Meadowdale vs. Eastside Catholic

When: Saturday night, 7 p.m.

Where: Eastside Catholic H.S.

Records: Eastside Catholic (4-0 Metro, 9-0 overall, ranked No. 2 in AP poll). Meadowdale (3-1 Wesco 3A South, 7-2 overall)

Mountlake Terrace vs. Kennedy

When: Saturday night, 7 p.m.

Records: Kennedy (6-0 Seamount League, 7-1 overall, ranked No. 8 in AP poll). Mountlake Terrace (2-2 Wesco 3A South, 5-4 overall)

Scouting report: Kennedy dominated a weak Seamount League and really only had one legitimately good win, a 26-20 victory over Kingco 4A Roosevelt. In the season opener, Kennedy ws crushed by Mount Si, which is no shame since Mount Si is the No. 3 team in the state and has only lost to Bellevue. Kennedy is led by quarterback Conner Richardson and running back Colin Cossette.
