Meadowdale triumphs in defensive struggle

EDMONDS — The first team to score won.

The Meadowdale and Shorecrest football teams played 43 minutes of scoreless football until the Mavericks punched in the only score to take a 7-0 Wesco South victory Friday at Edmonds District Stadium Friday.

The Mavericks 240-pound fullback Ben Shebly blasted his way into the end zone with 4 minutes, 34 seconds remaining to lead Meadowdale to a crictical victory in the meeting of 3A teams.

“In the unwritten 3A league,” Meadowdale coach Mark Stewart said. “We have to be ready to go each and every game.”

The Mavericks, Shorecrest and Lynnwood are playing to become top 3A team in the division and earn a District 1 playoff berth.

The Mavericks (2-2 in league and 2-3 overall) play Lynnwood (2-3, 3-2) next week to determine which team will be in the driver’s seat.

“It is huge for playoffs,” Stewart said of the impending matchup with the Royals. “We control or own destiny to make the playoffs.”

The defenses reigned supreme as both teams combined for only 288 yards of total offense.
