FOOTBALL (3-3, 3-4)
Friday, Moses Lake (3-3, 3-4) HOMECOMING.
The 2012 foe is the same as the first Homecoming opponent, Moses Lake. Wenatchee won that initial game 26-0 on October 26, 1951; in fact that was the first game ever with Moses Lake. The Panthers have played the Chiefs five times in this special game, with the host winning four times. The most recent was a 38-10 WHS win in 2007.

In the first meeting this fall Moses Lake topped Wenatchee 32-29 to break a 5-game Panther win streak in the series. Overall though the Purple and Gold hold a commanding lead with 48 wins in 58 games.

Homecoming stuff:
In 60 games WHS is 41-19.

GIRLS SOCCER (2-4, 2-8)
Tuesday, Moses Lake (5-2) home.
Ah…home sweet home. This is the Panthers first home match in five weeks. Thanks to smoke the team has been on the road for seven consecutive games, and now complete the season with four straight on their own field. Moses Lake provides the opposition, a team that has defeated Wenatchee four straight times, including a 2-0 win at MLHS last month. The series started in 1987, and despite their recent problems, the Purple and Gold hold a substantial lead at 30-7. On their home turf Wenatchee leads 17-2.

Thursday, Eisenhower (0-5) home.
This is a game that was originally scheduled September 11, three days after the fires started. Speaking of fire, neither the Panthers nor Cadets have been ablaze this season, although the former definitely has had a spark ignite recently. After losing seven straight and being shutout in each, WHS scored in three in a row and has won two of the three. Last week Wenatchee blanked Eisenhower in Yakima 1-0. The victory was the third straight over EHS and the third consecutive time they’ve held the Cadets with nary a goal. The win also evened the all-time series between the two schools a 19-19-1. At home Wenatchee is 9-10 vs. Ike.

League Standings: Davis 6-0, Eastmont 5-1, Moses Lake 5-2, Wenatchee 2-4, Sunnyside 0-5, Eisenhower 0-6

VOLLEYBALL (6-1, 14-3)
Tuesday, Moses Lake (5-1) away.
After a busy week with nine matches (six in their invitational tourney Saturday) it gets a tad less hectic this week. The Panthers travel to Moses Lake Tuesday and that’s it. Currently the Panthers are in first place and Moses Lake is second. WHS has three matches remaining and if they win them all they will be league champions. Wenatchee has faced the Chiefs 50 times and the Purple and Gold has won 47, including the last eight in a row, and the last four of those have been 3-game sweeps.

League Standings: Wenatchee 6-1, Moses Lake 6-1, Eisenhower 4-2, Sunnyside 1-4, Eastmont 1-5, Davis 1-5
