ROUND 2

Middleton vs. Mountain View

 


MIDDLETON VIKINGS
The Vikings had a memorable four-year run from 2015 to 2018, reaching the 4A tournament in ’15 before winning three consecutive championships in ’16, ’17 and ’18. In ’18, Middleton was the “B” seed out of District 3, but shut out back-to-back “A” seeds to reach the championship. After falling in the first game, the Vikings won the “if-necessary” contest 1-0 to claim its third straight title.

MOUNTAIN VIEW MAVERICKS
Mountain View swept through to the state championship in 2019, winning the three games by a combined score of 31-7. The Mavericks also took home the title banner in 2014, along with third-place finishes in ’12 and ’18. The team qualified for the 5A tournament six times between 2010 and 2019.

Fruitland vs. Eagle

 


FRUITLAND GRIZZLIES
The Fruitland Grizzlies, from District 3, started the decade strong. The team finished second in 2010, won back to back titles in 2011 and 2012, then finished third in 2013. The Grizzlies qualified for the 3A tournament again in 2014 and 2018. 

EAGLE MUSTANGS
Only in comparison to the previous decade could the three state titles earned by the Eagle Mustangs seem disappointing. The Mustangs won five championships from 2000 to 2009 before winning three in a row this decade (’15, ’16, ’17). On top of those three titles, Eagle finished second in 2018 and third in 2013 among its eight total appearances in the 5A state tournament.

Bishop Kelly vs. Mountain Home

 


BISHOP KELLY KNIGHTS
Bishop Kelly needed to win a play-in game to even reach the 2019 tournament, ultimately beating Idaho Falls 1-0 to win a weather-shortened, single-elimination tournament. It was the Knights’ third title in seven years (’13, ’15, ‘19) while the team finished second in 2014. Overall, Bishop Kelly reached the 4A state tournament six times in the ten-year stretch.

MOUNTAIN HOME TIGERS
Mountain Home’s lone appearance in the 4A state tournament in 2010 resulted in a championship, though the route was not a straight line. After beating Pocatello, the Tigers were toppled in the semifinals by Kuna, forcing Mountain Home to a loser-out game. The Tigers defeated Hillcrest to reach the championship against Kuna. Mountain Home would have to win twice to win the title. It did.
