Everett ground game silences Meadowdale crowd

Herald staff

EDMONDS – For the most part Everett kept Meadowdale’s Homecoming crowd quiet Friday at Edmonds Stadium, winning the Western Conference 3A high school football game 28-8.

It wasn’t until late in the fourth quarter Meadowdale’s crowd would get a chance to cheer, when Winfred Smith caught a 7-yard touchdown pass from Sean Crane. But by that time it was too late.

“They played very good offense against Jackson,” said Everett coach Paul Lawrence. “I thought their physical size would be a factor.”

It was Everett’s second game of the week having defeated Monrie 27-12 on Monday.

“This is the best I’ve felt after a game,” Lawrence said. The victory was especially fulfilling because it was the second in a week for the Seagulls.

Everett’s opening drive took more than eight minutes, stretching out short run after short run.

Everett’s defense limited Meadowdale to 21 yards total offense in the first half, while its offense rolled up 295 yards all rushing. The Seagulls totaled 432 yards in the game, also all rushing.

Meadowdale fumbled on its next possession. Everett recovered and Ben Challman broke through the line and rumbled 43 yards for a touchdown – his second touchdown in the game and his sixth of the week.

Challman ran for 204 yards on 28 carries, his second straight 200-yard game.

Lawrence said Challman likes to pick up what the team calls YAK (yards after contact).

Brian Price ran 17 times for 124 yards. And Chris Daoust had 91 yards on six carries.
