    Region 2 is a joke! The UHSAA needs to strongly reconsider balancing the regions next time around. What they have this year is beyond ridiculous!

    Region 1 and Region 2 are done in the first round. Has that ever happened before at any level? (Two regions getting swept by two other regions)

    Holy cow!

    Yep, over at halftime.

    Taylorsville will do their damage in the spring, on the diamond

    "Taylorsville wins first playoff game ever and beats Alta 31-7. Mark it down! :)"

    I'm guessing since you added the "Mark it down" to your comment, that perhaps you are being sarcastic about Taylorsville's winning it's first playoff game ever. But in case you are not,however, the article states that T-ville has played 13 playoff games, winning 3. They actually played Skyline for the State Championship in 1999.

    I still believe it will be over by halftime. I am not sure if it has anything to do with Alta even having a bad year. I would venture a guess to say I think Alta may have gone undefeated had they played T-Villes schedule this year. The one hiccup may have been Davis early in the season, but I still would take Alta then and today. You are right though. Alta and Jordan are not as impressive this year as years past. But I honestly believe they are a whole half of football better than anyone in Region 2. Thus me saying that I think it will be over by halftime.

    Then again, that is why they play the games. So no matter what any of us say here. We all have to wait for the final outcomes tonight.

    I may be up in the night, but I haven't been impressed with either Alta or Jordan this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see Alta win, but it won't be over at halftime. Alta is not the same team that it was last year. They played one good game against Bingham, but could not finish.

    A previous poster mentioned that TVille were shut out against Davis and only scored once against Alta. Check where both defenses rank in their respective classifications.

    Doubtful for the Warriors to win, but they will play Alta tou.

    This game isn't even close. Taylorsville deserves prop for turning what has been a perennial dog of a program. But Alta has too much firepower. I'm calling a 42-7 beat down.

    I am not even sure Taylorsville will even score. Against the teams this year that are even decent they could not score as well as they did against the teams like Hillcrest, Murry, etc. They scored 0 against Davis, they scored 7 against Olympus (4A), and scored only 14 against Cottonwood. Great season for them in a very down and poor Region 2.

    Alta will win big and as plyxply says, it will be over by halftime. Alta I think puts up 40+ and I am not sure T-Ville even scores.

    Hagatha obviously knows nothing about high school football. Alta will have the game won by halftime and will play their jv's and still win by 35. Taylorsville had a nice season by their standards, but it's a different ballgame when you play Alta or Bingham or Jordan or Brighton and they won't have the size or speed to deal with the Hawks.

    Alta wins this one 27-14. Region 2 gets swept out of the playoffs, and they would in 4A too.

    It won't be that close, more like 35-10.

    Sorry Taylorsville, this will be oneside game. Alta wins big. They will be more worried about the next game at Lone Peak or Syracuse. Alta will be cheering for Lone Peak, shorter drive. Anoter tune-up game for Region 3.
