Meridian 47, Madison 28

The Warriors (7-3) earned their first playoff victory since 2007, in a game that wasn't decided until the second half.  Quarterback Malakai Martinez scored twice on the ground, as did running back Kross Antonnacchi.  Martinez and Antonnachi also hooked up on a touchdown pass.  Madison finishes 6-4.

Capital 44, Lewiston 13

Kody Walk showed why several college coaches are interested in his services.  Walk rushed for 76 yards and 2 touchdowns, and also racked up 5 sacks on defense.  As a team, Capital (7-3) totaled 9 sacks against an overmatched Lewiston (7-3) offensive line.

Eagle 31, Borah 15

The Mustangs (8-2) showcased their offensive versatility, as six different players (Jack Benson, Ian Duarte, Deegan Martinho, Brandon Reese, Roy Hull and Ethan Cutler) all had a hand in the 31 points scored.  Borah finishes their season at 5-5.

Highland 45, Skyview 28

Jack Whitmer carried Highland (8-2) to a first round win that was closer than the final score indicated.  Whitmer finished with 175 yards and 2 touchdowns passing, and added 73 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground.  Skyview (5-5) was led by wide receiver TerRyk Pennington's 196 yards and 3 touchdowns receiving.


Sandpoint 46, Mountain Home 0

Sandpoint (6-2) scored all 46 points in the first half of action.  Parker Pettit finished 7-of-8 passing for 122 yards and a touchdown, while Gerrit Cox chipped in 87 yards and 4 touchdowns on the ground.  Mountain Home finishes 3-7.

Shelley 36, Preston 13

The Russets (7-3) scored 36 unanswered points to race past Preston (6-4) in a first round matchup.  The Russets rushing attack was on point, as Kaden Kidman found the end zone three times, while Ryker Clinger chipped in a pair of TD runs as well.

Nampa 37, Emmett 29

The ground and pound duo of Daniel Carrillo and Ryan Schuler helped spring the 13th-seeded Bulldogs (6-4) to the upset win over the 4th-seeded Huskies (7-3).  Carrillo finished with 156 yards and a touchdown, while Schuler chipped in an additional 134 yards and a touchdown.

Blackfoot 52, Middleton 24

The Broncos (5-5) blew past Middleton (5-5), thanks in part to the all-around play of Deegan Hale.  Hale caught 3 touchdown passes from Jaxon Grimmett, and also intercepted two passes.  Grimmett threw for 407 yards and Ja'Vonte King hauled in 10 catches for 197 yards in the win.

Pocatello 24, Bonneville 6

The Pocatello defense delivered a first round win for the 2nd-seeded Thunder (8-2).  Carson Christensen intercepted 2 passes, while Matt Christensen and Krue Hales also came away with picks.  Hales' interception came with under 4 minutes to play.  Bonneville (2-8), trailing 17-6, was driving for a late score when Hales intercepted a pass at the goal line and returned it 100 yards for a game-clinching touchdown.

Bishop Kelly 49, Twin Falls 21

Seth Knothe rushed for 196 yards and 4 touchdowns for Bishop Kelly (8-2).  But the Knights also showcased their balance on offense, as Jason Buss hauled in 2 touchdown receptions as well.  Twin Falls finished the year 7-3.

Vallivue 28, Minico 12

The 14th-seeded Falcons (6-4) held the vaunted Minico rushing attack to just 92 yards in the upset win.  Santi Diaz tallied 2 rushing touchdowns and 1 passing score for Vallivue on offense.  Third-seeded Minico, the only undefeated team entering the 4A playoffs, finishes the year with a 9-1 record.

Skyline 42, Lakeland 21

Lakeland (5-5) held a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter, but Skyline (6-4) ripped off the next 42 points to earn a win that was tougher than the final score would indicate.  Kenyon Sadiq hauled in six passes for 94 yards and three touchdowns, and also scored on a one-yard plunge.  Isaac "Joker" Farnsworth returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown and also recovered a fumble for the Grizzlies defense.


Weiser 62, Buhl 20

Brock Spencer made several outstanding offensive and defensive plays for Weiser (9-1), including a 67-yard touchdown reception, as the Wolverines zoomed past Buhl (3-6) in their playoff opener.

South Fremont 35, Kellogg 30

Kaimen Peebles helped South Fremont (5-4) advance in a back-and-forth affair with Kellogg (6-3).  Peebles finished with 121 yards passing and a touchdown, and also scored twice on the ground in the win.

Snake River 32, McCall-Donnelly 0

Snake River's rushing attack helped lift the Panthers (5-4) past McCall-Donnelly (4-5).  Snake River rushed for 229 yards as a team, and quarterback Cole Gilbert threw a touchdown, rushed for a touchdown, intercepted a pass on defense, and also came away with a fumble recovery.


Firth 43, Aberdeen 8

The Cougars (7-2) held a tenuous 15-8 lead at halftime, but blitzed past the Tigers (3-6) in the second half to earn the win.  Sam Park finished with 75 yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground for Firth in the win.  

Bear Lake 14, Cole Valley Christian 3

In a low-scoring affair, the Chargers (5-4) scored the first points of the game, taking a 3-0 lead midway through the first half.  Bear Lake (6-3) responded with a touchdown pass from Tayson Neal to Bryson Crane in the second quarter to lead 8-3 at halftime.  The Bears maintained that advantage until 6:48 remained in the contest, when Crane scored the game-clinching rushing touchdown.

Melba 18, West Jefferson 12

Cache Beus threw for 225 yards and a touchdown as Melba (7-3) held off pesky West Jefferson (5-4) in a first round win.  Beus' TD went to Dillon Stosich, who hauled in 4 catches for 145 yards (a 36.3 yard per catch average).  The Mustangs' defense also collected 3 interceptions in the win.

Grangeville 21, St. Maries 14

In one of only two regular season games played in Idaho this past week, Grangeville (3-5) won the Central Idaho League title over St. Maries (1-5).  Jared Lindsley scored on a 1-yard touchdown run with less than a minute to play, propelling the Bulldogs into the playoffs.  Because the district champions receive automatic byes during the first round of the 2A playoffs, Grangeville and St. Maries were able to play this league-deciding contest while the first round of the playoffs was happening simultaneously.  Grangeville now advances to a quarterfinal matchup with West Side.


Oakley 64, Wallace 8

The Hornets (8-1) advanced to the quarterfinal round with a resounding victory over Wallace.  The Miners had to win a Kansas City Tiebreaker with Lakeside on Monday to earn their spot in the playoffs, and finish 3-5 on the year.

Lapwai 58, Clearwater Valley 6

The Yearout brothers helped lead Lapwai (7-2) past fellow District 2 foe Clearwater Valley (3-6).  Titus Yearout threw 3 touchdowns to Ahlius Yearout.  Ahlius added 2 touchdowns on the ground, while Titus scored on a rushing TD as well.

Potlatch 46, Grace 8

Tyler Howard churned out 172 yards and 3 touchdowns rushing, and also hauled in a 35-yard TD pass from Tyson Tucker, as Potlatch (6-3) surged past Grace (4-5) in a first round playoff win.

Genesee 62, Murtaugh 36

Cy Wareham could not be stopped in this first round romp for the Bulldogs (7-2).  Wareham finished with 9 catches for 202 yards and 2 touchdowns on offense, and also added 11 tackles and a 65-yard interception return for a touchdown on defense.  Murtaugh finishes its season at 5-4.


Castleford 70, Watersprings 0

Castleford (8-1) breezed past Watersprings (2-7) in their playoff opener.  Quarterback Eric Taylor displayed his versatility in the win, as he routinely gashed the Warriors through the air and on the ground.

Rockland 46, Garden Valley 6

Rockland (6-3) showed off their offensive explosiveness in a first round win over Garden Valley (3-6).  Quarterback Gavin Permann threw 5 touchdowns in the win, including 3 to Teague Matthews.  Matthews also threw a touchdown to Permann on a double pass play.

Carey 54, Timberline 6

The Panthers (9-0) remained unbeaten with a first round win over Timberline (3-4).  Conner Simpson scored three times on the ground for Carey in the win, and Riley Morey hauled in two touchdown receptions.

Dietrich 60, Council 38

The defending 1AD2 champs piled up 523 yards of offense, as Dietrich (6-3) surged past Council (5-3) in an opening round win.  Cody Power rushed for 236 yards and 3 touchdowns, and added 139 yards and 2 scores through the air for Dietrich.

Camas County 42, North Gem 36

The Mushers (3-6) pulled off the upset of the first round, rallying back from a 20-6 halftime deficit to stun North Gem (7-2).  Camas County outscored the Cowboys 28-8 in the fourth quarter.  Marcus Staley scored twice on the ground and once through the air for the Mushers in the win, including the game-winning rushing TD with just 31 seconds to play.
