River Ridge (5-1 overall, 2-0 2A EvCo) at W.F. West (4-2, 1-1), 7 p.m. Friday, Bearcat Stadium
The Hawks have been on a roll offensively since being shut out by Timberline (20-0) in Week 1, averaging 36 points per contest. But now, the toughest part of the schedule hits River Ridge. Chris Leiba came up with the game-winning touchdown last week in the teams 41-34 win over Centralia with 1:26 left to keep the Hawks perfect in league play. QB Colby Schultz already has thrown for more than 1,000 yards, including two 300-plus yard passing games. W.F. Wests defense gave up a season-low six points in last weeks 24-6 win over Black Hills, and has been led offneisvely all season by QB Tanner Gueller, who completed 7 of 14 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns against the Wolves.
Montesano (4-2 overall, 2-1 1A SWW Evergreen) at Tenino (5-1, 3-0), 7 p.m. Friday, Beaver Stadium
Who hasn't been anxious to see this matchup? Tenino hasn't beaten Montesano in 20-plus years, and if the Beavers win, next week's game at Hoquiam sets up the 1A SWW Evergreen title. Senior quarterback Mac Shaw is vastly approaching 2,000 yards passing with 1,008 yards going to senior receiver Devante Harris (54 receptions, 14 receiving TDs, three rushing). District IV-rival La Center shut down Teninos offense, winning 40-6, but Harris still had 131 receiving yards and a touchdown. At 4-2, the Bulldogs are still a dangerous team. Both of Montes losses came to No. 5-ranked Hoquiam (41-14) and No. 6-ranked Cascade Christian (28-25).
