The Cats took on a strong Highland squad and after falling behind by double digits at halftime, we learned about a big heart in the Cat residing at Woods Cross High.
To wrap up a regular season of ups and downs, Woods Cross had to win to keep alive its chances at a state playoff berth. Woods Cross did just that smacking around Highland in the second half of the game en route to a 31-23 victory.
If the East High Leopards can beat Highland on the Rams’ home turf Thursday, then Woods Cross will wiggle into the state playoffs.
And when Woods Cross has played at its best it has proven to be a team no one would want to see, especially early in the playoffs.
But to add to the intrigue, if Woods Cross gets into the playoffs, they would have to beat the team that helped them get in.
Viewmont was primed and ready for Roy in a game the Vikings needed to keep out of the Region 1 basement. The Vikes showed they have improved immensely and remained excited to play football in the 66-0 beating of the Royals.
The win also showed Viewmont will come out swinging in its final game at Clearfield next week.
All year Coach Brad Lloyd talked about his confidence in his team’s mental state and willingness to play on during those tough nights. Viewmont proved Friday night that even without a state playoff berth a chance, Lloyd was right on.
The Bountiful Braves looked supreme in their win over Stansbury and have showed that they can move the ball and shut down teams at the same time.
Davis can get beat. It took a defensive classic game where the Darts played well, but were unable to overcome an early score by Fremont in their 14-6 loss.
Davis will once again get the chance to show what many already know…that the Darts bounce back after losses with vengeance.
Davis has been a calm team all season long and there is no reason to expect anything different this week.
