High School Football Power Rankings: Bears, Wolves, Hawks and T-Birds Remain Unbeaten

olympiabear

Olympia finally gave up some meaningful points allowing 25 to Timberline and actually had a close game on their hands until the third quarter. But eventually they poured it on and recorded their highest point total of the season with a 49-25 win. That gives them 180 point so far this season with two weeks of games coming up that don’t suggest that they will be slowed down soon. With that, they get the top spot in this week’s power rankings.

Oly, Black Hills, River Ridge and Tumwater are all undefeated with favorable schedules for the next couple weeks. Except for Black Hills, who face historic league power WF West this week in Chehalis.

——————————————–

1. Olympia Bears (4-0 overall, 2-0 4A Narrows)
Last week: #1 (no change)
Previous game: Beat Timberline, 49-25
Next game: vs. Issaquah (2-2 overall) – Ingersoll Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Oly has so many weapons. Scott Gunther, David Woodward, Jayden Toussaint, etc. They did allow Timberline to get with nine points in the third quarter but quickly put them in their rear view after that. Oly gets a non-league game with Issaquah this week and Stadium after before they face Gig Harbor and Bellarmine in back-to-back weeks.


2. Black Hills Wolves (4-0 overall)

Last week: #2 (no change)
Previous game: Beat Columbia River, 46-20
Next game: @ WF West (2-2 overall) – Bearcat Stadium, Chehalis – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Black Hills continues to roll and have now beaten three teams that have appeared in the AP football poll at one point or another this season. That’s all well and good, but league play is here with a trip to Chehalis on tap. WF West sits at just 2-2, but other than a 35 point loss to West Valley, have given up just 27 points to decent teams.


3. River Ridge Hawks (4-0 overall, 2-0 2A SPSL)

Last week: #3 (no change)
Previous game: Beat Orting, 35-14
Next game: vs. White River (0-4 overall, 0-2 2A SPSL) – South Sound Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Orting looked like the team to beat and River Ridge did just that. And with that, it looks like the Hawks are on a collision course with Fife late in the season. White River comes in this week at 0-4.


4. Tumwater T-Birds (4-0 overall)

Last week: #4 (no change)
Previous game: Beat Lake City, Idaho – 35-21
Next game: vs. Columbia River (2-2 overall) – Tumwater Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: T-Birds are the #1 team in the state and undefeated but we knew that would happen, especially with a relatively easy schedule. The lack of surprise keeps them at #4 despite those high rankings. Their best offensive player, Easton Trakel, still hasn’t taken the field yet.


5. Tenino Beavers (3-1 overall, 1-1 2A/1A Evergreen)

Last week: #8 (+3)
Previous game: Beat Elma, 39-20
Next game: vs. Forks (2-2 overall, 1-1 2A/1A Evergreen) – Tenino Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Tenino took it to previously unbeaten Elma on Friday night to bounce back from their loss to Hoquiam the week before. Thomas Pier ran for 212 yards and three TDs and will likely continue to run wild this week against Forks.


6. Rainier Mountaineers (3-1 overall, 2-1 2B Pacific)

Last week: #7 (+1)
Previous game: Beat Ocosta, 59-19
Next game: @ North Beach (4-0 overall, 3-0 2B Pacific) – North Beach HS, Ocean Shores – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Rainier continued to run past the bottom half of the 2B Pacific burying Ocosta 59-19. Next up, though, is a trip to the Ocean where they will run into the #3 team in the state. While highly unlikely, it isn’t completely out of the question that you might see an upset, which is really saying something for the Mountaineers.


7. North Thurston Rams (2-2 overall, 1-1 3A Narrows)

Last week: #5 (-2)
Previous game: Lost to Central Kitsap, 23-22
Next game: @ Foss (0-4 overall, 0-2 3A Narrows) – Mount Tahoma Stadium, Tacoma – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: A very close loss to Central Kitsap moved the Rams back to the 3A Narrows pack at 1-1. They should pick up an easy win this weekend against Foss.


8. Capital Cougars (1-3 overall, 1-1 3A Narrows)

Last week: #11 (+3)
Previous game: Beat Foss, 46-14
Next game: @ Central Kitsap (2-2 overall, 2-0 3A Narrows) – Silverdale Stadium – Friday, 7:30 PM

Notes: Capital got their first win over a bad Foss squad, this time scoring 46 and winning after scoring 46 and losing to Lincoln the week before. The Cougars have showed that they can put up some points over the past two weeks and with the 3A Narrows proving to be mediocre this season after Lincoln, they can easily make some noise the rest of the way. A win over Central Kitsap would put them in the drivers seat for the #2 spot in league.


9. Shelton Highclimbers (2-2 overall, 1-1 3A Narrows)

Last week: #6 (-3)
Previous game: Lost to Lincoln, 54-3
Next game: @ Wilson (1-3 overall, 1-1 3A Narrows) – Stadium Bowl, Tacoma – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: No shame in getting trounced by Lincoln – who might be better than last season under Jon Kitna. And the middle pack of the 3A Narrows is very winable for the Highclimbers. They could take second in league, they could fall to sixth. Hard to tell. This week’s game at struggling Wilson will be a big measuring stick.


10. Rochester Warriors (2-2 overall, 1-1 2A/1A Evergreen)

Last week: #12 (+2)
Previous game: Beat Forks, 49-7
Next game: vs. Aberdeen (0-4 overall, 0-2 2A/1A Evergreen) – Rochester HS – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Always nice to go up to Forks and get a win and a bad Aberdeen team comes to town this week.


11. Timberline Blazers (1-3 overall, 1-1 4A Narrows)

Last week: #10 (+1)
Previous game: Lost to Olympia, 49-25
Next game: @ Bellarmine (3-1 overall, 1-0 4A Narrows – Memorial Stadium, Tacoma – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Big loss to Olympia with Bellarmine looming and Gig Harbor after that. Brutal. Probably the toughest schedule over the first five weeks of anybody and that win over Yelm keeps them out of the cellar.


12. Yelm Tornadoes (3-1 overall, 1-1 4A Narrows)

Last week: #10 (-2)
Previous game: Beat South Kitsap, 49-29
Next game: vs. Stadium (1-3 overall, 0-2 4A Narrows) – Yelm HS – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Yelm, Yelm, Yelm. I’m not sure what to do with you. Yeah, you sit at 3-1 overall and are coming off a big win but that loss to Timberline has thrown me for a loop. I can’t rank you ahead of them and I can’t rank them ahead of anybody else with that 1-3 record. So you find yourself in the #12 spot despite all your wins. A rejuvenated Stadium squad comes to town in what should be a really interesting game.

OlySports.com and Tags Awards & Specialties Premier Player: Scott Gunther

Scott Gunther – Olympia High School – Football

131-14. The Olympia Bears have steamrolled their opponents over the first three weeks of the season. And after a lost sophomore season, Oly running back Scott Gunther has exploded back onto the scene and has earned the first OlySports.com and Tags Awards & Specialties Premier Player award.

Gunther played in just one game in 2014 after a pair of injuries, including a broken collarbone in a week three game at South Kitsap. But fully healthy for 2015, Gunther has been outstanding, rushing for 521 yards and nine touchdowns in three games.

“It’s the O-line and the receivers,” says Gunther, quick to credit his teammates for his early success. “I get past the first level and the receivers are making key blocks all over. I’m the lucky running back right now.”

With resounding wins over Ferris at Husky Stadium, Capital in the annual Spaghetti Bowl and South Kitsap in the 4A Narrows opener, Olympia has moved into the #10 spot in the Associated Press poll and looks poised to challenge Gig Harbor and Bellarmine for the top spot in the league.

“Our motto as a team is ‘ready for all, yield to none’. We treat every team the same each week in practice.”

This week, the Bears face Timberline in Lacey and look to improve to 2-0 in the Narrows.

“They have some great athletes, it should be a really good game.”

OlySports.com and Tags Awards & Specialties Premier Player: Maddy Midstokke

Maddy Midstokke with her award and her team


Maddy Midstokke – Capital High School – Girls Soccer

Three goals against your rival gets you a pitch invasion from your fans. Three goals against your rival plus leading your team to a 5-0 record to begin the season? Well that gets Capital High School’s Maddy Midstokke the first OlySports.com and Tags Awards & Specialties Premier Player award.

Midstokke scored early against Olympia but the Cougars drew even a few minutes later and the two teams took the tie late into the game. With less than two minutes left to play, the senior forward broke free and floated a ball up and over the head of a quickly retreating Bears goalkeeper to give Capital a 2-1 lead. She added an insurance goal a minute later and Capital walked away with a long awaited 3-1 rivalry win.

“We wanted to win so bad,” said Midstokke. “It was the first time (beating Olympia) in my four years.”

Midstokke (#17) gets a lift from Capital supporters

Midstokke (#17) gets a lift from Capital supporters – “We have the best fans.”

Including that season opening win, the Cougars have outscored their opponents 31-6 and are coming off of a 13-1 drubbing of Mount Tahoma on Tuesday.

“Our offense has been really good.”

Capital features two 3A Narrows League first team selections in Midstokke and Rachel Wofford up front with another first teamer, Chloe Lamenzo, in midfield and hope to improve on their 10-4-2 record last year and early exit from the district tournament.

“We want to win league really bad and our biggest goal is to make it to state.”

The biggest hurdles lie ahead with games against the two top teams in 3A Narrows league looming next week. The Cougars travel to North Thurston on Tuesday and face Central Kitsap at home next Thursday.

Meanwhile, Midstokke also made a very big decision since the beginning of the season. She committed to play her college soccer for NCAA Division II Northwest Nazarene last week.

High School Football Power Rankings: Bears Take Over the Top Spot

olympiabear

Four local teams remain undefeated and by outscoring their opponents by 117 points so far this season, the Olympia Bears sit on top of the Oly Sports Power Rankings this week. Yelm held the top spot last week but allowed 28 unanswered points in the first half to Timberline and took a big tumble.

——————————————–

1. Olympia Bears (3-0 overall, 1-0 4A Narrows)
Last week: #2 (+1)
Previous game: Beat South Kitsap, 48-7
Next game: @ Timberline (1-2 overall, 0-1 4A Narrows) – South Sound Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: 131-14. Olympia is dominating this season thus far. Granted the combined records of the three teams they played is 2-7. Next up, Timberline, who they should beat soundly, but then that’s what I said last week about #1 Yelm.


2. Black Hills Wolves (3-0 overall)

Last week: #3 (+2)
Previous game: Beat North Kitsap, 21-6
Next game: vs. Columbia River (2-1) – Tumwater Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: The Wolves are still going strong beating a North Kitsap squad that was ranked in both week one and week two. While it looks like the Vikings might not be as strong as expected, the Wolves have shown a ton of improvement and now look like the favorites to knock off a Columbia River team that was upset by Centralia on Friday night.


6. River Ridge Hawks (3-0 overall, 1-0 2A SPSL)

Last week: #6 (+3)
Previous game: Beat Franklin Pierce, 26-19
Next game: @ Orting (3-0 overall, 1-0 2A SPSL) – Cardinal Stadium, Orting – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Franklin Pierce has given the Hawks fits since joining the 2A SPSL but this season went to River Ridge giving them a big boost in the race for the league title. But now a road trip to Orting looms. The Cardinals (the second Cardinals opponent in a row) are 3-0 with wins over 1A Eatonville, 1A Cascade Christian and a league win over Clover Park.


4. Tumwater T-Birds (3-0 overall)

Last week: #7 (+3)
Previous game: Beat Timberline, 49-6
Next game: @ Lake City, ID (1-3) – Lake City HS, Couer D’Alene, ID – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Tumwater beat up on 1A La Center, as one would expect and now face a Lake City, Idaho squad that they destroyed last season and is 1-3 this season with losses to two other Washington schools.


5. North Thurston Rams (2-1 overall, 1-0 3A Narrows)

Last week: #8 (+3)
Previous game: Beat Wilson, 14-13
Next game: vs. Central Kitsap (1-2 overall, 1-0 3A Narrows) – South Sound Stadium – Thursday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Considering how bad Wilson looked in weeks one and two, the one point win by North Thurston is concerning. It took a one yard run by Zion Kirk in the fourth quarter to get the win and improve to 1-0 in the 3A Narrows. On Thursday they get Central Kitsap, a team that is solidly in the middle along with North Thurston, Shelton, Capital and more in what looks to be a mediocre league this season.


6. Shelton Highclimbers (2-1 overall, 1-0 3A Narrows)

Last week: #9 (+3)
Previous game: Beat Foss, 26-6
Next game: vs. Lincoln (3-0 overall, 1-0 3A Narrows) – Highclimbers Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: It has been two years since Shelton beat someone other than Mount Tahoma in 3A Narrows League play, so the win over a diminished Foss team was fantastic. They looked fantastic in the first half and have a solid running back in Willy Ruiz and Tyler Giraldes continues to improve at quarterback. But Lincoln comes to town this week so the goal probably should be just stay healthy and not get too discouraged by the clear class of the league.


7. Rainier Mountaineers (2-1 overall, 1-1 2B Pacific)

Last week: #4 (-3)
Previous game: Lost to Raymond, 27-13
Next game: vs. Ocosta (1-2 overall, 1-2 2B Pacific) – Rainier HS – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Last season, Raymond beat Rainier 42-0. This season, the Mountaineers kept things close down on the Willapa and get a date with the other power of the 2B Pacific, North Beach, in two weeks. But first, Ocosta, who has struggled to a 1-2 record against the lesser teams of the league.


8. Tenino Beavers (2-1 overall, 0-1 2A/1A Evergreen)

Last week: #5 (-3)
Previous game: Lost to Hoquiam, 20-13
Next game: @ Elma (3-0 overall, 1-0 2A/1A Evergreen) – Rottle Field, Montesano – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Tenino started out 2-0 last season before losing to Hoquiam. They then went into a tailspin losing four straight and five of their last seven games. This season, Tenino started 2-0 and then lost to Hoquiam. They head to Montesano to face 3-0 Elma hoping to avoid that tailspin again.


9. Timberline Blazers (1-2 overall, 1-0 4A Narrows)

Last week: #10 (+1)
Previous game: Beat Yelm, 35-21
Next game: vs. Olympia (3-0 overall, 1-0 4A Narrows) – South Sound Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Timberline played a decent schedule but went 0-2 to begin the season while Yelm played a weak schedule and went 2-0. That difference showed on Friday night when the Blazers jumped out to a 28-0 lead through the first half. Maybe the Blazers have figured some things out and they will need to because their next three games are brutal. Olympia followed by Bellarmine followed by Gig Harbor and then a hugely improved Stadium squad. 


10. Yelm Tornadoes (2-1 overall, 0-1 4A Narrows)

Last week: #1 (-9)
Previous game: Lost to Timberline, 35-21
Next game: @ South Kitsap (1-2 overall, 0-1 4A Narrows) – Knowles Field, Port Orchard – 7:00 PM

Notes: Timberline turned out not to be Steilacoom or Foss and now the Tornadoes will have to regroup with a trip to South Kitsap. South Kitsap hasn’t looked great but I’m not sure at all how this game will go.


11. Capital Cougars (0-3 overall, 0-1 3A Narrows)

Last week: #11 (no change)
Previous game: Lost to Lincoln, 71-46
Next game: vs. Foss (0-3 overall, 0-1 3A Narrows) – Ingersoll Stadium – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Capital’s first three games are so tough. Tumwater, Olympia then Lincoln. The Cougars and their freshman quarterback kept the game against the Abes close for a while and did put up 46 points in the loss and faces an undermanned Foss team on Friday night. Considering how mediocre the 3A Narrows League looks this season, despite their tough start, Capital still could make some noise this season.


12. Rochester Warriors (1-2 overall, 0-1 2A/1A Evergreen)

Last week: #12 (no change)
Previous game: Lost to Elma, 26-14
Next game: @ Forks (1-2 overall, 0-1 2A/1A Evergreen) – Forks High School – Friday, 7:00 PM

Notes: Eliminated from the playoffs last week and then a loss to a 1A league team. Sadly, that means the Warriors will still occupy the #12 spot with a trip to Forks as a reward.
