Stuart Johnson, Deseret News
Aug. 19 -- Timpview at Alta
Aug. 19 -- Bountiful at Lone Peak
Aug. 19 -- Fremont at Jordan

Some teams want to start off the season with an easy game but these three are high profile openers with top tier teams that chose to avoid early cupcakes.

No. 2 Alta, expecting to contend for the 5A state title takes on elite 4A and No. 6 ranked Timpview.

No. 11 Bountiful and No. 5 Lone Peak also square off in a 4A-5A tilt with with bragging rights at stake.

Finally, No. 3 Fremont, last year's 5A runner up and No. 7 Jordan, a team that also lost to eventual champion Bingham in the playoffs, will find out early how legit state title aspirations are.

Only four of the games involve Lone Peak? I sense a bias by the reporter.

Also, "Fremont at Davis" says "when Fremont hosrs the Darts"...which one is wrong?

toosmart,
Davis comes to "PC" for that game, will be a great game on our field. Maybe even better than last years thriller @ Davis.

I think that it is interesting that 3 of the 4 LP games to watch are against 4A teams... Granted they are top tier 4A teams but for the "team to beat" to have these games to watch against 4A teams means they aren't as great as everyone makes them seem... Also what happened to games of the week on KJZZ? Can't find anything online or on my TV guide. It will be a real shame if there are no games broadcast this year

I think Skyline vs. Olympus is still big. West vs. Highland has some intrigue. Westlake vs. Cottonwood should be a good one tonight.
