MILLVILLE – The Ridgeline Riverhawks football team has been nothing short of dominant all season, winning every game by an average 30.75 point margin of victory. The team is undefeated (the only one in 4A), has the highest scoring margin of any 4A football team and the best defense of any 4A team, allowing the fewest amount of points. However, in this week’s RPI rankings from the Utah High School Activities Association the Riverhawks (8-0, 4-0) dropped from 1st to 2nd after blowing out Bear River (0-8, 0-4) 49-7. Back-to-back weeks of beating up on the lowest ranked teams in 4A hurt Ridgeline’s ranking, being displaced by Desert Hills (7-1). Ridgeline’s OWP (the average winning percentages of their opponents) is currently the second lowest in 4A.
After a strong start to the season, the Logan Grizzlies (5-3, 2-2) have suddenly hit a wall and have dropped two blowouts in a row (42-7 then 49-10). The losses have dropped the Grizzlies in the rankings to 7th overall. Green Canyon (7-1, 3-1), meanwhile, has come alive offensively over their last two games with victories of 38-7 and 49-10 and remain firmly in 3rd place. The offensive explosion has also accompanied Sky View (5-3, 3-1) over their last two outings, with victories of 42-7 and 48-0. Either the Bear River Bears or the Mountain Crest Mustangs (1-7, 0-4) will get their first Region 11 win this Friday when they face each other in Garland.
