Best game of the day. Crazy finish, and both teams played a very good football
game. Congrats to both teams.
Im glad Kjazz all the games To bad somebody had to loose the 4 a game
Great final game to end the season. Highland does not give up, we learned that
with a 16 point lead to start the fourth quarter at Pine View. They have some of
the best playmakers in the state. Fakahafua is a big play guy who loves to be
the go to when the game is on the line. Congratulations Highland!
What a game. There is not a kid in this state that can guard Fakahafua one on
one. Mr Football for this state no doubt in my mind.
Mtn Crest had them 4th and 10 in OT and they gave up a TD pass. That was the
difference. Mustangs simply couldn't hold them when they had to. Highland proved
they could on the final play of the game.
One of the best games of the year. Both teams played some fantastic football.
Could of easily been Mt Crests game as well. Great finish to a exciting
season!See ya all next year!
Way to represent region 6 Highland! Best region in 4a hands down.
3A WHAT!!!!!!!!!!Jessie Cordray
Wow snake bit, dejavue, whatever that dark cloud is that is hanging over MC as
well as Hurricane is thick, black and ugly, these schools just can not shake
the the monkey off there backs. Sione, Anthony & Nate you guy's
put on a show that was terrific. Yes I know you need your team mates to win this
title but I must saw you three clutch play makers are simply the state play off
stand outs, heads above the other games thank you for such an entertaining
game.Anthony Smithson story book ending to your life in Highland Ram
Black & White you are something special. As well as Sione stepping into the
starting roll after your team mate goes down. And of course last but no way the
least Nate Fakahafua simply spectacular. Thank you Boy's you are
what makes this game Great !!!
Good job Mustangs! Congrats to Highland, you played an amazing game. Kuresa
should have kept the ball for the two point conversion. If it was in his hands,
he would have scored.
Great game!! Both teams played well. But it never should have gone into
overtime....Bad calls took two touchdowns away from Highland....Mt. Crest got
lucky. But hey, Mt. Crest, don't look at it as losing a second straight state
championship game....look at it as saving money. At least you won't have to pay
overtime to your janitors to hang up another banner in your gym.
Probably the best high school game I've ever seen.. What a finish!
Claydude | 8:53 a.m.I agree that it shouldn't have gone to overtime but
more from Highland mistakes (overthrown touchdown passes, personal fouls and
other silly mistakes) than the refs. I am a fan of Nate and Highland and my son
played basketball with Nate but I don't blame the refs for the holding call...
it could have not been called but it was not wrong by any means. The touchdown
catch ruled out of bounds however, was wrong... but I had the advantage of
replay on television. Now, regarding the "janitor hanging the banner"
comment... very childish!
WeberCatBasketballFan|10:25 a.m.Regarding the "janitor hanging the
banner" comment:That is a direct quote from Mt. Crest's own fans on
the comment board this year regarding how there wasn't a team around that would
stop them.... "and their gym being filled with so many championship banners
that they have had to pay the janitors overtime to hang them all". Just
wanted to remind them of how past arrogances can sometimes come back to haunt
them. Childish? I think now in this case.
As one not tied with either program, all I can say is what a game. Amazing
clutch plays by both teams all night long. Fakahafua is an incredible talent.
Great job to both teams fantastic game!!!Highland did not do it's self any
favors on defense by all the off sides. But they did get robbed a touch down,
#7 was clearly in the end zone, ref called him out of bounds.Not only did
Highland have to beat a very good Mountain Crest team they had to beat the refs
also..Great job Rams. Shame on those refs very one sided calls in the game,and
what a heart breaker for Mountain Crest very well played game..Best State game I
Wow, Fakafua most definately showed why he is headed to the U. I
just wish MC's Pickett could have played the whole game. He has been a playmaker
all year as our #1 WR.I definately think he could have had an impact
on the outcome of the game had he been able to go in the 2nd Half.
Wow what a game! Great time to be a Highland Ram dad! Fish and Sionna are
studs. Nate is an animal. Glad to see him finally reach his potential.
Looking forward to basketball and watching Nate again. They have the potential
and talent to win state in basketball as well...all returning starters.
How are Claydude's posting not along the lines of taunting?
I Agree sun devil! The rams are also going to be tough in boys tennis and boys
soccer this year. Their tennis team took it all last year and their soccer team
has one of the best defenses in the state.
BurtReynolds, who cares about soccer and tennis. How about their gin rummy team
don't leave them out.
colby earl was the first football player to pass through highland with 7
interceptions on the season,, so i bet that kid will go far in football like
going to play college ball dont ya think???!!!!
