5A Classification

Coeur d’Alene 21, Highland 17

Both Highland and Rocky Mountain came one game away from repeating a championship appearance, and both teams came up short. Coeur d’Alene earned a trip to the title game, which will be held in the Vikings back yard in Moscow, thanks to a fourth-quarter goal line stand by the CdA defense. The Vikings trailed 17-14 at halftime, but quarterback Jake Prka but the offense on his back, scoring on a 30-yard touchdown run. Coeur d’Alene faces Rigby in the state championship 1 p.m. PST Saturday in the University of Idaho Kibbie Dome in Moscow.

Rigby 31, Rocky Mountain 9

It took 22 tries, 22 opponents and 22 Friday nights, but the historic Rocky Mountain win streak finally came to an end against the Rigby Trojans. Rigby entered the game as a stark contrast to the perennial powerhouse from the Southern Idaho Conference. The Trojans ranked fifth the in the statewide media poll at the end of the season and had never been to a state championship game. Now, after the help of quarterback Keegan Thompson’s four touchdowns and a defense that held the Grizzlies to 188 yards of total offense, the Trojans will be on their way to the 5A title game. Rigby takes on Coeur d’Alene in the Kibbie Dome 1 p.m. PST Saturday in Moscow.

4A Classification

Kuna 70, Middleton 34

In order to win Friday’s matchup against Kuna, Middleton needed an old-fashioned football brawl. The Vikings needed to control the clock, control the trenches and control the game. The formula worked in the Vikings' previous playoff games against Moscow and Jerome, but the Kavemen offense was having absolutely none of it. As Sean Austin himself pointed out on Twitter, the Kuna offense has shown no signs of slowing down, as Austin has notched 10 touchdowns, 829 yards and not a single turnover since the playoffs began. Austin produced 414 of those yards Friday night at home against Middleton, as the Kavemen are just one game away from the school’s first state title since 1991. Kuna takes on Blackfoot in Holt Arena 6 p.m. Saturday in Pocatello.

Blackfoot 35, Nampa 14

Donavan Estrada made headlines and turned heads for his exceptional quarterback play down the final stretch of the season. But in Friday’s semifinal game, it was Blackfoot’s Teegan Thomas who stole the spotlight, running for 224 yards and scoring four touchdowns for the Broncos. The Blackfoot defense picked off the normally reliable Estrada twice and held the dual-threat quarterback to 107 rushing yards. The Broncos will face yet another 4A SIC team in the state championship. Blackfoot will play Kuna in Holt Arena 6 p.m. Saturday in Pocatello.

3A Classification

Homedale 51, Timberlake 6

The Trojans will once again reach the 3A state championship, where they will have another shot at defeating defending champ Sugar-Salem. The Trojans rolled past undefeated Timberlake Saturday, as Daniel Uranga came up big on both sides of the ball for Homedale, throwing four touchdowns with 349 yards while also coming up with two interceptions on defense. Homedale faces Sugar-Salem 3 p.m. Saturday in Holt Arena for a rematch of 2018’s state championship.

Sugar-Salem 52, Snake River 14

The Diggers put up double digits in three out of four quarters against Snake River, scoring on nine of their 10 possessions. Kicker Crew Clark nailed a pair of first-quarter field goals from beyond the 20, then hit his final of the night from the 27. The Diggers take on Homedale in the 3A state championship 3 p.m. Saturday in Holt Arena.

2A Classification

West Side 40, Melba 8

To say the game had been decided at halftime would be generous. The lights-out offense of West Side soundly sealed their fate en route to a 2A state championship appearance by the end of the first half against Melba, scoring 28 unanswered points. The Pirates didn’t need long to score, as Cage Brokens lived up to his last name, shredding tackles and speeding to the end zone on the game’s opening kickoff return. Christian Plancarte rounded out the first quarter with a pair of 16-yard touchdown runs. West Side advances to the state championship, where the Pirates will meet McCall-Donnelly 1 p.m. Saturday at Eagle High School.

McCall-Donnelly 23, North Fremont 12

All season, undefeated North Fremont leaned on the legs of running backs Riggen Cordingley and Deshon Wheeler to power their perfect record. But that strategy came back to haunt the Huskies in McCall, as the Vandal defense closed nearly every possible running lane for the two backs, severely limiting the offensive options for North Fremont. Conversely, the Vandal offense exploded against a seemingly exhausted Husky defense, with quarterback Peter Knudson running for 160 yards and throwing 93 more. Knudson found his favorite target — receiver Noah Ormsby — four times for 77 yards and a touchdown, as the McCall-Donnelly offense showcased its diversity and ability to keep defenses guessing. The Vandals punched their ticket to their first state championship, where they will face West Side 1 p.m. Saturday at Eagle High School.

1ADI Classification

Prairie 50, Oakley 22

The Pirate offense could not be stopped, with Prairie’s two Coles — Martin and Schlader — totaling 391 yards between them. Prairie, which played Friday’s semifinal game in the Kibbie Dome, will return to the University of Idaho campus to compete for a state championship. Lost Rivers, the Pirates' second consecutive East Idaho foe, will travel north for a 7 p.m. Friday kickoff.

Lost Rivers 36, Wilder 6

In what could likely be the Pirates first and last season at the 1ADI level, Lost Rivers earned a trip to the classification’s state championship in the co-op’s inaugural year. The bulk of the Pirates’ points came in the second half, as Wilder and Lost Rivers sat tied at 6 after two quarters. But three different Pirates scored in the third quarter, with Bridger Hansen scoring on a 20-yard run in the third and an eight-yard run in the fourth. Keyan Cummins scored on a 78-yard run as well, as the Lost Rivers defense shut out Wilder in the second half. The Pirates will face Prairie 7 p.m. Friday in the Kibbie Dome.

1ADII Classification

Carey 78, Garden Valley 33

Garden Valley had just one man they needed to stop Friday night, but Carson Simpson would not be taken down so easily. The Carey running back accumulated 303 yards and seven total touchdowns, earning the Panthers a trip to the state championship. Simpson helped shift the momentum in the Panthers’ favor with a second-half interception the preceded one of his many rushing touchdowns on the night. Carey takes on Lighthouse Christian noon Saturday in Holt Arena.

Lighthouse Christian 39, Kendrick 16

Brandon Houser rushed 20 times against Kendrick for 124 yards and three touchdowns, along with another receiving score for Lighthouse Christian. In an unconventional game for the Lions, Lighthouse scored first on a safety before relying heavily on Houser and the running game. The Lions will play once more in Holt Arena, taking on Carey for the 1ADII state championship.
