Football playoffs becoming clear

It’s the last week of regular season play in Idaho and the last week of regular season play in the Greater Spokane League, and the playoff picture is fairly clear.

Gonzaga Prep (7-1) and Ferris (8-0) get together Friday at Albi Stadium to decide the top two 4A play-in seeds. Kickoff is at 8.

There’s much on the line. For instance, how about a home play-in game? The Gonzaga Prep/Ferris winner will play at home the following week against the Columbia Basin Big Nine’s third seed, Wenatchee (5-3). Two weeks ago, Wenatchee lost 42-18 to Lake City of Coeur d’Alene (6-2), which was playing its first game with backup quarterback Bobby Traverse, a junior, starting for injured Mark Smyly.

The Ferris/G-Prep loser travels to face second-seed Richland (7-1). Richland lost 17-7 earlier to No. 1 seed Chiawana (7-0). Central Valley (5-3) travels to Chiawana.

In 3A, Mt. Spokane (7-1) will play host to CBBN third seed Kennewick (6-2). University (4-4) goes to either Kamiakin (8-0) or Eastmont (6-2) of Wenatchee. Kamiakin and Eastmont meet Friday to decide the top two seeds. The Kamiakin/Eastmont winner will entertain CBBN No. 4 Southridge (3-5) in play-in action.

Across the border, Coeur d’Alene (7-1) entertains crosstown rival Lake City on Friday. The game will decide the 5A Inland Empire League championship and where a rematch the following week will be played.
