Tough draws

One of the most overused coaching cliches is, “We’re gonna take it one game at a time.”

Fine. Be that way. But we media folks have that luxury of looking ahead a few weeks.

And when doing just that, we’ve noticed that there are some huge games a bit earlier than normal.

Three examples really stick out:

1.) In the 4A playoffs, there’s a good chance fourth-ranked, defending champ Oak Harbor will play second-ranked Bothell in the second round. Yikes! That game has “championship game” written all over it, and it could happen well before that.

2.) Also in 4A, third-ranked Edmonds-Woodway could face fifth-ranked Eastlake in the second round.

3.) Perhaps the worst draw comes in the 3A playoffs where top-ranked Lakes could meet second-ranked Skyline…in the first round! First round, people! That’s outrageous! See Sideline Smitty’s take here.

There must be other games like the ones mentioned. Your gripes welcomed in the comments.
