And then there were two. After starting the year off with seven football teams ranked by a statewide panel of sports writers and editors, Whatcom County only has two remaining in the final Association Press Washington State High School Football Poll of the regular season.

Meridian remained at No. 3 in the Class 1A poll, despite its unblemished 9-0 record and a 52-29 win over Mount Baker last week. The Trojans, who got one first-place vote and will host Bothell Cedar Park Christian in the 1A Northwest District Playoffs Friday at Anacortes, sit behind No. 1 Royal (9-0) and No. 2 Connell (8-1).

Ferndale (9-0) also sits behind a one-loss team at No. 3 in the Class 3A rankings, despite its 62-7 win over Marysville-Getchell. The Golden Eagles, who host Ballard in the Class 3A district playoffs Friday at Civic Stadium, were tied with O’Dea last week, but slipped to No. 3 this week behind unanimous No. 1 Eastside Catholic.

The Mountaineers’ loss to Meridian dropped them out of the rankings, though they host King’s Friday in the district playoffs.

Woodinville (4A), Archbishop Murphy (2A), Kalama (2B) led their respective classifications, while Odessa and Sunnyside Christian shared the top spot in Class 1B.
