Undefeated list down to 13

Here you have it: only 13 undefeated teams left in the area. Eastlake and Life Christian dropped off the list this week with close losses to Bothell and Orting. With only two weeks left in the season, I like the chances for most of the survivors to finish the season undefeated..

By taking a look at the Class 3A and Class 4A brackets, I tried to get a feel for when any of these teams might actually meet.

For instance, should Bothell and Oak Harbor hold onto the top spots in KingCo 4A and the WesCo North, we could get a rematch of last season’s state title game in the 4A quarterfinals. Edmonds-Woodway wouldn’t see either of those teams until the state championship game.

In Class 3A, there are some interesting scenarios. For instance, if Lakes and Skyline win the Western Cascade and KingCo 3A, they could meet in so-called “first round” (which is actually the second weekend) of the 3A playoffs. Ferndale and Franklin Pierce, if they hang onto the Northwest and the SPSL 3A, would meet in the quarterfinals.

But there’s a long way between now and then, not to mention the preliminary playoff games each of these teams would have to win. There’s still one potential regular-season game between area undefeated teams: Archbishop Murphy-South Whidbey on Oct. 26.
