Plenty of first-half football and soccer fireworks in this week's Weekly Rewind

Football

Demuzio domination

Something had to give. Coeur d’Alene and Highland, both top-five teams in the statewide media poll, played the field position game for most of the first half, with the Vikings accruing only 92 yards in the opening quarters. Running back Kaleb Demuzio did the rest for the Rams, as Highland ran the ball right into the heart of the CDA offensive line 51 times. Demuzio finished with 301 yards, helping Highland hang on to their 20-0 lead, eventually winning 28-21.

17 and counting

Quarterback Colby Johnson helped the Grizzlies roll past Centennial in a 65-0 rout, throwing three touchdowns. Rocky Mountain hasn’t lost a game since the 2017 postseason, racking up 17 straight wins since losing to Highland in that year’s State Tournament. The rest of Rocky Mountain’s schedule consists of just one team above .500, the 4-1 Eagle Mustangs.

Mountain View Special

One trick play saved Mountain View’s standing in the Southern Idaho Conference. Tied at 28, the Mavs pulled out the Philly Special on fourth-and-six. The call surprised everyone, including Head Coach Judd Benedick, as running back Steven Butler took the snap, pitched to receiver Colby Peugh, who tossed a pinpoint pass to quarterback Jake Farris for a 26-yard gain. The Mavs finished the drive with 6-yard run by Bronx Barrus, overtaking Eagle 35-28 and cementing their second-place slot in the SIC.

Rigby renews rivalry

For five straight years, Ribgy knew nothing but defeat at the hands of Madison. But that half-decade slide came to an end Friday when Rigby exited Friday’s game with a 35-20 historic victory under its belt. Facing a 20-14 halftime deficit, the Trojan defense, led by senior lineman Tanoa Togaiai, held the Bobcats scoreless while the Trojan offense marched to the tune of 205 second half yards.

Capital gives extra effort on extra point

In a one-point victory, Capital demonstrated PAT discipline against Meridian, as kicker Terrell Lawson nailed the game-winner for the Eagles, putting his team up 19-18. Meridian would have won the game had it not been for three failed extra point attempts, two of which coming from the kicking game. Running back Jake Jones finished with 124 yards and a score for Capital.  

Boys Soccer

The Boise Brave continued its undefeated streak, earning its 13th win of the season against Skyview Wednesday. The Brave cemented their seat at the top of the SIC after defeating second-place Centennial 3-2 Monday. Boise faces Eagle, Timberline and Meridian to close out the regular season.

Girls Soccer

Forward Maddy Lasher accounted for more than half of Lake City’s goals in a 9-0 blowout against Lewiston. The senior star scored five times against the Bengals, while teammate Mady Smith added on another two points and two assists. The Timberwolves will face Coeur d’Alene Tuesday.

Kavemen thunder back

Undefeated Kuna took advantage of its three forced turnovers on defense, overcoming a seven-point halftime deficit to beat Thunder Ridge 35-27. Karl Richards flipped the script with a scoop-and-score, while quarterback Sean Austin threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns, both coming in the second half. The Kavemen will face a tough two weeks, with Vallivue and Bishop Kelly up next.

Friday Knight comeback

Down 23-17, Bishop Kelly orchestrated a miraculous comeback against Middleton, winning 24-23 off a Beau Nelson quarterback sneak with less than a minute left on the clock. Middleton’s pass-heavy offense almost got the best of the Knights’ outmatched defense, as the Vikings gained 446 yards. But Middleton’s missed extra point, combined with two turnovers, gave Bishop Kelly just enough room to maneuver in the second half.

Not your average quarterback

What Lan Larrison and the Vallivue offense lacked in the passing game, they made up for with everything else. The Falcons’ leading man scored every which way in Vallivue’s 48-14 win against Columbia — just not with a pass. Larrison found the end zone three times on offense — two with his legs and once as a receiver — and scored off an 84-yard fumble return.

Canyon Ridge surprises in Service Bowl

Canyon Ridge headed into Friday’s Service Bowl with just 13 points and a dream. The winless Thunder Birds had been blown out of every game up to that point in the season and were coming off a 27-0 loss to Minico. But records and stats mean nothing when it comes to rivalry games, as Canyon Ridge shocked Twin Falls 21-14. For four straight years the Bruins had emerged as Service Bowl victors, but with Canyon Ridge capitalizing on five Twin Falls turnovers — kicked off by a River Osen interception in the red zone — the Riverhawks would not be denied a chance to steal a game on the Bruins’ home turf.

Broncos stampede defending champs

Blackfoot put up three second half touchdowns against defending 4A State Champion Hillcrest to win 35-14. The Broncos held the Knights scoreless in the second half, while the offense saw the return of quarterback Craig Young, back from a shoulder injury. Blackfoot preserved its undefeated streak in the High County Conference midway through the season, while Hillcrest dropped to 3-2.

Sweet emotion

The Skyline Grizzlies extended their Emotion Bowl win streak to six with a 33-21 win over rival Idaho Falls. Quarterback Cruz Taylor tossed three touchdowns in the game, helping his team bolt out to an early 19-0 lead. The Grizzly defense came to play in the first quarter, scoring twice on a pick-six and a fumble recovery as the Skyline students rushed the field to paint the goalposts Grizzly Blue, an Emotion Bowl tradition.

Boys Soccer

The Vikings prevailed in a high-scoring affair against Post Falls, as Coeur d’Alene shot out to a 5-0 lead against its Inland Empire rival. Drake Prohaska led his team to the conference victory with a goal and two assists in the revenge match.

Girls Soccer

Pocatello defeated 5A Highland 2-1, despite facing an early 1-0 deficit. Adi Spillett took over the Indian offense with back-to-back goals.

3A Classification

Football

Winning Wolverines

Against Parma, Weiser quarterback Brett Spencer threw for 110 yards and rushed for a score in the Wolverines 39-7 win against Parma. The 124-yard rushing effort of Parma tailback Tony Gonzales couldn’t elevate the Panther offense past a stingy Weiser defense, as the Wolverines remain undefeated on the season, with a game against Fruitland slated for next week.

Homedale hype

The Grizzlies never could establish momentum against undefeated Homedale, as the Trojans cruised to a 56-6 win over their Snake River Valley Conference rivals. Homedale quarterback Daniel Uranga finished with 207 yards and two touchdowns, while Karsen Freelove rushed for 134 yards and three more scores. The Trojans head west to Oregon next week for a meeting with Vale.

Snake River sneaks back

Snake River clawed its way back from a 14-6 halftime deficit to defeat South Fremont 28-14. Offensive weapons Treyton Young and Conner Ranstrum led the comeback effort, as the Panthers bounced back from last week’s 28-26 loss to Gooding. Snake River will have one more nonconference game before conference play begins against Marsh Valley Oct. 11.

Diggers shut out American Falls

Sugar-Salem put up 34 first-half points en route to a 55-0 shut out against American Falls. Much of the offensive production came from Browning Bennion and Hadley Miller, who together totaled six touchdowns, while quarterback Tanner Harris finished the night with two touchdown passes. The Diggers begin conference play against Teton following next week’s bye.

Boys Soccer

Sun Valley Community School remained unbeaten after back-to-back shutouts against Filer and Declo. Senior Cash Dart leads the team this season with 17 goals, and his three goals against Filer helped increase his career total to 68.

Girls Soccer

Marsh Valley let Saturday’s match against Teton slip through its fingers, as the Eagles allowed the Teton offense to nail a goal in the 55th minute for the go-ahead score.

Defense Bearing down

Bear Lake quarterback Owen Teuscher threw three touchdowns Friday, but really only needed two. The Bears shut out the Eagles through three quarters, winning 28-8 off the back of a dominant defensive performance.

Chargers lose power against Melba

No. 4 Cole Valley Christian looked primed for a stellar second half of the season, but Melba would not be denied the chance to upset the unbeaten Chargers. Easton Bunnell ran for 168 yards and six touchdowns for the Mustangs, followed by teammate Scotty Martinez for another 145 yards on the ground.

Dragons score 18 unanswered

Despite scoring 12 points off turnovers, Soda Springs couldn’t hold on against Malad, as the Dragons prevailed 18-12 in overtime. Quarterback Tom Stimpson completed a 10-yard touchdown pass to open OT, and Dillon Evans stifled Soda Springs’ attempt to match with an interception.

Finished in the first

Nampa Christian hit the gas in the first half and never let up. The Trojans scored 52 of their eventual 58 points in the opening two quarters, while the defense held Marsing scoreless in Nampa Christian’s second straight shutout. Running backs Dane Bradshaw and Landon Cheney totaled 253 yards and four touchdowns in the team’s highest scoring game of the season.

Going backwards

Grangeville did a lot more than just hold Priest River to zero points Friday. In the Bulldogs’ 56-0-win, Priest River managed negative-26 yards of offense.

Gonzales goes wild

Wilder stormed past Notus 63-20 in the Wildcats’ fourth win of the season. Receiver Norman Gonzales led the team with three touchdowns receptions. The two teams will meet against Oct. 18.

Parke does it all for Carey

Brigham Parke notched five total touchdowns in Carey’s 76-32 win over Hansen. The all-purpose weapon caught three passes for touchdowns, ran for another and took an interception to the house. Carey scored 70 of its 76 points in the first half to improve to 3-1 on the season.

Oakely takes the rematch

No. 1 Oakley got the better of defending State Champion Valley, shooting out to a 48-0 halftime lead. The Vikings received their first “L” of the season in a 64-14 route, as the Hornets add on to their undefeated record.  

1ADII Classification

Football

Pirates plunder North Gem

Lost Rivers sealed the deal after forcing four turnovers against North Gem. The Pirates defeated the Cowboys 74-16, thanks in large part to Keyan Cummings and Bridger Hansen, who totaled seven touchdowns between them. Cumming scored thrice at running back and once on a fumble return.

Dietrich bullies Bulldogs

Another first half blowout took place Friday, this time at Dietrich. The Blue Devils took advantage of a slow Rockland start, going up 36-0 by halftime. Raygn Robertson led the Dietrich offense with 181 yards on the ground and three touchdowns, as the Blue Devils rolled past Rockland 42-0.

Mustangs gallop to the front

Horseshoe Bend extended its lead in the Long Pin Conference, defeating winless Council 40-6 for the Mustangs’ fourth-straight win. Horseshoe Bend, after a tough start against Wilder in Week 1, hasn’t scored less than 30 since Sept. 13.

Snake River will have only two Conference games and they are ending with 4A Preston. Preston is not in their league.
