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".
