San Francisco prep football games of the week

Friday

Balboa at Washington, 2 p.m.
For Balboa (4-5, 3-3) to gain entrance to the AAA playoffs, they will need to knock off undefeated Washington (7-2, 6-0), then receive help with Lincoln and Lowell losses.

Lincoln at Burton, 2 p.m.
Lincoln (3-6, 3-3) only needs to knock off Burton (1-6, 1-5) to secure a playoff spot and will look to ride the running back tandem of Demetrius Williams and Jay’von Fields.

Marshall at Galileo, 2 p.m.
The Lions (3-6, 1-5) and the Phoenix (2-7, 1-5) won’t be competing for a playoff spot, but will look to end their seasons on a high note.

Sacred Heart Cathedral vs. Mitty, 7 p.m.
Multiple sources have confirmed Sacred Heart (5-4, 2-4) is already in the Central Coast Section playoffs, but a win over the Monarchs (5-3-1, 3-2-1) could give the Irish a first-round home game.

Saturday

St. Ignatius vs. Bellarmine, 1 p.m.
The Wildcats (3-5-1, 1-4-1) also sealed a CCS berth by beating Riordan last week, but would put the entire region on notice if they could knock off the first-place Bells (8-1, 6-0).

St. Francis at Riordan, 1 p.m.
The Crusaders (1-8, 0-6) will try to finish off their WCAL season with their first league win, but could be without starting quarterback Zach Masoli, who was injured in Riordan’s loss to St. Ignatius last week.
