Here is a look at Friday’s prep football action. All games begin at 7 p.m.
West Albany at West Salem
Records: West Albany 4-1, 3-1 6A Greater Valley Conference; West Salem 4-1, 4-0 GVC
West Albany bounced back from its first GVC loss with a 46-14 home thrashing of McKay last week.
Quarterback Nick Fleetwood, who passed for 264 yards and three touchdowns in the win, left the game with a knee injury. Fleetwood is day-to-day and questionable to play at West Salem, coach Brian Mehl said Thursday.
The Titans have outscored conference foes 174-41 this season.
Willamette at Lebanon
Records: Willamette 2-3, 1-2 6A Southwest Conference; Lebanon 3-2, 1-2 5A Mid-Willamette Conference
Following a pair of one-point home losses to Crescent Valley (25-24) and Silverton (31-30), the Warriors responded with a 50-7 rout of Corvallis last Friday.
The defending MWC and 5A state champions rolled up nearly 500 yards on the ground.
Lebanon blasted the Wolverines 63-7 a season ago in Eugene.
South Albany at Dallas
Records: South Albany 2-3, 2-0 MWC; Dallas 2-3, 0-2 MWC
The Rebels and Crescent Valley (5-0, 3-0) are the only teams with a perfect MWC record.
Three turnovers hurt South Albany in last week’s 42-20 nonconference loss to Glencoe. The Rebels outgained the Crimson Tide 352-305 but were undone by two special teams scores and an interception returned for a touchdown.
Dallas, which opened the season with consecutive shutouts, enters on a three-game losing streak.
Junction City at Sweet Home
Records: Junction City 2-3, 2-0 4A Sky-Em League; Sweet Home 4-1, 1-1 Sky-Em
Cottage Grove knocked Sweet Home back to reality last Friday, handing the visiting Huskies a 53-12 defeat. The Lions sit atop the OSAA 4A power rankings.

Top-ranked SC dropped a 37-19 WVL decision at Dayton last week for its first loss of the season. The Pirates (4-1, 2-0) are seventh in the 3A power rankings.
Cascade Christian’s lone blemish was a 42-20 defeat at 4A Mazama in Week 3.
