A look at the playoffs for football, girls soccer, volleyball and more
The postseason is over for one fall sport, has already started in another, and for football, in a way, it is beginning Monday night.
There are two high school football tiebreaker events Monday.
In the Class 3A Greater St. Helens League, Evergreen, Kelso, and Prairie will meet in Camas to determine the No. 2 seed from the league. Mountain View is the league champion and No. 1. The lone survivor of Monday’s tiebreaker will be the No. 2 seed and advance to the Week 10 state preliminary round playoff.
In the 2A GSHL, all three teams are advancing to Week 10’s district playoffs, but will meet Monday in Battle Ground to determine seeds 2, 3, and 4. The No. 2 seed will get a home game for the Week 10 playoffs. Nos. 3 and 4 will be on the road. Woodland is the league champion and the No. 1 seeds.
The 4A GSHL did not need a tiebreaker.
Camas went 3-0 in league play, 8-1 overall, and is the top seed. The Papermakers will host Federal Way on Friday night at Doc Harris Stadium in the Week 10 state preliminary game.
Skyview went 2-1 and 8-1 overall is No. 2. The Storm also got a home game and will host Bethell on Friday at Kiggins Bowl. Battle Ground, 1-2 in league and 7-2 overall, will be on the road against Sumner.
Mountain View, the 3A GSHL champion, has a home game against Edmonds-Woodway at 1 p.m. Saturday at McKenzie Stadium.
Woodland, 7-2 overall, will host Rochester in a 2A District 4 playoff game.
In Class 1A, undefeated La Center will host Elma in a district playoff game. Seton Catholic, 8-1, will also get a home game, taking on Tenino.
In other WIAA-sanctioned sports, sSlowpitch softball concluded its season over the weekend with its state tournaments. Union finished second, falling in the Class 4A state championship game to Chiawana. Columbia River finished fourth in the 3A/2A bracket.
In bi-district girls soccer, Camas lost its opener but remains alive. The Papermakers play Graham-Kapowin in an elimination match Tuesday. Skyview won its opener and plays another elimination match Tuesday against Kentwood. Tuesday’s winners will then have two opportunities to win one match to advance to state.
