Blackhawks (4-0) update: Lummi picked up its second forfeit victory of the season last week against Muckleshoot Tribal. The Blackhawks started off the year with a forfeit win over Seattle Lutheran, and in between beat Neah Bay 28-0 and Tacoma Baptist 58-28. In that Sept. 15 win over Tacoma Baptist, Lummi rushed for more than 400 yards and got five touchdowns from Caleb Revey.

Knights (4-0) update: Sunnyside Christian stayed perfect with a 66-6 victory over visiting Entiat Friday. Quarterback Chance Marsh threw for 247 yards and six touchdowns. Luke Wagenaar caught five passes for 99 yards and three touchdowns, while Kyler Marsh had 74 yards and a TD rushing and 106 yards receiving.

Key to the game: This will mark Lummi’s first trip outside of Whatcom County this season and it third-straight on-field meeting with a team ranked among the top five in Class 1B. The Blackhawks need to get off the bus ready to play.

Player to watch: Junior Quincy Lane had a pair of interceptions against Neah Bay in Week 2. The Blackhawks defense will have its hands full with a Sunnyside Christian attack that has averaged 52.5 points per game this year.

Prediction: Lummi 48-42.
