4A state tournament quarterfinals – Bracket
Olympia vs. Inglemoor – Ingersoll Stadium – 7:00 PM
Olympia pulled off a minor shocker (at least to me) when they dropped Edmonds-Woodway at Edmonds Stadium on Tuesday. They now get to host their quarterfinal match-up with Inglemoor at 7:00 PM.
Inglemoor pulled off a 1-0 win over Kentridge and improved to 12-2-3 this season. The Vikings have scored just 35 goals this season but have allowed just seven goals. They feature Oregon commit Abby Morrow at Midfield and Forward.
The winner of tonight’s game will move into the semis and will face either Skyline or Issaquah at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner at 8:00 PM next Friday.
High school football
1A State Tournament First Round – Bracket
Tenino vs. King’s – Tiger Stadium, Centralia – 7:00 PM
Tenino has been rolling winners of four straight games and six of their last seven after an 0-3 start. They knocked off White Salmon convincingly, 41-7, last week and now turn their sights on King’s.
The private school in Shoreline plays in the mixed 1A/2A Cascade Conference and played seven 2A schools this season including close losses to Lynden and Lakewood, their only two losses of the season. They get to tune up all season long against 2A teams and then drop down to battle 1A schools once the postseason rolls around. In the crossover game, they easily beat Eatonville 30-12.
ScoreCzar is picking King’s to win 27-10. You can hear a webcast of the game on the KELA website.
