What an interesting collection of games tonight in the South Sound.
Some of the scenarios are a little confusing, but two of tonight’s games feature teams that have to win to make the playoffs: Olympia at Yelm and River Ridge at Capital. Yelm and River Ridge have to win to keep their seasons alive and while the Yelm situation is complicated, if River Ridge wins they will force a three way tie for two playoff spots and the three teams will play a Kansas tiebreaker on Tuesday.
But the big game in town tonight is at South Sound Stadium where Timberline at 5-0 in 3A Narrows League play hosts Shelton, who are 4-1. With a win, Timberline takes the league title outright. But if the Highclimbers win, there will be a three way tie atop the Narrows League and a tiebreaker will be used to determine seeding. According to The Olympian, Shelton has to win by at least 14 to secure the #1 seed. You can hear me an John McGlamery call all the action on 1030 AM or KMAS.com
And even struggling Rainier plays an interesting game tonight when Seton Catholic comes to town. The Mountaineers are 0-8 this season while the Cougars are 1-7. The two teams have been outscored by a combined 859-170. Something has to give. Can Rainier actually pull one out and go out of this horrendous season on a high note?
