Sixth-ranked Meadowdale used the tremendous speed of Giavani Shepard to sprint to a big lead in the first half en route to a 27-7 win over Edmonds-Woodway in front of an overflow crowd at Edmonds Stadium, according to our online news partner The Seattle Times.
Shepard scored three touchdowns in the second quarter to push the Mavericks to 3-0 and drop Edmonds-Woodway to 0-3. He gained 140 yards on 22 carries despite missing several plays due to severe calf cramps, the Times noted.
With the Mavericks leading 21-0 at halftime, Edmonds-Woodway cut the lead to 21-7 with 9:15 left in the third quarter on a 13-yard scoring run by Desmond Young. The TD was set up when sophomore quarterback Davis Giles hit Spiral Horn with a 24-yard pass to the Meadowdale 11, the Times said.
