Prep football preview: Washougal vs. Ridgefield
2A Greater St. Helens League game
When, where: 7 p.m. Friday; Ridgefield Stadium, Ridgefield HS, Ridgefield
Last week: Washougal lost to White Salmon 13-0; Ridgefield beat Kalama 14-12
Last meeting: Washougal won 26-14 in 2014.
Players to watch: Washougal RB Kade Coons was the Panthers’ leading rusher last week; Ridgefield RB Taylor Nolan rushed for a 50-yard touchdown last week vs. Kalama.
Game notes: These are two teams cut from a similar form. Both teams play solid defense and run the ball. … The Spudders picked off a pass on a potential game-tying two-point conversion late against Kalama. … After rolling to a 29-0 win over Stevenson in Week 1, Washougal didn’t score last week as turnovers thwarted drives and big plays.
The Prep Proletariat says: “Another close matchup. And with close matchups, turnovers and miscues will play a key role. And that’s why we like the Spudders. RIDGEFIELD 19, WASHOUGAL 13.”
