Skyline, Eastlake host Homecoming games, Issaquah faces Ballard | Prep football news

All three teams will be home on the Plateau Friday night for prep football games in Week 7.

Skyline (5-1, 3-0) VS. Newport (5-1, 2-1), 7 p.m. Friday

The Spartans have had little trouble since entering Crown Division play, beating Roosevelt, Garfield and Ballard by a combined score of 131-25.

The Knights, which were handled by Issaquah to open the division slate, also own wins over the Beavers and Roughriders and can keep their hopes for a division title alive with a win this week.

A Skyline win coupled with another by Issaquah would set up a winner-take-all showdown next week.

Coach Chris Bennett’s Eagles have won three straight after back-to-back losses and are firmly in control of their Crown Division destiny. Win its next two games and Issaquah will be headed to the 4A KingCo title game.

The first of those comes against a Ballard team that has lost its last two games allowing 38 and 54 points to Newport and Skyline respectively.

Eastlake (4-2, 2-1) VS. Meadowdale (5-1, 3-0)

The Wolves step out of conference for Homecoming, facing 3A Wesco foe Meadowdale.

The Mavericks enter the game with three straight wins and have allowed only 16 points combined since a 20-14 loss to Edmonds-Woodway a month ago. Eastlake has regained its stride after a 45-18 loss to Bothell, beating Inglemoor and Woodinville to stay alive for a playoff berth.
