Congratulations to the following area football teams, who finished this week undefeated. In notable games this weekend, O’Dea wrapped up the Metro title against Nathan Hale, Ferndale survived Mount Vernon in overtime, and Archbishop Murphy won the Cascade with a victory against South Whidbey.
Looking ahead in the playoffs, some of these teams could meet pretty early. Skyline and Lakes would meet in the so-called “first round,” which is actually the playoffs’ second round. Ferndale and Franklin would meet in the quarterfinals, if both teams made it that far. The same’s true with Bothell and Oak Harbor in Class 4A. There are plenty of teams ready to derail these meetings if they can.
One note: Cascade Christian hasn’t finished its season yet. It plays Life Christian on Thursday.

1. Melissa Vonder Hofen, Archibishop Murphy, girls soccer. Scored four goals against South Whidbey.
2. Miles Unterreiner, Gig Harbor, boys cross country. Posted the best winning time of the day, 15:14, to win Westside Classic at American Lake Golf Course.
3. Ashleigh Pollard, Rogers, volleyball. Racked up 20 kills and 27 digs, but that Kentwood team is just too good. The Conquerors won in four games.
