Mariner featured prominently on the scoreboard in its previous game, but it had difficulty even getting on the board against Lake Stevens. Mariner came up short against Lake Stevens, falling 14 - 3. Mariner wasn't expected to win (the team is 45 ranks behind in the state), but no loss is easy.
Mariner's defense put the team in a good position heading into the break, holding Lake Stevens to a measly zero points. That put Mariner at a 3 - 0 advantage. With a less-than-desirable zero points in the second half, however, it saw this advantage slip away.
Lake Stevens can chalk up much of its success to the efforts of junior Jackson Grafe, who ran for 100 yards and also punched in one touchdown. Additional support came from Mathew Sevao, a defensive powerhouse who racked up 14 tackles.
The defeat dropped Mariner's record to 1-2. The win bumped Lake Stevens's record up to 2-1.
