Scots win football tiebreaker

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Shorecrest qualified for a quad-district football playoff game next weekend at Juanita by winning a Western Conference 3A tiebreaker Saturday at Shoreline Stadium.

The Scots defeated Everett in the second game of the Wesco 3A tiebreaker, sending Shorecrest (4-4 overall, 4-3 Wesco 3A) to its first postseason game since 2006.

The tiebreaker game was necessary because Shorecrest, Everett and Mountlake Terrace had tied for third in the Wesco 3A, with all having 4-3 regular-season league records.

Everett (5-3, 4-3) defeated Mountlake Terrace (6-3, 4-3) in the first Saturday game and qualified for a Tuesday qualifying game against Mount Vernon, the second-place 3A team from the Northwest League, at Everett Memorial Stadium, with the Tuesday winner advancing to a quad-district game against a team from the Sea-King District (Kingco and Metro leagues), the West Central District (Narrows, Seamount and South Puget Sound leagues) or the Southwest District (Greater Saint Helen's and Pacific leagues).

The tiebreaker was played as a series of mini-games, in which each team starts with the ball on the 25-yard-line, and continues until one team scores and the other doesn’t.

Had Everett defeated Shorecrest in the second game, the Scots and Mountlake Terrace would have played a third game for the right to play Tuesday.

Instead, Shorecrest advances as the No. 3 Wesco seed to the quad-district game against Juanita of the Kingco 3A League.

Shorecrest took the ball to start the game and, despite a false start, advanced to the 12-yard line. On second-and-7, junior quarterback Ted Hammond passed to a wide-open Dillon Baker over the middle for a touchdown.

Shorecrest set up to kick an extra point but instead faked the kick and Michael Johnson passed to Keegan Small in the end zone to make it 8-0.

Everett failed to answer when a pass fell incomplete on the final play.
