MARYSVILLE – It doesn’t get much bigger than this when it comes to high school football.

When Marysville-Pilchuck hosts Arlington Friday at Quil Ceda Stadium at 7 p.m., M-P will be playing for its playoff life.

After losing to Ferndale last Friday, the Tomahawks need to win to get in. Arlington can lose and still get in due to wins earlier this season.

Both teams are 5-2. Both could finish as high as second depending on the Oak Harbor-Squalicum outcome. But M-P could finish as low as fifth if it loses. The top four advance.

Arlington goes into the game on a high note after whipping Everett 49-28. The Eagles actually trailed at halftime 28-16, but outscored the Seagulls 33-0 in the second half to win going away.

Quarterback Anthony Whitis leads the offense with Griffin Gardoski his favorite receiver, but he spreads the ball around.

M-P comes into the game after a disappointing 42-21 loss to Ferndale.

Trenton Hurst ran for 111 yards on 17 carries and a 3-yard touchdown for the Tomahawks. Jordan Justice had 74 yards on just six carries. Bryan Sanders had a 95-yard kickoff return for a TD, and he ran the ball four times for 25 yards. Dillon Kuk led the receivers with four grabs for 52 yards. Quarterback Jake Elwood had the other TD on a 14-yard run.

In another Wesco 3A game, Oak Harbor got by Marysville Getchell 42-14. Caleb Koellmer threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns for the Chargers, 2-5. One was for 39 yards to Landyn Olsen and other 13 yards to Trey Padgett. Nathan Broome caught five passes for 45 yards.

In 2A football, Lakewood won a non-league game over Orting 41-6.

Quarterback Jared Taylor hit eight receivers and racked up 338 yards and four touchdowns through the air while adding 134 yards and two scores on the ground. He hit 26 of 37 passes. Receiver Michai Harris had eight catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
