‘Press Coverage’: Week 9 prep football recap

The Herald’s staff breaks down how Week 9 set up the upcoming winner-to-state Week 10 playoff matchups.

With Week 9 of the prep football season in the books and winner-to-state games coming up, Herald writers Cameron Van Til, Zac Hereth and Josh Horton break down what happened this past Friday and what it means for Week 10.

Marysville Pilchuck made an emphatic statement with a blowout win over Snohomish, and the rest of Wesco 3A’s squads squared off in Week 9 crossover games with playoff seeding implications.

Glacier Peak edged Mount Vernon for Wesco 4A’s No. 3 seed while Lake Stevens and Monroe rolled to wins after already securing the league’s Nos. 1 and 2 seeds, respectively.

Week 10 matchups are set in the 2A Northwest/Sea-King Bi-District, with five top-10 teams bidding for just three state berths.

And King’s knocked off South Whidbey to claim a North Sound Conference title and the league’s No. 1 seed.
