The first home game of the season against one of Mead’s biggest rivals, Skyline, was an amazing game to watch, especially considering the final score of a 42-14 win.

“It was definitely good that Skyline was our first home game because it brought a lot of people to help us get started in the season,” explained Devon Edwards (’20) #20. 

The first quarter started with Jake Wachter (’20)  #23 scoring a 50-yard touchdown, followed by Nick Murphy (’22) #2 securing the extra point setting the scoreboard to 14-0.

The second quarter involved three touchdowns and two extra points. Devon Edwards (’20) #20 ran for an 86-yard touchdown, making Mead’s lead 27-0.

In the third quarter, quarterback Brady Veltien (’20) #8 threw a great pass to Trey Ward (’20) #5  to complete another touchdown. In the same quarter, Wachter scored a 56-yard touchdown with the help of  Murphy yet again upping the score to 42-0

As the buzzer went off, MHS students flooded the field to join the players as the Mead fight song played in the background. Once again, giving the Mead Mavericks another win, leaving the scoreboard at 42-0.

“It felt amazing to beat Skyline after the loss last year” expressed Jeremiah Strizki  #34 (’22).
