FOOTBALL

Post Falls 21, Coeur d’Alene 6

The Trojans wrapped up the regular season title in the Inland Empire League with a strong defensive effort.

Jake Bustamante rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown in the win, while Jose Laguna returned a fumble 40 yards for a Trojans score, as well. IdahoSports.com Player of the Game Trevor Miller forced the fumble that Laguna returned, and had five sacks and eight hurries.

The Warriors racked up 419 yards of total offense, while holding Capital to just 112 yards total. Zeke Martinez threw for 253 yards and four touchdowns for Meridian in the win, while Luke St. Mitchell added 59 yards and a touchdown rushing on just three carries.

Rocky Mountain 49, Timberline 0

The Grizzlies officially wrapped up second place in the SIC’s Foothills Division with the shutout win over Timberline. Tegan Sweaney finished with 158 yards passing and four touchdowns in the win.

Rigby 41, Thunder Ridge 14

Rigby kept pace in the High Country Conference with a win over Thunder Ridge. The Trojans will face Madison in their regular season finale. The winner finishes second in the league and gets an auto bid into the playoffs. The loser takes third and will have to try and qualify via an at-large berth.

Emmett 21, Vallivue 20

This Southern Idaho Conference battle was tied at 14-all with 8:44 to play. Tyson Fox scored on a ten-yard run to give Vallivue the 20-14 lead, but Fox’s two-point conversion attempt was stuffed by the Emmett defense. From there, the Huskies marched down the field, and Ry Fullerton ran in a three-yard score to tie the game at 20-all. From there, Tucker Welling’s point-after kick was good, and the Huskies won 21-20. With the win, Emmett clinched second place in the SIC and the automatic playoff bid that comes with it. Vallivue will play Boise in a non-conference game, and are still in good position to grab an at-large playoff berth.

Twin Falls 44, Canyon Ridge 25

Canyon Ridge led their rivals from Twin Falls at halftime by a 19-16 score, but the Bruins outscored the Riverhawks 28-6 in the second half to pull away. James Noorlander rushed for 210 yards and a touchdown, while Wyatt Solosabal chipped in with 98 yards and three scores on just eight carries. Austin Crum threw for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns, as well. Twin Falls faces Minico in their regular season finale. The winner is the Great Basin Conference champion. The loser will finish in second place. Either way, both teams will qualify for the playoffs via the league’s two auto bids. Canyon Ridge’s playoff hopes are in jeopardy now, although a win over Burley in their regular season finale might qualify them for an at-large bid.

Burley 44, Jerome 0

A 22-point outburst in the second quarter propelled Burley to the Great Basin Conference win over Jerome. IdahoSports.com Player of the Game Ramsey Trevino led the way with three rushing touchdowns.

Pocatello 41, Preston 21

Pocatello earned a win over Preston in their South East Idaho Conference opener, setting up a showdown next week with Century in a game that will decide the league title.

Hunter May threw two touchdown passes for the Thunder, to Krue Hales and Alex Winn.

Bonneville 16, Skyline 13

Bonneville authored one of the signature upset wins of the season, knocking off perennial power Skyline in a low-scoring affair. Linebacker Jacob Perez led the way, as he finished with eight tackles and three interceptions, including the game-sealing INT as Skyline was driving with less than a minute to play. Despite the loss, Skyline will battle Shelley in the regular season finale with the conference title on the line. If the Grizzlies win, they finish first. If they lose, they can finish no lower than second. As for Bonneville, the Bees significantly increased their chances of making the playoffs via an at-large bid. Bonneville concludes their regular season against Blackfoot.

Hillcrest 22, Shelley 10

Hillcrest went to Shelley and handed the Russets their first conference loss of the season. Despite the loss, Shelley will battle Skyline on Friday, and with a win, will take first place in the High Country Conference. A Shelley loss coupled with a Hillcrest loss to Idaho Falls would give the Russets second place. However, if Shelley were to lose, Blackfoot were to lose to Bonneville, and Hillcrest were to get a win over Idaho Falls, Hillcrest would finish second. If Shelley loses, Hillcrest loses and Blackfoot wins, that creates a three-way tie for second place.

Blackfoot 44, Idaho Falls 14

The Broncos snapped a four-game losing streak in dominant fashion on Friday, as IdahoSports.com Player of the Game Javonte King hauled in four touchdown receptions in the first half. Jaxon Grimmett threw six touchdowns in the first half, as Deegan Hale and Kayden Parsons also hauled in TD receptions. Blackfoot will not be able to finish higher than third in the High Country Conference standings. There are only two auto bids available from the conference, but Blackfoot is comfortably in the 4A postseason via an at-large bid.

Homedale 42, Fruitland 14

The Trojans wrapped up the regular season Snake River Valley Conference title with the win over Fruitland. Jaxon Dines was his usually efficient self, completing 14-of-17 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Fruitland will host Weiser in the regular season finale on Friday. The winner takes second in the SRV; the loser will finish third. Either way, the Grizzlies have at least clinched an automatic playoff bid.

Weiser 57, Parma 0

Weiser built up an early lead and held firm from there in an SRV win over Parma. Andrew Enders completed 5-of-6 passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Weiser will travel to Fruitland in the regular season finale. The winner takes second in the conference, while the loser will finish third. Either way, Weiser has clinched one of the three playoff auto bids available from the SRV.

McCall-Donnelly 28, Payette 20

The Vandals picked up their second SRV win of the year. A top three finish is out of reach for McCall-Donnelly, but the Vandals are still comfortably in the 3A postseason as an at-large team.

Buhl 34, Kimberly 29

Buhl won the Sawtooth Central Idaho Conference championship in a narrow win over Kimberly. Jayce Bower rushed for more than 300 yards in the win. Kimberly officially clinches second place.

Wood River 42, Gooding 2

Wood River got off to a shaky start, fumbling the opening kickoff at their own five-yard line. The Wolverines recovered, but the first snap of the game went over the head of quarterback Sawyer Grafft, and out the back of the end zone for a safety and a 2-0 lead for Gooding. From there, Wood River settled in and officially clinched third place in the SCIC and the automatic playoff bid that comes with it. Grafft threw for four touchdowns in the win, while Jack Herlinger rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries.

Snake River 42, American Falls 0

The Panthers clinched the South East Idaho Conference title and a top five seed into the playoffs with the win. Levi Belnap rushed for 99 yards and three touchdowns for Snake River in the victory.

The Diggers rolled to the Mountain Rivers Conference win over Teton, setting up a showdown with South Fremont next week in a battle for the league title. IdahoSports.com Player of the Game Danny Neal threw for 272 yards and three touchdowns, and added two rushing scores for good measure. Despite the loss, Teton is still comfortably in the 3A postseason picture via an at-large berth.

Marsh Valley 41, South Fremont 21

The Eagles surged past South Fremont in a Thursday night non-conference battle. Bradley Belnap threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns for Marsh Valley. Alex Vaughn rushed for 81 yards and two twouchdowns, and caught four passes for 102 yards and a touchdown, as well.

Kellogg 50, Grangeville 12

Cole Valley Christian 34, Marsing 0

Declo 42, Filer 21

The 2A Hornets rushed for 229 yards in the win over 3A Filer. Will Garrard also threw for 126 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Declo faces Wendell in their regular season finale.

Wendell, however, needs to win to assure themselves of a sure spot in the postseason.

Bear Lake 28, Soda Springs 6

The Bears remained in first place in the South East Idaho Conference with a tidy victory against Soda Springs. Bear Lake will face Aberdeen in the season finale.
