The Class 2A Cougars host the 4A Jaguars in an intriguing interclassification Week 1 clash. Lakewood, which made the 2A state quarterfinals in 2019, was originally scheduled to face 2019 2A state runner-up Steilacoom before the Sentinels had to cancel for COVID-related issues. North Creek made the Week 10 playoffs in 2019.

The Eagles and Warriors meet in a nonleague game that features one of the top contenders in Wesco 3A South.
Seattle Prep at Archbishop Murphy, 7 p.m.
