Shorecrest to play in 2A district football playoffs despite 0-8 record

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

The football team at Shorecrest High School, which has dropped this fall from the 3A classification to 2A, will get a berth in the quad-district 2A playoffs Nov. 7-8 despite the team’s 0-8 regular-season record (0-6 Western Conference 3A/2A South).

The Northwest District gets eight 2014 quad-district spots. Shorecrest, the only 2A team in Wesco, gets one district spot, while three will come from the five 2A teams in the Cascade Conference and four from the eight Northwest Conference 2A teams.

Winners of each of the 14 quad-district games, games that match teams from the Northwest, Sea-King, West Central and Southwest districts, qualify for the state 2A round of 16 Nov. 14-15.

While Shorecrest gets an automatic district berth, the team will be seeded eighth from the Northwest District because of the Scots’ placing last in the Wesco 3A/2A South Division. Lower seeded teams play higher teams from other districts, with each game played near the home of the higher seeded team.

The path will be harder in 2015, when the district will have only six quad-district berths. Shorecrest then will need to place sixth or higher in the seven-team Wesco 3A South to qualify for the quad-district round, with seeding again depending on place in the division.

Shorecrest’s volleyball and soccer teams need to place 11th or higher in the 13-team Wesco 3A/2A division to qualify for the eight-team district tournament, with four district teams advancing to state this year and three advancing next year.
