Here is the Week 4 lineup of games:

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


When: 7 p.m. Thursday

Where: Hockinson Stadium, Hockinson HS

Livestream: None

Last week: R.A. Long lost to Hudson’s Bay 20-8; Hockinson lost to Ridgefield 42-7.

Last meeting: Hockinson 48, R.A. Long 6 (2022).

Game notes: Hockinson has won the last nine meetings. R.A. Long lost quarterback TreMayne Jenkins to injury in Week 2. Last week, Nick Niday and Taijon Reagins last week, but the offense has struggled to find consistency. Hockinson is hoping to get off to a better start than in their first three games, when the Hawks trailed at halftime 40-0, 56-0 and 35-0. 

Prediction: Hockinson 20, R.A. Long 15

Montesano (3-0) vs. Castle Rock (1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Thursday

Where: Rocket Stadium, Castle Rock High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Montesano beat Columbia-White Salmon 48-6; Castle Rock beat Elma 28-10.

Last meeting: Montesano 46, Castle Rock 7 (2022).

Game notes: RB Ian Burton stepped up last week with 107 yards and a touchdown against Elma. But Montesano brings a new challenge, as the Bulldogs look as strong as ever. Jaxon Wilson had his own 100-yard game for Montesano last week, and the Bulldogs held Columbia-White Salmon to 57 yards of offense.

Prediction: Montesano 42, Castle Rock 6

Union (0-3) vs. Prairie (0-3)

When: 4 p.m. Friday

Where: District Stadium, Battle Ground High School

Livestream: None

Last week: Union lost to Mountain View 42-27; Prairie lost to Battle Ground 42-7.

Last meeting: Union 40, Prairie 20 (2022).

Game notes: A Week 4 matchup of team’s looking for their first win in a rare District Stadium doubleheader. The big difference between these two teams is Union played three good 3A teams, which will get the Titans ready to get that first win. Prairie needs to rebound from a lopsided loss to Battle Ground.

Prediction: Union 31, Prairie 13

Hanford (0-3) vs. Mountain View (1-1) 

When: 4:30 p.m. Friday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28

Livestream: Evergreen Public Schools YouTube channel

Last week: Hanford lost to Richland 41-13; Mountain View beat Union 42-27.

Last meeting: Hanford 34, Mountain View 28 (2022).

Game notes: Last year’s meeting was a pivotal game for Mountain View. Coming off a big win over Union, the Thunder stumbled at Hanford last year and Aiden Nicholson got hurt. This season, the Thunder are looking to keep good things going with league set to start next season. With Porter Drake rushing for 224 yards last week, the Thunder showed they can move the ball on the ground and through the air.

Prediction: Mountain View 38, Hanford 14

Glacier Peak (1-2) vs. Evergreen (3-0) 

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28

Livestream: Evergreen Public Schools YouTube channel

Last week: Glacier Peak lost to Ferndale 22-16; Evergreen beat Kentlake 43-0.

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: This is the first big test for Evergreen, despite the Grizzlies 1-2 start. Glacier Peak hung tough with ranked 3A team, Ferndale, despite getting just five yards rushing for their standout running back Chrisvin Bonshe. QB Entler passed for 203 yards and two TDs. Evergreen’s Jayden Crace passed for 201 yards and 4 TDs. RB James Bethune had back-to-back 100-yard rushing games. 

Prediction: Glacier Peak 28, Evergreen 20

Camas (2-1) vs. Kelso (1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Schroeder Field, Kelso HS

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Camas beat Lincoln-Tacoma 21-7; Kelso lost to Tumwater 54-0.

Last meeting: Camas 45, Kelso 21 (2022).

Game notes: Camas’ defense has been playing very well this season. And the offense keeps finding new standouts each week. That’s not good news for the Hilanders, who are playing a second straight talented non-league opponent

Prediction: Camas 48, Kelso 6

Woodland (2-1, 1-0) vs. Columbia River (0-3, 0-1)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: John O’Rourke Field, Columbia River High School, Vancouver

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Woodland beat Washougal 33-28; Columbia River lost to Mark Morris 21-3.

Last meeting: Woodland 28, Columbia River 21 (2022).

Game notes: Woodland junior Elijah Andersen was a one-man wrecking crew against Washougal with 152 yards rushing and 181 yards receiving. QB Brett Martynowicz passed for 295 yards. Columbia River had several players out with injury last week, and the Rapids likely will need as many hands on as possible to keep up with the Beavers.

Prediction: Woodland 42, Columbia River 7

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


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Ridgefield Stadium, Ridgefield High School

Livestream: Ridgefield Athletics YouTube channel

Last week: Hudson’s Bay beat R.A. Long 20-8; Ridgefield beat Hockinson 42-7.

Last meeting: Ridgefield 53, Hudson’s Bay 27 (2022).

Game notes: Hudson’s Bay, led by RB Rafeal Bauman, has relied heavily on its rushing attack. And the Eagles have had success, but against teams that are now 0-3, 0-3 and 1-2. Now they get to see how they stack up against a Spudders team that has eyes on contending for the 2A GSHL title. The Spudders like to get a lot of players involved in the offensive attack. 

Prediction: Ridgefield 35, Hudson’s Bay 17

Washougal (2-1, 0-1) vs. Mark Morris (2-1, 1-0)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Longview Memorial Stadium, Longview

Livestream: N2 Media YouTube channel

Last week: Washougal lost to Woodland 33-28; Mark Morris beat Columbia River 21-3.

Last meeting: Washougal 39, Mark Morris 22 (2022).

Game notes: After getting shut out in Week 1, Mark Morris was able to rely on its defense to get wins over a pair of winless foes. But the Monarchs will be severely tested by Washougal and QB Holden Bea. The Panthers are looking to bounce back from a tough loss to Woodland. To do that, the Panthers will need to toughen up its defense.

Prediction: Washougal 38, Mark Morris 12

Heritage (0-3) vs. Battle Ground (3-0)

When: 7:30 p.m. Friday

Where: District Stadium, Battle Ground High School

TV: Cable Ch. 29

Livestream: BGTV YouTube Channel.

Last week: Heritage lost to East Valley-Yakima 56-13; Battle Ground beat Prairie 42-7.

Last meeting: Battle Ground 71, Heritage 0 (2022).

Game notes: Battle Ground continues to impress, sprinting out to its first 3-0 start to the season since 2016. The Tigers have outscored opponents 135-7 Jacob Champine has been a workhorse on offense. He rushed for 154 yards last week. While Heritage has scored 20 points this season, the Timberwolves are still seeking their first touchdown on offense. Heritage has scored on a kickoff return, interception return and fumble recovery.

Prediction: Battle Ground 48, Heritage 6

The Dalles (1-2) vs. Fort Vancouver (1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Kiggins Bowl, Discovery Middle School, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 27.

Livestream: Vancouver Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: The Dalles lost to Goldendale 34-13; Fort Vancouver lost to Stevenson 20-0.

Last meeting: The Dalles 32, Fort Vancouver 0 (2017).

Game notes: Fort Vancouver is coming off a shutout loss, but the Trappers have shown big-play ability in the early season. The Dalles sports a youthful lineup, with nine sophomores in the starting lineup.

Prediction: The Dalles 20, Fort Vancouver 12

Stevenson (3-0) vs. Seton Catholic (3-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Seton Catholic Field, Seton Catholic High School, Vancouver

Livestream: None.

Last week: Stevenson beat Fort Vancouver 20-0; Seton Catholic beat Life Christian 53-34.

Last meeting: Stevenson 40, Seton Catholic 37 (2022).

Game notes: This game will be a battle of styles – Stevenson’s tough defense and Seton Catholic’s high-powered offense. Hudson Holzhauer has been a tackling machine for Stevenson. Stevenson is still playing a hybrid Trico schedule. But if the Bulldogs beat all of the Trico foes on their schedule they will earn a playoff spot. Stevenson is 3-0 so far, and Seton is the last hurdle. 

Prediction: Seton Catholic 27, Stevenson 20

La Center (3-0) vs. Connell (1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Connell High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: La Center beat Kalama 17-6; Connell beat Bonners Ferry (ID) 52-0.

Last meeting: La Center 49, Connell 7 (2022).

Game notes: Houston Coyle played well after moving into the quarterback spot for injured senior Garrett Maunu. With a full week of prep, the Wildcats should be able to get things going. And the offense has been outstanding. Connell got things going last week, and will need a repeat this week.

Prediction: La Center 31, Connell 14

Columbia-White Salmon (0-3) vs. Elma (1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Elma High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Columbia-White Salmon lost to Montesano 48-6; Elma lost to Castle Rock 28-10.

Last meeting: Elma 41, Columbia-White Salmon 7 (2022).

Game notes: Columbia-White hung tough with Montesano for a half, before the powerful Bulldogs pulled away. The Bruins defense has been good. They just need to finish off offensive drives with points. Elma is coming off back-to-back losses.

Prediction: Elma 20, Columbia-White Salmon 13

King’s Way Christian (0-3) vs. Kalama (1-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Chinook Stadium, Kalama High School.

Livestream: None.

Last week: King’s Way Christian lost to Meridian 35-12; Kalama lost to La Center 17-6.

Last meeting: Kalama 44, King’s Way Christian 7 (2017).

Game notes: Kalama’s two losses have come against tough opponents – Woodland and La Center. Junior QB Aiden Brown leads the Chinooks against a young, but improving King’s Way team looking for a first win.

Prediction: Kalama 34, King’s Way Christian 13

Skyview (3-0) vs. Kamiak (0-3)

When: 3 p.m. Saturday

Where: Goddard Stadium, Everett

Livestream: None.

Last week: Skyview beat Bothell 21-7; Kamiak lost to Monroe 53-0.

Last meeting: Skyview 48, Kamiak 20 (2022).

Game notes: Skyview’s defense has two shutouts, and held a talented Bothell team to just seven points. That’s not a good sign for a Kamiak team that has scored just 15 points in three games. 

Prediction: Skyview 42, Kamiak 0
