“Feuding Friday” provides clarity for WesCo, Cascade

Don’t look now, but there is some clarity emerging in the WesCo and Cascade

Conference football races. After what easily could be termed, to take a cue from ESPN, “Feuding Friday,” each of the three races in the WesCo have clear leaders. And in the Cascade, Archbishop Murphy took one big step to asserting itself again in Class 2A.

Murphy survived a big game from Lakewood senior quarterback Justin Lane, who threw for 317 yards, to take out one of its two biggest threats in the Cascade, 35-28. ATM quarterback Austin VanderWel threw for two TDs of his own and added two more on the ground.

The win sets up a showdown of sorts in three weeks, when the Wildcats face the other top QB in the Cascade, Thomas Vincent, and King’s.

In WesCo 4A, Mariner has emerged after just two weeks of league play as the clear (and surprising) leader in the South. The Marauders and 1,000-yard rusher Kei’Varae Russell are the only unbeaten team left after Edmonds-Woodway outlasted Jackson in overtime, 52-51.

Mariner still has Jackson on Oct. 22. But the Marauders already have beaten the preseason favorite Warriors.

In the North, Arlington’s win over Lake Stevens on Friday leaves it as the sole possessor of first place – with wins already over its two biggest competitors, Marysville-Pilchuck and Lake Stevens.

And finally, Glacier Peak’s big win over Meadowdale in Snohomish on Friday gives the Grizzlies a game advantage over the field in WesCo 3A.
