When, where: 7 p.m. Friday at District Stadium, Battle Ground (Class 3A Greater St. Helens League game).

Radio: www.klog.com.


Last meeting: Kelso won 28-14 on Oct. 22, 2010 in Kelso.

Last week: Prairie beat Hudson’s Bay 58-0; Kelso lost to Mountain View 45-0.

Kelso (3-4, 2-2): The Hilanders’ three wins have come against teams with a cumulative record of 0-18. … In Kelso’s four losses, the Hilanders have scored 19 total points.

Prairie (4-3, 3-2): QB Colin Seitz returned from a two-week layoff to pass for 436 yards and 7 TDs vs. Hudson’s Bay. … Seitz has passed for 1,519 yards and 22 TDs in five games this season. … Prairie has scored at least 31 games this season in every game Seitz has started. … A win would mean Prairie will finish third in the 3A GSHL or in a three-way tie for second place. … If Prairie finishes third, the Falcons would open the playoffs on the road against the WesCo’s No. 1 team (projected as being fifth-ranked Meadowdale).

Bottom line: Kelso’s running game could give Prairie problems. But the Hilanders simply lack the firepower to keep up with the Falcons.

Columbian’s pick: Prairie.

Fans’ pick: Prairie.
