Prep football: Second-half comeback gives Hawks 20-19 win over Royals

Freshman Zaveon Jones rushed for 120 yards on 23 carries and Senior Ethan Dunne added 83 yards on 16 carries as the Mountlake Terrace Hawks erased a second-half, 13-point deficit to defeat Lynnwood 20-19 and pick up their only victory of the year on the final night of the season.

Mountlake Terrace entered the game with a record of 0-4 and had been outscored by a combined total of 121-12 in those losses. It appeared as though the Hawks were heading for a fifth defeat when Royals junior running back Anthony Hooker scored his second touchdown in the third quarter to give Lynnwood a 19-6 lead.

The Hawks, however, weren’t ready to surrender. Jones rushed for an 8-yard TD a few minutes later to reduce Lynnwood lead to 19-12 heading into the final quarter. MTHS senior Ethan Dunne then scored on an 11-yard run with 6:41 remaining cutting the Royals’ lead to 1. Terrace decided to go for the 2-point conversion rather than attempt to kick, an area that the Hawks have struggled with all season. Jones was successful with a run up the middle, giving Mountlake Terrace the 20-19 lead.

The Hawks clinched the victory a few minutes later when senior Jai Nath forced a quarterback fumble and freshman Adam Wallis recovered the ball to preserve the victory for Mountlake Terrace.

Lynnwood sophomore quarterback Deon Baker had nine carries for 65 yards, including a touchdown run. Junior running back Anthony Hooker had 16 carries for 62 yards and two touchdowns for the Royals.

Both teams finish the season with 1-4 records. Both schools will return the majority of their players in the fall as Lynnwood only graduates seven seniors while Mountlake Terrace has 10 seniors.
