Notes: Ellsworth leads a potent rushing attack for the Eagles. He started on the 2009 team that reached the state title game, before losing to Lynden. ... Duke, Derek Lane and Stavnes all have the ability to run the ball as well. Stavnes can pass, but has been inconsistent at times this season. ... West Valley's kicking game has missed just one extra point this season. The Eagles' two losses this season were at Class 1A No. 1 Cashmere and at home to Deer Park. ... Anderson went over 1,000 yards for the third consecutive season last week and has scored 19 touchdowns on the ground. ... Fassler has really taken to the quarterback role and has thrown for a CWAC-leading 2,058 yards with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions. ... Between Raap, Baker, Josh Lopez and Sterling Clark, the Prosser air-attack is difficult to slow and the Eagles will have their hands full. ... Prosser hasn't lost since the season opener to Kamiakin, the No. 4-ranked Class 3A team.
