Let the PLAYOFFS begin!

Chiawana enjoys a home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. As long as they win, their next game is at home, until the final, which will be held at the Tacoma Dome. Here is a bit of commentary regarding our next game:

Lewis and Clark Tigers come in with honest but average tendencies, and should provide for a great warm-up game for the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks. The Tigers sport a record of 5-4 overall, 3-2 in district. Their record and 4A ranking of 28th is similar to that of one of our conference opponents, the Richland Bombers, who are ranked 30th, and have records of 4-5 overall and 4-3 in district play. If this comparison is any indication, we should expect a solid opponent, with favorable match-ups at key positions. The Lewis and Clark Tigers are without their starting quarterback, who is out for the season with an injury. The second-string Tiger is a game-but-young sophomore who will need to have an amazing game if the Tigers have a chance to win over the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks.


The Walla Walla Blue Devils (#21, 5-4, 5-2) travel to Spokane to take on the Gonzaga Prep Bullpups (#10, 8-1, 5-0). It is entirely possible that we will meet either team in the third playoff game. Walla Walla is a conference battle, which the Riverhawks won earlier in the season, at Walla Walla. Although Gonzaga Prep sports an impressive record, their one loss was to a 3A team, and their wins were close, except when playing the worst teams in their league. I believe that WW is a stronger team than they appear to be on paper, and GP is weaker. This dynamic should make for a great game to watch, if you have the chance.

The Wenatchee Panthers and Davis Pirates both have a bye this week. Each team is on our side of the bracket. Apparently the Big 9 conference winner is their only entry into the playoffs. As far as the Pirates go, their game against the Moses Lake Chiefs turned out to be their last game of the regular season. Rather than play them again, the regular season game was counted as their first playoff game, and Davis gets the bye.

In the 3A bracket, you will find local teams Kennewick Lions and the Kamiakin Braves, both of which played against Chiawana with passion and intensity. They may be worth watching in the playoffs. Also, the 3A bracket boasts the state's highest ranked team - #1 Bellevue Wolverines.
