High-scoring Hood River Valley opens the first round of the Class 5A state football playoffs Friday at home against South Albany.

The 8-1 Eagles, the No. 2 team from Special District 1, will be playing a home state playoff game for the first time since the 2003 season. HRV last made the playoffs in 2015, when the Eagles lost 49-7 to top-ranked Liberty High. That ended a long playoff drought, which started after the 2004 season, when the Eagles lost at Beaverton by a basketball-like score of 67-46. Ironically, Hood River leads all 5A teams this season in scoring average at 40.8 points a game.

“It’s exciting to play in front of our home crowd,” HRV Coach Caleb Sperry said, adding that South Albany will be a formidable opponent. “They are playoff football team so it’s going to be a challenging week. They are tough and physical and run a downhill running game.”
