EDMONDS -- Mountlake Terrace head coach Tony Umayum was waiting for both sides of his team to show up.
The fact that special teams did as well was just the cherry on top.
Devante Downs led the offense, rumbling for 124 yards and four touchdowns, and Mason Stone and Jordan Brown were forces on the defense as Mountlake Terrace beat rival Lynnwood 42-0 at Edmonds Stadium.
"Against Stanwood our offense struggled and our defense played OK; against Edmonds-Woodway our offense played well and the defense didn't hold up their end of the bargain," Umayum said. "So tonight was the first time we were really able to put both sides together.
"And our kicking game improved as well," Umayum added with a laugh.
Place-kicker Michael Jensen was 4-for-4 on extra points and even nailed a 23-yard field goal that was scrubbed because of a roughing the kicker call. Terrace scored a touchdown two plays later. Aiden Murray, who handles the kickoffs, had a great game as well, averaging nearly 50 yards a kickoff on his seven kicks.
The kicking game wasn't the only part of special teams that had a good game. Stone returned a third-quarter Lynnwood punt for a touchdown.
Lynnwood lineman and UW-commit Andrew Basham didn't play because he missed school during the week due to sickness, according to Lynnwood head coach Adam Fermstad.
