2A Evergreen Conference

Clinched: Tumwater (4-0 league, No. 1 seed), W.F. West (3-1, No. 2 seed)

In the mix: Capital (2-2), Black Hills (2-2), River Ridge (1-3)

Out: Centralia (0-4)

Playoff berths: Three

The lowdown: A Capital win Friday over River Ridge and the Cougars are the No. 3 seed and face the 2A GSHL champion on the road in the Week 10 district crossover game, but things get tricky should the Hawks top Capital. If River Ridge defeats Capital, and Black Hills beats top-ranked Tumwater in the Pioneer Bowl, the Wolves get the No. 3 seed outright, but a River Ridge win, plus a Black Hills loss means a mini-playoff tiebreaker for the final playoff berth will be held Tuesday between Black Hills, Capital and River Ridge at a time and location to be determined, said Scott Chamberlain, EvCo football commissioner and W.F. West athletic director.

1A SWW Evergreen

Clinched: Rochester (4-1 league), Tenino (4-1), Elma (4-1)

In the mix: Montesano (3-2), Forks (2-3)

Out: Hoquiam (1-4), Rainier (0-6)

Playoff berths: Four

The lowdown: Friday’s Rochester-Tenino game has league title implications for both, but depending on which teams win, and the outcome of Elma-Montesano game, will determine if the league title is shared or not. Rochester defeated Elma this year, meaning should the Warriors win, they'd take the No. 1 seed into the district playoffs. Elma topped Tenino, 3-35, this year, meaning should Tenino and Elma win their games Friday, they'd be co-champions and Elma would take the No. 1 seed. A loss by either Rochester or Tenino could mean a drop to the No. 3 spot, again, depending on the Elma-Montesano outcome.
