Felt’s Facts: Taking a closer look at the quarterfinals

Felt’s Facts – Week 12 2017

Last Week

The first full weekend of playoff action again emphasized the mismatches that have characterized early-round games. Of the 36 contests, 23 were decided by at least three touchdowns and only five by less than a TD.

This year, including the first-round games in 3A and 2A a couple of weeks ago, the host team has gone home happy 34 of 44 times, and, arguably, five of the 10 squads that won on the road were favored.

Perhaps the most surprising upset saw visiting Woods Cross oust traditional power Timpview, 28-24. It’s the first time the Thunderbirds have fallen in the first-round since 1999 when they lost to Fremont, also at home. Timpview is now 39-5 in home playoff contests. (Timpview also vacated its first-round victory in 2011 because of eligibility issues.)

In Class 1A, Rich failed to qualify for the semifinals for the first time since 2005, ending a streak of 11 consecutive semifinal appearances.

Quarter/Semifinal Notes

Kearns (9-2), Timpview (7-3) and Viewmont (7-3) have the best records of teams that lost in the first round. Two teams, Pleasant Grove (4-7) and Kanab (5-6), survive with losing records.

Playoff Streaks

Bingham has now advanced to the quarterfinals for 14 straight seasons, since 2004. Lone Peak is in for the 14th time in 18 seasons. Alta makes its 15th quarterfinal appearance in 21 years.

In the semifinal rounds this week, South Summit competes for the 10th time in 10 seasons. Duchesne plays in the semis for the 13th time in 16 years and Juan Diego for the eighth time in 10.

Bingham strives to win two playoff games for the sixth straight year and for the second time in school history. The Miners also captured at least two postseason wins from 2006-10. Only Skyline, which snared at least two playoff victories 13 years in a row, from 1993-2005, and Kanab, which won at least two tournament games eight straight years, from 1981-88, have longer streaks.

South Summit has enjoyed at least two playoff victories the past four seasons. The Wildcats aim to advance to the finals for a fifth consecutive year. Four other schools have accomplished that feat (Beaver, 1969-73, Duchesne, 2009-13; East, 1919-23; and Judge Memorial, 1969-73). But only two have been to the finals more consecutive seasons: Skyline, nine times from 1995-2003, and Kanab, eight times from 1981-88.

First-time Coaches Still Alive

Seven first-time coaches, Beaver’s John Marshall, Jordan’ s Kaleo Teriipaia, Lone Peak’s Bart Brockbank, Parowan’s Carter Miller, Sky View’s Danilo Robinson, Syracuse’s Mike Knight and Woods Cross’ Andrew Fresques advanced to the next round. One coach with previous experience, but who is new to his school also won last week: Eric Kjar at Corner Canyon.

Milestones

Weber (9-1) claimed its ninth straight victory, setting a school record for consecutive wins. The Warriors eclipsed their eight-game record set in 1956 (and tied two weeks ago). A victory over Lone Peak gives Weber its first double-digit win season since 1999 and the just the second in its 92-year history.

Milford (9-1) has posted nine victories for the fifth time in school history and first since 1999. The Tigers have never won more, so a triumph over Kanab on Friday rewards Milford with its first double-digit win season in its 76 years of football.

Among coaches, Duchesne’s Jerry Cowan, in his 11th season, goes for his 100th career victory.

Season Doubles

Two players have rushed for a season-high five touchdowns, but Desert Hills’ Noah Sewell has done it twice. Sewell ran for five against Jordan on Aug. 18 and against Bonneville last weekend. Juan Diego’s Zach Hoffman has also dashed for five TDs, against Judge Memorial on Aug. 25.

Several players have kicked a season-high nine extra points, but two have done it twice. Pine View’s Connor Brooksby made nine on Aug. 18 against Green Canyon and nine more last week against Tooele. Alta’s Jett Sollis hit nine on Aug. 18 against Lehi and against Cottonwood on Sept. 22.
