Vikings end season perfect | Football

POULSBO — Cardinals are not a migratory bird, but for the next two days North Kitsap Stadium will host two flocks of them. The Kingston Buccaneers and North Kitsap Vikings, however, will look to send those Cardinals back home with some ruffled feathers.

Finishing the season with a perfect conference record, and earning a home playoff game, the North Kitsap Vikings will square up against the Orting Cardinals Friday (Nov. 8) for a shot at a state berth.

Kickoff for the game against Orting is 7 p.m. at North Kitsap Stadium.

Playing a middle-of-the-pack team at home give the Vikings a fighting chance to play in the state championships.

Orting finished the season 4-3 in the conference, 6-3 overall. They finished the season tied with Franklin Pierce in fifth.

The Vikings, on the other hand, won the Olympic League title outright with a 7-0 conference record. The Vikings finished the regular season with a 31-14 victory over the Olympic Trojans Nov. 1.

The winner of the Orting/Vikings game earns the No. 1 seed from the District 3 playoffs to the state championships. The loser is out.

The Bucs, who finished 6-1 in the conference, also earned a home game. The Bucs play at 7 p.m., Saturday at North Kitsap Stadium. They face the Franklin Pierce Cardinals, also 4-3 in conference, 6-3 overall.

The winners advance to the state championships, which begin Nov. 15-16. The teams will battle in the first round for a shot at the quarterfinals Nov. 22-23.
