plyxply - thanks.We suspected there was more than meets the eye on
razorback - Engstrom broke his collarbone in the 1st quarter and Blackner tore
his acl in the third. Even still the Hawks didn't game plan to run Engstrom
much, they had Allen #1 with the ball most of the plays in the 1st quarter. Not
sure why they wouldn't give Engstrom the ball when he was in there but they
didn't. Questionable game plan by the OC in my opinion. They put their jr qb
in after Blackner went down and he picked up some yards scrambling but really
wasn't effective, just ran around in the pocket, wouldn't throw the ball and
then fumbled when he got hit. They put their soph qb in at the end of the 4th
when they had the ball on their own 1 yard line and he drove them to the
Syracuse 16 before getting sacked on 4th down to end the game with a minute
left.Syracuse brought the heat all day and deserved the win.
I understand that injuries are part of the game, but a healthy Alta team blows
Syracuse away in this one. Just look at the start: 10-0 in the first quarter.Hat's off to Syracuse though for getting the win. Did what you had to to
et a win against a very good Alta team on the road.
Binghamalum, Just a question? where was Bingham before the last 3 years....yep,
that silence means....absolutely nowhere, you are no where near the dynasty that
Skyline was and it only took Northridge 3 years to win their first State
Championship and they did that for 3 years beating Skyline that had won I think
6 straight so please do us all a favor and sit down. I think it is ok for a
Syracuse fan to have some faith in their team...and please remember that most
championship teams earned their championships by using the players that lived
within their school boundaries unlike Bingham that has to recruit.
@ the Hawk - Injuries are part of the game but id be willing to bet if alta had
their qb and rb in the game the hawks would have won As no article
was written about this game, can you please provide more insight to this
comment? Did something happen to Blackner and Engstrom?
Syracuse beat Desert Hills 14-12. Hurricane beat Desert Hills 38-7. Point
made, and don't start talking about head to head. Things can happen in any high
school game.My comment is just in response to your smooth comment
HHS FAN,nice comment when a good syracuse team beats Alta,You have not won state the last 3 years, or anytime before that really, and
your all a sudden back up to thinkin you can hang, smooth talk though.Beat JD first before you even get to 4A and 5A and skyline is an average 4A
team so you know! Great win for the Titans! Picks for
Next week,Bingham very closely over Fremont 24-21Syracuse 28
West 7Lone Peak 54 Northridge 20Jordan 30 Viewmont 10Best games by far Bingham Fremont! Will be a classic!
I thought the top 3A teams couldn't beat the top 5A teams! This just proves
that they can, and anything can happen. Syracuse is not exactly one of the top
Congrats Syracuse! Huge win for you guys! Hmm... Region 1 is 3-1? And still
getting disrespected! Come on now we might not have the super teams like bingham
or lone peak but we do know how to play some football up here! But continue to
overlook us and we will sneak right by you! Once again congrats Titans and the
rest of region 1!
Injuries are part of the game but id be willing to bet if alta had their qb and
rb in the game the hawks would have won
Syracuse Region 1 Brothers!!! Congrats on dominating Alta......Alta that soo
many know-it-alls saw going all the way. Syracuse is a team Fremont deeply
respects and we wish you the very best in round 2. Everyone in Plain City knew
you guys were going to be the spoilers, and I predicted such last week.
@titan4life and @Gotitans! I was wrong and I am so sorry for not giving Syracuse
a chance. Sorry for disrespecting Syracuse's Football team. You guys sure
proved me wrong and I have incredible respect for Syracuse. Not so much for
Region 1 but Syracuse shut Alta down. Thanks again for ruining my bracket.
Careful what you wish for titan4life
@titan4lifeI would rather play fremont than Bingham just saying haha, and
plus we need to pay them back for beating us this year 15-3 :D
wow, guess that's why they play the games. Lesson in not looking ahead I guess.
Don't get ahead of yourselves Titan fans and already believe you will meet up
to titan4life - If I were you, I would be hoping that Fremont wins. You don't
really want to face Bingham do you? Having confidence is a good thing but asking
to play them is just plain stupid. You may be able to beat them but you would
have a better chance of playing on the turf if Fremont wins.
I now can't wait to hopefully play Bingham in the semi's!
@ SC53 I thought your beloved Hawks were supposed to be so much better this
year? Looks like region One is just a little bit better than you thought.
Congrats Syracuse go Region One!
@titan4life1haha made me eat my words!! and im glad i did!! GO TITANS!!
HAHA woohoo party at Syracuse tonight!!
Wow. Well, that's that. I'm now more familiar with the Titans. I guess I've been
great win by the syracuse titans! congrats mr titans4life you made
me eat my words thats amazing your defense was unreal, alta overlooked you! as did i! good luck next week!!
and Alta loses! didn't see that one coming. Maybe for once region 1 really is
strong. Credit where it's due, good job Syracuse. Looks like I'm going to be
cheering on Alta's 2 biggest rivals now. Go Jordan and Bingham! Make the 5 mile
club proud! (JD too)
16-10 at the end of the 3rd.
16-10 at the half SYRACUSE!
10-0 with 32 seconds remaining in the 1st quarter. looking familiar.
No rebuttal titan4life1?
@titan4life1Im not a hater, i go to Syracuse, and will be cheering for
Syracuse BUT im being realistic
I will start laughing at all of the haters when Syracuse wins!!!!!
@titan4life1Yes i agree with you about the davis game, but the Northridge
game the kid that blocked it, he saw an oppurtunity and took it, yes it was
frustrating (especially since it was the Homecoming game) but give credit where
credit is due! But GO ALL REGION 1 TEAMS!!
All hype? Alta has owned region one the last few years besides last when we
lost over half of our coaching staff. Keep saying alta is all hype. This will be
like last time alta played syracuse at RES. It's gonna be a bloodbath.
@titan4life1How much that i would love to see Syracuse win, I doubt it,
yes its good to cheer for our highschool buuuttt we have to be realistic. Will
we lose, most likely, but i want our team to play there hardest and make the
game close and than if we do win!! Party! but lets be realistic.
@ ProudBigBrother Some evidence for you: Syracuse got ROBBED by the Refs
in the game against Davis on a mysterious face mask call that nobody saw when
Davis funbled and we got the ball...which happened to cost us the game.
Northridge got lucky on that last second blocked field goal against us...So
Syracuse should've finished 9-1 and the number 2 seed in Region 1...instead we
are 7-3 because of poor calls by the refs and playing an Alta team that is
pretty much all hype.
I would love this to be a tough win for Alta! It would keep the starters in
longer for more playoff experience and help them prepare mentally for game 2 b4
focusing on Bingham possibilities. Plus, I would love to see Syracuse
successful, if not victorious. Less than 3 hours to go!
Northridgefan5-Alta won a mere 4 games last year. Getting beat in
round one of the playoffs didn't "stun" anyone at Alta. The only
thing that left Alta "stunned" last year was actually making the
playoffs. It is sad to think that the highlight of any Region 1 teams' high
school career was defeating the 4-7 2010 Alta Hawks. But then again, having
watched several Region 1 teams the last several seasons, I can understand
there's not a lot to remember fondly.
I'm not saying that Syracuse is going to win, but let's not forget that a Region
One team stepped up last year and smashed the Hawks in the mouth on their home
field and left them stunned. Good luck Titans!
I agree with Titan, Syracuse was within a couple of plays of being the #2 seed
in Region 1 and are a good team with excellent coaching. They have a stout
defense and aren't going to give anything away. I still think Alta wins by 2 or
3 td's, but this won't be a typical 1 v 4 blowout game. I could even see it as
a close game at the half with Alta pulling away in the second half.I
predicted Alta v Lone Peak in the final before the season started and still
think that will be the case, but there are some great football games ahead of us
and anything can happen.Alta may struggle a bit on offense but their
defense could pull off another shutout, and the D is the reason they could win
By the way, there was a rather serious typo in this aticle - The Alta Offense is
averaging 39.2 ppg, not 29.2. That's a pretty significant difference. And it may
seem like a typo that the Alta Defense is only allowing 12 ppg, but that
actually IS acurate... hehe
@ titan4life1Alright, Titan. I've seen you post similar comments on other
threads, even saying that Syracuse will come out victorious... So let's hear it;
what, other than loyalty, makes you think that the Titan's will bring down the
Hawks? What are they going to bring to the table that will make the game
"closer than predicted"? I'm not mocking, I'm simply inviting
you lay out your opinion in a little more detail. I'm not very familiar with
Syracuse, but I do respect them. My friend is a coach on their team and they
have made some great progress in their region the last couple years. So educate
me. I'd love to be more familiar with them before the game.
While it's a little early to be talking about the championship, the dialog is
already going here, so what the heck... I predict Alta Vs. Lone Peak for the
title. I think Alta has Bingham's number in a playoff rematch, provided they
both make it to the Semi's, which seems likely. As for the title game, LP
DOES have a running game, in their wonder boy Chase Hansen! And he has shown
very few moments when he hasn't been "on", so leaving victory hopes to
the chance that Chanse won't be in proper form in the championship is a poor
game plan for Alta.But Alta's running game is better than
"decent"! Brian Engstrom by far leads the league in rush TD's with 19
and he has nearly broken 1,000 yards, and that isn't counting his receiving
yards/TD's, which are also substantial, with 22 receptions for 472 yards and 2
TD's.Alta's defense is amazing and their offense is more balanced than
Bingham's or LP's, so I'm confident they can compete and beat either team, and
bring that trophy back where it belongs! Go Hawks!!!
this game will be closer than predicted...
I don't see lp winning it all, if it's bad weather they are done. You need a run
game in November. Bingham has a good run game and Alta has a decent run game.
One of them will take it. Now if it is good weather and chase is on his game, lp
will be tough to beat.
So long syracuse
You are right, Alta will get to the finals against Lone Peak and will sadly
lose.I have a soft spot for Alta my younger brothers played for the Hawks
back in the early 80's so the Alta " Back in Black " was the AC/DC
motto then as it is today but I truly feel that Lone Peak has the State Crown
Syracuse is a good team but Alta will still win. I'm calling it, Alta wins the
State Championship this year.
Sad like Davis they have no offense this year.
