Highland High Pride
Salt Lake, UT

Let's go Rams!!!! Sione Houma should be returning this week. Highland needs to get that win out in Bountiful to keep school support behind back-up QB Justin Weaver. Fish may not return for sometime, as he is still on crutches. Look for number 20 to make some big passes to #49 Hayes Hicken and #9 Malcom Card-Turner. And Sione Houma to once again dominate the run game. Playing in Bountiful is hard, both of our state championship teams lost every game at Bountiful and Woods Cross. Let's see the Rams turn that around this year.

Enterprise, UT

I'am going with all of Perry's picks this week but with a diff score.

Beaver 42 Grand 18
Gunnison 17 Am Leadership 6
Kanab 38 South Sevier 12
Manti 28 South Summit 17
Millard 45 Emery 10
No.Summit 35 No.Sevier 6
Richfield 35 Parowan 0
San Juan 42 Enterprise 20

Lets hope I'am wrong on one game? No? I know San Juan is really good!

Salt Lake, Utah

R9 Playoff Breakdown Sept 23

PV @ Cedar

One of these teams, but not both, will likely get a R9 playoff berth. Question is, which one? This game could go a long way toward settling the issue.
PV faces a must-win situation. A loss to Cedar would leave Panthers' playoff hopes on life support, with Hurricane likely to pull the plug next week. Cedar, with only 1 region loss, could lose this game and still have a playoff shot. I like the Redmen to get their first win in a close one.

Dixie @ DH

Winner of this one has the inside track to the No. 2 playoff slot in R9. Loser is probably No. 3 seed. A DH win will have Thunder dreaming of R9 title. However DH still has to play Hurricane and Cedar. Its prolific Flyer O vs stingy Thunder D. Should be a great game. IMO too close to call.

SC @ Hurricane

A battle of R9 unbeatens. But seriously, SC is unlikely to be a playoff contender this year. Probably the only thing Tigers need to worry about is not looking past Warriors to PV next week. Not likely to be close.

Boys of Fall
Fillmore, UT

2A Picks:
ALA/Gunnison- Both teams were shutout last week. Who wants to score this week? BTW #44 Harris for the Bulldogs is a very good player. Gunnison 28 ALA 14
Emery/Millard- Both teams posted shutouts (see above). Who will stop the other team from scoring? Millard 35 Emery 14
N. Summit/N.Sevier- The Wolves are still looking for a region win, but the Braves will be too much. N.Summit 21 N.Sevier 14
S.Summit/Manti- The game of the week in 2A. The Wildcats pull off the upset on the road in a tough defensive game. SS 19 Manti 17
Grand/Beaver- The Beavers continue to establish themselves as the only possible real threat for SJ. Beaver 35 Grand 7
Richfield/Parowan- The Rams finally get a TD in region play, but not a win. Richfield 21 Parowan 7
SJ/Enterprise- The Broncos suffer a little bus lag, but are still too much for the Wolves. SJ 28 Enterprise 14
S.Sevier/Kanab- SS still looking for 1st win of season. They won't find it in Kanab. Kanab 21 SS 7

Good luck to all the teams.

Tooele County, UT

My 3A Picks:
Bear River over Ben Lomond
Canyon View over Ogden
Delta over Carbon
*Desert Hills over Dixie
Grantsville over Tooele
Hurricane over Snow Canyon
Juan Diego over Uintah
Judge over Wasatch
*Morgan over Stansbury
Park City over Union
Payson over North Sanpete
*Pine View over Cedar
Spanish Fork over Juab

BIG games:
*DH/Dixie - Will this decide # 2 and 3 seed?
*Morgan/Stansbury - If Stansbury wins there will be a region title showdown with Grantsville. If Morgan wins then region title possibly could end in 3 way tie IF Stansbury beats Grantsville.
*PV/Cedar - Will Cedar pull off the victory over D1, high and mighty Pine View and push them out of the playoffs?

Tooele County, UT


I'm meaning if Morgan, Grantsville, and Stansbury all win their other games too! Forgot to put that!

Mr. Morgan
Morgan, UT

As I said in another thread... Morgan doesn't make the playoffs. They also lose big this week.


With two weeks of preparation, and Pine View falling apart, I have got to take Cedar over Pine View this week. Cedar gave Hurricane a scare two weeks ago and I believe they have what it takes to knock off PV. Should be a very intriguing match up! Best of luck to all teams this week!

Dr Rush
Saint George, UT

For Pine View the next 2 games are the biggest of the year and perhaps many years.This current team has been touted as one of the best in their history so if they lose this week in Cedar, and Cedar always gives them trouble, they could be out of the playoffs.If this current team does not make the playoffs that would be one of the biggest melt downs ever.Still time for PV to turn it around,we'll see what the team is made of.

Somewhere, UT

Good to hear Carver's and Boy's of Fall's predictions for 2A.

ALA/Gunnison This one comes down to who wants to redeem themselves after last weeks shutdowns. Gunnison 27 ALA 13
Emery/Millard I think this might be closer than people are thinking. Millard 20 Emery 13
N. Summit/N.Sevier I might have to disagree with Carver and Boys of Fall on this one. To much passing from North Sevier. Sevier 27 Summit 13
S.Summit/Manti This will be a defensive battle. Manti 14 SS 7
Grand/Beaver Beaver continues to show a good defense. Beaver 28 Grand 7
Richfield/Parowan Rams have struggled to find offense and that will continue. Richfield 34 Parowan 6
SJ/Enterprise Sorry Boy's of Fall no falling a sleep on the bus for the Broncos. My apologies Carver. SJ 41 Enterprise 6
S.Sevier/Kanab I agree that SS won't be leaving Kanab with their first win. At least they can look forward to having Parowan coming to town in two weeks. Kanab 35 SS 13

just sayin'
Woods Cross, UT

Cyprus sorry it's going to be ugly! CATS will be done in quarter 1. GO WX!!

South Jordan, UT

Just sayin' it would be easy if you were to Play Bingham,

Show some class man, uncalled for, and watch your mouth when your not even the cream of 4A yet or have ever been in football for that matter.

Let it go! Say good luck Cyprus!

Play hard may the best teams win!

One Week from today, Lone Peak finally Visits Bingham!
Its on TV so everyone should check out two of the premier teams in the State along with Alta.

Bountiful, UT

I am a huge Wx supporter and am not even sure just sayin is actually one. Might be some kid tryin to give Wx a bad name. That's my suspicion, anyways. Hope my cats get the win, like they should. But I also hope it is an entertaining game. Good luck to both teams.

minersville, UT

2A picks
Millard 38-Emery 7. millard is definitely looking like the team to beat in 2A.
Manti 24-S.summit 7. Manti keeps rolling.
N.summit 26- N.sevier 7. sorry bear ur way off on this one.
Gunnison 27-ALA 13.
San Juan 24- Enterprise 9. wolves score but just 3 field goals.
Beaver 28- Grand 10.
kanab 34- S.Sevier 20.
Richfield 27- Parowan 7.

Murray, UT

Murray's coach apparently resigned today. Nice guy but struggled. Certainly there has to be someone out there that can turn a program around....please! We have the athletes up until they reach high school and decide to quit or transfer to other schools.

Enterprise, UT

NorthSummit21/NorthSevier20---Close one
SanJun14/Enterprise15--E-town D will surprise and they win on a 2pnt conversion.

Some may say how do I have the mighty San Juan going down to Enterprise? Comes down to long travel and overlooking what they think will be an easy game. Enterprise's defense will show up to play! The winning streak ends on Friday. Go Wolves!!

Blanding, UT

I dont think San Juan goes to Enterprise and blows them out, but San Juan wont lose this game. Im thinking Boys of Fall is right on this one.

Boys of Fall
Fillmore, UT

Thanks for the vote of confidence. To say that there will be "no falling a sleep on the bus for the Broncos" is a stretch. That's a LONG drive. But, you guys are pretty used to that. It's not as far for us but my son says that going to Enterprise reminds him of the movie Glory Road. When they're on the bus headed to El Paso & the coach tells the players "Welcome to God's country" & one of the players says "If this is God's country He sure don't want no neighbors" (or something like that). I actually didn't think it was that bad. El Paso was much worse.
Hope you have a safe trip.

Enterprise, UT

What more could a tiny town hope for than being nestled right between ST.George and Cedar City. Come on Wolves, kick some behind!
