Far West League

Brookings-Harbor at Marshfield

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: KMHS (91.3 FM) and KURY (95.3 FM)

Outlook: The Pirates will celebrate the legacy of former coach Kent Wigle and unveil their new scoreboard in their regular-season home finale while trying to keep their record perfect before next week’s Civil War contest. It shouldn’t be a big problem with Marshfield flying high on both offense and defense and the winless Bruins struggling. Brookings-Harbor has scored just 27 points in six games. Marshfield has scored at least 34 points in all but one of its wins.

North Bend at Douglas

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: K-Light (98.7 FM)

Outlook: North Bend is in the rare position of trying to bounce back from a loss after being humbled by South Umpqua last week and now the Bulldogs face the situation of needing to win Friday to secure a spot in the postseason. North Bend’s offense struggled against the Lancers and the Bulldogs may switch things up a little against the Trojans to try to get more of a passing attack going. Douglas is tied with North Bend and South Umpqua for second place, its wins over Siuslaw and Brookings-Harbor.

South Umpqua at Siuslaw

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: KCST (106.9 FM)

Outlook: The Lancers will look to build off their big win over North Bend and strengthen their postseason resume when they visit the Vikings. Wins this week and next week at Douglas would guarantee a spot at least in the play-in round and South Umpqua could share the league title if North Bend beats Douglas and then Marshfield next week. Siuslaw, meanwhile, is trying to find a positive in its winless season.

Mountain Valley Conference

Glide at Coquille

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: KSHR (97.3 FM)

Outlook: Like North Bend, the Red Devils are in the rare situation of coming off a regular-season loss after their two-point setback at La Pine last week. The Hawks broke Coquille’s 23-game regular-season win streak and now the Red Devils have a homecoming date with a vastly improved Glide team that has its own dreams of the postseason. Glide has scored at least 32 points in every game but its own loss at La Pine (33-12) and outscored Pleasant Hill 53-41 last Friday. Having lost last week, there’s little chance of Coquille looking ahead to next week's showdown with Harrisburg.

Sunset Conference

Reedsport at Bandon

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: No local radio

Outlook: The Brave and Tigers play a key match in the Class 2A playoff chase after Bandon opened league play with consecutive wins over Waldport and Toledo. The Tigers are tied with Gold Beach for first place at 2-0 while Reedsport is 1-1 with its loss coming at Gold Beach. If the young Bandon squad can pull off a third straight victory, the Tigers would be in great shape for a playoff spot. Reedsport would greatly improve its own chances by spoiling the Tigers’ homecoming.

Toledo at Gold Beach

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: KGBR (92.7 FM)

Outlook: Last year, the Panthers and Boomers shared the league title. This year, Toledo has been struggling, its only win coming against Myrtle Point in the league opener. But Toledo put up a good fight against Bandon last week, losing when a last-second field goal was off the mark. Gold Beach, meanwhile, has been on a roll with its senior-led lineup since league play began, both with the running of Yancy Rangel and Travor Walker and the passing of Taylor Mather, a third-year starter at quarterback.

Myrtle Point at Waldport

Time: 7 p.m.

Radio: No local radio

Outlook: This is probably the best chance for a league win for both squads, which come into the game winless. Waldport has scored just two touchdowns this year, though one came last week in its loss to Reedsport. Myrtle Point hasn’t been much better, but got two scores last week against Gold Beach after the Panthers built a big lead. A win would be huge for the future for Myrtle Point, which had 19 total players, but 10 freshmen.

Mountain Skyline League

Powers at Elkton

Time: 3 p.m.

Radio: No local radio

Outlook: If Powers has any chance of getting into the Class 1A playoffs again, the Cruisers need to either beat the Elks this week or win at Days Creek next week. Elkton is 4-1 while Powers is just 2-4, but the two teams had very similar results against both their common opponents: Camas Valley (blowout losses) and Prospect (blowout wins). In its win against Prospect last week, Powers got six total touchdowns from Jamason Kellogg. A game like that this week could go a long way toward helping the Cruisers advance to the crossover round against the league’s east division.
