Anyone that has watched Desert Hills knows that they earned their wins.
It's no ones fault for injuries, Desert Hills has injuries too. Desert
Hills has earned the number 1 seed by beating the teams they needed to beat.
Dixie and Hurricane didn't win the games they needed to win, but are still
very dangerous teams in the post season.
I agree with R-9, DHHS is very fortunate to be the #1 seed. They were down 28-7
against Hurricane when the Tigers QB left the game. They also played PV without
their QB. Since the return of their QB they have been a different team. How, I
wonder, would DHHS fare against Hurricane or Pine View without their own QB, Ty
Rutledge? It will be interesting to see a rematch of DHHS and Pine View in the
semi-finals if they both make it. When you can load the box against the run
because you know a team can't pass it's a lot easier to defend.
That's a game I would really like to see.
Here's my take on dhhs: hard fought match with Dixie, don't know what
PV team showed up to play dhhs- Could have been the squabbling with coaches.
They earned the Hurricane win although tigers best guard got a concussion and
sat the rest of game, and qb/safety broke his hand. Lucked into Dixie losing
to snow canyon. They are tough - but it was the perfect storm to share region
and be 1 seed.
I have been watching the DH teams for several years now. They always seem to
play extremely hard and with alot of confidence. The QB (Ty Rutledge) is a very
good athlete and will take their team deep into the playoffs. I believe we are
all in for a treat as we watch the 3A playoffs. Spanish Fork, Stansbury, Dixie,
Juan Diego and Hurricane all could be dangerous. Good luck teams.
