Saturday, 10/7 at 1:00 p.m. Friday Harbor (3-1) vs. Forks (4-1) at Sequim

* The history with Forks is brief, just a couple games.  In 2005 the Spartans came to town and FH won 35-0.  Last fall Friday Harbor was the home team in a game at Anacortes and Forks won 26-7.  The Spartans are the home team this week as the pair meet in Sequim…it is 161 miles to Forks and 89 to Sequim.

* So far this season the Spartans defeated Sequim 21-14, Neah Bay 49-16, Morton-White Pass 40-0 and Ilwaco 41-0, and last Friday lost to Raymond 40-21.

There have been 13 coaches in the Wolverines’ half-century of the gridiron sport.
