Week 10 playoff football preview: Camas vs. Bainbridge
When, where: 7 p.m. Friday at Doc Harris Stadium (Class 3A state preliminary game). Radio: None.
Last meeting: First meeting.
Last week: beat Ingraham 44-7.
Players to watch: QB Chris Bell 35-72, 620 yards passing, 6 TDs, 64-425 rushing, 4 TDs; RB Max Wysong 76-414, 4 TDs.
Notes: Bainbridge finished 1-3 and in fourth place in the Metro League Mountain Division. … The Spartans earned playoff berth with win over Ingraham (4-5). … Metro League has not had a good track record in state playoff or preliminary games. … Bainbridge has not reached the state tournament since 2001. … Bainbridge rushed for 274 yards in win over Ingraham.
Last week: beat Kelso 55-0.
Players to watch: QB Tony Gennaro 97-149, 1302 yards, 13 TDs; RB Zack Marshall 109-758, 10 TDs; WR Zack Eagle 20-410, 3 TDs; WR Jonathan Warner 31-394, 5 TDs (Week 9 stats vs. Kelso not included, not reported).
Notes: Camas has won its last four games by an average score of 58-3. … The Papermakers have not allowed a Class 3A opponent to score more than 14 points against them in any game this season. … Last season, Camas opened the playoffs by routing Rainier Beach, another Metro League team.
Bottom line: With four straight running-clock games, the Papermakers haven’t had to keep starters on field in fourth quarter in more than month. The good news is they don’t figure to need the starters in the fourth quarter this week either.
Columbian’s pick: Camas.
Fans’ pick: Camas (83 percent).
