The Davis vs Pleasant Grove match-up is the game of the week in 5A. I believe that Pleasant Grove pulls off the upset and then matches up with Jordan next week.

I'm predicting Region 1 to go 1-3, Region 2 to go 0-4, Region 3 to go 4-0 and Region 4 to go 3-1 in Round to create some exciting Quarterfinal games.

Quick note - Region 4 did not use any coin flips in determining the seeds. Two sets of tie-breakers were applied (total common wins and head to head) to determine the seeding.

Look for Region 4 to get 1 and possibly 2 teams to RES!!!!

Davis controls PG and limits big plays similar to Riverton and Lone Peak. Davis by 10.

Syracuse tops Lone Peak, Riverton and Herriman win.

I like Region 4 to sweep Region 1. We will find out tomorrow of course what the overall outcome is. Either Region 4 is way over-rated, or Region 1 is unchallenged this year like many think and they are the over-rated. This is always a fun time of season for High School football. Good luck to all teams!

Both regions stink. It will play out 2-2 and both will get swept out next week when they have to play Region 3.

Of all the Region 1 teams that will win, Davis has the best chance. Not because of talent or size, but coaching. They seam to out coach Region 1 teams for years and will know what to in tight games. If it is close at the end Davis coaching will find a way to win.

If you have ever played a football game against Davis High on their home field, you would know that they have a great home field "advantage" and will end up finding a way to win the game. I've played six games at Davis High and our team was undefeated and going to easily go into the playoffs and Davis was a lowly 3-6 and had to win the game to make the playoffs...and somehow they ended up beating us 13-9 when we had been scoring 30+ points all year long against opponents. I won't say how they did it or my comment won't be posted, but let's just say that we had three touchdowns called back for the infamous "holding" penalties etc. and it got more ridiculous as the games went on. I've seen it done at Davis High for years not only in football, but basketball, soccer, and baseball as well.

I agree with PigSkin, to me this is the only game in which I have any worry at all for Region 4. If PG wins this game, Region 4 sweeps this week just like Region 3 will. That would make for a great next week of:

Brighton @ Herriman - I would actually like Brighton in this one, but do not look past Herriman. They are better than people are giving them credit for because of their record which includes games against Jordan, Bingham, and a loss that should have never happened at Highland

PG @ Jordan - I think this would be a great game. Jordan is down this year a small bit, but I would take Jordan.

Alta @ Lone Peak - I would take Lone Peak in this rematch, but you never know.

Riverton @ Bingham - I would take Bingham again in this rematch.

I did say at the beginning that Region 3 would be the entire semi's. And that it would be Bingham and Brighton in the end for another great game. But don' count Reg. 4 out yet, I think they just might be able to surprise a couple of teams in the second round.

I think PG put all their eggs in the basket last week to get that win vs Herriman. Not that they didn't have the talent to do it anyway. But just think it was a lot of emotion going into that game. I think Davis wins this one. I think LP beats Cuse, and Herriman and Riverton win their games. But next week it's a totally different scenario for Region 4. Brighton puts the wood to Herriman, and Riverton (Diet Bingham) finds out what a real team looks like.

Gunner -

I agree with your post. You just may be right about PG. I will still take PG, but I agree with you. If any region 4 team is going to be beat, I think it is in this game. And you are right, a steady dose of Bingham next week for Riverton will be ugly. I think Bingham for one is just way to big for Riverton. Again, just my two cents.
