The Meadowdale Mavericks had no answers for the Shorewood Thunderbirds’ rushing game Friday night as the T-Birds ran away with a 38-7 victory in a 3A Wesco League South Conference contest at Shoreline Stadium.
Shorewood’s Robert Banks rushed for two first-half touchdowns before the Mavs got on the scoreboard with a Nate Hebert 5-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter. But down 14-7 would be as close as Meadowdale would get as the Thunderbirds added a field goal before halftime and then two more touchdowns in the third quarter to coast to the lopsided victory.
Meadowdale (0-1 in 3A Wesco League South Conference, 0-2 overall) will try for their first victory of the season when then face the Lynnwood Royals at Edmonds Stadium on Friday, Sept. 14; kickoff is slated for 8 p.m.
