Lone Peak by 20? Seriously?
Ya maybe. Good Luck Northridge, and yes it will take luck. I hate to say it but this feels like Northridge, Bingham of last years 2nd round. Out of hand by the 2nd quarter. Hope I'm wrong!

Why not us? I like it! Lone peak is the better team no question about it! But this has a very different feeling than the Northridge/Bingham game. Bingham was the best team to ever play in Utah and Northridge is better this year and far more dynamic on offense then they were last year. Also Lone Peak is not that Bingham team. This is a much different feeling. It's the playoffs where anything can happen, proven by syracuse. So why not us!

Good Luck Northern Knights!


I'm not saying it can't be you, what I am saying is its not likely. Lone peak is a steam roller and I as a fan of high school football don't see them easing up at all.
In all honesty I hope Northridge pulls out the up set. First and for most I am a region 1 fan. I am also a realist without the cardinal colored glasses on that sees clearly. Northridge is as good as I've seen since the title runs in the early 2000's, and I wish them the best of luck. Its unfortunate that Lone Peak picked this year to be hands down the best team in the state.

Good luck to all, best time of year!


Playoffs do mean anything can happen. The teams have a similar feel and unfortunately I think the deciding factor in this game will be the "D". Northridge can hang on "O" but there "D" doesn't stop anything.

I agree with your last comments completely. Lone Peak is the best team in the state this year, and our D has had a few ugly games but they have also shown up big when they are needed to. If the Northridge offense from the cottonwood and davis game shows up we have a legitimate shot tomorrow.

no, Hansen can be stopped. and this was proven by Misi Afeaki, sacked Hansen hard and was taken out the 1st quarter. was anythin serious but lone peak coaches felt tht wasnt an important game to loose there all star quarter back so hit him hard enough and he will be stopped.


Let's call this one Davy fighting Goliath. Makes for a great story. I say that the post season comes and you throw a lot of the stats right out the window. This is the time for Cinderella teams to step up and take their turn in the spotlight! Go Ridge! Give 'em ALL you Got! And when you don't think you have any more push your pedal through the floor! We know how much heart and soul you really have as a team. Northridge City is behind you! Ya NR is my emotional favorite, but you never know. That's why they play the games!


If Lone Peak keeps doing what they're doing then Lone Peak will win. Lone Peak will have to lose this game for Northridge to win. (If you know what I mean.)
2-12whs: Are you talking about Semisi Afeaki for West? Didn't know he injured Hansen last year. Good Job lol.


Northridge has Adams, but Lone Peak has Hansen. Unfortunately the Chase Hansen Knights will take this one.

Lone Peak 42-28
