Get Ready for Thursday football!
This weekend is officially the beginning of the 2nd half of the football
season in the 5A SIC and to make things even better, there are four
games tonight as the schools are taking advantage of having no class
today or tomorrow.
Vallivue has the tough task this week of
traveling to Eagle to take on the Mustangs. The Falcons got running
back Mike Burk back last week, but will he and Parker Garner be able to
score with the Tanner Mangum and the Mustangs?
intriguing game of the night is Capital at Rocky Mountain. The
Grizzlies are a juggernaut offensively, but the true test of the night
will be to see if they can stop TJ Clarke and the Capital offense that
seems to be hitting their stride. Rocky quarterback Riley Bradshaw is
only a sophomore and his future looks bright. He already has amassed
1121 yards through the air with 12 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions.
Meridian plays at Centennial tonight in a matchup of two teams
trying to rebound after tough losses last Friday. Centennial is still
hurting on the injury front and Meridian will try and take advantage
behind running back Hayden Stout. Stout is leading the conference with
724 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns.
The final game of the night
takes place at Bronco Stadium when Mountain View travels to take on
Boise High. The Mavericks will try to avoid a let down game against the
Braves after coming up big in a 38-14 win over Borah last Friday. The
top ranked defense in the SIC will have to try and stop Braves
quarterback Tanner Gustavsen who is third in the SIC with 1094 yards.
