Week 9 playoff possibilities for 4A-1A leagues in SW Washington

With one week to play, several football teams know they are going to be playing in the playoffs – Camas, Columbia River, Kelso, Hockinson, Ridgefield, R.A. Long, La Center, Kalama and Castle Rock.

But exact seeding of those nine teams and the playoff placement of three more teams are yet to be determined.

So here’s what you need to know about Week 9 games and their ramifications

4A Greater St. Helens League

Camas (5-0) is the No. 1 seed

Battle Ground (4-2), Mountain View (3-2) and Skyview (3-2) still alive for last two berths

Next week’s games of relevance

Mountain View vs. Evergreen

Skyview vs. Union

  • If Skyview loses: Battle Ground is No. 2, Mountain View is No. 3
  • If Skyview wins and Mountain View loses: Skyview is No. 2, Battle Ground is No. 3
  • If Mountain View and Skyview win: Battle Ground, Mountain View, Skyview meet on Monday, Nov. 2 in Camas for 3-team tiebreaker to determine two seeds. (To see how that will work, see Paul Valencia’s earlier post).

3A Greater St. Helens League

Kelso (2-0) and Columbia River (2-0) have clinched playoff berths

Next week’s game of relevance

Next week’s games of relevance

Hudson’s Bay vs. Ridgefield

  • If Mark Morris wins: Mark Morris is No. 4 seed
  • If Mark Morris loses and Hudson’s Bay loses:  Mark Morris, Woodland, Washougal would play a three-team tiebreaker to decide No. 4 seed
  • If Mark Morris loses and Hudson’s Bay win: A four-team tie would be created between Mark Morris, Woodland, Washougal and Hudson’s Bay. Unsure of how tie would be broken.
