Sad like Davis they have no offense this year.

Syracuse is a good team but Alta will still win. I'm calling it, Alta wins the State Championship this year.

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 this year.

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.

this game will be closer than predicted...

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!!!

@ titan4life1
Alright, 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.

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

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 it all.

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!

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 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!

@ 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.

How 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.

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.

Yes 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!!
