The visiting Shorecrest Scots racked up a season high 533 total yards of offense on Friday night, crushing the Lynnwood Royals in a Wesco South matchup at Edmonds Stadium. The Scots improved their record to 3-1 overall, while the Royals remained winless, at 0-4.

Sammy Seliga pulls in a touchdown pass

Running back Ricardo Ruiz continued his breakout season and did his best Tim Riggins impression, running for three touchdowns and 138 yards on 18 carries, and adding a fourth score on a reception from quarterback Eladio Fountain.

Many contributed to the bounty: Sammy Seliga and Antonio Stillwell pulled in touchdown passes and Cyrus Filoteo, a transfer from Odea this season, added a rushing touchdown to his resume for the Scot's final score in the fourth quarter. Seliga led all receivers with 90 yards on three receptions and Senior Chris Lee continued to be a prime target, with six catches and 83 yards.

#8 Brayden Victor makes an acrobatic interception

Once again, the Scot's defense proved decisive, holding the Royals to only 118 total yards of offense, including a stingy six yards on 24 carries on the ground. James Huffman led with six solo tackles and Senior Brayden Victor stopped an early Lynnwood drive with an acrobatic interception.

Senior receiver and defensive back Rico Dellaguardia should have shown more on the stats line in this game, as he scored twice on highlight-worthy runs from deep in Scot's territory, only to have both touchdowns called back on penalties. That makes four times this season Dellaguardia has found paydirt, only to have the effort nullified by offensive flags.

Don't miss Shorecrest's next game, next Friday night at 7pm at home at Shoreline Stadium. The Scots face their cross town rivals, the Shorewood Thunderbirds, in their annual rivalry with the Rotary Cup at stake.

Is Lynnwood missing players that might be on the team because of other schools coming into the conference? Granite peak, Meadowdale, etc thinning the pool of players?
