Snohomish 42 - Shorecrest 7
Overall record:  4-3
Conference record: 1-3

Things started out swimmingly for the Scots: Shorecrest kicked off to open the game and Ameer Haq dove on a loose ball that was bouncing on the Snohomish side of the field to take possession for his team.

Later in the first quarter, on the Panther's first drive, there was another bounce that went the home team's way. Snohomish QB Langdon Ordill's pass, which was collected by his receiver Trenton Brown at the Scot's 12 yard line, was fumbled when Jacob Cruz and James Huffman hammered Brown on the five, and the ball was recovered in the end zone by Gavin McFarlane for another turnover and a touchback.

But Shorecrest failed to capitalize on those early turnovers, and by halftime the home team was facing a 35-0 deficit. Snohomish running back Keegan Stich added three touchdowns to his stellar season's stats and led all runners with 184 yards.

Ricardo Ruiz finished with 92 yards for the Scots, which puts his total of 897 yards so far this season among the leaders in the conference. His 45 scoring run, a counter trap led by pulling right guard Jackson Jones, and assisted by a well-executed downfield block by Antonio Stillwell, was the offensive highlight of the night for Shorecrest.

Shorecrest's next game is Homecoming! Come root on the Scots this Friday night, at 5:00pm at Shoreline Stadium as they face the Warriors of Edmonds Woodway.
