The pecking order is starting to establish itself
Fruitland vs Weiser- 2 weeks ago, Fruitland was on top of the world with a 22 game winning streak. After losing to Middleton and Homedale, Fruitland suddenly finds themselves in unfamiliar territory. Weiser meanwhile is quietly having their best season in years. Both have a common opponent in Gooding, and theoretically, Fruitland should easily win this game, but that doesn't always happen. This game hinges on how Fruitland responds to the last 2 weeks (especially being shutout for the first time in forever). Other factors will include whether or not Fruitland goes back to throwing the football more, since their decision to go ground and pound against Homedale was a complete disaster. Fruitland 25 Weiser 19.
Homedale vs Vale- These 2 teams have somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 combined state championships. Homedale loudly announced they are legit title contenders by dominating Fruitland. Vale is decent this year, but is not a title contender in Oregon. Homedale 45-7.
Payette vs Parma- Someone is getting their first and only win of the season. Coin flip: heads equals Payette, Payette 18-14.
