Meadowdale-Glacier Peak capsule

MEADOWDALE vs. GLACIER PEAK
Friday night at 8 p.m. at Edmonds Stadium
Records: Meadowdale: 3-0 league, 6-1 overall; Glacier Peak: 3-0 league, 6-1 overall
KEY PLAYERS
Meadowdale: Morgan Masanda, RB/DB (382 rushing yards, 8 rushing touchdowns); Michael Cummings, OL/ILB; Giavani Shepard, RB (304 rushing yards, 4 rushing touchdowns).
Glacier Peak: Michael Palmer, RB/OLB (752 rushing yards, 10 rushing touchdowns); Chris Beccera, QB (97-for-175 for 1,709 yards, 17 passing touchdowns, 3 interceptions); Sean Elledge, WR/S (26 catches for 604 yards, 8 receiving touchdowns, 103 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown); Austin Jacobsen, ILB; Nate Bussing, ILB.
OPPOSING COACH'S QUOTE
"Both are real strong football programs. They do it in different ways both offensively and defensively. Glacier Peak is very innovative offensively…Meadowdale on the other hand lets you know what's coming a little bit more. They just have a really good line and really good backs. It's going to be a really good matchup, two very good football teams, but with very contrasting styles on both sides of the ball."
-- Tony Umayam, Mountlake Terrace; Hawks lost to both teams by just three points.
KEY INJURIES
Meadowdale: Brian Marty, QB (broken leg); Dustin Spicknall, OL
Glacier Peak: None
How the Mavericks will win: The key for the Mavericks is to keep the Glacier Peak offense off the field and control the ball on offense. If Meadowdale can establish the run game with Giavani Shepard and Morgan Masanda and limit Glacier Peak's possessions, the Mavericks will win the 3A Wesco South.
How the Grizzlies will win: The Grizzlies need to utilize their high-powered offense. If Glacier Peak can consistently move the ball against the Meadowdale defense and avoid letting the Mavericks chew up the clock than the Grizzlies will have an advantage. The higher scoring the game becomes the more likely it is that the Grizzlies will win.
The Pick: Meadowdale 24, Glacier Peak 21
