Lynden still No 2, Baker still No. 7 in latest poll

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 23, 2013 

None of Whatcom County's three top-10 ranked football teams moved in the latest edition of the Associated Press Washington State High School Football Poll released Wednesday, Oct. 23.

Lynden (7-0, 5-0 NWC 2A/3A), which beat Burlington-Edison 45-24 last week, remained No. 2 among Class 2A schools. Tumwater was ranked No. 1 over Lynden for the second straight week despite identical overall records. First-place votes were split seven-to-seven last week, but Tumwater earned 10 of the 14 first-place votes this time.

Lynden likely will get its biggest test of the regular season so far when it travels to play Ferndale at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.

Mount Baker (6-1, 3-0 NWC 1A) also stayed put at No. 7 following a 50-7 win against Friday Harbor. The Mountaineers have won four straight since losing to Lynden 27-20 in Week 3. Baker hosts Blaine at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, in a matchup between conference unbeatens.

Ferndale (6-1, 4-1 NWC 2A/3A) remained outside the top 10 of the Class 3A poll despite beating Bellingham 61-28 last week. The Golden Eagles were ranked No. 9 two weeks ago before suffering their only loss of the season to Sedro-Woolley.

Lummi (5-2, 2-1 NWFL 1B) remained ranked No. 5 in Class 1B. The Blackhawks scored a 74-26 win against Clallam Bay on the road last week. Lummi has a pivotal conference game against Lopez at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, in Lummi.

Camas remained ranked No. 1 in Class 4A, earning all 15 first-place votes. Bellevue was ranked No. 1 unanimously in the 3A ranks with 14 votes. Undefeated Zillah earned all 14 votes in Class 1A, Morton White Pass topped the polls in 2B and Neah Bay earned all 10 1B first-place votes.
