ABOUT KELSO: Kelso clinches a playoff berth and a home game in Week 10 with a win. A Prairie win over Evergreen also clinches a playoff berth for the Hilanders. A Kelso win and Evergreen win over Prairie gives the Hilanders the No. 1 seed, and Kelso would host Gig Harbor or Central Kitsap next week. A Kelso win and a Prairie win would slot Kelso as the No. 2 seed. Then the Hilanders would host Spanaway Lake. Josh Webb rushed for a school-record 358 yards and three touchdowns last week against Mountain View. That gave Webb 1,195 yards and 16 TDs.
