How the SBLive Power 10 Idaho high school football teams fared in Week 10: Giant-killer Vallivue adds another one to its hit list – No. 9 Minico

Each week, SBLive will rank the top 10 teams across the state of Idaho regardless of classification. Here’s a look at how those teams fared in games played in Week 10 of the high school football season. 

HOW THE TOP 10 FARED — OCT. 29

1. MOUNTAIN VIEW 9-0 (5A) has first-round bye

After week off, Mavericks face familiar foe – Meridian – which led much of the teams’ regular-season matchup Aug. 27, won 14-13 by Mountain View.

2. RIGBY 8-1 (5A) has first-round bye

Arguably no team needed an off week more than the reigning 5A runners-up, who were down key regulars in the season-closing loss to Madison.

3. ROCKY MOUNTAIN 7-2 (5A) has first-round bye

Will face Highland for third time in past year in 5A quarterfinal rematch; Grizzlies defense has given up just 20 points in previous two encounters.

4. EAGLE 8-2 (5A) beats Borah, 31-15

Defense gets three turnovers and enough offense. Next up is Coeur d’Alene, a team the Mustangs have beaten in past two playoff meetings (2011, 2016).

5. HIGHLAND 8-2 (5A) beats Skyview, 45-28

QB Jack Whitmer (five total TDs) allows Rams to pull away late; 5A champion Rocky Mountain up next for fourth time in past five state-playoff trips.

6. COEUR D’ALENE 6-2 (5A) has first-round bye

Unlike the other bye-week benefactors, the Vikings actually had to play this week – winning a 5A Inland Empire mini-tiebreaker; Eagle up next.

7. MERIDIAN 7-3 (5A) beats Madison, 47-28

Warriors score touchdowns on first five possessions – and still need fourth-down stop in final quarter to keep lead. Is start of “Revenge Tour: 2021” next?

8. HOMEDALE 9-0 (3A) has first-round bye

What makes this year different? Well, Trojans are overall top seed in 3A, and reigning three-time state runner-up isn’t chasing Sugar-Salem anymore.

9. MINICO 9-1 (4A) loses to Vallivue, 28-12

Bad time for the last remaining 4A undefeated squad to take its first loss. Big play was giving up fourth-and-goal touchdown from own 27 late in third quarter.

10. WEST SIDE 8-0 (2A) has first-round bye

Expanding its 29-game winning streak – and getting on track for a third consecutive 2A title will have to wait another week.
