This week’s nominees
Marysville Pilchuck vs. Glacier Peak at Veterans Memorial Stadium (Snohomish), Friday, 7 p.m.
The Class 3A No. 7 Tomahawks (3-0, 2-0 Wesco 3A North) visit the 4A No. 8 Grizzlies in an intriguing interclassification showdown between state-playoff contenders. Marysville Pilchuck is getting its first big test after outscoring its first three opponents by an average of 43.4 points per game, including last week’s 63-13 drubbing of Marysville Getchell for the Tomahawks’ 10th straight Berry Bowl victory. Glacier Peak (3-0) is coming off of a 49-7 statement victory over perennial 4A playoff contender Woodinville.
Archbishop Murphy at Lake Stevens, Friday, 7 p.m.
Traditional Snohomish County powerhouses square off when the 2A Wildcats visit 4A powerhouse Lake Stevens in a non-league matchup. Archbishop Murphy (2-1, 1-0 Northwest 2A) beat Sehome 20-10 last week in its conference opener. The Vikings (1-0) earned an impressive 20-3 victory over 3A top-ranked O’Dea in their season opener. Lake Stevens beat the Wildcats 26-7 in the spring.
Arlington at Stanwood, Friday, 7 p.m.
The Eagles look for their 12th straight Stilly Cup victory Friday against the rival Spartans. Arlington (2-1, 1-1 Wesco 3A North) suffered its first loss of the season when it fell 18-17 to 3A No. 8 Ferndale last week. Stanwood (1-2, 1-1 Wesco 3A North) is coming of its first win of the season — a 34-14 victory over Oak Harbor. The Eagles won last season’s matchup 17-14.
