Prep football preview: Peninsula (9-1) vs. Mountain View (7-3)



WHEN, WHERE: 7 p.m. Saturday at McKenzie Stadium


LAST WEEK: Peninsula beat Stadium 44-21; Mountain View beat Bishop Blanchet 63-13

GAME NOTES: Peninsula of Gig Harbor was the No. 2 team from the South Sound Conference after losing 7-3 to Timberline on a late goal-line stand two weeks ago. Expect a quick game. These two teams attack their opponents in a very similar way – running the ball with efficient passing. Like Mountain View, Peninsula like to mix in a lot of different running backs. Cameron Lewis, in his first full game since Week 1 because of an knee injury, rushed for 109 yards last week. Blake Cantu rushed for 84 yards and 3 TDs as Peninsula outrushed Stadium 284-71. Peninsula expect to get RBs Kenny Easton and Debore’ae McClain back this week from injury. The Seahawks have been to the playoffs 11 of the past 12 years, and they are glad Bellevue received a postseason ban. The Wolverines ended Peninsula’s season in the state quarterfinals each of the past three seasons. Peninsula has not allowed a team score more than 21 points in any game this season. Mountain View was the 3A Greater St. Helens League champion. The Thunder have won six straight. Mountain View is back at 3A after two seasons at 4A. QB Andre Scheer was the 3A GSHL offensive MVP after passing for 1,167 yards and 13 TDs and rushing for 873 yards and 12 TDs. Scheer’s favorite target in sophomore Darien Chase, who caught 44 passes for 796 yards and 10 TDs. Glen Perry has rushed 770 yards, including 174 last week.
