West • It's tough to be too disappointed in a second-place finish in Region 2 for the Panthers, but they had their chance to win it for themselves. A couple of close losses cost West down the stretch. Now the Panthers look to make their mark in the playoffs. Stopping Riverton's rushing attack will be key. Eric Takenaka is coming off a three-touchdown performance against Taylorsville and will be sure to make an impact in the first round of the playoffs.
East • Don't get too worried about that 46-14 loss to Logan, Leopard fans. While Logan decided to play everyone in the spirit of maximizing the number of games high school athletes get to play, East held people out in hopes of staying healthy and ultimately extending its season. There are few offensive attacks as potent as Jason Cook and his arsenal of weapons. He can hand off to the bruising Liti Molisi or the quick Jewka Patetefa, throw to rangy John Fakahafua or run it himself. East is poised for a deep playoff run.
