Here are preview caps for Week 6 with predictions and links to livestreams (don’t get caught getting scammed; these have all been validated).

Camas (2-3) vs. Evergreen (5-0)

When: 4:30 p.m. Friday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

What: Non-league game.

Livestream: None.

Last week: Camas beat Kamiak 56-8; Evergreen beat Mountain View 20-14.

Last meeting: Camas 62, Evergreen 21, Sept. 26, 2015

Game notes: Camas has posted back-to-back impressive wins after three losses against highly-ranked opponents. QB Taylor Ioane is coming off a game in which he completed all 16 of his pass attempts, six for touchdowns to six different receivers. Evergreen is coming off one its biggest wins in recent seasons. Although 5-0, the Plainsmen will be facing their biggest test – by far – against Camas.

Prediction: Camas 49, Evergreen 20


Stanwood (5-0) vs. Union (2-3)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

What: Non-league game.

Livestream: None.

Last week: Stanwood beat Arlington 37-6; Union beat Coeur d’Alene 40-20.

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: Stanwood posted its first winning season in 15 years in 2021 and reached the 3A state playoffs for the first time in 25 years. The Spartans have kept things going this season, beating rival Arlington 37-6 last week, Behind its Wing-T offense, Stanwood outgained Arlington 507-207 in yards. Ryder Baumgartner rushed for 246 yards. Playing a schedule against three 3A Wesco teams plus 2A Lakewood, it is difficult to say how good Stanwood is. Union’s defensive struggles have come against the pass, so it will be interesting to see how the Titans deal with Stanwood’s run-heavy attack. 

Prediction: Union 24, Stanwood 20


Kentwood (1-4) vs. Skyview (4-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Kiggins Bowl, Vancouver

What: Non-league

TV: Cable Ch. 29

Livestream: None live. A delayed broadcast will be posted to Vancouver Public Schools YouTube channel after the game is over.

Last week: Kentwood beat Mt. Rainier 42-28; Skyview beat Heritage 51-0.

Last meeting: Skyview 34, Kentwood 7, Nov. 11, 2011

Game notes: Kentwood got its first win of the season after a difficult early-season schedule against Lakes, Peninsula and Kennedy Catholic. Those were all lopsided losses for the Conquerors. Skyview was able to rest most of its starters last week against Heritage. The Storm will look to fine tune some things this week as they prepare for a big league showdown next week against Camas.

Prediction: Skyview 42, Kentwood 13


Mountain View (2-3, 0-1) vs. Prairie (3-2, 0-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: District Stadium, Battle Ground HS, Battle Ground

What: 3A Greater St. Helens League game

TV: Cable Ch. 28.

Livestream: BG27 TV YouTube channel.

Last week: Mountain View lost to Evergreen 20-14; Prairie lost to Kelso 28-20.

Last meeting: Mountain View 17, Prairie 14, Oct. 15, 2021.

Game notes: Two weeks into league play, and both teams have a big matchup this week. A loss will not eliminate either team from the playoff chase, but it will make that pursuit take a very narrow path. The only way the loser of this game would be able to reach the Week 10 playoffs is to be part of a three-team tiebreaker for second place in the 3A GSHL. The winner of this game would be able to control its path to the playoffs. Prairie has not beaten Mountain View since 2008. That came in Adam Mathieson’s very first game as Mountain View coach. However, each of the last three matchups between the two games have been very, very close.

Prediction: Mountain View 27, Prairie 22


Heritage (0-5, 0-1) vs. Kelso (3-2, 1-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Schroeder Field, Kelso HS, Kelso

What: 3A Greater St. Helens League game

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Heritage lost to Skyview 51-0; Kelso beat Prairie 28-20.

Last meeting: Kelso 56, Heritage 12, Oct. 22, 2021.

Game notes: Heritage is 0-5 and now enters league play. It’s been a difficult season for the Timberwolves, and it doesn’t figure to get any easier the rest of the way. Kelso’s run game and defense should power the Hilanders as they get ready for a matchup next week with Mountain View.

Prediction: Kelso 48, Heritage 0.


Hockinson (2-3, 1-2) vs. Columbia River (2-3, 1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: John O’Rourke Field, Columbia River HS, Vancouver

What: 2A Greater St. Helens League game

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Hockinson lost to Woodland 29-27; Columbia River beat R.A. Long 28-7

Last meeting: Hockinson 31, Columbia River 6, Oct. 15, 2021.

Game notes: Both teams have lost to Woodland in the past two weeks. That fact means the loser of this game will find itself in a very, very difficult position to obtain a playoff spot. Hockinson still has games against Mark Morris and Washougal on its schedule. Columbia River still has Ridgefield and Washougal on the schedule. Hockinson is 6-0 against River ever since River joined the 2A GSHL.

Prediction: Hockinson 28, Columbia River 13


R.A. Long (0-5, 0-3) vs. Woodland (3-2, 2-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Beaver Stadium, Woodland HS, Woodland

What: 2A Greater St. Helens League game

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: R.A. Long lost to Columbia River 28-7; Woodland beat Hockinson 29-27.

Last meeting: Woodland 8, R.A. Long 7, Oct., 8, 2021.

Game notes: R.A. Long has struggled to stop the run this season, and Woodland has shown it can run the ball with Elijah Andersen and Keaton Northcut. If the Beavers win this week, they could be in a position to secure a playoff spot next with a win over Hudson’s Bay and a loss next week by the winner of this week’s Hockinson-Columbia River game. Hockinson plays Mark Morris next week, and River plays Ridgefield. 

Prediction: Woodland 41, R.A. Long 17


Ridgefield (2-3, 2-1) vs. Mark Morris (4-1, 2-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Longview Memorial Stadium, Longview.

What: 2A Greater St. Helens League game

Livestream: N2 Media (subscription required).

Last week: Ridgefield lost to Washougal 34-27; Mark Morris beat Hudson’s Bay 50-12.

Last meeting: Ridgefield 42, Mark Morris 0, Oct. 8, 2021.

Game notes: At the very least, this game will be pivotal in determining the No. 2 seed from the league to the playoffs. At best, the winner remains in the hunt for the league title – but that would require the winner to leapfrog Washougal in the standings. Deacon Dietz returned to full action last week after being held back in the loss to Washougal in Week 3. He rushed for 115 yards last week. The Monarchs rushed for 304 yards as a team. Ridgefield rushed for nearly 200 yards against Washougal.  

Prediction: Ridgefield 24, Mark Morris 20


Hudson’s Bay (2-3, 1-2) vs. Washougal (4-1, 3-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Fishback Stadium, Washougal HS, Washougal.

What: 2A Greater St. Helens League game

Livestream: None.

Last week: Hudson’s Bay lost to Mark Morris 50-12; Washougal beat Ridgefield 34-27.

Last meeting: Washougal 27, Hudson’s Bay 16, Oct. 8, 2021.

Game notes: Washougal is all alone atop the league standings at 3-0 and has a win over all three teams that sit 2-1. But the competitive nature of the 2A GSHL this season means that any team can be a threat if given the opportunity. The Panthers need to avoid a letdown after their thrilling win over Ridgefield last week. Bay has the talent to make teams pay for mistakes. However, if Washougal can jump to an early lead, the Eagles will have a harder time if forced to go pass-heavy.

Prediction: Washougal 35, Hudson’s Bay 14


King’s Way Christian (2-2, 0-1) vs. Columbia-White Salmon (0-5, 0-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Columbia HS, White Salmon

What: 1A Trico League game

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: King’s Way Christian lost to La Center 46-0; Columbia-White Salmon lost to Seton Catholic 45-21.

Last meeting: King’s Way Christian 26, Columbia-White Salmon 16, Oct. 18, 2019.

Game notes: After opening the season with back-to-back wins, King’s Way Christian has been outscored 96-13 in its last two games. The Knights have been battling injuries. If they can get QB Brayden Schiefer back, the offense can get back on track. And that might be enough to keep Columbia at bay. The Bruins’ 21 points last week was a season high. However, one touchdown came on a 98-yard interception return. The other came late when the game was out of reach. 

Prediction: King’s Way Christian 34, Columbia-White Salmon 14


Seton Catholic (3-2, 1-0) vs. Castle Rock (4-1, 1-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Castle Rock HS, Castle Rock

What: Trico League game.

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Seton Catholic beat Columbia-White Salmon 45-21; Castle Rock beat Fort Vancouver 47-25.

Last meeting: Castle Rock 42, Seton Catholic 40, Oct. 15, 2021.

Game notes: Castle Rock is 8-0 all-time against Seton Catholic, but the Cougars nearly pulled off an upset last week. This season, the matchup may decide which program will challenge La Center for the Trico League title. Seton freshman QB Kolten Gesser threw for 382 yards and five touchdowns last week. RB Joe Callerame rushed for 156 yards, 130 of which came in the first half. The Cougars also allowed 257 rushing yards last season. Castle Rock’s Stephen Ibsen threw for 173 yards and rushed for 108 last week. The Rockets also allowed 331 passing yards to Fort last week, although much of that came after Castle Rock built a 40-7 lead.  

Prediction: Castle Rock 33, Seton Catholic 28


Adna (3-2, 1-0) vs. Stevenson (2-3, 0-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Stevenson HS, Stevenson

What: Central 2B League game

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Adna beat Wahkiakum 12-7; Stevenson lost to Kalama 30-20.

Last meeting: Adna 47, Stevenson 6, Oct. 8, 2021.

Game notes: After putting up big offensive numbers in games against Fort Vancouver and Seton Catholic, Stevenson again struggled to move the ball consistently last week against Kalama. Adna got routed by top-ranked 2B teams Napavine and Raymond/South Bend, but the Pirates’ defense led the way to their three wins.

Prediction: Adna 26, Stevenson 19


Battle Ground (2-3) vs. Lakes (4-0)

When: Noon, Saturday

Where: Harry Lang Stadium, Clover Park HS, Lakewood

What: Non-league game.

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Battle Ground lost to Mount Tahoma 54-41; Lakes beat Silas 70-28

Last meeting: First meeting

Game notes: Battle Ground Kameron Spencer is coming off a huge game against Mount Tahoma, completing 30 of 54 passes for 440 yards and six touchdowns. However, the Tigers had an even harder time stopping Mount Tahoma, which scored touchdowns on its first seven possessions. Facing an undefeated Lakes team that is averaging 50 points a game will be another test for the Battle Ground defense.

Prediction: Lakes 54, Battle Ground 14


La Center (4-1) vs. Mount Baker (3-2)

When: 2 p.m. Saturday

Where: Bob Tisdale Field, Mount Baker HS, Deming

What: Non-league game.

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: La Center beat King’s Way Christian 46-0; Mount Baker beat Blaine 68-16.

Last meeting: La Center 42, Mount Baker 24, Nov. 10, 2017.

Game notes: The La Center has been rolling the past three weeks. The Wildcats have averaged 48 points in wins over Kalama, Connell and King’s Way Christian. La Center might need some similar production to get past a tough Mount Baker team that scored 68 last week. The Mounties’ two losses have come to Sehome (ranked No. 10 at 2A) and Toppenish (ranked No. 6 at 1A). 

Prediction: La Center 28, Mount Baker 26


Foss (1-4) vs. Fort Vancouver (1-4)

When: 4 p.m. Saturday

Where: Fort Vancouver HS, Vancouver

What: Non-league game.

Livestream: None.

Last week: Foss lost to Meadowdale 43-7; Fort Vancouver lost to Castle Rock 47-25.

Last meeting: Foss 13, Fort Vancouver 3, Nov. 9, 1979.

Game notes: Instead of playing at Kiggins Bowl, Fort Vancouver will play Foss on its on-campus field. Fort is the third Clark County team on the Falcons’ schedule this season. Foss lost to Columbia River 34-6 in Week 1, scoring a late touchdown, and then fell to Evergreen 49-0 in Week 4. Fort QB Kaeleb Cvitkovich passed for 331 yards and three touchdowns last week. He also had a TD run. Evan Mendez had 10 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns.

Prediction: Fort Vancouver 33, Foss 25
