It was a battle of the Wesco 3A South unbeaten teams Friday night, as Meadowdale faced off against Edmonds-Woodway in the annual Jam the Stands cross-town rivalry football game Friday night at Edmonds Stadium. Meadowdale (now 6-0 league, 7-1 overall) came away with a 31-14 victory and bragging rights for another year, plus the top seed for postseason play.
The Warriors (5-1, 5-3) fell behind early in the contest, trailing 17-7 at halftime. But they cut the deficit to 17-14 after Kameron Krall threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to Jaro Rouse with 9:41 left in the third quarter.
Meadowdale responded with a 72-yard drive that resulted in quarterback Drew Tingstad’s 21-yard run, giving the Mavs a 24-14 edge with 9:41 in the third.
The Warriors saw their hopes dwindle following a couple of fumbles and Maverick interceptions, and Meadowdale iced the win on a 2-yard TD from Jashon Butler with 1:44 left in the game.
Tingstad threw for 206 yards and touchdown, and also ran for two TDs. Kela Marshall, the Sound Live Sports Network Player of the Game, had 150 yards on 21 carries. Butler scored two TDs and was responsible for both of Meadowdale’s interceptions.
While Meadowdale earned the win on the football field, Edmonds-Woodway won the Jam the Stands half-time contest, determined by who has the loudest cheering section.
