    Congrats to the Alta Hawks. After watching both games I'm really not sure how the Hawks will come close to scoring enough points to be anywhere close. They are young, scrappy and determined. The challenge is that AF isn't a good shooting team. There isn't a chance in the world that LP will shoot 29%. Too many scorers and no HS team in this state can play shutdown defense for 4 Q. against this line up. The other thing, is LP plays in your face defense unlike anything that other teams in the state play or are used to. Take nothing away from from Alta, they played great and deserve to be in the championship game tomorrow. The ball was held today to keep LP to 53 points, problem was the Bengals could only get 27 themselves. That won't win you a championship against LP.

    Great job Alta! That tough defense is paying off big time. Coach Barker is doing a great job with this team. They will definitely have their hands full tomorrow. Just hope for another great defensive effort and low scoring game!

    What time is the championship game sat? Will it be streamed televised?
