Guess it's time to start these things up again!
Fruitland @ Gooding: A young Fruitland team went on the road and gutted out a win against South Fremont in a back and forth slugfest. Gooding meanwhile took Parma behind the woodshed, and well, yeah. Fruitland has beaten Gooding 4 times in a row, but I'm having a hard time seeing Fruitland getting a 5th. Gooding pulls away from Fruitland for a 41-26 win.
Homedale vs Melba: Homedale had a bit of a slow start against New Plymouth before hitting the accelorator and zoomed right on by. Melba meanwhile dominated the 2nd half to cruise to a 42-18 win over West Jefferson. Melba appears to be a much better team than previous seasons, but Homedale is still a superior team. Homedale cruises once again 42-14.
Parma vs Vale, Or: Parma has been struggling for the past several years. Vale, Or meanwhile has a long and storied history with multiple championships spanning multiple decades. On the bright side, Parma won't have to face a team quarterbacked by an FCS powerhouse committ, but on the other hand, Vale is still a much better football team. Vikings sail on 38-14.
Payette vs New Plymouth: Both teams were on the wrong end of blowout losses. While New Plymouth won't be turning any heads in the 2A ranks, their program is in much better shape than Payette's. New Plymouth gets its first win of the season with a 44-6 drubbing.
Weiser @ Kellogg: Weiser went on the road to Buhl and rolled to a 41-14 win. Kellogg meanwhile lost to St. Maries 14-0. Weiser has been on the up recently, and Kellogg with 1 exception has been struggling. Weiser 42-6.
