The Bothell High School football team advanced to the second round of state and will play Bellermine Prep at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Mount Tohoma High School Stadium in Tacoma.

The last time Bothell traveled to Tacoma to take on the Lions they were stunned during the 2010 playoff 28-21, giving up four unanswered touchdowns. Bothell came into that game ranked fifth in the state. But this time the Cougars will be looking for payback.

Bellermine Prep comes into the game with a 9-1 record this season including their playoff win last week against against Edmonds-Woodway 45-6. Prep's only loss this season came against Lakes High School on Oct. 7 in a shootout, 42-38. The Lions come into the second round of state with an eight-game win streak.

Bothell has an overall record of 6-4 including their first round playoff win against Curtis last weekend, 31-3.

Bellarmine Prep quarterback Sefo Liufau and wide receiver Garrett McKay power the 4A Narrows-league team, as they led their league in both passing and receiving yards.

Liufau has thrown for 1,660 yards and McKay has caught 47 passes for 731 yards. But tailback Lou Millie found his stride against Edmonds-Woodway, rushing for 208 yards on 17 carries last weekend.

There are no pre-sale tickets for the game. Tickets at the gate are $8 for adults and $6 for students with ASB card and seniors over 65.

Mount Tahoma High School is located at 4634 South 74th Street in Tacoma.
