Here’s the updated Class 2A postseason projections. Unlike some leagues in 4A and 3A, there are no playoff-qualifying crossover games in Week 9 for any 2A leagues or districts.


District 1
Four state berths
Tuesday, Nov. 3
NWC No. 5 Mount Baker at CC No. 4 Granite Falls
Friday, Nov. 6
NWC No. 4 Squalicum at CC No. 1 Archbishop Murphy
NWC No. 3 Blaine at CC No. 2 Cedarcrest
CC No. 3 South Whidbey at NWC No. 2 Burlington-Edison
Saturday, Nov. 7
Winner of CC No. 4/NWC No. 5 at NWC No. 1 Lynden


Winning teams will be seeded in this order:
CC No. 1
NWC No. 1
NWC No. 2
CC No. 2

If teams of the same seed win, the EvCo team will receive the higher seed into the state playoffs. For instance, if EvCo No. 1 W.F. West and GSHL No. 1 Mark Morris both win, W.F. West will receive the district’s No. 1 seed and Mark Morris the No. 2 seed.
