You can check out all the updated brackets below.


-Behind another standout performance by star running back Nick Romano, Rocky Mountain handed Coeur d’Alene its first loss of the season in a 42-14 win. Romano ran for three touchdowns and 205 yards and Colby Jackson connected with Kaden Birch twice in the end zone for passing touchdowns. The score was 21-14 in favor of the Grizzlies at the half, but a 21-0 second half performance was too much for the visiting Vikings to handle. Garrett Beck and Jaxon Pabst each had interceptions in the win for Rocky Mountain, which plays Highland at Albertsons Stadium on Saturday at 10 a.m. in the 5A championship game.

-After leading 21-6 at the half, Highland held on and ended Mountain View’s season in a 28-18 semifinal win. Thanks to a drive spanning almost six minutes and 30 seconds in the fourth quarter, the Rams did not give the Mavericks any late opportunities to put a dent in the ten-point lead. Landon Demuzio ran 23 times for 146 yards and a touchdown, plus had six catches for 57 yards and a touchdown receiving. Kobe Tracy was 19-26 for 174 yards passing with two touchdowns to put the defending champion Rams right back in the championship game. Noah Bryant threw for almost 300 yards in the loss for Mountain View. Jaymon Barrus ran for 117 yards and Blake Jablosnki and Kaden Chan each eclipsed 100 yards receiving.

-After missing out on their seemingly annual state championship appearance last year, Bishop Kelly is back for what is now the fifth time in the last six years thanks to a 34-27 win over Vallivue. The Knights lost 13 players who were selected as First Team, Second Team or Honorable Mention All-SIC from a season ago, but plenty of talent stepped up in a big way all year to give the program a chance to win what would be its first state title since 2015. Bishop Kelly was effective on the ground and through the air in this one. Beau Nelson went 8-11 for 93 yards and a touchdown, while Ian Arellano (89 yards), Thomas Rizzo (81 yards), Jackson Huskey (77 yards) and Brady King (68 yards) all had impressive rushing performances. Bishop Kelly plays Hillcrest on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Albertsons Stadium in Boise for the 4A state championship. Jayden Moran had 113 receiving yards in the loss for Vallivue.

-Hillcrest had what could arguably be viewed as the best rushing performance throughout the state all year in a 41-20 victory over Nampa, running for 579 yards. A trio of standouts also ran for over 150 yards each for the Knights including Oakley Hussey (202 yards and two touchdowns), Kyle Austin (160 yards and two touchdowns) and Trae Henry (168 yards and two touchdowns). The Knights only threw the ball three times in this game, with one completion for two yards. If Hillcrest can win on Saturday against Bishop Kelly it will be the first state title for the school since the 2008 season.

-Stop us if you have heard this before, but Mason Kincheloe of Homedale had another huge game. In a 35-20 win over Timberlake, the running back piled up 298 yards and three touchdowns. This will be the first 3A state title appearance in school history for Homedale, which has won eight titles in other classifications. The Trojans will head to Middleton on Saturday at 1 p.m. to take on the Sugar-Salem Diggers.

-After scoring the final 14 points of the game in a 56-27 win over Kimberly, Sugar-Salem is headed to the state championship game for the first time since 1988. One of the things that benefited the Diggers in this one was a defensive effort which held an explosive Kimberly backfield led by McKade Huft (17 yards) to just 40 yards on the ground. Tanner Harris had a huge day for Sugar-Salem in this one, going 11-13 for 315 yards and three touchdowns through the air, plus an additional 41 yards and a score rushing. Kyle Ostermiller also had 17 rushes for 122 yards and a touchdown. Gerohm Rihari had four catches for 110 yards and a score. 

-Keegan Duncan was off to the races early and often to the tune of 234 rushing yards, 119 receiving yards and even 36 passing yards, finishing with seven total touchdowns in a 61-28 Declo win over West Side. McKay Breshears went 5-8 for 142 yards and touchdown as well for the Hornets, who move on to play North Fremont in the 2A state title game on Friday at 5:30 p.m. inside Holt Arena.

-North Fremont never gave Grangeville much of a chance in a 57-28 handling of the Bulldogs at the Kibbie Dome. The Huskies ran for an astonishing 575 yards and were led by the 228 from quarterback Garrett Hawkes. Riggen Cordingley (185) and Blake Oberhansley (150) each also had huge rushing totals. North Fremont’s win secured the first state title appearance since 1989 for the school, which was also when current head coach Ben Lenz was a member of the program as a player. 

-Oakley took a 14-0 lead over Prairie and ended up finishing off the Pirates by a final score of 26-22 inside of Holt Arena. Despite being injured and out for the remainder of the year, Hornets starting quarterback Tate Cranney suited up and was able to head out to the field for the final play of the game to take a knee and celebrate the win with his teammates, a cool gesture by head coach Kade Craner. Austin Bedke had an interception return for a touchdown, Chandler Jones connected with Travis Barnard for a passing score, Josh Nyman had a kickoff return for a touchdown and Jones scored on a quarterback run late for the four touchdowns that Oakley had in this one. The Hornets play Valley in the 1AD1 state championship on Friday at 8:15 p.m. at Holt Arena.

-Valley got a mighty scare from the Wilder Wildcats in a 42-40 semifinal win. As the Wilder offense was driving in Valley territory towards what would have been the game-winning score, Jason Hardy picked off a Pablo Martinez pass to escape the threat with just 18 seconds left. Hardy went 13-20 for 206 yards and three touchdowns on offense, in addition to 137 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Collin Tvrdy’s 12 tackles and a sack led the defense. 

-Thanks in large part to five Collin Holloway touchdown passes, Lighthouse Christian held off a resilient Salmon River football team by a final score of 40-26. Brandon Houser and Tyler Munsee each caught two touchdown passes, Clay Silva had one and Chance Gaskill ran in a touchdown from two yards out in the win. The Lions now move on for a rematch with the Carey Panthers, a team they lost to earlier this season. Salmon River’s Canyon Harper ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. During the game Harper also broke his ribs and had to switch to wide receiver, where he caught three passes for 26 yards, including an impressive one-handed grab. This game marked the final one on the sideline for legendary head coach Charlie Shepherd for the Savages.

-Carey led for 47 minutes and 34 seconds of game action and blew out Kendrick 80-36 in a battle of previously unbeaten teams. Hunter Smith went 8-9 for 244 passing yards and two touchdowns, Porter Mecham ran 16 times for 173 yards and four scores and Carson Simpson had 84 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the Panthers in the win. The defense was also impressive, as Smith and Max Dilworth had interceptions, Porter Larna had two sacks and Dallin Parke had five tackles and a sack for the defending state champions.
