Way to go tigers. We made it back to the finals. On another note. Spanish Fork you played one heck of a game. I was really impressed with the quarterback. He knew where to put the ball, and made some great throws. They are a great team, and played their hearts out. my hats go off to them.

Go Region 9! I am a Dixie High alum, but since graduating I have put High School rivalries behind me for the most part (although I must admit I still enjoy seeing Snow Canyon lose). I am excited that whether it is Hurricane, Cedar, or Desert Hills, a Region 9 team will come away with the state championship this year. However, I must admit I would be even happier if it could have been my Flyers this year.


@samwise You sound like you've put the rivalries behind you (unless Dixies playing of course:)
Great job tigers. Showed great poise tonight. Get healed and rested for next week. Scott was player of the game but Parkers dynamite passing opened everything up. Condor, Yardley, the line, actually everyone played large.

Salt Lake City, UT

Scott was consistently great and SF had no answer for him, but Yardley saved the game with that huge interception in the end zone, so he gets my POG vote. If SF had scored a touchdown there, HHS could have easily been down 21 before they saw the ball again after SF got the ball in the 2nd half.

Impressive win Tigers! SF brought it tonight, and you didn't give in when it counted and now move on to yet another ( back-to-back-to-back-to-back ) trip to the 3A State Championship game... That in itself is impressive!

Many of us are a bit nostalgic and will be disappointed that we can't watch yet another exciting H-Town/JD match-up in the finals - but here's hoping for yet another classic championship game involving the Tigers, and that this year you can bring home the title!

To our Friends up in Spanish Fork - great game Dons! You showed why you belonged in the semi's with a gritty performance... You've done your School and Community proud with this impressive year of football - hold your heads high!

To Tiger Fans and Region 9 Fans - see you next Friday at the RES!!


One of the best games I've seen in years. Congrats to the Tigers and way to go Dons! Hayden, you were amazing! Now let's get baseball season here!


Yardley's interception was on the Dons sideline and it was the turnaround point for the Tigers. Thompson's interception was the one in the endzone right before half and you are absolutely correct that it saved the game. If we go down 28-14 at half I'm not sure we pull this one out.

Roses are red, violets are bigger, you shouldn't play, with a Hurricane Tigger.

Oh Jo Momma is throwin it down!

Great win for Hurricane. They are a tough group of kids. Spanish Fork is a great team and Hurricane pulled out the W. That shows how much these Hurricane kids want that title. I really hope the state title game will be Cedar vs. Hurricane at Hansen Stadium in St. George. That will be a Sweet Game!

Go Redmen.

So is it true that the UHSAA is "contractually obligated to KJZZ" to have the 3A final at RES?

I would have liked to see the Dons go all the way, but the Tigers really pulled it together there. Good luck to Hurricane in the finals!

Utah Hs Sports Fan

I believe so. I was was down on the field last night and after the game I over heard a convo that the uhsaa is already getting some series pressure to move the game. They said they will have to wiegh the options and see what they can do. It didnt sound very good but you never know. I personally as a kid would love to play at RES. Thats what you play for is to make it to the turf. For most of these kids it will be their only chance to play in a college stadium. Most wont play in college. I played at a 2a school and we played out state championship at SUU. It was great to play for a state title but would have been even better if would have got to play on the turf at RES. I know times are tough and hard to travel but for the kids sake it would be great to play there. Especially for a team like Cedar or DH who has never been there before. Great game! Hurricane is a very well coached and desiplined team disciplined. Baseball will be here soon enough Spanish.

Congrats to Hurricane AGAIN, they look like a well oiled Machine. They just played very sharp and a matter of fact they were going to win. Finally will have a Region 9 champ. Once we make it a dynasty down here, college coaches may start pulling kids from down South.


"For most of these kids..." they will play in a college stadium if they move the game to southern utah (Dixie State, or SUU).

It makes no sense to play this game at REC. The cost would be tremendous (gas for 10 + buses just to bus teams, bands, and student body) The economic cost for Washington County also huge (countless parents and fans missing work, countless parents and fans gas and food costs, countless....) It would much simpler to send a couple cameramen and announcers south rather than an entire community traveling north.

Congratulations to Spanish Fork on a well-played game. They gave Hurricane a battle. From a fan's perspective, a GREAT game.

Congrats to the Tigers for accomplishing their fourth consecutive trip to the finals. Very workmanlike. Kudos to the coaching staff and props to the large Hurricane crowd who drove 300 miles to see the game!!! Very impressive!


* be much simpler :)

Heber, Utah

Here's hoping that Hurricane doesn't end up as the Buffalo Bills of Utah high school football (4 straight championship games, no titles) Fun game to watch, good luck Tiggers!

Hurricane, 00

I started my teaching/coaching career at Spanish Fork, so I can feel for the Dons. (I hate to say that was 42 years ago). There is nothing that can lesson the hurt of losing such a great game. I think someone else already said it, but it came down to which team had the ball last. I hope it is time to "bust the door down" next week, no matter who we play. Way to go Tigers!

Lake Forest, CA

Congrats to the Hurricane Tigers...NICE WIN. Ha Ha a 3 point win at that..how familiar is that?? ha ha. (different when you are on the winning side ehh??)

Where is Hamobull and USO....crow is a sour tasting meal....the Tigers deserve some congratulations...lets hear it.

Good luck in the Final Tigers...make the most of it!!

This is one JD EAGLE fan cheering for the TIGERS!!
