The Vikings, Raiders and Honkers will all be on the road facing a set of challenging tough opponents. The Lions will play the Adrian Antelopes at home. But no matter where the teams play, they all will be playing for a chance to move one step closer to the state championship.

In the 4A, across the bracket, the best teams of the regular season are facing off in the Quarterfinals.

The fifth seed Mazama Vikings will travel to Coos Bay to face the fourth seed Marshfield Pirates. Both teams had a similar regular season schedule and match up evenly. The Pirates ended the regular season with a record of 8-1. The Vikings completed their regular season 7-1. Both teams faced Henley, Klamath Union and Marist in the regular season and both the Vikings and Pirates were victorious in each of those match-ups.
