Playoff time is here already and Nathan Hale, Chief Sealth and Ingraham battled it out in mini-tiebreaker games last night to decide the No. 2 and 3 seeds from the Metro Valley, with the third team seeing its season come to an end.
Nathan Hale won two games to grab the No. 2 seed, while Chief Sealth went 1-1 to take the No. 3 berth from the division.
The corresponding seeds from the Valley will now play against the Sound. Here’s how that shakes out.
No. 1s: Ballard-Roosevelt (Roosevelt won the previous meeting this year 41-24)
No. 2s: Nathan Hale-Garfield (Garfield won the previous meeting this year 20-15)
No. 3s: Chief Sealth-Cleveland (have not played this year)
The winner of Ballard-Roosevelt becomes the No. 1 seed, while the loser is the No. 2. The winner of Nathan Hale-Garfield is the No. 3 seed, while the loser is the No. 4. The winner of the Chief Sealth-Cleveland game is the No. 5 seed, while the loser is done.
The seeds, from 1-5 are matched up with the top five seeds from the Mountain (we know the first seed is Eastside Catholic, but the division is playing its last round of games against each other this week). The loser of the No. 5 seeds will be done, with the Metro getting nine berths into the week 10 matchups.
