The Shorewood T-Birds took advantage of numerous Shorecrest mistakes in scoring 28 unanswered points in the second half to defeat the Scots 33-7 in the 38th annual Rotary Cup Game at Shoreline Stadium Friday night.

SW quarterback Aaron Okamura threw one TD pass and ran for another as the T-Birds won their second consecutive Rotary Cup.

After Isaac Whitaker's 35-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining in the first half gave the T-Birds a 3-0 halftime lead, Reed Kopec hauled in a 15-yard TD pass from Okamura midway in the third quarter. Hassan Kone tacked on a 13-yard run to paydirt two minutes later to close the scoring in the third quarter.

Versatile Bostyn Vordahl ran the ball in on an end sweep on the final quarter's first play to extend the Shorewood lead to 24-0. With 9:20 to play, Okamura scampered in from 33 yards to make it 31-0.

Back-up Scots quarterback Jack Koss got the Scots on the board with a 37-yard TD pass to Brantle Harris, preventing a shutout.

The T-Birds scored a safety with less than two minutes to play to end the scoring at 33-7.
