Wow… High scoring to close out the regular season…

Wow… High scoring to close out the regular season…

The regular season closed out this week with a high-scoring game by the girls. Cedarcrest had two players getting 3 scores (aka hat tricks) which were pretty exciting.

Here are some highlights captured in the Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal – Bringing you the best coverage of Snoqualmie Valley sports (

Madelyn Davidson and Melanie Cammarano both had “hat tricks” (three goals each) and Megan Gray had a pair of assists as the Red Wolves rolled over the Royals 8-0 at Lynnwood High School. The win was especially good for CHS as it helped them avoid having to play in the opening round of the Northwest District tournament tomorrow night.

“It was great to see how well we started – it did take a few minutes to get settled in but once we found our feet and our touches, we really knocked the ball around,” CHS coach Alex Hickox told us by email. “We were just focused on the task and the players took it upon themselves to show how well we can play. This will be important to rebuild our confidence as we move into our District Tournament later this week.”

Davidson opened the scoring with her first goal eight minutes in, then the Cammarano’s connected, with Melanie scoring off a feed from twin sister Leah, who herself had a goal and two assists, in the 17th. Davidson and Melanie Cammarano connected on a goal in the 27th, then shortly thereafter, the Idaho-bound senior took a feed from Gray and scored her second goal. Leah Cammarano’s goal closed out the half; it came on a penalty kick attempt.

Davidson completed the trick with a goal to open the second half. Becca Warner then pocketed a goal and things closed out in the 64th with Melanie completing her trick, scoring her third tally of the game.

Davidson also had an asssist as did Neo Ehlen. Both goalies – Natalie McCabe and Kayla Hampton – shared in the “clean sheet” shutout in goal for the Red Wolves, although Hampton survived a scare in the second half when Lynnwood was awarded a penalty kick, which she stopped and the Royals then missed the resulting rebound.

Northwest 2A District playoffs, first round (winner to semifinals), Cedarcrest Red Wolves at Burlington-Edison Tigers, Burlington-Edison HS, 1:00 – You know, we just hate this to no end. We really do. Cedarcrest’s girls have had a stellar season in Wesco, finishing 11-4-1, 10-4-1 in league and a Valley Cup win over Mount Si in their lone non-league game, which was good for a fourth-place finish in the conference. They made short work of Lynnwood 8-0 Tuesday with hat tricks by both Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson and Melanie Cammarano moving them up to sixth in the Northwest computer rankings that seed these playoffs. Well, that sixth-place seed earned them a game today against the third-seed team, and sure enough, it’s perennial postseason nemesis B-E, who ended up with the third seed despite them winning the Northwest Conference with a 13-1-1 league record, 14-1-1 overall. Sehome, who played two fewer conference games thanks to some COVID cancels and finished behind B-E in the standings, took a higher RPI berth.

The last time these two teams played in postseason, it was in 2019, and Cedarcrest came out on top as an underdog in that game, which we think they are today. That said, they do have the depth and scoring punch that will keep them in this one. There’s the Idaho-bound Davidson, and the Cammarano’s – both Mel and her twin sister Leah made it on the scoresheet in the game Tuesday – but also keep an eye on freshman Sadie Schaefer, who has been making noise this season on the scoresheet herself.
The playoffs are here. Time for some previews and picks!!

More to come on today’s game/loss in our next post but the season isn’t over as this is a double-elimination tournament and the girls can win their way to 3rd place still.
