Football prepares for home playoff game


Blaine varsity football is preparing for its first home playoff game since 2013. Though the Borderites finished at the bottom of their division, they made the playoffs simply by being in the higher division of the Northwest Conference.

Blaine will take on Liberty High School at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 1.

Liberty finished the regular season with a 6–2 record overall, and 3–2 in KingCo conference games. Blaine’s regular season record is 1–7. The two schools haven’t played each other since 2016, when Liberty beat Blaine 27–24 in a district playoff game.

The Borderites lost their final regular season game to conference-leading Lynden 34–7. Despite the score, Blaine played well and had no turnovers for the first time this season.

“We’re getting better. They’re playing their tails off,” said Blaine head coach Jay Dodd. “I know we haven’t won many ball games but if we play up to our capability I know we can get one on Friday.”
