This week’s nominees

Glacier Peak vs. Woodinville at Pop Keeney Stadium (Bothell), Thursday, 6 p.m.

The Grizzlies get a chance to make some noise in Class 4A when they travel for a Thursday night matchup with perennial powerhouse Woodinville. Glacier Peak (2-0) has outscored its opponents 85-40 this season. The Falcons (2-0) have made five straight trips to the state playoffs.

Lake Stevens vs. O’Dea at Memorial Stadium (Seattle), Friday, 5 p.m.

The 4A No. 5 Vikings take on top-ranked 3A squad O’Dea in a highly anticipated showdown between two of the state’s top programs. This is the season opener for Lake Stevens, which canceled its first two games after it suspended team activities due to two players testing positive for COVID-19. The Fighting Irish (2-0) already hold victories over 4A powers Union and Kennedy Catholic.

Marysville Getchell at Marysville Pilchuck, Friday, 7 p.m.

The Chargers look to end their nine-game losing streak against rival Marysville Pilchuck in the Berry Bowl. Marysville Getchell is 2-0 for the first time in the program’s 11-year history. The Tomahawks (2-0), ranked eighth in 3A, have outscored opponents 101 to 21 this season.

Edmonds-Woodway at Snohomish, Friday, 7 p.m.

The Warriors and Panthers meet in a key league game that serves as the Wesco 3A South opener for both squads. Edmonds-Woodway (0-2) was scheduled to open league play last week before rival Meadowdale pulled out due a positive COVID-19 test in the program. The Panthers (0-1) also had their league opener canceled last week due to a positive test in the Lynnwood program. Snohomish filled its schedule with a game against 2A No. 3 Squalicum, but then canceled that game due to “a large number of injuries,” according to Panthers athletic director Mark Perry.

Sedro-Woolley at Lakewood, Friday, 7 p.m.

The Cougars, ranked sixth in 2A, open Northwest 2A Conference play with a home game against Sedro-Woolley. Lakewood (1-1) is coming off a come-from-behind 43-30 victory over 1A No. 5 Lynden Christian. The Cubs (2-0) haven’t allowed a point this season after blowout wins over Mount Vernon and La Salle.
