Coeur d’Alene 27, Rigby 21

After suffering a 24-0 defeat at the hands of Rigby in the 2022 season opener, Coeur d’Alene (1-0) flipped the script in a neutral site game at the University of Montana in Missoula. Player of the Game Jamison Kizziar finished 16-of-23 for 147 yards and three touchdowns.  Carsen Speelman rushed for 147 yards on 21 carries.  And the Vikings defense intercepted Rigby quarterback (and University of Montana commit) Luke Flowers four times.  Jaysen Cady came away with two interceptions, while Owen Harris and Nolan Christ each added a pick.

Flowers finished the contest 25-of-40 for 306 yards and two scores for the Trojans (0-1).

Eagle 36, Meridian 33

Eagle was picked to finish first in the Southern Idaho Conference’s River Division.  Meridian was picked number one in the SIC’s Foothills Division.

The Mustangs (1-0) won a tight back-and-forth battle, despite being out-gained in total yardage.  Davis Harsin went 7-of-15 for 160 yards and two scores and added 5 rushes for 68 yards and a TD.

Meridian (0-1) was paced by Marco Del Rio’s 131 yards rushing and one touchdown.

Rocky Mountain 31, Middleton 21

In a Week 0 matchup between Southern Idaho Conference Foothills Division opponents, Rocky Mountain (1-0 SIC, 1-0 overall) won a tight game on the strength of four takeaways on defense, including a 76-yard pick-six from Brody Swearhart.

Offensively, Gunnar Thompson went 16-of-27 for 195 yards and two touchdowns.  His top target was Jaryn Ikebe, who caught 13 passes for 87 yards and a TD.

Paxti Franks rushed for 97 yards for Middleton (0-1 SIC, 0-1 overall), while Weston Mills took an interception back 70 yards for a touchdown.

Borah 29, Capital 20

Jevon Nelson broke out for Borah (1-0) in a big way on Friday night, and Boise State offensive line commit Trevor McKenna set a new school record on the defensive side of the ball in a season-opening win over Capital.

McKenna came away with six sacks, a new school record, and Nelson rushed for 198 yards and two touchdowns, while adding in a 68-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Capital (0-1) quarterback AJ Danaha threw three touchdowns.

Kuna 20, Centennial 0

Kuna’s (1-0) defense smothered Centennial (0-1) in the season opener for both squads. Player of the Game Austin Lattimer led the way with 152 yards and a touchdown, while Luke Selto added 102 yards rushing, as well.

Boise 40, Timberline 28

Boise (1-0) fell behind 28-0, then scored forty unanswered points to pull away for the season opening win.  Alex Hess scored twice on the ground to key the comeback victory for the Brave.

Timberline’s (0-1) defense came away with four interceptions.  Austin Engroff came away with two, as did Aiden Nixon, who returned one of the picks 45 yards for a touchdown.

Owyhee 24, Madison 17

Madison (0-1) scored the game’s first touchdown on a four-yard run from Barkley Beck.  The rushing score gave the Bobcats a 7-3 lead in the second quarter. 

Owyhee (1-0) answered with a pair of touchdown runs from quarterback Matt Irwin to jump back ahead 17-7 lead in the second half. Player of the Game Gage Haws iced the victory with a 20-yard interception return for a touchdown.


Lakeland 17, Preston 7

For the third consecutive year, the Hawks and Indians met at Montana Tech University in Butte for a Week 0 neutral site game.  The Hawks won for the second year in a row behind a strong defensive effort and good rushing totals from junior Kage Weil. 

Weil scored on a 9-yard touchdown run, Haydon Benson hit Roan Reilly for an 18-yard score, and Owen Forsmann, a University of Idaho commit, booted a 32-yard field goal for Lakeland.

Preston’s Carson Winder rushed for 79 yards, finished with 49 receiving yards, and collected three sacks on defense.  Starting quarterback Reggie Larsen exited due to injury in the second quarter, and was relieved by freshman Carter Perry.

Columbia 51, Lowry (NV) 30

Jared Payne three for 161 yards and three touchdowns, and added 72 yards and a rushing TD.  But his contributions for Columbia (1-0) didn’t end there.  Payne also added nine tackles and a sack on defense.

Skyview 29, Elko (NV) 26

Skyview (1-0) trailed by 12 points with one quarter to play, but rallied back behind new quarterback Cache Beus.  Beus, a transfer from Melba, scored on a 2-yard touchdown run with 30 seconds to play to lift the Hawks to the win. 

Overall, Beus was 9-of-14 for 111 yards and three touchdowns, and added 107 yards and a score on the ground.

Minico 28, Thunder Ridge 14

With a new head coach in place (Sherm Blaser), many thought Minico might veer away from their run-heavy offensive attack of the past few seasons.

But the old ground-and-pound worked well for the Class 4A Spartans (1-0) in a 28-14 win over Class 5A Thunder Ridge (0-1). Player of the Game Carson Wayment scored on an 80-yard touchdown run, and also threw a 15-yard TD toss to Ryker Stimpson.  He finished the night with 212 yards passing and 135 yards rushing.  Preston Sonner-Cranney added two rushing scores, as well.

Ezra Moss finished with 303 yards passing and two touchdowns for the Titans, while Hudson Harker caught nine balls for 154 yards and a score.


Timberlake 42, Grangeville 21

Class 3A Timberlake (1-0) sprinted past 2A Grangeville (0-1) thanks to 229 yards and three touchdowns from the arm of Cole Meidinger.  Jacob Yetter accounted for 176 receiving yards and two scores, while Caius Tebbe (135 yards), Cooper Lenz (87 yards) and Vaughn Higgins (88 yards) all did solid work on the ground.

Payette 36, Caldwell 30

This non-conference game between Class 3A Payette (1-0) and Class 4A Caldwell (1-0) was tight throughout.  After the Pirates held a 14-12 lead at halftime, both teams exploded for 40 second-half points combined.  The game was delayed twice by lightning, but ultimately, new Payette coach Kurt Taylor picked up a win over former Payette (and first-year Caldwell coach) Kip Crofts.

Wood River 12, South Fremont 7

The Wolverines (1-0) picked up a home win against South Fremont (0-1) behind some late-game heroics.

Wood River struck first on an 8-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Ipsen to Anton Holter.  The conversion failed and the Wolverines led 6-0.

That lead held until late in the fourth quarter, when South Fremont scored on a 33-yard touchdown reception by Skyler Forbush.  The point-after kick was successfully converted, and the Cougars led 7-6 with 2:34 remaining.

But Wood River marched downfield and answered, as Ipsen connected with Holter again for a 20-yard strike with 48 seconds remaining.  Again, the conversion failed, but Wood River led 12-6. 

South Fremont tried one final drive, but Ethan Desler came away with an interception to end the game.

Richfield (UT) 28, Snake River 0

Snake River (0-1) traveled to the Beehive State to face the Richfield Wildcats on Saturday night, and came away empty handed, 28-0.  Richfield improved to 2-0 with the win.

Sugar-Salem 43, Century 0

The Class 3A Diggers (1-0) piled up 282 yards rushing in a shutout win over Class 4A Century (0-1).  Carson Harris led the charge with 87 yards and two scores. Player of the Game Ryan Bingham registerd two sacks, two tackles for loss and a blocked punt as part of the defensive effort for Sugar-Salem.

Century quarterback Deagan Crabtree passed for 87 yards.


Wendell 28, Cole Valley Christian 14

The Trojans (1-0) piled up 361 yards of total offense, including 231 on the ground, in a non-conference win over Cole Valley Christian (0-1) to start the season. 

With the game tied at 7-7 in the second quarter, Wendell quarterback Alex Hirai broke free for a 32-yard touchdown run on a fourth-and-12 play, and from there Wendell had the momentum.  The Trojans defense also came away with two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Malad, 12, American Falls 6

Class 2A Malad (1-0) scored on a 24-yard touchdown pass from Braylen Tripp in the second quarter and a 5-yard touchdown run late in the fourth to go ahead 12-0.

American Falls scored on a 36-yard touchdown pass from Dax Brower to Beau Brower with 1:20 to play.  A subsequent onside kick attempt failed, but the Beavers got the ball back one final time with 12 seconds to play.  A desperation heave fell incomplete, though.


Grace 34, El Capitan (AZ) 16

Grace (1-0) started its season off with a strong Week 0 victory at home over El Capitan of Arizona.


Mullan/St. Regis 20, Clark Fork 6

The Mullan/St. Regis co-op held off a feisty Clark Fork squad in a North Star League game to open the season.  Freshman quarterback Conner Lulis threw two touchdown passes, covering 52 and 53 yards, to running back John Pruitt in the win.

The Wampus Cats, led by first-year head coach Patrick Young, twice drove inside Mullan/St. Regis’ ten-yard line, but came away empty on both trips.

Wallace 54, Kootenai 14

Wallace led 22-0 after one quarter of play on their way to a season opening win over Kootenai in North Star League play.

Wallace’s youth carried the day, as freshman Jackson Pierce scored two rushing touchdowns, while freshman Reece Williams added a third score on the ground.  Additionally, freshman Henry Larson found junior Julian Davis twice for touchdowns, and Davis added a touchdown on a reverse.

Horseshoe Bend 52, Wilder 8

The 1AD2 Mustangs (1-0) galloped to a 38-0 lead at halftime over 1AD1 Wilder (0-1).

Carson Drake threw four touchdown passes to Kaelun Jones, covering 57, 53, 50 and 21 yards in the victory.
