West Seattle scored a 31-21 win over Sammamish in its finale Friday and Highline won, 48-16, in a road game against Lindbergh on Thursday.
Evergreen led Kingston, 16-10, at halftime in a Friday non-league game, only to wind up on the short end of a 26-16 final.
Mount Rainier's season concluded with a 42-0 loss at Bellarmine in Tacoma on Thursday.
