State quarterfinals set for Saturday


The three surviving Twin Harbors football teams will each play their state quarterfinal contests on Saturday.

Taholah and Montesano are scheduled for back-to-back contests at Aberdeen’s Stewart Field.

The Chitwhins will host perennial state power Lummi in a Class 1B quarterfinal planned for 3 p.m. That contest was originally scheduled for 1 p.m., but was moved back to accommodate Lummi’s travel time, Taholah athletic director Melissa Straka said.

The Bulldogs will take on state 1A poll leader King’s approximately 30 minutes following the end of the Taholah-Lummi contest. The 1A quarterfinal is scheduled for 6, but 6:30 or 6:45 p.m. might be a more realistic starting time.

It will be King’s second consecutive trip to Grays Harbor following the Knights’ 28-13 victory at Hoquiam last Saturday.

Tickets to the Montesano-King’s contest will be pre-sold throughout the week at the Montesano High School ASB office. Admission will be $8 for adults and $6 for students and senior citizens.

Raymond, which beat Napavine at Stewart Field last Saturday, has a considerably longer road trip in store this week. The Seagulls will take on LaConner in a 2B quarterfinal set for 3 p.m. at Mount Vernon High School.

Saturday’s winners advance to the state semifinals Nov. 23-24 at the Tacoma Dome.
