as the Rams went on to lose the match in four sets, 11-25, 17-25, 25-22, 16-25, in South Puget Sound League North Division volleyball action inside the Todd Beamer gymnasium in Federal Way.

The Rams dropped to 3-6 in the South Puget Sound League North Division while the Titans improved to 8-1.

Mount Rainier coach Tom Wells put the blame not on players, per se, but on passing, which, as a whole, the team did not do a very good job at a lot of the time.

"Bad passing," said Wells, "It's a spot we have to work on."

Everything could have gone just right for Foster's football team, beating the foe. The Bulldogs had enough opportunities to do so, no doubt, but everything just went wrong in a 20-7 loss to the Lindbergh Eagles in a game the Bullogs led at one point, and, being at home, under the lights, in front of screaming fans, Friday night.

"We were there, we had the scheme, we had the play, we just didn't make it," said Matt Leonard, Foster head coach, whose team fell to 2-2 in the Seamount while Lindbergh upped its record to 3-1.

So just what went wrong?

Plays.

Big plays, on offense and defense. The Eagles made more big plays.
The Eagles scored first with 1:08 left in the first quarter on a drive that started at their own 34-yard line with 6:20 on the clock. They went 13 plays for a two-yard touchdown, with the two-point conversion no good.

The Bulldogs got the ball, but they didn't go anywhere on offense its second possession of the first quarter, kicking it on fourth down, just seconds into the second quarter.

Sports Roundup for Oct. 23

Eight games; that's two full months of action. In most years that's all the time needed to decide who will be marching towards the playoffs and who will be staying home, dreaming of next year.

This year however, Chief Sealth, Nathan Hale and Ingraham all needed a couple extra outings to test their mettle and to break a three way Metro League knot in order to punch a post season ticket.

The squads, all tied for second in the Metro League, entered Memorial Stadium Tuesday night for a mini tournament, consisting of up three games, each consisting of two eight minutes halves and each team needing to win at least one game in order to advance to the league playoffs.

Sealth managed to go 1-1 on the night, making the playoffs by defeating Ingraham 27-0 after falling earlier in the evening to Nathan Hale 22-10.

The Seahawks seemed not only fresh but fired up as it took on Nathan Hale in the night's opening game; alas the Raiders came prepared as well knocking off Sealth behind a vicious two headed rushing attack.

West Seattle fought a good fight but surrendered in battle to Chief Sealth, in three, competitive sets, marking a 25-23, 25-22, 25-20, match sweep for the Seahawks on the Wildcats' gym floor in Metro 'Valley' League action Monday Oct. 20.

Chief Sealth improved to a 5-2 record while West Seattle dropped to 4-3 in league. One more game for both these teams on Wednesday before a seeding game on Thursday propels them into Saturday's Metro League Tournament, with 16 teams in the three divisions, Valley, Sound, Mountain, competing for spots into the following weekend's district tournament.

"Always tough when we play West Seattle," said Seahawks coach, Lorna Considine. "Especially when coming on their last home game and seniors night. You never know what is going to happen. They definitely never gave up."

Never.

It was a three-set sweep of games for the Seahawks, but the Wildcats were in every single game, losing by no more than five points in any of the three miniature battles, if one wants to think about the finer details of why this match wasn't over until it was over, even with the word 'sweep' in there.

Two girl golfers from Mount Rainier High School will advance into state qualifying action next spring after placing high enough in South Puget Sound League action held at Gold Mountain near Gorst and Belfair.

The qualifier that will also be held at Gold Mountain will take place the week before the state tournament in May. State action will be in Spokane.
Taylor Prkut qualified 18th out of this past week's SPSL tournament and Mount Rainier teammate Amanda Inthavong qualified 27th.

A third Mount Rainier girls golfer -- Jill Ringoen -- is also on the cusp of going to the spring qualifier after taking 35th. Ringoen was involved in a tiebreaker playoff for 34th place.

Alyssa Metzger of the Lady Rams finished 41st.

Two Mount Rainier boys reached the second day of SPSL tournament play but did not qualify for spring play.

Zack Lockhart came in 40th and Seth Barnett tied for 42nd.
Both are freshmen.

Keeping track

Federal Way graduate connects
SAN FRANCISCO -- Your sports question for this week is: Who hit the only walk-off home run in National League Championship Series history to send a team on to the World Series?
The answer is Travis Ishikawa of the San Francisco Giants.
The Federal Way High School graduate became the first to accomplish the feat in the NLCS Thursday when he blasted a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth to break a 3-3 tie and advance the Giants with a 6-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Ishikawa and the San Francisco team will open the World Series on Tuesday at the home of the Kansas City Royals, and the 31-year-old Ishikawa's historical home run will no doubt be a part of the pregame highlights when the broadcast starts at 5 p.m.

Thommasen racks up 16 saves
FOREST GROVE, Ore. – Leyton Thommasen (Fr., Des Moines, Wash.) made an impressive 16 saves Friday, but Dylan Leathers' rebound of a penalty kick in the 109th minute allowed Linfield to escape with a 3-2 double overtime victory over the Boxers in Northwest Conference men's soccer action at Hanson Stadium.

Evergreen Wolverines twins Marques and Matthew Chacon received their blue and red first and second place medals to drape around their necks from Ray Prentice's hand, following the Seamount League Championship meet races for girls and boys cross-country teams on Evergreen's 3.2-mile course Saturday.
For girls, the only area top 10 finisher there was Kennedy's Lily Grassley, a freshman, taking fourth, one away from getting a red, white, or blue medal. And Tyee's Hector Dominguez, a senior, finished eighth.

This was not an elimination meet so all the Seamount schools' runners go on from here to the Fort Steilacoom Course for sub-districts this coming Saturday. The top 11 teams and 55 individuals go on to the West Central District meet the following weekend. And then it's on to state after that, in early November, for a select few individuals and teams.
Prentice's name was wanted, for a photo he was in.
