Upsets create 4-way tie for 1st in 5A SIC
Boise, IDAHO (KBOI-TV) - A wild night of upsets and Capitals one-point win over Borah have left four teams tied for first place with one week of the regular season to go.

Capital edged Borah 35-34 to improve to 6-2. The loss dropped the Lions to 6-2 as well.

Mountain View stayed alive for the playoffs with a 48-22 surprise drubbing of Eagle and Centennial stunned Rocky Mountain 27-24 at Patriots Field.

The final week of the regular season pits Borah at Rocky Mountain, Centennial at Capital, Eagle at Timberline (Thursday, October 25) and Mountain View at Vallivue.

Capital would win the conference title with a win and a Borah win plus an Eagle loss because the Eagles hold head-to-head tiebreakers over Borah and Mountain View.

Eagle would finish first with a win and a Borah loss.

Rocky Mountain needs to beat Borah and and Eagle loss to take the title.

The Borah Lions can take the 5A SIC title home with a win over Rocky Mountain, plus a loss by Capital.

Mountain View cannot win the conference championship, but can make the playoffs with a win combined with an Eagle loss and Capital win.

Despite its big win over Rocky Mountain Friday, Centennial has been eliminated from the playoffs.


Middleton wrapped up a conference championship with a 34-15 victory over Skyview, which has clinched the third playoff seed despite the loss. Second-place Bishop Kelly secured its playoff spot with a win over Columbia 48-21.
