Lee: Ferris 28-21. Richland is legit. Ferris got all it could handle in a postseason tuneup against Mead. I’ve been tracking this for a while and the Saxons’ offense is very much run heavy. The passing game hasn’t developed like I thought it would. The Saxons could win comfortably if they find some consistency in the air. Otherwise, they’ll have to gut it out.
Adams: Ferris 28-17. Richland throws the ball well. Ferris defends it even better. The Saxons had a stellar game plan against the top passer in the Northwest – Brett Rypien and company – and they should do the same against the Bombers.
Shadle Park also finished its season 8-1 and earned the number one 3A berth from the GSL. The Highlanders are led by prep phenom Brett Rypien at quarterback, the junior finished his regular season with 3,226 yards while completing 67.6-percent of his passes. Shadle Park's receiving corps hosted five of the Top-8 in receiving yards in the GSL. The only team to beat the Highlanders this season was Ferris.
Both games will be live on channel 6-2 or Comcast channel 306, also live streaming will be available on www.nwprepsnow.com.
