Week 6 prep football previews with predictions and livestream links

Missing two games each week seems to be the pattern this season after we went 11-2 in Week 5 games. Still, our season pick percentage keeps going up after moving to 69-14 (83.1 percent).

Picks should get a big tougher to call as key matchups come up in league play.

Many schools offer livestream broadcasts of their home games, either free or for a fee. But fans should be aware of scammers using fake links to livestreams to lure in fans. All livestream links here are verified.

For schools that broadcast games on the NFHS Network, a subscription is required to watch games. Subscriptions cost $11.99 a month, or $79.99 a year. 

Here is the Week 6 lineup of games:

Lakes (4-1) vs. Battle Ground (5-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: District Stadium, Battle Ground High School

TV: Cable Ch. 28

Livestream: BGTV YouTube Channel.

Last week: Lakes beat Silas 42-0; Battle Ground beat Mount Tahoma 24-7.

Last meeting: Lakes 52, Battle Ground 7 (2022).

Game notes: With a win last week, Battle Ground is 5-0 for the first time since 2012. That season the Tigers lost their last four. The last time the Tigers went 6-0 was 1991. To get to 5-0 this year, Battle Ground has had to avenge some losses from last season. None was more lopsided than the loss to Lakes last season. To avenge that loss will show how far the Tigers have come. 

Prediction: Battle Ground 27, Lakes 21

Evergreen (3-2) vs. Camas (4-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Doc Harris Stadium, Camas

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Evergreen lost to Mountain View 39-27; Camas beat Kamiak 53-0.

Last meeting: Camas 42, Evergreen 14 (2022).

Game notes: Division I commit Fox Crader missed last week’s game with an injury for Evergreen. His absence left a noticeable hole in the line. Now, the Plainsmen face a strong Camas squad that has won four in a row. 

Prediction: Camas 41, Evergreen 13

Union (1-4) vs. Stanwood (3-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Bob Larson Stadium, Stanwood HS, Stanwood

Livestream: Twin Cities Sports Network.

Last week: Union lost to Coeur d’Alene (ID) 40-10; Stanwood lost to Arlington 42-7.

Last meeting: Stanwood 69, Union 47 (2022).

Game notes: In the two teams’ meeting last season, Union had no answer to slow down Stanwood’s Wing-T run game. Standout Ryder Bumgarner has left for the University of Washington, but the Spartans’ game remains potent. Union gave up 300 rushing yards to Mountain View in Week 3.

Prediction: Stanwood 40, Union 20

Kelso (1-4, 0-1) vs. Heritage (0-5, 0-0)


When: 4:30 p.m. Friday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28.

Livestream: Evergreen Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Kelso lost to Prairie 36-33; Heritage lost to Skyview 59-0.

Last meeting: Kelso 48, Heritage 0 (2022).

Game notes: Kelso is trying to rebound from a heartbreaker last week. The Hilanders gave up a touchdown and then a tying two-point conversion with 1:03 left. Then Kelso fumbled at midfield with 45 seconds to go, although replays appeared to indicate that the runner was down before the fumble came out. Now Kelso will look to fix some things before facing Mountain View next week.

Prediction: Kelso 48, Heritage 0

Prairie (1-4, 1-0) vs. Mountain View (4-1, 1-0) 


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28.

Livestream: Evergreen Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Prairie beat Kelso 36-33; Mountain View beat Evergreen 39-27.

Last meeting: Mountain View 37, Prairie 27 (2022).

Game notes: This game features two of the top running backs in the region. Prairie’s Pierson Lameh leads the region with 700 yards rushing, after gaining 333 yards in a win over Kelso. Porter Drake has rushed for 559 yards, but averages 8.8 yards a carry, compared to about 6.5 for Lameh. Where Mountain View may have the edge is at quarterback, where Cash Cook has passed for 993 yards. And the Thunder defense has been playing well.

Prediction: Mountain View 38, Prairie 20

Washougal (3-2, 1-2) vs. Hudson’s Bay (5-0, 3-0)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Kiggins Bowl, Discovery MS, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 27

Livestream: Vancouver Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Washougal lost to Ridgefield 38-28; Hudson’s Bay beat Mark Morris 28-14.

Last meeting: Washougal 40, Hudson’s Bay 6 (2022).

Game notes: Washougal gave up 301 rushing yards to Ridgefield last week. Now the Panthers face a Bay team that loves to run the ball. If the Eagles can grind out yards on the ground, they can eat up the clock and keep Holden Bea off the field. But if Bea can break some big plays, either through the air or on the ground, that could give the Panthers the edge, especially if they can jump out to an early lead.

Prediction: Hudson’s Bay 24, Washougal 21

Columbia River (2-3, 2-1) vs. Hockinson (1-4, 1-2)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Hockinson Stadium, Hockinson High School

Livestream: None.

Last week: Columbia River beat R.A. Long 45-13; Hockinson lost to Woodland 40-21.

Last meeting: Columbia River 34, Hockinson 7 (2022).

Game notes: Hockinson faced a workhorse in the backfield in Woodland’s Elijah Andersen. The Hawks will face another in River RB Chris Parkin. Now River also have starting QB Brayden Schiefer back and getting healthier. After opening the season 0-3, the Rapids now look like a playoff contender. But they’ll need to get past the young Hawks as the schedule gets much tougher in the coming weeks. 

Prediction: Columbia River 28, Hockinson 17

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


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Ridgefield Stadium, Ridgefield High School.

Livestream: Ridgefield Athletics YouTube channel.

Last week: Mark Morris lost to Hudson’s Bay 28-14; Ridgefield beat Washougal 38-28.

Last meeting: Mark Morris 20, Ridgefield 7 (2022).

Game notes: Mark Morris will need its offense to step up big time to keep pace with the potent Spudders. Ridgefield RB Cly Stephens has back-to-back 100-yard rushing games, and Rocco Wright went over the century mark last week. QB Brayden Malella threw three TD passes, too. It was a complete effort to beat Washougal, and if the Spudders match that effort, Mark Morris will have a hard time keeping up.

Prediction: Ridgefield 31, Mark Morris 7

Woodland (3-2, 2-1) vs. R.A. Long (1-4, 0-3)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Longview Memorial Stadium, Longview

Livestream: N2 Media YouTube channel

Last week: Woodland beat Hockinson 40-21; R.A. Long lost to Columbia River 45-13.

Last meeting: Woodland 52, R.A. Long 21 (2022).

Game notes: Consistency is the big knock on R.A. Long. The Lumberjacks had an impressive opening drive against Columbia River last week, but then could not match that the rest of the game, allowing the Rapids to pull away. If you want consistency, Elijah Andersen has been a consistent producer on offense for Woodland, running the ball and catching the ball.

Prediction: Woodland 42, R.A. Long 13

Castle Rock (2-3, 1-0) vs. Seton Catholic (5-0, 2-0)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

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

Livestream: None.

Last week: Castle Rock beat Fort Vancouver 46-0; Seton Catholic beat Columbia-White Salmon 35-20.

Last meeting: Castle Rock 29, Seton Catholic 6 (2022).

Game notes: It’s been a season of firsts at Seton Catholic. The Cougars are off to their first 5-0 start in school history. In fact, Seton has never won more than five games in any of the previous 10 seasons of football. Last week, Seton moved into the top 10 in Class 1A in the Associated Press rankings. To get to 6-0, the Cougars will need to accomplish another first – beat Castle Rock. The Rockets are 9-0 against Seton. 

Prediction: Seton Catholic 28, Castle Rock 23

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


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Preece Memorial Stadium, King’s Way Christian, Hazel Dell

Livestream: King’s Way Christian Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Columbia-White Salmon lost to Seton Catholic 35-20; King’s Way Christian lost to La Center 42-6.

Last meeting: King’s Way Christian 32, Columbia-White Salmon 7 (2022).

Game notes: A league battle between two teams seeking a first win of 2023. Columbia-White Salmon have lost its last 15. But if the Bruins can run the ball like they did last week against Seton, that streak could end. The Bruins grounded up 328 yards last week, with Landon Castilla leading the way with 174. The Bruins trailed 21-20 to Seton before the Cougars pulled away. Injuries have thinned out King’s Way Christian, which already had a young roster.

Prediction: Columbia-White Salmon 20, King’s Way Christian 7

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

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Adna High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Stevenson lost to Kalama 36-7; Adna was idle.

Last meeting: Adna 33, Stevenson 0 (2022).

Game notes: After opening the season 3-0, Stevenson has been outscored 95-7 in the past two weeks. The Bulldogs were originally scheduled to play Onalaska this week, but they now will face Adna. That’s a more favorable matchup for the Bulldogs as they try to find their stride again.

Prediction: Adna 27, Stevenson 20

Onalaska (4-1) vs. Kalama (3-2)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Chinook Stadium, Kalama High School

Livestream: None.

Last week: Onalaska beat Toledo 20-0; Kalama beat Stevenson 36-7.

Last meeting: Onalaska 48, Kalama 30 (2022).

Game notes: Kalama quarterback Aiden Brown accounted for 550 yards of offense – passing and rushing. But the Chinooks will face a much tougher defense in Onalaska. The big question is if Kalama’s offense can outproduce Onalaska’s offense, which only mustered 275 yards last week.

Prediction: Kalama 23, Onalaska 16

Skyview (5-0) vs. Kentwood (2-3)

When: 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: French Field, Kent

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Skyview beat Heritage 59-0; Kentwood beat Mount Rainier 35-21.

Last meeting: Skyview 41, Kentwood 7 (2022).

Game notes: Skyview’s starters haven’t had to play all four quarters of game since the Week 3 win over Bothell. That’s the same week Kentwood lost to Kennedy Catholic 49-6. Kennedy Catholic is ranked No. 6 in Class 4A. Skyview is ranked No. 4 in Class 4A. So another quick afternoon looks likely for the Storm.

Prediction: Skyview 48, Kentwood 6

Mount Baker (2-3) vs. La Center (5-0)


When: 2 p.m. Saturday

Where: La Center Community Stadium, La Center HS

Livestream: La Center Athletics YouTube channel.

Last week: Mount Baker beat Blaine 46-17; La Center beat King’s Way Christian 42-6.

Last meeting: La Center 26, Mount Baker 25 (2022).

Game notes: La Center rallied from a 25-0 deficit to beat Mount Baker on a last-second field goal last season. The Mountaineers would go on to play in the 1A state championship game. La Center shouldn’t be distracted by Mount Baker’s 2-3 season. The Mounties were 2-2 heading into their game with La Center last year. However, last season did not include a 63-22 loss to King’s, which Mount Baker suffered two weeks ago. 

Prediction: La Center 31, Mount Baker 23

Fort Vancouver (1-4) vs. White River (1-4)

When: 4 p.m. Saturday

Where: Arrow Lumber Stadium, White River High School, Buckley

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Fort Vancouver lost to Castle Rock 46-0; White River lost to Clover Park 22-19.

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: After going 1-8 last season, White River looks to be more competitive this season after close losses to Franklin Pierce and Clover Park, plus a 47-7 rout of Foss. Fort Vancouver’s offense has struggled of late, scoring just one touchdown in its last three games. 

Prediction: White River 26, Fort Vancouver 8
