Shorecrest 17 – Everett 33
Friday, 10-6-2017 at Everett Memorial Stadium

Scots overall record:  4-2
Conference record: 1-2

Shorecrest running back Ricardo Ruiz continued his standout season under the bright lights at Everett Memorial on Friday night as his Scots faced the Everett Seagulls in a 3A South matchup.

But even Ruiz’s masterful performance, in which he carried the ball 21 times for 217 yards and a touchdown, wasn’t enough to beat the ‘Gulls. Everett prevailed, mainly with a ground game that produced 391 yards of offense and three touchdowns.

Everett opened the scoring with a touchdown late in the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead. But Shorecrest evened up the score with a 24 yard strike from quarterback Eladio Fountain to Antonio Stillwell.

After Everett scored again with a Christian Ballmer touchdown run from the nine yard line, the Scots responded with a 37 yard romp by Ruiz to go up 14-13. But from then on, it was all Gulls, as Everett’s Dakota Brodel picked off a Fountain pass at his own two and took it 98 yards for the score to go up 19-14, taking a lead that was never relinquished.

Along with Ruiz, Rico Dellaguardia was another bright spot for Shorecrest, with 140 yards receiving on four catches. Ruiz’s total brought him to over 800 yards on the season, with 11 touchdowns.

The Scots are back home at Shoreline Stadium next Friday night, September 22nd, at 8:00 against Snohomish.
