Great match up. Should go to the wire. Very even in all 3 phases. Home field advantage wins.

I like Riverton to win this one.

Perhaps Riverton will look past Northridge like the author did. A little more research might have made the preview a bit more credible. Northridge's second leading rusher is actually the starting quarterback after the starter and "leading passer" went down in the game against Syracuse with a very unfortunate, season-ending broken collarbone.

Riverton walks away with this one in the first half.

Northridge is not what they were early on, they are on QB #3 and their offense is not designed to take that kind of hit at that spot

Northridge is putting up similar numbers total yardage wise as they were earlier in the year. Just less passing and more rushing. And they are on their 2nd QB, and that QB has been playing the last 4 games so he is settled in. Obviously the author didn't do any research on the Knights and only looked at the stats so its easy to see why this article leaned one way. I fully expect the Knights to win this game, the teams that they struggle against are the bigger teams in size and Riverton is not one of them. I think the Knights put up about 40, it will be interesting to see how they do defensively though. They will probably give up 21. Every year no one gives region 1 any credit but I think they all advance to the 2nd round just like region 3's teams.

For those of you who think that this game will be won in the first half you are in for a real treat.

Northridge blows this one wide open in the first half and wins easily 49-0. Get ready to be shut out on your home field Riverton.

HAHA Riverton wins by 21. They will give some points up, as they don't have the stoutest of defense. But they will score a lot against that NR team. They may though want to lose, because if they win, they are just setting their selves up for a real beat down against Bingham the next week.

Riverton is solid. don't know much about Northridge but I know they will not be upsetting tonight.

If you don't know much about Northridge, then how do you know that they won't be upsetting anyone tonight? It doesn't make any sense...it's like saying I don't know much about math, but I know that 2 + 2 = 5....

Well obviously you don't know much about Riverton since Northridge wasn't able to complete that 49-0 shutout that you predicted. 31-14 Riverton.

Riverton doesn't stand a chance against Bingham, enjoy this win, but its a 2nd round exit next week , MINER PRIDE!!
