LOGAN – After a full regular season of high school football, two Cache Valley teams qualified for the playoffs. The Ridgeline RiverHawk and Sky View Bobcat football teams will each take the field Friday afternoon for the opening round.
Ridgeline will start the tournament at home as the 3AA North Region’s third-ranked team and will play the South Region’s No. 6 team, the Snow Canyon Warriors. The Warriors finished the season tied with Cedar City and Hurricane in the standings, but lost a coin toss against each team to get the last seed.
Ridgeline finished the season 5-2 in region and 7-3 overall after winning its last three games by an average of 33.7 points. The two region losses came against division leader Stansbury and second place Tooele by a combined seven points.
The game will start at Friday October 28 at 4 p.m. in Millville. If Ridgeline is able to get past the Warriors the team will travel to Desert Hills High in St. George to take on the Thunder.
Sky View got the No. 3 seed in 5A’s Region 1, finishing behind Fremont and Roy. The Bobcats are set to play against the Lehi Pioneers on the road.
Sky View finished its season 6-3 overall and 4-2 in region, losing to Highland and Fremont on the road and Roy at home. The Pioneers are 7-3 overall and have losses to Lone Peak, Springville and American Fork. The only opponent the two teams have in common is Riverton, which resulted in a win for both.
If Sky View is able to beat Lehi, the Bobcats will either play the winner of a three-way play-in game between Granger, Hunter and Layton at home or will go on the road to take on an undefeated Bingham team.
The Bobcats will play Friday October 28 at 4 p.m. in Lehi.
