With a stellar defensive effort — even holding their opponent scoreless in the first quarter — the Mountlake Terrace Hawks overwhelmed the Mariner Marauders 56-30 in a Wesco League non-conference contest played Thursday at Mariner High School.
It was the second straight season that the Hawks held the Marauders to 30 points or less in a game; last year Terrace defeated Mariner 51-25 in a December matchup.
Freshman Cameron Dunn led the Hawks in scoring Thursday with 14; no Marauders reached double-figures in points.
With the win, Terrace lifted its early-season record to 2-1. The Hawks will go for their third victory of the year Wednesday, Dec. 18, when they travel to Bellingham to face the Red Raiders; tipoff is set for 7:15 p.m.
In other Terrace sports Thursday, the Hawks’ boys swim team lost to the Jackson Timberwolves 136-34 in the squad’s 2019-2020 season opener held at the Lynnwood Pool.
