No. 4 Eastern Tech @Queen Anne's

WHAT: Class 2A state semifinal

WHEN : Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK: All four teams in the 2A semifinals are 12-0, so something will have to give. "It's hard to gauge if this will be a competitive game," Queen Anne's coach Donny Graef said. "We won't know until we play. We have no common opponents." Eastern Tech features a balanced offense, while Queen Anne's is heavy on the run. Both squads have solid defenses.
