Washougal (8-2) vs. Orting (9-1)


When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Cardinal Stadium, Orting Middle School. 

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Washougal beat Aberdeen 35-21; Orting beat Olympic 44-0

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: Washougal is the No. 10 seed; Orting is the No. 7 seed. The winner will face Rogers-Spokane or Anacortes. Orting’s lone loss was a 37-7 setback to No. 3 Enumclaw. The Cardinals won their other nine games by an average margin of 43-9. But none of those nine wins came against teams in the 2A state playoff field. The Cardinals have won their last six straight. Washougal has a similar resume. One of the Panthers’ two losses came to No. 9 Woodland. The Panthers have won five in a row. Washougal’s eight wins have come by an average margin of 49-15. Washougal has not been held to fewer than 28 points in any game this season. But the Panthers have a loss to a non-state team – Ridgefield. 

Prediction: Washougal 34, Orting 28


Omak (6-4) vs. La Center (9-0)


When: 6 p.m. Friday

Where: La Center Community Stadium, La Center HS

Livestream: La Center Athletics YouTube channel.

Last week: Omak beat Deer Park 47-17; La Center beat Elma 50-7.

Last meeting: First meeting

Game notes: Omak is the No. 9 seed; La Center is the No. 8 seed. The winner will play Eatonville or Royal in the quarterfinals. Omak has won five of its last six after opening the season 1-3. The one loss in that stretch was to Cashmere (28-21), the No. 4 team in the 1A state bracket. Omak avenged one of its early season losses, Deer Park, in the Week 10 playoff. So the Pioneers are playing better now than they were during that 1-3 start. La Center is 10-0 for the fourth time in John Lambert’s tenure as coach, and for the first time since 2019. The 2019 season ended with a first-round state loss on La Center’s home field. The Wildcats hope to control the game with a running attack led by Idaho-bound offensive lineman Ryan Kawalek.

Prediction: La Center 21, Omak 13


Friday Harbor (5-3) vs. Kalama (7-3)


When: 2 p.m. Friday

Where: Chinook Stadium, Kalama High School

Livestream: NFHS Network/Eli Sports Network (subscription required)

Last week: Friday Harbor idle; Kalama beat Pe Ell/Willapa Valley 30-12.

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: Friday Harbor is the No. 12 seed. Kalama is the No. 5 seed. The winner will face No. 4 Onalaska, the team Kalama finished ahead of in the Central 2B South Division. The game is being played in the early afternoon on Friday because Friday Harbor needs to return to Anacortes in time to catch a ferry back home. Kalama has the offensive firepower to help send the Wolverines home quickly. But the Chinooks will have to play cleaner and avoid turnovers. Friday Harbor does not have a win this season over a team with a winning record. The Wolverines have two wins over Coupeville (2-7), two over LaConner (2-6) and one over South Whidbey (2-7).

Prediction: Kalama 36, Friday Harbor 14


Skyline (7-3) vs. Skyview (9-1)


When: 2 p.m. Saturday

Where: Kiggins Bowl, Discovery MS, Vancouver

TV: Cable Ch. 28.

Livestream: Vancouver Public Schools YouTube channel.

Last week: Skyline beat Puyallup 25-22 OT; Skyview beat Bethel 49-21.

Last meeting: Skyview 34, Skyline 31 (2014)

Game notes: Skyline is the No. 12 seed; Skyview is the No. 5 seed. The winner will face Sumner or Eastlake. Skyline finished second to Eastlake in the 4A KingCo. Skyline relies on its defense. Last week was only the second time all season the Spartans allowed an opponent to score more than 21 points in a game. The other game was a 30-17 loss to Bothell in Week 5, two weeks after Skyview beat Bothell 21-7. Josh Menold had the game-clinching interception in overtime last week. Skyview’s offense has been rolling since a 21-9 loss to Camas, averaging 44 points a game. The Storm’s defense has been stout. In Skyview’s nine wins, the Storm did not allow opponents to score more than 10 points in any game until Bethel added two late touchdowns with the running clock in motion last week.

Prediction: Skyview 28, Skyline 20


Mount Si (7-3) vs. Camas (9-1)


When: 5 p.m. Saturday

Where: Doc Harris Stadium, Camas

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Mount Si beat Glacier Peak 39-14; Camas beat Federal Way 56-7

Last meeting: Camas 35, Mount Si 14 (2019).

Game notes: Mount Si of Snoqualmie is the No. 14 seed. Camas is the No. 3 seed.  The winner will face Kamiakin or Emerald Ridge. All three of Mount Si’s losses were to 4A state-playoff teams – Skyline (16-7), Eastlake (30-28) and Chiawana (14-12). The Wildcats and Papermakers have a common opponent – Glacier Peak. Camas beat Glacier Peak 55-20 in Week 2. Mount Si’s CJ Rose rushed for 213 yards in the win last week. Camas fans will remember the last meeting with Mount Si came in the state semifinals during the Papermakers’ run to the state championship. Camas is a blocked field goal away from a 10-0 record. The Papermakers defense has played very well of late, allowing three of their last four opponents to single digits. In other games, many of the points scored by Camas’ opponents came after the Papermakers had built a sizable lead. 

Prediction: Camas 28, Mount Si 14


Woodland (8-2) vs. Clarkston (7-2)


When: Noon Saturday

Where: Clarkston High School stadium, Clarkston HS

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Woodland beat Rochester 33-8; Clarkston idle.

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: Woodland is the No. 9 seed; Clarkston is the No. 8 seed. The winner will face Port Angeles or Tumwater in the quarterfinals. Clarkston enters this game having won its last five, including a 39-12 win over Rogers-Spokane — its lone win over a 2A state tournament win. The Bantams have averaged 40 points a game over that win streak. Woodland has won its last six straight. That doesn’t include its lone win over a 2A state team — a 33-28 win over Washougal. The Beavers have averaged 39 points over their last six games. This will be Woodland’s first game on a natural grass field since falling to La Center in Week 2.

Prediction: Clarkston 34, Woodland 27


Mountain View (9-1) vs. Kennewick (9-1) 


When: 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: Lampson Stadium, Kennewick

Livestream: NFHS Network (subscription required)

Last week: Mountain View beat Edmonds-Woodway 42-28; Kennewick beat Mercer Island 38-0.

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: Mountain View is the No. 12 seed; Kennewick is the No. 5 seed. Winner will play Lincoln-Tacoma or Eastside Catholic in the quarterfinals. Kennewick’s lone loss was a 19-9 setback to Chiawana, the 4A No. 9 team, in Week 6. The Lions have a 20-14 win over 4A No. 6 team Kamiakin and a 36-29 win over No. 16 4A team Richland. Mountain View’s lone win over a state-playoff team was a 42-27 win over Richland two weeks ago. The Thunder offense line has powered the way to more than 700 rushing yards. Porter Drake has rushed for 507 yards and nine touchdowns the last two weeks. The Thunder will need to avoid another slow start like they had last week. 

Prediction: Mountain View 28, Kennewick 24


Seton Catholic (9-1) vs. King’s (9-0) 


When: 6 p.m. Saturday

Where: Woolsey Stadium, King’s High School, Shoreline

Livestream: King’s Schools Livestream YouTube channel.

Last week: Seton Catholic beat Tenino 51-7; King’s was idle

Last meeting: First meeting.

Game notes: Seton Catholic is the No. 12 seed; King’s is the No. 5 seed. The winner will play Toppenish or Cashmere in the quarterfinals. This is the first state playoff game in program history for Seton Catholic. Seton Catholic has a 53-34 win over No. 15 Life Christian and a 14-13 loss to No. 8 La Center in the 1A state bracket. King’s has a 28-26 win over No. 6 Nooksack Valley and a 15-13 win over No. 11 Cascade Christian. The Knights are averaging 45 points, but they haven’t played a game since Oct. 20 after a Week 9 forfeit win and a bye last week. 

Prediction: King’s 41, Seton Catholic 21
