Stanwood at Arlington, Friday, 7 p.m.

Wesco 3A North leader Stanwood (4-0, 3-0 league) and rival Arlington (3-1, 2-1) meet in the annual Stilly Cup rivalry game. The hosting Eagles have won the past 12 meeting between these teams, but four of the past six meeting have been decided by one score.

Granite Falls at Sultan, Friday, 7 p.m.

The Tigers (1-3) and Turks (2-2) square off in the Black and Blue Bowl rivalry game, which serves as the Emerald Sound Conference opener for both teams. Granite Falls has won the past three matchups in this series, including a 48-0 rout last fall.

Mariner vs. Glacier Peak at Veterans Memorial Stadium

The unbeaten Marauders (4-0) and Grizzlies (3-1) clash in the Wesco 4A opener for both squads. Mariner is one of just two 4A teams in the state without a loss. GP, ranked second in the latest Associated Press high school football poll, looks to rebound from its first loss of the season.

Monroe vs. Mountlake Terrace at Edmonds Stadium

The Wesco 3A South favorite Bearcats (4-0, 2-0 league) look to remain unbeaten when they take on the upstart Hawks (3-1, 2-1) in a league battle. Monroe has scored 44 or more points in each of its four games. Mountlake Terrace, which went 1-7 last fall, is in search of its first 4-1 start since 2015.
