1. Lynden: Lions easily dispatched Anacortes, even with a number of starters out last week.

2. Sedro-Woolley: The Cubs’ defense has been the best in the Northwest Conference.

3. Burlington-Edison: The Tigers were mighty impressive during their win against Ferndale.

4. Squalicum: Facing a brutal early schedule, the Storm is better than their record shows.

5. Blaine: Borderites stole a huge one-point road victory in what was the game of the week.

6. Sehome: Mariners have more than enough talent to rebound from a tough loss.

7. Ferndale: The 1-3 Golden Eagles are in desperate need of a win this week.

8. Mount Baker: Strong running game, tough defense: The Mountaineers are back.

9. Meridian: Trojans capitalized on turnovers last week and took care of business.

10. Nooksack Valley: Pioneers can move the ball, but can they finish drives and defend?

12. Anacortes: Seahawks don’t quite have the skill to compete with the rest of the 2As.

13. Bellingham: Tanner Aliff helped carry the Red Raiders to their first win in 16 games.
