MATCHUP WE’RE MOST INTRIGUED BY

Fife vs. Liberty of Issaquah: The Trojans are the higher seed, and have the biggest win (state-tournament participant W.F. West) of the season between the two teams. But Liberty comes from a tougher league (3A/2A KingCo), and has the best scorer in this matchup in guard Devynn Warns, the KingCo player of the year. Especially in this win-or-go-home showdown, expect both clubs to play a fast-paced, high-intensity style.
