ORIGINAL

Curtis' playoff hopes begin tonight, on the road against Bothell.

The Vikings - who are coming off a 35-6 loss to Federal Way in their final regular-season game last week - must travel north to face the winner of the the Kingco 4A Crest division in a play-in game.

It won't be an easy task. As Patch blogger PrepSportsBuzz pointed out, two of Bothell's four losses this season were to No. 1-ranked Skyline. Another was to top-ranked Bellevue in the 3A division. Bothell's offense averaged 27.1 points per game and the Cougar defense allowed 20.4 points per game.

But the Vikings are no gridiron pushovers either, as their defense, which was stout all season, will be looking for redemption after last week's lost. Curtis will also be looking to use its offensive line to free running back EJ Deveaux.

For those who are headed north, the game starts 7 p.m., at Pop Keeney Stadium, 18315 Bothell Way NE Bothell.

As always, go Viks!

While a successful conclusion always makes the journey more satisfying, but nothing will detract from the experience. I am proud of the VIK's and they represent the best of our community. I enjoy high school level sports because they are pure excitement with no ability to forecast the outcome, except that the experience each student athlete receives will shape each of their lives in a positive manner. What are the ScoreCzar and your odds on the success of these student athletes success in becoming productive citizens having had the experience of high school sports? Howard

I totally agree Howard. Anyone who goes through an athletic program learns things that will stay with them for life. I still use motivational techniques used on me by Bert Wells, 35 years ago. (It didn't work on me then though...ha ha)

By the way, I speak from athletic experience gained at the college level, so I really believe in any athletics program below the professional level. Regardless, Go Vikings because it is a win-win situation for everyone. Howard
