The game turned out to be a honey for the home Hawks.
Scoring three times in the bottom of the first inning without the benefit of a hit, Mountlake Terrace had all the runs they needed to defeat the T-Birds 3-1 at Mountlake Terrace High School.
Michael Hunt, Alex Hussey and Zayn Phillips all picked up RBI base-on-balls in the first inning for the Hawks, giving the squad a lead they would not relinquish. Terrace had just one hit in the game – a Jesse Prothero single – but it didn’t matter as strong pitching by Hawk Jason Shevenko kept Shorewood off the scoreboard. Shevenko threw a complete game three-hitter with seven strikeouts to earn the victory.
The T-Birds could muster only four singles and a base-on-balls against Shevenko.
Friday’s win for Terrace came after close losses to the T-Birds in the first two games of their series; on Wednesday Shorewood scored two runs in their last at bat to snatch a win away from the Hawks 3-2.
The loss Friday was the first for Shorewood this season after opening with 11 straight victories.
In other MTHS action on Friday, the Hawk softball team won their fourth game-in-a-row with a 17-1 thumping of the Oak Harbor Wildcats in five innings. Terrace has outscored their opponents 42-7 during their current winning streak.
At Lynnwood High School, the Terrace boys soccer team defeated the Lynnwood Royals 7-1 behind a hat trick by senior Alec Somers.
