4A state football games set

The dates and times have been set for the State 4A first-round football playoff games involving the three Greater Spokane League teams.

Defending state champ Ferris (9-1) and Central Valley (8-2) square off Friday at Joe Albi Stadium. Kickoff is at 6 p.m.

Mead (9-1) plays host to Skyline (7-3) Saturday afternoon at Albi. Kickoff is at 1.

For CV, it’s a chance at redemption. CV led Ferris 10-7 at halftime before the Saxons pulled away late for a 28-10 win in early October.

In Skyline, the Panthers face a team that won a 3A state title in 2008 before winning back-to-back titles when it moved up to 4A the following year. Ferris knocked off Skyline in the final last year.
