WesCo 3A South Football
9-7-18  Edmonds Stadium
Shorecrest 35 - Edmonds-Woodway 14

If my information is correct, the Shorecrest Highlanders have not beaten Edmonds-Woodway in district competition since 2005. Fortunately for the Scots, streaks are meant to be broken.

The Good Guys wore all white Friday Night as they rode into Edmonds Stadium ready to do battle with the Warriors. Woodway started their season with a crushing 52 - 0 loss to perennial 4A powerhouse Glacier Peak and the coaching staff at Shorecrest had little reason to believe the Scots couldn't hand them their second loss in a row.

Taking the opening kickoff, The Highlanders failed to move the ball during their first offensive series and after just three short plays had to punt. Warrior senior Capassio Cherry (one of WesCo's top running backs his Junior year) seemed to have no problem weaving his way through the Scots' defense, but an errant pass from QB Reed Carr resulted in an interception by Scots' Cornerback, Sammy Seliga.

The first score of the game came after a pass from #19 Eladio Fountain to Junior wide receiver Carlos Torres who found his way into the end zone for a 29 yard scoring play.

Two short minutes later the visitors added seven more when #7 Markus Selzler, who had another big game for the Scots, picked off the Edmonds-Woodway QB and took it to the house. Kicker Gavin Dalziel who can't seem to miss early in the season would add on another PAT and the Scots were soon up 14 - 0 -- a situation in which they've not found themselves in quite some time at Edmonds-Woodway Stadium.

#19 Eladio Fountain has a clear field

With the first quarter winding down, quarterback Eladio Fountain would once again hook up with Carlos Torres for a 43 yard touchdown to put the Scots up 21 - 0.

The only score in the first half for E-W came on a one yard run after several untimely penalties against the Scots kept moving the ball downfield. As the momentum seemed it could be turning in favor of the home team, Scots QB Eladio Fountain threw the perfect touchdown pass, his third of the night, to senior receiver Antonio Stillwell who made a spectacular over the shoulder catch.

The score at halftime Shorecrest 28 - Edmonds-Woodway 7

After an uneventful third quarter of play, the Warriors struck first in the 4th on a 21 yard pass play for a touchdown. A personal foul penalty was called on the Scots defense but eventually declined and the Warriors cut the Scots lead in half.-

Not too long after, the Shorecrest Highlanders would dot the "i" in WIN with a fourth passing touchdown from Fountain to Stillwell, his second of the night and Gavin Dalziel would remain perfect for the season tacking on the PAT.

This year the Scots appear to have all the pieces to put together a successful season, surpassing last years record of 5 and 5.

If the offensive line can stay healthy, open up bigger holes for Cyrus Filiteo and allow him to use his speed and agility, 100 plus yard games for the senior running back could be a regular occurrence come Friday night.

The Scots' biggest challenge so far this season comes this Friday night when they host Everett at Shoreline Stadium.
