Much to the delight of its homecoming game crowd, the Meadowdale Mavericks put together a big first half against the visiting Everett Seagulls and then coasted to an easy victory.
The Mavs stampeded past the Seagulls 48-14 in a 3A Wesco League South Conference contest played Friday at Edmonds District Stadium.
Quarterback Hunter Moen threw three first-half touchdown passes and ran for a fourth to lead Meadowdale to the win. Nate Hebert ran for two TDs to complete the Mavs scoring.
The Meadowdale defense gave up two touchdowns in the contest, a second quarter 10-yard run by Everett’s Christian Balmer and a 1-yard run by the Seagulls’ Lester Howard during a second half played with the “mercy rule” running clock.
With the win, Meadowdale evened its overall record to 3-3, lifted its 3A Wesco League South Conference mark to 3-1 and remained tied for second place in the conference standings with the Shorewood Thunderbirds.
