CAPITAL 35, POST FALLS 0

Conner Poulson was 12-of-20 for 151 yards in the air and added 107 yards on the ground as the Eagles shut out Post Falls on the road.

HOMEDALE 22, CALDWELL 21

Homedale converted a 2-point play late in the fourth quarter, and that was the difference in the Trojans’ road win over Caldwell. Nathan Leslie’s 29-yard touchdown reception from Lawsen Matteson set up the winning conversion. Matteson went 20-for-36 for 269 yards and threw three touchdowns along with three interceptions. Cameron Gabiola-Weitz returned a kickoff 80 yards for a Caldwell touchdown, and Dakota Horsewood and Lyle Kus added rushing touchdowns. Lane Sale had 105 receiving yards with a touchdown for Homedale, and Dayne Jacobs hauled in the other TD reception from Matteson.

EMMETT 34, WEISER 7

Emmett’s Wyatt Smith returned the opening kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown, and Emmett cruised to a win at Weiser. Smith accounted for three total touchdowns, and Holden Falk returned an interception 55 yards for a touchdown for Emmett. Ty Johnson led Weiser with 80 rushing yards and one TD.

FRUITLAND 25, MIDDLETON 18

With Fruitland already up 19-18, Ryan Rule’s 1-yard touchdown run in the middle of the fourth quarter lifted Fruitland to its first win under coach Ryan Tracy at home. Quarterback Jared Seamons connected with Josh Rhinehart on a 15-yard pass earlier in the fourth-quarter drive to sustain the Grizzlies’ momentum, and Fruitland gained 280 yards of total offense.

GARDEN VALLEY 46, RIMROCK 0

Leading 29-0 just before halftime, Garden Valley’s Benny Updike forced a Rimrock fumble that Kit Fairburn recovered on Rimrock’s 10-yard line. On the next play, David C. Bengoa drilled a field goal before the break, giving Garden Valley all the momentum it needed at home. Bengoa also rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

WENDELL 21, MELBA 10

Wendell's three rushing touchdowns were enough to win on the road at Melba. Melba outrushed Wendell 198-135, but couldn’t convert those yards into points. Both teams recorded a safety in the third quarter.
