The Borah defense forced three turnovers, including two interception returns for touchdowns by Logan Miller and Innocent Ndayiragije.

Third-year starting quarterback Wyatt Storer led Skyview’s attack with 23 completions for 170 yards, but he threw two picks and failed to get the Hawks in the end zone. Tyler Crowe and Cade Salois scored on runs of 9 and 4 yards, respectively.

Capital 56, Timberline 27
