Week 7 prep football previews with predictions and livestream links

For a third consecutive week, the 2A Greater St. Helens League continues to be a problem for us, as we went 2-2 on games in that league.

But we also missed two non-2A GSHL games, leaving us 12-4 on the week.

That dropped our season total to 81-18 (81.8 percent).

This week likely won’t things any easier with games like:

  • Skyview vs. Camas
  • Battle Ground vs. Union
  • Mountain View vs. Kelso
  • Hudson’s Bay vs. Woodland
  • La Center vs. Seton Catholic

Just to name a few. 

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 7 lineup of games:

Heritage (0-6, 0-1) vs. Evergreen (3-2, 0-1)


When: 4:30 p.m. Thursday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28.

Livestream: Evergreen Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Heritage lost to Kelso 51-0; Evergreen lost to Camas 49-21.

Last meeting: Evergreen 55, Heritage 3 (2022).

Game notes: Evergreen looks to regroup and makes fixes it needs to make its final push for the postseason. The Plainsmen face Prairie and then Kelso the next two weeks. Evergreen will also look to get healthy. 

Prediction: Evergreen 48, Heritage 7


Battle Ground (6-0, 0-0) vs. Union (2-4, 0-0) 


When: 7 p.m. Thursday

Where: McKenzie Stadium, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28.

Livestream: Evergreen Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Battle Ground beat Lakes 23-0; Union beat Stanwood 30-13.

Last meeting: Union 49, Battle Ground 25 (2022).

Game notes: Battle Ground’s defense has been outstanding all season long, registering four shutouts and allowing just 14 points all season. Now the Tigers will be put to the test as they play their three most important games of the season, starting this week. Union has played a grueling non-league schedule against some of the top teams in the state. And the Titans are improving, as evident in their win over Stanwood. The loser of this game will find itself in an uphill battle to reach the playoffs.

Prediction: Battle Ground 24, Union 14


Skyview (6-0, 0-0) vs. Camas (5-1, 0-0)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Doc Harris Stadium, Camas

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Skyview beat Kentwood 56-0; Camas beat Evergreen 49-21.

Last meeting: Camas 36, Skyview 33 (2022).

Game notes: The Skyview-Camas has developed into one of the area’s best rivalries. The last four games have gone 36-33, 17-7, 38-31 in overtime and 21-17. But all four of those games all went to Camas. In fact, ever since Camas joined the 4A GSHL, the Papermakers are 12-0 against Skyview, including a state-playoff matchup. The law of averages says things have to eventually break the Storm’s way, right? Both teams are well-rested heading into this one. Neither teams’ starters have played more than two quarters of football in each of the last two weeks, and it’s been almost a month since either team was seriously challenged. 

Prediction: Skyview 28, Camas 24


Mountain View (5-1, 2-0) vs. Kelso (2-4, 1-1)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Schroeder Field, Kelso High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Mountain View beat Prairie 48-0; Kelso beat Heritage 51-0.

Last meeting: Kelso 28, Mountain View 26 (2022).

Game notes: Mountain View will be playing for a league title essentially this week. Technically, the Thunder will clinch a share of the 3A GSHL title with a win this week, needing to beat last-place Heritage next week to take the title outright. Kelso’s season has been largely disappointing to date, but a win over the Thunder can quickly turn things around in the right direction. The Hilanders have the talent to be a dangerous opponent, especially on their home field. 

Prediction: Mountain View 35, Kelso 20


Prairie (1-5) vs. W.F. West (3-3)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Bearcat Stadium, WF West HS, Chehalis

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Prairie lost to Mountain View 48-0; W.F. West beat Rochester 28-6.

Last meeting: W.F. West 35, Prairie 24 (2015).

Game notes: As well as things went two weeks ago against Kelso, things went decidedly wrong last week against Mountain View. The Falcons get a non-league road game to try to fix what went wrong last week before facing a pivotal league matchup next week against Evergreen. Don’t be thrown off by W.F. West’s 3-3 record. The Bearcats faced a tough non-league schedule before winning three of their last four in fairly dominant fashion. W.F. West’s lone loss in that stretch was to top-ranked Tumwater. 

Prediction: W.F. West 28, Prairie 20


R.A. Long (1-5, 0-4) vs. Washougal (4-2, 2-2)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Fishback Stadium, Washougal HS

Livestream: None

Last week: R.A. Long lost to Woodland 41-0; Washougal beat Hudson’s Bay 55-14.

Last meeting: Washougal 64, R.A. Long 27 (2022).

Game notes: Washougal answered the bell last week in a big way with a rout of Hudson’s Bay. The Panthers finish the regular season against R.A. Long, Columbia River and Hockinson. All winnable games for the Panthers, but in the crazy 2A GSHL, who can really tell. If Washougal wins all three, they’ll be playoff-bound. With some help, they could even host a Week 10 playoff. But first things first, they must take care of an R.A. Long team that has lost five straight since a Week 1 win over Castle Rock.

Prediction: Washougal 48, R.A. Long 6


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


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: John O’Rourke Field, Columbia River HS

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Ridgefield beat Mark Morris 42-0; Columbia River lost to Hockinson 28-7.

Last meeting: Ridgefield 35, Columbia River 21 (2022).

Game notes: After falling at home to Hudson’s Bay, Ridgefield has bounced back, putting the Spudders right into the league title race. A Week 9 matchup between Ridgefield and Woodland could potentially decide the league title. But there are a lot of booby traps to avoid before the Spudders get there, starting this week. Columbia River showed how potent it can be by knocking off Woodland two weeks ago. But the Rapids must figure out what went wrong last week when they allowed Hockinson to run over them. Ridgefield, with its 1-2 running back punch in Cly Stephens and Rocco Wright, can do some running, too.

Prediction: Ridgefield 28, Columbia River 14


Hudson’s Bay (5-1, 3-1) vs. Woodland (4-2, 3-1)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Beaver Stadium, Woodland High School.

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Hudson’s Bay lost to Washougal 55-14; Woodland beat R.A. Long 41-0.

Last meeting: Hudson’s Bay 28, Woodland 21 (2022).

Game notes: The Eagles of Hudson’s Bay were flying high through the first five weeks of the season. But things came crashing to the ground last week against Woodland. Now Bay finds itself in scramble mode facing a Woodland team that is getting healthier and better. After failing to stop one playmaker in Holden Bea last week, the Eagles now must stop Woodland’s Elijah Andersen, who has been piling up 100+ rushing games all season. He’s even a threat in the passing game, which might prove to be pivotal in this matchup.

Prediction: Woodland 27, Hudson’s Bay 21


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


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Longview Memorial Stadium, Longview

Livestream: N2 Media YouTube channel

Last week: Hockinson beat Columbia River 28-7; Mark Morris lost to Ridgefield 42-0.

Last meeting: Mark Morris 35, Hockinson 31 (2022).

Game notes: The Hawks took a new approach last week, grounding its passing attack largely in favor of a ground attack led by quarterback Andon Stenersen. With Hockinson team Mark Morris will see is anyone’s guess. But the Monarchs need to figure out their struggles on offense for that to matter much. The Monarchs have been shut out three times this season and have not scored more than 22 points in any game this season.

Prediction: Hockinson 24, Mark Morris 7


La Center (6-0, 1-0) vs. Seton Catholic (6-0, 3-0)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

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

Livestream: Seton Athletics YouTube channel

Last week: La Center beat Mount Baker 33-19; Seton Catholic beat Castle Rock 38-27.

Last meeting: La Center 70, Seton Catholic 20 (2022).

Game notes: It’s been a season of firsts at Seton Catholic. Last week, the Cougars earned another with their first win over Castle Rock. Now, they will go after their first win against La Center. But that will be a much more difficult task. In seven previous meetings with Seton, La Center has won by an average score of 55-11. Seton has the weapons on offense to equal that of La Center, but where the Cougars will be outsized is up front, where the game is often decided. The Cougars will need to make big plays on offense and score some turnovers on defense if they hope to make history again. 

Prediction: La Center 41, Seton Catholic 20


King’s Way Christian (1-5, 1-2) vs. Fort Vancouver (1-5, 0-2)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Kiggins Bowl, Discovery MS, Vancouver

Livestream: None.

Last week: King’s Way Christian beat Columbia-White Salmon 7-6; Fort Vancouver lost to White River 66-0.

Last meeting: King’s Way Christian 42, Fort Vancouver 29 (2022).

Game notes: King’s Way Christian got its first win under first-year coach Dale Rule last week, stopping Columbia-White Salmon on a two-point conversion with nine seconds to play. This game could be very similar. Both the Knights and Trappers have small rosters and young rosters. Fort Vancouver will need to find its offense again. After scoring 42 points in their first two games, the Trappers have managed just eight in their last four, being outscored 147-8. The team that is able to break some big plays likely will prevail in this one.

Prediction: Fort Vancouver 20, King’s Way Christian 16


Castle Rock (2-4, 1-1) vs. Columbia-White Salmon (0-6, 0-3)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Bruin Stadium, Columbia HS, White Salmon

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Castle Rock lost to Seton Catholic 38-27; Columbia-White Salmon lost to King’s Way Christian 7-6.

Last meeting: Castle Rock 46, Columbia-White Salmon 7 (2022).

Game notes: Columbia-White Salmon came one yard – maybe even a half of a yard – from snapping a 15-game losing streak last week against King’s Way Christian. But the Bruins’ two-point conversion try with nine seconds left was stopped. Now the Bruins will be tasked with stopping Castle Rock running back Ian Burton, who has stepped in nicely in place of reigning league MVP Stephen Ibsen. The Rockets will need to get their playoff drive back on track this week and next week against King’s Way with La Center looming in Week 9.

Prediction: Castle Rock 34, Columbia-White Salmon 13


Stevenson (3-3) vs. Onalaska (4-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Onalaska High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Stevenson lost to Adna 53-20; Onalaska lost to Kalama 44-36.

Last meeting: Onalaska 44, Stevenson 14 (2022).

Game notes: Stevenson has dropped three straight and face another tough Central 2B opponent. Onalaska’s Kayden Monzingo rushed for 333 yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort against Kalama. The Bulldogs will be hard-pressed to stop the Loggers. 

Prediction: Onalaska 41, Stevenson 14


Kalama (4-2) vs. Napavine (5-1)


When: 7 p.m. Saturday

Where: Napavine High School

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Kalama beat Onalaska 44-36; Napavine beat Morton-White Pass 43-6.

Last meeting: Kalama 16, Napavine 14 (2021).

Game notes: The last time Kalama and Napavine met, it was for the 2B state championship in 2021. Kalama has won four straight since opening the season 0-2. Aiden Brown has been the standout for the Chinooks, rushing and passing the ball. This game looks to be a battle of star quarterbacks between Brown and Napavine’s Ashton Demarest. But Napavine may have bit more support around Demarest than Kalama has around Brown, and that will likely be the difference

Prediction: Napavine 36, Kalama 22
