Crescent Valley High's Ryan Terwilliger closes in on Corvallis quarterback Seamus Hennessy. The Spartans travel to Central Friday night while the Raiders host South Albany. 

Here is a look at Friday’s prep football action. All games begin at 7 p.m. unless listed.   

Corvallis at Central (Independence)

Records: Corvallis 4-4, 2-3 5A Mid-Willamette Conference; Central 4-4, 2-3 MWC

Both teams are playing with confidence as the regular season comes to a close.

Corvallis has won three consecutive games, including a 35-25 home victory over 6A Glencoe last week. The Spartans also own recent wins over Dallas (40-26) and Silverton (40-37).

Central is coming off a 41-35 victory at Silverton that kept its playoff hopes alive.

If Lebanon falls at Dallas on Friday night, the Corvallis/Central winner advances to the 5A state round of 16.

South Albany at Crescent Valley

Records: South Albany 4-4, 4-1 MWC; Crescent Valley 8-0, 5-0 MWC

Following a 28-21 home loss to Silverton, South Albany bounced back last Friday with a stunning 28-24 victory over visiting Lebanon.

The Rebels trailed 24-13 in the final minutes before rattling off two late touchdowns to complete the comeback. South also overcame a double-digit deficit in a 22-18 win at Dallas on Oct. 6.

Crescent Valley, which clinches the outright MWC title with a win, has scored at least 31 points in seven games this year. South’s 28-point performance against Dallas is its highest offensive output of the season.

Friday’s winner clinches the MWC’s No. 1 seed.

Santiam Christian at Washougal (Washington)

Records: Santiam Christian 6-2, 4-1 3A West Valley League; Washougal 6-2, 4-2 2A Greater St. Helens League

Santiam Christian wrapped up second place in the West Valley League last week with a 48-27 rout of Amity.

It was the second straight victory for the Eagles, who took down Taft 54-7 in their previous game. SC will host a 3A state round of 16 game next Friday or Saturday.

Washougal, a Vancouver, Washington suburb, is averaging 24.6 points per game on offense while surrendering just 14.8.

Monroe at Stanfield

Records: Monroe 6-1, 4-0 2A Mountain View Conference; Stanfield 2-4, 2-1 2A Columbia Basin Conference

Time: 6 p.m.

Mountain View Conference-champion Monroe has won five straight games since a 42-12 loss at St. Paul on Sept. 8.

The Dragons will be at home next week to open the 2A state playoffs.

Stanfield, the state runner-up in 2016, has scored just 17.8 points per game this season.
