In an exciting Wesco South league home opener, Edmonds-Woodway relied on the running game — and four touchdowns from junior Desmond Young — to earn a 31-27 victory over Mariner High School at Edmonds Stadium Friday night.
Young carried the ball 30 times for 198 yards while Mark Coutee racked up 101 yards on 17 carries.
Another key to the Warriors’ victory was the ability to shut down Marauders’ star running Kei’Varae Russell, holding him to 135 yards on 26 carries.
Edmonds-Woodway was down 27-24 with 22 seconds left when Young scored what turned out to be the winning TD.
The win marks a fresh start for the Warriors, which started out 0-3 in non-conference play. Next, E-W will face Jackson High School at Everett Stadium Friday night at 7 p.m.
