From the Shoreline Area News Fans of Shorecrest Division

The Shorecrest Scots dropped their season opener to  Lynnwood Friday night by a 26-6 count, at Shoreline Stadium.

Lynnwood wins over the Scots have been as rare as the blue moon the game was played under, but the Royals managed to ride the accurate passing arm of senior QB Morgan Skelton, who threw three TD passes.

The Scots got on the board first with just over three minutes to play in the first quarter, when signal-caller, Nic Hendricks, electrified the crowd with a 96 yard TD run on a keeper. WR Aaron Kelly threw the key block near midfield that paved the way for the season's first score for the green and gold. Sam Schober's  PAT attempt was no good.

Lynnwood responded with a touchdown on their next possession, scoring on the first play of the second quarter. Skelton's perfect pass to David Nguyen from 24 yards evened the score. The PAT attempt failed, and the teams went into the locker room tied at 6-6.

The Royals took the lead for good midway in the third quarter on another Skelton-to-Nguyen TD pass, this one on a fourth down play at the Scots 7. Again, the PAT attempt failed.

The Scots had a chance to take the lead early in the fourth quarter when Keelan Bailey fell on a Royals' fumble on Lynnwood's 19, but the Royals' inspired defense stiffened and the Scots were denied.

Two late Royals scores put the final at 26-6.

Shorecrest hosts Cascade next Friday at 7pm.
