High school football kicks off this week, but only one local school will play at home as Olympic hosts Wilson at 7:15 p.m. Sept. 4 at Silverdale Stadium.

Central Kitsap will open its season for a second consecutive year against rival South Kitsap. Both Olympic and Central will break in new artificial turf fields as both Silverdale Stadium and Kitsap Bank Stadium had new surfaces installed during the summer.

Last year, the Wolves defeated Central 21-3. That 18-point setback was the Cougars’ largest margin of defeat in the series since a 42-0 loss in 2006. While South leads the series 45-27-4, most of those wins came early in the series. Each team has won 24 times in the rivalry since 1949 along with a tie in ’68.

Other sports, including girls soccer and volleyball, begin play next week.
