Some key prep games this week

Things are definitely getting interesting in several Eastern Washington and North Idaho football leagues.

In the Greater Spokane League, Central Valley (5-1) faces Mead (5-1) on Thursday. In key games Friday, Mt. Spokane (1-5) is at University (2-4); Shadle Park (2-4) goes against North Cenral (1-5) at Albi; and Ferris (5-1) faces Lewis and Clark (3-3).

In the Great Northern League Friday, col-leader West Valley (5-1, 3-0) goes to East Valley (5-1, 2-1) while the other co-leader, surprising Pullman (5-1, 3-0) has a bye. Cheney (3-3, 1-1) visits Deer Park (3-3, 0-2). This is a correction. I originally said the EV-WV game was at WV.

In the Northeast A League, Chewelah (5-1, 3-0) and Freeman (5-1, 3-0) face off Friday at Chewelah in what should decide the league championship.

In a game that could go far in deciding the Northeast 2B title Friday, co-leaders Reardan (4-1, 2-0) and Lind-Ritzville/Sprague (5-0, 2-0) meet in Ritzville. Reardan is coming off a big win over Colfax.

In Southeast 2B play, league-leading Tekoa-Oakesdale/Rosalia (6-0, 4-0) visits DeSales (3-1, 1-1) on Friday.
