Only one undefeated team, South Whidbey, fell this weekend, but a couple came frighteningly close. Edmonds-Woodway had a challenge in Marysville-Pilchuck, but Bothell’s the team that had the biggest scare. At halftime, the Cougars trailed Inglemoor, and their undefeated record — and KingCo 4A championship– were on the line. But Bothell rallied for a 16-13 victory.
So, with one week of the regular season left, these are your area’s undefeated teams:
