TIME: 5:30 p.m.
RECORDS: West Albany 9-3-1, 5-1-1 Mid-Willamette Conference; Wilsonville 11-4-1, 7-0 Northwest Oregon Conference

RECORDS: Corvallis 12-1-2, 6-0-1 Mid-Willamette Conference; Churchill 9-5-1, 7-1 Midwestern League
NOTES: Only 6A South Salem has defeated Corvallis this season.

The Lancers went on to narrowly lose the state final match to Crescent Valley.
(9) Willamette (1) Crescent Valley
TIME: 6 p.m.
RECORDS: Willamette 6-2-7, 4-0-4 Midwestern League; Crescent Valley 12-2-1, 5-1-1 Mid-Willamette Conference

CV topped Willamette on the road 2-0 earlier this season, and the Raiders have not lost since a home defeat against West Albany on Sept. 30. … Willamette endured one of the toughest schedules of any team in the state this fall and finished second in the loaded Midwestern League
(8) Santiam Christian at (1) Catlin Gabel
TIME: 6 p.m.
RECORDS: Santiam Christian 9-2-1, 12-2-1 Mountain Valley Conference; Catlin Gabel 16-0, 9-0 Special District 1

(8) Corvallis at (1) La Salle Prep
TIME: 4:30 p.m.
RECORDS: Corvallis 9-6, 7-1 Mid-Willamette Conference; La Salle Prep 14-0-1, 7-0 Northwest Oregon Conference
NOTES: The Spartans' record doesn’t necessarily reflect the quality of their season.

Last year Corvallis topped La Salle Prep 1-0 in the state title game. … La Salle Prep has outscored opponents 68-6 this year and has not lost since last year’s state final. They secured a huge win earlier this season when they beat Corvallis on the road.
