The Game of the Week happens to be a tremendous showdown between No. 3 Marysville-Pilchuck and No. 2 O’Dea. We’ll have more details on the blog, but here are five other games to keep an eye on around the state.
– No. 2 Skyline (2-0) at Mount Si (2-0), Friday at 7 p.m.
Mount Si’s return from 3A has been a successful one so far, but a brutal two-game stretch against the top-two teams in 4A awaits. Whoever comes out on top puts itself in a good position for the playoffs.
– No. 8 Gig Harbor (2-0) at Eastlake (1-1), Friday at 7 p.m.
It’s not a league game, but after falling well short against No. 1 Bothell, Eastlake can use a victory against a ranked team to springboard it into a tough gauntlet of KingCo contests.
– No. 7 Lincoln (2-0) at Capital (1-1), Friday at 7 p.m.
This will be Lincoln’s toughest test yet, as the top teams in the Narrows League face off. Capital’s loss comes to 2A power Tumwater, but it rebounded to beat a good 4A team in Olympia.
– No. 4 Eastside Catholic (1-1) at Arlington (2-0), Friday at 7 p.m.
Arlington is off to a good start, but will get all it can handle with the Crusaders. The Eagles won’t have as tough a test until it faces No. 3 Marysville-Pilchuck on Oct. 17.
– No. 4 Camas (2-0) at Rogers (1-1), Saturday at 4 p.m.
Camas has proved it is still a team to beat in the early going, but will get its first road test this week. If anything, Rogers has shown it is an offensive dynamo, as evidence by last week’s historic shootout with Tahoma.
