West Salem at South Salem, 7 p.m.
On the air: Radio on KBZY 1490 AM; television on CCTV2 at 11:59 p.m.
The Titans (6-0 Greater Valley Conference, 6-1 overall) can sew up at least a share of the league title, the team’s first since 2012, with a win in this game. But it’s never easy when West Salem plays South Salem, even a South Salem team that is 3-4 on the season and has lost three of its past four games.
Sprague at West Albany, 7 p.m.
On the air: Radio on KSHO 920 AM.
The Olympians (5-1 GVC, 6-1 overall) have won five straight and none of those games have been close. Sprague has the No. 2 scoring offense in Class 6A (49.5 points per game) and a West Albany team that has given up an average of 32 points in its past two games, both losses, will have a tough time keeping up.
McKay at North Salem, 7 p.m.
This is the league finale for the Vikings (2-5 GVC) and a must-win game if they are to finish the regular season high enough to get an at-large berth into the state playoffs for the second year in a row.
North Medford at McNary, 7 p.m.
The Celtics (5-2) come into this non-league game with four straight wins and in third place in the GVC. The Black Tornado (4-3) have lost three of their last four games.
Dallas at Crescent Valley, 7 p.m.
A win in this game locks up a state playoff berth for the Dragons (3-1 Mid-Willamette Conference, 6-1 overall).
Silverton at Central, 7 p.m.
On the air: Radio on KAJC 90.1 FM.
This league finale for Silverton (3-2 MWC, 5-2 overall) is all about playoff positioning for the Foxes, while for Central (3-1 MWC, 4-3) this game has greater implications. The Panthers, who lost 32-6 to league-leading Lebanon last week, have been dealing with the injury bug, but even if they get healthy they are No. 11 in the OSAA’s power rankings and wins in their final two games of the regular season would improve that ranking.
Molalla at Woodburn, 7 p.m.
The Bulldogs (3-4) have won two of their past three games, but Class 4A Molalla – a near-by team Woodburn rarely plays – will be a higher level of competition.
Cascade at North Marion, 7 p.m.
North Marion (3-0 Oregon West, 4-2 overall) has clinched at least a share of the league championship, the school’s first since 1982. But last year’s 4A state champion Cascade (2-1 OWC, 3-3 overall) can split the league championship with a win in this game.
Stayton at Newport, 7 p.m.
The Eagles (2-1 OWC, 3-3 overall) are coming off their first league loss, a tough 13-6 defeat to North Marion, but a win in this game against the Cubs (0-3 OWC, 0-6) gives Stayton a chance at winning a share of the league championship.
Willamina at Taft, 7 p.m.
The Bulldogs (1-3 West Valley, 3-4 overall) have won two of their past three and a win in this game would prove the program is moving up a level in its rebuilding effort and will be a contender in the league next year.
Santiam Christian at Amity, 7 p.m.
Both of these teams have pretty much sewn up berths in the 3A state playoffs, but this game has different implications for each team. Santiam Christian (3-1 WVL, 5-2 overall) has struggled offensively the past three games and wants to improve its state power ranking from No. 10. Amity (4-0 WVL, 6-0 overall) should be fresh after having off weeks in two of the past four weeks, and the Warriors are still in the league championship picture with Dayton, who they play in the season finale next week.
Horizon Christian at Sheridan, 7 p.m.
It’s hard to gauge how Horizon Christian stacks up with Sheridan; the Hawks have forfeited three of their past four games while Sheridan (0-4 WVL) has lost six straight.
Colton at Gervais, 7 p.m.
A Gervais (1-3 PacWest Conference, 2-5 overall) team that has lost three straight is trying to break back into the win column while Colton (2-2 PWC, 5-2 overall) is trying to improve enough to get an at-large state playoff berth.
Jefferson at Salem Academy, 7 p.m.
The Crusaders (3-1 PWC, 5-2 overall) have quietly won their past three games by huge margins, a combined 179-0. But more importantly for the team is it has been thrust back in the league playoff picture and can win a share of the PacWest with wins in this game and against Colton in the regular season finale.
Blanchet Catholic at Chemawa, 7 p.m.
The only question left in the season for the Braves (0-4 PWC, 0-5 overall) is if they will score a point this season. Meanwhile, a 21-6 win by Blanchet (3-1 PWC, 5-2 overall) against Scio last week thrusts the Cavaliers back into the league championship picture.
Dayton at Scio, 7 p.m.
This late-season non-league game is between state powers, No. 2 Dayton (7-0) and No. 3 Scio (6-1) who go back into league play next week with games that will determine league championships.
Central Linn at St. Paul, 7 p.m.
St. Paul will have its Hall of Fame induction ceremony at halftime. This year’s inductees are Pete Popoff, Bert Bernard, Joan Coleman, John Coleman, and the 1991 state championship football team.
Santiam at Regis, 7 p.m.
The Wolverines (1-1 TRC, 6-1 overall) have the opportunity to change the complexity of the conference title race with a win against No. 1-ranked Regis (2-0 TRC, 5-2 overall).
Corbett at Kennedy, 7 p.m.
The Trojans (6-1 overall) get a brief reprieve from the tough Tri-River schedule and play a Class 4A Corbett team that is playing an independent schedule.
Perrydale at Sherman, 7 p.m.
Sherman (5-0 1A Special District 4, 6-1 overall) has clinched at least a share of the league championship. Perrydale (3-1 1A SD4, 4-2 overall) can get back into the league title conversation with a win in this game, but both teams are pretty much locked into the state playoffs so all it will really change is power ranking position.
Falls City at Yoncalla, 7 p.m.
The 6-0 loss to Triangle Lake last week should have complicated things for Falls City (3-1 1A Special District 3 West Division, 3-4 overall) as it tries to make the state playoffs for the first time in decades, but the team’s league playoff path is known: the Mountaineers play Yoncalla against at home Oct. 28 with a state playoff berth on the line.
