Wilson (2-0) at Shelton (2-0), 7 p.m., Friday, Highclimber Stadium
Who wouldve thought these two teams would be undefeated when they met for their 3A Narrows League opener? The Highclimbers are 2-0 for the first time since 2004, are one of the biggest surprises through two games, outscoring Tumwater and North Mason a combined 96-45. Senior running back Ralph Kinne has labeled himself as one of the states premiere running backs after his performance through two games. Hes tallied a combined 539 rushing yards on 46 carries and has scored five touchdowns. The Rams have made big plays on defense in its two wins, led by linebackers James Sivonen, Connor Patterson and Jake Ferris.
Olympia (0-2) at Timberline (1-1), 7 p.m., Friday, South Sound Stadium
Both teams see this game as a must-win. Olympia is one of seven teams in the state -- and the only 4A team -- that has yet to score a point through two games. The program has never started 0-3 under coach Bill Beattie. The Bears have been outscored 53-0 in losses to nationally ranked Lake Oswego (Ore.) and Capital. Timberline sophomore quarterback Gabriel Gutierrez had a breakout performance in Week 2: 24 of 44 for 307 yards and three touchdowns, but he also had three interceptions against the T-Birds. The 48 points given up was the most since a 58-14 loss to Bellevue in the first round of the 2010 state playoffs.
