An overflow crowd enjoyed dry weather and a highly festive atmosphere as the Scots jumped out to a 20-0 first quarter lead, and extended it to 27-0 on the first play of the second stanza, a lead which they took to the locker room at halftime. Unofficially, the Scots outgained the T-Birds 209-24.

At half time both teams bands, flag teams, drill teams,
 and cheer squads entertained the fans.

Both schools' bands then took the field and filled the night air with music, playing both teams' fight songs together.

The highlight of the night for some came when a multitude of old Shoreline High Spartans got to stand and sing the fight song from their beloved alma mater for the first time in over 30 years.

Damp eyes and lumpy throats seemed to afflict many wearing blue and gold in the crowd.

The bands left the field and all gathered in front of Rod Mar, an official Photographer of the Seahawks, for the annual group photo.

The T-Birds got on the scoreboard following a SC turnover in the third quarter when Ryan Farley boomed an impressive 44-yard field goal for SW's only points of the night.

Shorecrest coach Brandon Christianson said "The guys were hungry for a win. It didn't matter what happened on the field, they were going to make sure they did what they had to do to win. It was an outstanding defensive effort for us, holding them to minus-14 yards rushing for the game".
