Falcon football will play 10th game

Despite facing a 1-6 Cascade Conference record, South Whidbey football will play a 10th game this season.

The game won’t be for playoffs, but will extend the Falcons’ season. South Whidbey only has one conference victory, back on Sept. 14 against Granite Falls. Since then, the Falcons lost five in a row leading to Friday’s game against last-place Cedarcrest, which has yet to beat a Cascade Conference school.

South Whidbey Athletic Director Scott Mauk said the Falcons will likely play Vashon High School on Nov. 2. Whether the contest will be a home or road game was not determined.

The outcomes of some of Friday’s football games between District 1 and 3 teams will decide if the Falcons travel.
