Uintah at Pine View, 7 p.m.
The Panthers have all the momentum this week after a 34-7 win over Judge Memorial in their opener. But they’ll have to stop Uintah quarterback Kyle Henderson who torched Snow Canyon’s defense for 284 yards and two touchdowns last week. PV’s defense has confidence, though, after limiting Judge to just 91 passing yards and two interceptions last week. The game will be broadcast live on Sports Radio 97.7 FM
Salem Hills at Desert Hills, 7 p.m.
After a close loss to 5A Jordan, Desert Hills is hoping to get a coveted win over a higher enrollment school when the Thunder host Salem Hills. The Skyhawks beat Delta 24-0 last week but were vulnerable against the run. Desert Hills’ offense struggled against Jordan, but its defense did better than most in containing the high-powered Beetdiggers offense. Nephi Sewell is expected to miss 2-3 more weeks with a broken left arm and Ryan Hoppie is expected to return in a week from a collarbone injury.
Dixie at Lone Peak, 7 p.m.
The schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Dixie Flyers as they go on the road to face Lone Peak. The Knights fell in the 5A state championship game last year and come into Friday’s game undefeated after an impressive 31-13 victory over Bountiful. The Flyers will likely rely on Hobbs Nyberg who ran for 75 yards and caught four passes for 101 yards last week against Springville.
Enterprise at Parowan, 7 p.m.
Both squads are 1-0 and scored 19 points in a win last week. Enterprise has a multi-faceted rushing attack centered on Jayson Holt and Caleb Koopmans. Jacob Matheson is Parowan’s key player on offense after he threw and ran for a touchdown last week. The key for both teams, though, will be to stop the run.
Snow Canyon vs. Shelley (Idaho), 8:15 p.m. at Idaho State
Snow Canyon hits the road for an even longer road trip than Vernal as the Warriors travel to Pocatello to face the Shelley Russets. SC running back Chris Poulsen was virtually unstoppable as he ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns last week. This will be the Russets’ season opener after going 5-5 last season. They are senior-heavy and return several starters on offense and defense. Austin Staheli will start at quarterback in place of Matt Kitchen, who has a minor MCL strain to his knee. The game will be streamed live on Idahosports.com, and broadcast live on 890 KDXU-AM radio.
Cedar at Virgin Valley (Mesquite, Nev.), 7 p.m.
The Redmen will be looking for their first win of the season when they travel to Mesquite on Friday. Cedar routed Virgin Valley, 41-7, last season behind a huge game from quarterback Mason Fakahua, who ran for 205 yards and two touchdowns and threw for another 123 yards in last year’s contest. Cedar is coming off a 35-21 season-opening loss to Provo. In the loss, the Redmen offense put up 495 of total offense.
Hurricane at Canyon View, 7 p.m.
The Tigers and Falcons will both be looking for their first win of the young season when they meet in Cedar City. Hurricane lost in heartbreaking fashion last week, falling to Skyline in overtime, 28-27. The Tigers tied the game on a 70-yard touchdown on the final play of regulation. Canyon View’s inexperienced team will attempt to bounce back from a 41-14 setback at Beaver.
