Overall record: 2-1

The Shorecrest Scots led into the third quarter in this Wesco 3A South matchup against Meadowdale, but three second half touchdowns by the visiting Mavericks sealed their 31-13 victory, and improved their record to 2-1 on the season.

Shorecrest was an undefeated 2-0 coming into the night and went to the ground early.

The game's leading rusher, Ricardo Ruiz, rumbled for 104 yards on 23 carries.

But it was two deep strikes to senior Chris Lee that provided the Scots with their touchdowns. In the first quarter, quarterback Eladio Fountain hit Lee in full stride streaking up the west sideline for a 47 yard score. Lee followed up early in the third by pulling in his slant route pass at Shorecrest's own 35 yard line and turning on the afterburners for a 73 yard touchdown. Lee finished with 147 yards receiving on five catches.

It was the Scot's defense that controlled the first half of the game with standout performances from Gavin McFarlane, who led his squad with eight tackles, and sophomore James Huffman, who also recorded eight takedowns. Senior Brayden Victor added four tackles, and had a key fumble recovery in the first quarter to end a Mavericks drive.

Down 13-10 in the second half Meadowdale quarterback Nate Hebert turned the tide when he found receiver Justin Jackson on two 22 yard touchdown throws, and added a third score of his own with a scamper into the end zone from eight yards out.

The Scots are back in action next Friday night, September 22nd, with the early game at 5:00 at Edmonds Stadium against conference rival Lynnwood High School.
