Timberline 23, Eagle 22

After snapping their historic losing streak, the Timberline Wolves squeaked out back-to-back wins against Meridian and Centennial in mid-September. But losses against Borah and Rocky Mountain took the wind from Timberline's sails until the fateful final seconds of Friday night. 

Down 22-7 at halftime, Timberline stormed back, led by quarterback Andy Peters and his two rushing touchdowns. An Eagle safety off a botched punt put the Wolves up by a point, but in the final minutes, the Mustangs marched down to the Timberline red zone. And with time about to expire, it looked as if a Mustang chip shot field goal would all but end it. That’s when the long reach of Sam Rodenbaugh stretched just far enough, knocking the ball off course enough to give Timberline its first win over the Eagle since 2005.

Coeur d’Alene 28, Lewiston 12
Junior quarterback Jack Prka continued his impressive Inland Empire campaign with 31 completions for two touchdowns against Lewiston. Penalties plagued the Vikings in their ugly but valuable league win, with CDA racking up 118 yards in the wrong direction. The Vikings sit tied for the top of the Inland Empire with just two games left in the season, with the finale coming against fellow first-place rival Post Falls Oct. 25.

Post Falls 25, Lake City 20
Another wolf-inspired upset looked to be in the making, but the Post Falls Trojan defense held fast. The Wolves managed 20 points against the dominant Trojan defense, even without Chris Irvin, who was lost to a broken collarbone. But Post Falls quarterback Derek Pearse found daylight on a 7-yard touchdown run in the third quarter for what would be the winning score. The Trojans will be on the hunt for a regular season league title in the final two weeks. If Post Falls can get past Lewiston, the No. 1 seed in the District Tournament will come down to the season finale between the Trojans and Coeur d’Alene.

Mountain View 50, Centennial 7
Maverick Head Coach Judd Benedick earned his 100th career win in a blowout against Centennial. The Mavs forced four turnovers, while quarterback Jake Farris hit three different receivers for touchdowns. Logan Perry and Steven Butler led the ground game with two scores apiece, leading a Maverick offense that put up 30 in the first quarter.

Rocky Mountain 24, Meridian 6
The Grizzly offense gave a second quarter push to go up big against the Warriors. The Grizzlies put up 21 points before halftime, kickstarted by a Jordan Erickson 2-yard run. Trevor Van Gerpen tacked on a scoop-and-score, while quarterback Colby Jackson found Kaden Birch for a 46-yard touchdown. The Grizzlies now own a 19-game winning streak, with a vital game against Eagle on tap for next week. 

Blackfoot 21, Madison 19
The Broncos look to have nearly locked up the High County Conference, but Friday’s Buck Bowl against Madison almost saw Blackfoot upset on its way to a nearly perfect regular season record. The Bobcats led the Broncos 19-7 at halftime, but a second half shutout coupled with touchdowns runs from Teegan Thomas and Craig Young helped Blackfoot rally. Blackfoot will host Idaho Falls next week before taking on Shelley in the season finale. 

Highland 56, Century 33

Ram running back Kaleb Demuzio set the Highland single game rushing record against the Diamondbacks with a 298-yard effort. But it wasn't just Deumizio carrying the rock. The Rams' backfield collectively set another school single game rushing record with 499 yards on the ground, averaging 9.8 yards per carry on 51 rushing attempts. 

Boys Soccer
Upsets ran amok in the Southern Idaho Conference District Tournament. No. 7 Eagle snuck by No. 2 Rocky Mountain 1-0, while No. 6 Timberline shocked No. 3 Skyview 1-1, 5-3 PKs. The Wolves leaned on the legs of Mason Slaughter, Evan Shculte, CJ Brewster and Dyland Bowes to pull the upset. 

While the SIC saw two higher seeds fall, District 5-6 saw its tournament play out as expected with No. 1 Thunder Ridge and No. 2 Madison advancing to the district semifinals scheduled for Tuesday. 
 
Girls Soccer
In the Inland Empire District Tournament, the top two teams posted a pair of shutouts to advance to the championship. No. 1 Lake City defeated No. 4 Lewiston Saturday, while at the same time No. 2 Coeur d’Alene blew past No. 3 Post Falls 5-0. The Inland Empire holds two seeds to the State Tournament this year, meaning both teams will advance, with the winner of Wednesday’s matchup earning the higher seed. 

While the boys Timberline team advanced in the SIC tournament, the No. 3 girls team found itself behind to No. 6 Centennial in the first round. Centennial will face off against No. 2 Rocky Mountain Monday, while No. 1 Boise will take on No. 5 Mountain View.

Kuna 48, Bishop Kelly 6

At this point in the season, almost everyone knew Kuna was good — even great. But it’s hard to imagine too many predicting such a one-sided contest between this year’s surprise conference leader and the perennial powerhouse of Bishop Kelly. Against their longtime rival, the Kavemen completely controlled the flow of the game, putting up 509 yards of offense, eventually resulting in a running clock in the fourth quarter an ending a 12-year losing streak to the Knights.

Quarterback Sean Austin threw three touchdowns and rushed for another, while running backs Ty Cobb and Jonathan Edwards ran for more than 150 yards each. The pair also tacked on two more touchdowns in a dominant showing by the Kuna offensive line and backfield. The Kavemen, still undefeated, earned their long-awaited SIC title, with games against Emmett (3-4, 3-3 SIC) and Caldwell (0-7, 0-7 SIC) scheduled to close out the regular season. 

Middleton 31, Nampa 21
The Vikings’ defense carried much of the load during Middleton’s upset over No. 2 Nampa. The Bulldogs average more than 40 points per game, but a stout Viking front line bottled up the Nampa backfield, as quarterback Donavon Estrada accounted for the only Bulldog touchdowns of the day, passing for two and running for another. For the Vikings, Trenton Johansen racked up 210 yards on the ground behind the bulldozing prowess of offensive tackle and University of Washington commit Gaard Memmelaar. With the win, Middleton leapfrogs Nampa in the SIC standings, with the pair tied with a 5-2, 4-2 SIC record. 

Minico 20, Pocatello 14
The Spartans clung to their narrow lead in the Great Basin East Pod, barely escaping the upset-seeking Pocatello Indians. The two traded blows through the first half, with a single missed extra point keeping Pocatello at bay following a scoreless third quarter. Karter Zampredri and Rylan Chandler each recorded more than 100 yards on the ground, and it was Zampredri who punched it in from 12 yards out in the fourth quarter to put Minico up late. A missed extra point on the final score added extra drama heading into Pocatello’s final drive, but quarterback Jadyn Downs threw a misguided pass into the waiting arms of Minico defensive back Zayne Maughan. 

Moscow 32, Sandpoint 17
The Moscow Bears looked more like the Chicago Bears Friday night against Sandpoint, with a strong defense and a ground-and-pound offensive approach elevating Moscow past the 4-3 Bulldogs. Bear quarterback Chad Redinger led his team to a 21-0 halftime lead, hitting Ben Postell for the game’s first score, then running it himself to close out the first quarter. Now both sitting at 4-3, Moscow holds the tiebreaker over Sandpoint with just one game left in the season. The Bulldogs will get a crack at the Lakeland Hawks first next week, while the Bears will close out their season against Lakeland following a bye.

Boys Soccer

The Caldwell Cougars flew past Columbia with ease in the SIC’s opening round of the district tournament. Damian Arguello’s hat trick propelled the top-seeded Cougars into the semifinals, where they will face rival No. 4 Vallivue Thursday.

In the Great Basin Conference, No. 1 Century was at the receiving end of a massive upset by No. 5 Canyon Ridge. The Diamondbacks found themselves clinging on to penalty kicks to survive late, but Canyon Ridge prevailed by a single PK 6-5. No. 3 Jerome, after blanking Twin Falls 2-0, upset No. 2 Wood River in the semifinals 2-1. The two will play for the A seed at State, while Century, Preston, Wood River and Twin Falls will fight for a chance to reach a State play-in game. 

Girls Soccer

In the SIC’s highest scoring affair of the week, Lexi Haws and Amina Bah joined forces for half of No. 2 Kuna’s 12 goals in the Kavemen’s shutout against No. 7 Ridgevue. At the top of the bracket, Boise put on a scoring clinic of its own, blanking Bishop Kelly 8-0 to advance. No. 3 Vallivue sits as the highest seed in the losers’ bracket following the Falcons’ 6-3 upset loss against Columbia. 

No. 1 Twin Falls earned a seat in the State Tournament following a 10-0 effort against Mountain Home and a 4-1 victory over Wood River. The Bruins will play No. 2 Pocatello for the District Championship.

Weiser 49, Payette 0

The Wolverine defense held the Pirates to 58 yards of offense in their second shutout of the year. With just 18 yards allowed through the air, Weiser’s defense and explosive backfield led by Brett Spencer and Layten Tolman will be primed for the biggest conference matchup of the year in the Snake River Valley next week. 

Homedale 58, Parma 0
Weiser’s conference-deciding game will come against the 7-1 Homedale Trojans, who posted a shutout of their own against Parma Friday. Jake Collett finished the game with 77 yards on the ground for two touchdowns along with 84 yards receiving and another score. But the Trojans didn’t limit his talents to just offense, as Collett cut through Parma’s defensive line for eight tackles, including a sack. 

Sugar-Salem 42, Teton 0
In the thick of conference competition, Sugar-Salem proved why it deserves top billing in the Mountain Rivers Conference. No Idaho football team has scored on the Diggers in 2019, as Sugar-Salem has posted three consecutive shutouts against Marsh Valley, American Falls and now Teton. Quarterback Tanner Harris, who threw for two touchdowns in Friday’s matchup, has helped lead an offense that has scored 40 or more points in every one of the Diggers’ five wins.

Timerblake 52, Bonners Feery 13
The Timberlake Tigers have the Intermountain League on lock following a dominant showing against Bonners Ferry. Quarterback Joey Follini tossed five touchdowns in the window of just 191 yards. Josh Yanez served as Follini’s favorite target, hauling in five balls for 109 yards and two of those scores. 

Gooding 63, Filer 0
Four teams laid goose eggs in 3A play Friday, with Gooding earning the largest margin of victory in the division over the weekend. Quarterback Shane Jennings missed just eight of his 29 passes for 340 yards and three touchdowns while generating another 63 yards with his legs. Jonathan Carpenter held down the run game with 101 yards on just nine carries with two touchdowns, while Skyler Cheney picked up another 106 on five touches for an efficient Senator showing. 

Boys Soccer

No. 1 Sun Valley Community School earned a spot in the District 4 semifinals with ease, defeating No. 8 Declo 9-1. The Cutthroats will face No. 4 Wendell Tuesday. Gooding and Bliss will battle it out in the other district semifinal, with both teams winning in the first round 3-1. 

No. 2 Snake River barely survived an upset by No. 3 Marsh Valley, winning 2-2 5-4 PKs after a grueling regulation and overtime. But the exhausting match took its toll, as Snake River stumbled against No. 1 American Falls in the District Championship 9-2. The Panthers will be on the hunt for redemption Tuesday, with No. 4 Aberdeen being all that stands in the way of Snake River’s ticket to a State play-in-game. 

Girls Soccer

The Cutthroat girls piled on the points in the opening round of the District 4 Tournament, defeating No. 8 Bliss 6-0. Sun Valley Community School will play No. 4 Gooding Monday, while No. 3 Wendell and No. 2 Kimberly will square off for a spot in the championship. 

In District 5, No. 1 Marsh Valley never had to worry about a deficit, as the Eagles posted back-to-back shutouts against Malad and No. 2 American Falls for a spot in the State Tournament. Both of the Eagles’ victims will have a second chance, with the second-place match set for Tuesday, with spot in a State play-in-match on the line.

North Fremont 54, West Jefferson 13

The Huskies were back in action following their bye and did not miss a step on their way to an undefeated season. Riggen Cordingley led the North Fremont offense with 183 yards on the ground, including the game’s opening touchdown. Deshon Wheeler notched another 143 yards, while Luke Hill followed up with 65 yards from scrimmage in a game that saw the Huskies pass just twice.

Grangeville 18, St. Maries 12
St. Maries looked as if it could sneak into the lead of the Central Idaho League, but a tight contest against Grangville sunk any hopes for the Lumberjacks. The Bulldogs managed to shut out the Lumberjacks in the second half, and a 3-yard touchdown run by quarterback Tesher Harris helped put Grangeville over the top in the fourth quarter. 

Aberdeen 68, Marsing 0
The Aberdeen Tigers righted the ship after four straight losses, shutting out Marsing being on the receiving end of two straight shutouts. The Tigers earned their first win since the season opener, in which they put forth a powerful showing, defeating American Falls 48-14. But ever since, Aberdeen had mustered just 14 points all season.

Lost Rivers 56, Grace 6

The Pirate defense helped keep hopes of an undefeated season alive, as Lost Rivers forced five turnovers against the Grace Grizzlies. Keyan Cummins recorded 11 tackles and a pick, while Jacoda Whitworth followed up with another 10 tackles. 

Prairie 77, Lapwai 14
Quarterback Cole Schlader need only five completions to pass the 100-yard mark Friday, with more than half of his passes ending up in the end zone. Owen Anderson and Cole Martin helped suck the defense in with a combined 178 yards rushing and six touchdowns, giving Schlader chances to go deep over the top for another three touchdowns, one of which finding its way to Martin from 32 yards out. 

Potlatch 62, Clearwater Valley 0
Unranked Potlatch pulled an upset over No. 4 Clearwater Valley, accumulating 450 yards of offense. Justin Nicholson led the Loggers with 163 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Potlatch now sits comfortably in second place of the Whitepine League with wins over both Clearwater Valley and Kamiah under its belt.

Lighthouse Christian 42, Dietrich 26

No. 1 Lighthouse Christian remains just one of two undefeated teams in 1ADII play. The Lions added on to their win total against Sawtooth Conference rival Dietrich. The Lions put forth 530 yards of offense, with quarterback Collin Holloway completing 21 passes for five touchdowns and 363 yards. Clay Silva caught eight passes for 179 yards and three touchdowns, all from 20 or more yards out. 

Horseshoe Bend 66, Salmon River 30
As per usual, Austin Fry proved nearly unstoppable for the Mustang offense, scoring touchdowns and racking up 355 yards on 10 carries against Salmon River. Meanwhile, Ethan Smith proved to be an asset on both sides of the ball, rushing for 108 yards on offense while leading the Horseshoe Bend defense with 16 tackles on the night. 

Kendrick 76, Deary 14
The 5-1 Tigers will at least be partial White Pine regular season champions, regardless of how the rest of the season plays out. Kendrick earned its fifth win of the season and second conference victory. The Tigers will close out conference play Friday against Timberline (Weippe) before finishing the season with a matchup against Genesee.
