SPORTS: Prep football capsule previews for Week 6

Life Christian

at Port Townsend

■ Time: Tonight at 7.

■ Last meeting: Life Christian 46-0 win in Tacoma, Oct. 9, 2010.

■ Records: Port Townsend 0-3 in league, 0-5 overall; Life Christian 2-1, 3-2.

■ At stake: The Redskins continue their quest to snap a 15-game losing streak with the Eagles coming to town tonight.

Life Christian began the season with high expectations and bounced back from a 1-2 start with two straight wins over Cedar Park Christian and Chimacum.

Port Angeles

at North Mason

■ Time: Tonight at 7.

■ Last meeting: Port Angeles 35-15 win in Port Angeles, Oct. 8, 2010.

■ Records: North Mason 0-3, 0-5; Port Angeles 3-0, 5-0.

■ At stake: The last time the Roughriders went to Belfair, they came home 26-12 losers (in 2009.)

Now, Port Angeles is looking to maintain its grip on first place in the Olympic League against the lone winless team.

While the Rider offense struggled some in its last outing — a 20-7 win — the defense held its opponent to two touchdowns or less for the fourth time this season.


at Sequim

■ Time: Tonight at 7.

■ Last meeting: Sequim 56-28 win in Kingston, Oct. 7, 2010.

■ Records: Sequim 3-0, 5-0; Kingston 2-1, 3-2.

■ At stake: Sequim gets star quarterback Frank Catelli back for tonight’s homecoming contest against the Buccaneers.

The senior missed last week’s game because of a controversial suspension, but the fourth-ranked Wolves still rolled to a 48-20 win over North Mason.

Sequim is going for its 24th straight league win.

Clallam Bay at Highland Christian

■ Time: Tonight at 7.

■ Last meeting: Clallam Bay 50-42 win in Clallam Bay, Oct. 8, 2010.

■ Records: Highland Christian 1-3, 1-4; Clallam Bay 1-2, 1-3.

■ At stake: The Bruins travel to Arlington tonight to take on Highland Christian in a Northwest Football League game.

Clallam Bay has had two weeks to prepare for the Knights, who are technically 1-4 on the season but have yet to win a game on the field (their lone win was a forfeit.)

A win tonight would put the Bruins in decent shape for a late-season run at the playoffs, with games against Tulalip (2-2), Muckleshoot (0-4) and Quilcene (2-2) following.


at Vashon Island

■ Time: Tonight at 7.

■ Last meeting: Chimacum 32-24 win in Port Townsend, Oct. 8, 2010.

■ Records: Vashon Island 1-2, 1-4; Chimacum 0-3, 0-5.

■ At stake: The struggling Cowboys will jump on the ferry to Vashon Island tonight for a 1A Nisqually League matchup.

Chimacum has yet to score more than one touchdown in a game this season and is coming off three straight lopsided losses.

The Cowboys may get a chance to light up the scoreboard some tonight, given how forgiving the Pirates’ defense has been this fall.

Vashon has surrendered an average of 45.8 points per game.


at Muckleshoot

■ Time: Tonight at 7.

■ Last meeting: Quilcene 36-32 win in Quilcene, Oct. 9, 2010.

■ Records: Muckleshoot 0-4, 0-4; Quilcene 1-2, 2-2.

■ At stake: The Rangers are looking to bounce back from a 48-18 loss to Lopez Island last weekend.

After starting the season with two straight wins, Quilcene has surrendered 100 points in a pair of losses to Evergreen Lutheran and Lopez.

Rainier Christian

at Crescent

■ Time: Saturday at 1 p.m.

■ Last meeting: Unknown.

■ Records: Crescent 2-2, 3-2; Rainier Christian 0-4, 0-4.

■ At stake: The Loggers have the perfect homecoming patsy coming to town this Saturday in Rainier Christian.

The Mustangs have lost 14 straight eight-man football games dating back to the 2010 campaign.

Meanwhile, Crescent is looking to build on last week’s 55-28 drubbing of Highland Christian.
