Prep boys basketball: Shorewood beats Meadowdale, 48-36


After experiencing an emotional high in their last outing (a 66-47 win over rival Edmonds-Woodway on Jan. 18), the Meadowdale Mavericks came back down to earth with a 48-36 setback at the hands of the Shorewood Thunderbirds on Wednesday.

The 36 points scored by the Mavs was the team’s lowest offensive output for a game this season.

Despite the struggle to score, Meadowdale trailed by only three points, 35-32, after three quarters. But the Mavs could only muster four points in the final eight minutes against the T-Birds and were saddled with the loss.

Cole Nelson led Meadowdale with 10 points in the contest; Shorewood’s Skyler Hammer led all scorers with 23 points while the T-Birds’ David Snell recorded 12 points.

The Mavs will travel to Shorecrest Friday for a 7:15 p.m. matchup against the Scots.
