Kentwood advanced in the Class 4A high school football playoffs with an overtime win against Woodinville and now will face Graham-Kapowsin, the top-seeded team in the state.

Kentwood, the No. 16 seed, has a 5-4 record and will play undefeated Graham-Kapowsin at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12 at Art Crate Field at Bethel High School in Spanaway.

The Conquerors beat Kentlake 45-28, Kentridge 14-7 and Tahoma 24-21.
