Playoff-bound Carey off to Richfield for finale

Panthers clinch in Sawtooth on “Senior Night”

     Sawtooth Conference North Division champion Carey High School (7-1, 4-0 league) wraps up its eight-man football regular-season slate Thursday, Oct. 28 with a 3:30 p.m. game just down the road at Richfield.

     Having allowed just two touchdowns in their last three games, the Panthers are hoping to hold down Richfield (2-5, 1-3) and take a head of steam into their first-round State 1A Division 2 playoffs game.

     Coach Lane Kirkland said Carey plans to host that game Saturday, Nov. 6 at 1 p.m. at Derrick Parke Memorial Field. And the North top-seeded Panthers have found out their opponent—the Rockland Bulldogs.

     Visiting Castleford (8-0, 5-0 league, 54.9 ppg) stretched a 22-14 halftime lead into a 44-28 Sawtooth South Division victory over Rockland (7-1, 4-1 league) last Friday. The outcome relegated Rockland to the South second seed and gave the Bulldogs their playoff ticket to Carey.

     Led by the 200 yards-plus running of Cody Quinn against Rockland, the Castleford Wolves earned the South’s seed and will host their first-round playoff game against the winner of this week’s North Division second-place game between Mackay (4-3, 3-1) and host Dietrich (5-3, 3-1).

     Since the Sawtooth gets five playoff berths this year, the third-place teams in the North and the South will clash Monday, Nov. 1 in a 24-minute, one-half game at a neutral site. Murtaugh (5-3, 4-2) has already clinched the South third-place position and will play either Mackay or Dietrich.

     If Mackay loses at Dietrich and ends up third, the Miners and Murtaugh will play their loser-out game Monday, Nov. 1 at Carey. The winner of that abbreviated third-place playoff will travel to the Boise-area runner-up team in the first round.
