* Bellevue beat Juanita, 42-0, on Friday. Juanita, 0-1 in league and 0-4 overall, will play at Lake Washington at 7 p.m. this Friday.

During a preseason Reporter interview, Juanita players were already fired up about the LW rivalry game. The time is now.

Juanita head coach Lele Te’o said it’s always a fun game for the community, plus the Rebel and Kang players know each other well and have faced off on the field for many years.

He added that there’s “lots of mutual respect between our coaching staffs.” Te’o and LW head coach Andy Arena are good friends and coached together from 2005-2007 at Evergreen High in White Center and from 2008-2013 at Juanita.

“Great coach and person,” Te’o said about Arena.

In order to succeed against LW and the rest of the teams on its schedule, Juanita will need to focus on its effort and physicality, Te’o said.

“There will be lots of emotion. The trick for us will have to be to focus on the important things and play fast,” he said.
