Football


Borah 44, Mountain View 37

The Borah Lions went from an unpredictable group of hotshots to a serious Southern Idaho Conference contender in just a matter of weeks. Now, with one game left in the regular season, the Lions hold the second-place spot in the SIC after upsetting No. 2 Mountain View. The ever-dependable Maverick offense committed four turnovers, as Borah quarterback Austin Bolt electrified the Mavericks’ home turf with three passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns. With a win over Centennial next week, the Lions can lock up the No. 2 seed in the state tournament, securing a first-round bye. 

Rocky Mountain 19, Eagle 13 OT
It was the ugliest game of the Rocky Mountain Grizzlies’ season. Quarterback Colby Jackson threw three interceptions against the Eagle Mustangs. But with their backs against the wall and a historic undefeated streak on the line, Rocky Mountain survived an overtime thriller to secure their second consecutive SIC title. Jackson redeemed his turnover riddled performance with a fourth-down trick play pass to left tackle Gerrit Tamminga, who rumbled his way 14 yards for a touchdown. Tiloi Nawahine then blocked Eagle’s overtime field goal attempt, handing the Mustangs their second straight loss due to a blocked kick. 

Madison 18, Highland 15
For the first time since 2012, the Highland Rams suffered a defeat in their own district. The Madison Bobcats ended the Rams’ seven-year District 5-6 domination thanks to a gutsy two-touchdown performance by Ryan Winfree. The Bobcat defense iced the game by picking off Ram quarterback Easton Durham, ending Highland’s reign over the 5-6 and opening the door for Rigby to take the lead with just one game left in the regular season. 

Post Falls 41, Lewiston 40
The Bengals’ chance at a postseason berth was slim entering Friday’s game against the Post Fall Trojans. But a three-interception showing by Lewiston made those chances even slimmer, as the 1-point loss eliminates the Bengals’ from a guaranteed bid to state. Post Falls, led by quarterback Derek Pearse and receiver Thomas Hauser’s four touchdown night, now sit tied with Coeur d’Alene heading into the season finale. The two will face off next Friday for the Inland Empire crown, but both teams are guaranteed a spot in the postseason. 

Timberline 47, Skyview 14
After ending their historic losing streak earlier this season, the Timberline Wolves are rolling in the second half of the season after back-to-back wins against Eagle and Skyview. With West Idaho earning five guaranteed spots in the state tournament, the Wolves, currently sixth in the SIC, could have a shot at the postseason. Against Skyview, quarterback Andy Peters threw four touchdowns and rushed for two more, while Taylor Marcum ended the successful night for the Wolves with a 52-yard scamper and score. For the first time since 2017, the Wolves have won in back-to-back weekends twice in a season.  

Boys Soccer

Somehow, someway, the 5A Boys Soccer State Tournament will commence without the Boise Brave. After an undefeated regular season, Boise looked to be unstoppable heading into the district tournament. But the Brave dropped three of their last four postseason matches, losing to Eagle, Skyview and finally Madison in the state tournament play-in game. The Brave came excruciatingly close to the tournament, with their loss to Skyview being the only to occur in regulation. Madison defeated the regular season SIC champion 4-3 in overtime Saturday. 

Girls Soccer

Mountain View earned a berth to state via play-in game against Highland. The Rams lost out on a chance to reach the tournament after defeating Rigby 5-0 for second place in the District 5-6. But the Trojans fell short against the Mavericks after an early 2-0 deficit in the first half. Mountain View, meanwhile, will face Lake City Thursday at Meridian High School in the first round.

Blackfoot 25, Idaho Falls 14

The Blackfoot Broncos earned the District 6 title after coming back from a 2-point fourth quarter deficit. Fullback Dragen Robinson stepped in for an injured Teegan Thomas and led the Blackfoot rushing attack with 66 yards and a third quarter touchdown. A pair of Idaho Falls extra points put the Tigers up heading into the final quarter, but the Bronco defense held strong, keeping the Tigers out of scoring range for the entire fourth quarter thanks to two interceptions, while Blackfoot found the end zone twice.  

Vallivue 34, Nampa 24
Just when the Vallivue Falcons looked to be on the verge of defeat, the Brown and Gold rallied from a 3-point halftime deficit to defeat the Nampa Bulldogs and tie Middleton for third place in the SIC. Quarterback Lan Larison continued putting up impressive numbers on the ground with three touchdowns and 219 yards. The loss drops Nampa to fifth place in the conference, but the Bulldogs will still see the postseason with five spots reserved for the SIC at state. 

Century 49, Minico 23
The Diamondbacks are a win away from a conference championship following a dominant showing against the Minico Spartans. Quarterback Nathan Manning tossed five touchdowns while receiver Drew Gunter hauled in three of the scores. Receiver Jovan Sowell tacked on another 154 yards, including an 85-yard touchdown reception. The Diamondbacks now hold the tiebreaker over the Spartans in the Great Basin East Pod, with both teams sitting at 3-1 in the conference. 

Sandpoint 48, Lakeland 20
In the small three-team Inland Empire League, every game counts. And Lakeland, who lost out on a chance to go undefeated in league play against Sandpoint, will have to put it all on the line for a postseason berth next week against Moscow. Against the Hawks, Sandpoint running back Gerrit Cox ran for three touchdowns and 138 yards. Sandpoint has a good shot at being one of the two Inland Empire teams to reach state, with Moscow and Lakeland set to face off next week. Moscow, 4-3 on the year, defeated Sandpoint earlier in the season and can go undefeated in League play with a win over the Hawks. 

Pocatello 42, Preston 26
The Pocatello Indians could snap a seven-game postseason drought with a win next Friday following a defensive domination over Preston. Pokey forced four turnovers in a must-win conference matchup, while quarterback Jadyn Downs led the Pocatello offense to capitalize on every turnover gifted to them. If Pocatello defeats Burley next Friday, Pocatello would leapfrog Preston in the conference standings, with the Indians now just one conference game behind their conference rivals. 

Boys Soccer
A handful of thrillers helped shape the boys soccer state tournament. Vallivue prevailed in the SIC losers’ bracket, upsetting No. 2 Ridgevue to reach the state play-in game. But No. 6 Twin Falls wasn’t about to let their miraculous postseason journey come to an end. The Bruins survived No. 2 Wood River to finish third in the district tournament after winning 10-9 PKs. The Bruins again scraped by in penalty kicks against the Falcons 4-3 after a 1-1 regulation, reaching the state tournament. Twin Falls will face Idaho Falls in the tournament's first match Friday. 

Girls Soccer
The Middleton Vikings defeated Preston 3-1 in the state play-in match after surviving one-point matches against Caldwell and Columbia in the SIC losers’ bracket. The Indians fell to No. 2 Pocatello 2-0 to exit the winners’ bracket but went on to defeat Century and Wood River for a shot at state. The Vikings, meanwhile, will face Skyline Thursday.

Gooding 46, Caldwell 6

Gooding quarterback Shane Jennings made history against the Senators’ 4A opponent, breaking the school record for career yards, surpassing the 10,000 mark. Jennings finished the game with 436 yards and six touchdowns as the Senators look to next week’s conference-deciding game against Kimberly. 

Snake River 28, American Falls 14
The Snake River Panthers secured a conference title against American Falls, led by the high octane running of Treyton Young. His 202 yards helped the Panthers tie American Falls 14-14 at halftime, before Snake River held the Beavers scoreless in the second half. 

Timberlake 55, Priest River 0
With a win over Priest River, Timberlake punched its ticket to the state tournament, with a first-round bye on the line next Friday. Louis Powell ran for two touchdowns, each from further than 40 yards out, despite only getting three carries. Jeremy McLemore notched six carries with two touchdowns and 95 yards. Next week, Timberlake takes on Kellogg, which also possesses an undefeated conference record, with the loser regulated to a state play-in game and the victor earning a first-round bye.

Sugar-Salem 41, South Fremont 7
The Mountain Rivers conference belongs to Sugar-Salem as the Diggers routed their conference rival to earn a first-round bye at state. The Diggers shot out to a 21-0 halftime lead thanks to two Sam Parkinson touchdowns, and Sugar-Salem never looked back. Browning Bennion scored another two touchdowns, along with Crew Clark in the second half. South Fremont will battle it out next week against Teton for a chance at a state play-in game. 

Homedale 71, Payette 0
The Payette offense couldn’t catch a break against the brick wall defense of the Homedale Trojans, as the Pirates managed just 24 total yards while failing to convert a single third down. Daniel Uranga threw four touchdowns passes for Homedale, finding receiver Jake Collett for two scores. Weiser will come off its bye week to face the Trojans next Friday for the Snake River Conference title.

Boys Soccer

In their inaugural season, the CDA Charter Panthers looked capable of taking District 1-2 by storm after a successful regular season. The Panthers upset No. 1 Timberlake in the second round of the district tournament 3-0, advancing to the district championship. But the magic stopped there, as No. 2 Bonners Ferry defeated the Panthers 4-1. Senior Carson Spencer scored three goals for Bonners Ferry, helping his team secure a spot at state. CDA Charter also punched a postseason ticket and will take on American Falls. 

Girls Soccer

No. 3 Weiser defied the odds in the Snake River Conference tournament, upsetting No. 1 McCall-Donnelly 1-0 in the district championship to advance to state. The Wildcats came off a 2-1 victory over Fruitland in the opening round, marking back-to-back upsets heading into the state playoffs. Weiser will take on Grangeville in the opening round Thursday.

North Fremont 28, Firth 13

The undefeated Huskies experienced one of their closest calls in the 2019 season, scraping by a scrappy Firth squad coming off two straight wins. North Fremont can lock up the Nuclear Conference title with a win over Ririe next week.

McCall-Donnelly 45, Nampa Christian 19
The McCall-Donnelly Vandals dropped Nampa Christian out of contention for the Western Idaho Conference title while simultaneously preserving their perfect regular season record. The Vandals face Cole Valley Christian to close out the season, but their first-place spot in the WIC remains secure with a victory over second-place Melba earlier in the year. 

West Side 26, Bear Lake 0
The West Side defense could have won Friday’s game alone, putting up more touchdowns Friday than they have allowed in the last four games of the season. Easton Henderson kickstarted the turnover fest, recording a 56-yard pick six. Blaize Brown bookended the night with a 43-yard pick returned for a touchdown, as West Side cruised to a District 5 championship.

Melba 44, New Plymouth 28
The Mustangs cemented their second-place spot in the WIC, as quarterback Henry Clark threw for 169 yards and a pair of scores against New Plymouth. Running back Easton Bunnell recorded a trio of touchdowns as well ahead of the Mustangs season finale against the 1-6 Marsing Huskies.

Lost Rivers 70, Valley 20

The No. 1 Pirates put up 46 first half points to preserve their first place standing in the Snake River Conference. Lost Rivers and second-place Raft River are now on a collision course for the SRVC title, with both teams possessing an undefeated conference record heading into next Friday. 

Prairie 71, Kamiah 16
Cole Martin kicked off Prairie’s electric night with a pick-six, followed by three more offensive touchdowns. Quarterback Cole Schlader threw three touchdowns while Owen Anderson scored another four, as Prairie accumulated 317 yards of offense while putting up 65 first-half points. The Pirates remain unbeaten in Whitepine League play, with Clearwater Valley and Potlatch vying for the second-place spot with 3-1 conference records each. 

Oakley 34, Grace 8
The Hornets dominated in a fight for third place in the SRVC, pulling out to a 34-0 halftime lead. The Oakley defense took over the second half, with Grace’s only touchdown coming off a 76-yard run by Connor Mickelson. 

Potlatch 38, Genesee 14
With quarterback Justin Nicholson out with a broken thumb, brother Jerrod Nicholson took his place under center to help lead Potaltch over its conference opponent. The Loggers leaned heavily on the run game, accumulating 409 yards on the ground with Tyler Howard leading the charge with 133 yards.

Horseshoe Bend 72, Tri-Valley 6

Quarterback Austin Fry ran the ball just twice against Tri-Valley, but those two carries were all he needed to put up two touchdowns and 108 yards. Ethan Smith carried the rock the rest of the game for 190 yards and two touchdowns.

Lighthouse Christian 51, Murtaugh 16
The Lions racked up 349 yards in their Sawtooth Conference matchup, preserving their undefeated record and securing their regular season title. Quarterback Collin Holloway threw three touchdowns, while also pulling his weight on defense with a 48-yard pick-six. Running back Chance Gaskill ran just three times but recorded 49 yards and two touchdowns. 

Kendrick 60, Timberline 6
Chase Burke scored on 50% of his rushing attempts, notching 121 yards and four touchdowns on just eight touches. Kendrick ran just 28 plays in their rout over Timberline, failing to score less than twice until the fourth quarter. 

Garden Valley 60, Council 12
Senior running back Joaquin Fuhriman was handed the ball just four times Friday, but managed 119 yards on the ground, breaking off a 63-yard scamper and a touchdown. Quarterback Corban Fields took to the air for 123 yards on eight completions, finding the end zone twice.

North Fremont was lucky to leave Teton Valley unbeaten. Teton is underrated this year. Go Redskins!
