PREP FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS: Quilcene in a rematch, Neah Bay heading south

POULSBO — And then there were two. No. 4 Quilcene (8-0) and Neah Bay (5-5) are the lone remaining North Olympic Peninsula high school football teams still alive in the postseason.

The Rangers, Sea-Tac League champions, enjoyed a bye last week in the opening round of the Class 1B Quad-District Playoffs. They will face a rematch against Sea-Tac League foe Tacoma Baptist on Saturday night at 6 at North Kitsap High School in Poulsbo.

Quilcene walloped the Crusaders 66-26 back on Oct. 7, scoring 42 second-quarter points to turn a close game into a rout.
