Two local prep football teams clinched state tournament berths Friday.
Lake Stevens remained undefeated with a 56-0 win over Kentlake in a Week 10 playoff game.
In another Week 10 playoff contest, Snohomish held on for a 42-35 win over Garfield.
Here are recaps and statistics from all of Friday’s local games:
Lake Stevens 56, Kentlake 0
Lake Stevens shut out visiting Kentlake to clinch a state tournament berth for the fifth consecutive year.
The Vikings (10-0) ran 30 plays in the first half and converted 21 of them for first downs, taking a 42-0 halftime lead.
Lake Stevens’ Tre long completed 11 of 13 passing attempts for 161 yards and two touchdowns. Kasen Kinchen recorded six receptions for 136 yards and two touchdowns, and Tom Lewis ran for 158 yards and two touchdowns for the Vikings.
Marysville Getchell 43, Cascade 40
Caleb Koellmer’s 1-yard touchdown run with seven seconds on the clock lifted Marysville Getchell to a win over Cascade and a 5-5 season record after a back-and-forth battle in a non-conference game at Quil Ceda Stadium.
The Chargers reached five wins for the first time since 2013, and Marysville Getchell coach Davis Lura credited his 22 seniors with fueling the culture change.
“We set a goal at the beginning of the season to change the mindset around here, and our seniors were determined to do that,” Lura said. “I think we did a good job of doing that this year, and to come out on top in a shootout was something we haven’t been able to do.”
Marysville Getchell was familiar with Cascade’s Wing-T offense after having seen it in Wesco 3A play against Ferndale and Oak Harbor, but the Bruins still gave the Chargers all they could handle.
Davanta Murphy-McMillan ran for three scores and Max Nelson added two long touchdown runs for Cascade, which finished the season at 2-8.
Nathan Broome caught four passes for 91 yards and a touchdown for Marysville Getchell, which had seven receivers record catches.
On the final drive, Koellmer and the Chargers’ offense took possession with 1 minute, 36 seconds remaining and worked its way downfield employing mostly run-pass option plays called by Koellmer.
“(Koellmer) started since he was a freshman, and this is the year for him to be able do all this stuff,” Lura said. “He knows the offense better than I do, and a lot of our success has to do with his decision-making.”
On fourth-and-goal, Koellmer dialed up another run-pass option for the game-winning touchdown, and Lura hopes it marks a jumping-off point for future success at Marysville Getchell.
“Being relatively new, what we’ve always battled is establishing traditions,” Lura said. “After the game, our seniors told our underclassmen, ‘We’ve shown you the way. Now it’s your turn to pick up the ball and keep making things better.’”
Timberline 21, Oak Harbor 0
Oak Harbor saw its season come to an end with a loss against host Timberline in a winner-to-state Week 10 playoff game at South Sound Stadium.

Oak Harbor (7-3) has been knocked out of state-tournament contention by Timberline in two of the past three seasons.
Interlake 14, Lynnwood 13

The Trojans (7-3) are heading to the state playoffs for the 21st time in the past 25 years.
Lynden Christian 42, King’s 14
