    SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - The three local high school football teams vying for state championships this weekend left early Friday morning bound for the Tacoma Dome. Members and supporters of the West Valley Eagles team left Spokane Valley before the sun came up, gathering at the school around 5:30 in the morning. After a quick rally in the school's gym, players ran out the doors under tunnels of arms and into their seats.>>

SPOKANE – Three area high school football teams will play for state championship titles this weekend.  KHQ/SWX will be at the games in Tacoma and will have live reports on KHQ Local News Saturday, as well as KHQ Local News at 5, 6 and 11. 

Ferris High School (10-3) will play Skyline High School (11-2) out of Sammamish for the 4-A title.  The Skyline Spartans are looking for their third straight state championship.  Skyline is ranked first in the state and 35th in the nation, according to USA Today.  However, the Ferris Saxons are eager to play for the title after losing in the state semi-finals for the last two years. 

West Valley is facing a similar situation in the state 2-A finals as Ferris in the 4-A.  The Lynden Lions are looking for their second straight 2-A championship.  Looking just at the numbers, West Valley has the edge.  The team is still undefeated, while Lynden has 12 wins and one loss.  West Valley has not made it to the state championships since 1987. 

Colfax will play Adna for the state 2-B title.  The Bulldogs advanced past DeSales last week, winning 19-0 for a shot at the championship.  Adna, which is near Chehalis, knocked off Napavine to make it to the championship game. 

All three games will be at the Tacoma Dome on Saturday.  West Valley v. Lynden is set for 10 a.m., Colfax v. Adna starts at 4 p.m. and Ferris v. Skyline is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.  Look for live reports on KHQ and swxrightnow.com.
