The Sumner Spartans are one of just four teams still in the hunt for the Class 4A state football championship.

Sumner stays close to home for its semifinal contest, slated for 5 p.m. Saturday at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup. The opponent will be Woodinville High and the winner will advance to the 4A title game, set for 7:30 p.m. Dec. 2 in the Tacoma Dome.

Sumner advanced to the semifinal round Nov. 18 with a 56-14 victory over the Monroe Bears. It was the Spartans’ second offensive outburst in the playoffs, as Sumner had opened the 16-team tournament with a 42-14 win over Union.

The Spartans broke things open in the third quarter against Monroe, scoring 21 unanswered points after leading 21-14 at halftime. A pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns brought the final, lopsided margin.
