Tonight’s Region 9 games
Cedar (3-1) at Desert Hills (2-4), 7 p.m. at the Thunderdome
Game outlook: This is a huge home game for the Thunder, pre-season favorites who have lost three straight and are 0-1 in region. DH looked lackluster vs. Dixie and Spanish Fork, but started to return to form vs. Springville, though still suffering a loss. Broadhead as a starter infused a little energy, with the scorer Hokanson coming off the bench. Cedar has played well, but it still looking for a third scorer to help out Staggs and Nielson.
Dixie (4-1) at Hurricane (0-5), 7 p.m. at the Tigers Den
Game outlook: It seems like a mismatch as the Flyers have established themselves as a viable team to compete for the region title. Hurricane, meanwhile, is still trying to find its way under new head coach Langston. But one thing we’ve learned about Region 9 over the years is to expect the unexpected. Dixie has a lot of scorers, including the rising star, Hawes. LeBaron needs to get his groove back for the Tigers to have a chance.
Pine View (6-0) at Snow Canyon (3-3), 7 p.m. at the Jungle
Broadcast: ESPN SportsRadio 106.1 FM
Game outlook: This game is full of intrigue and plot lines. Pine View’s 6-0 start is impressive, though some have questioned their strength of schedule. Snow Canyon beat up some bad teams and got beat up by some good teams. And then there’s Enterprise. The Panthers beat them at Pine View in a rout. The Warriors traveled to Enterprise and lost a close one. That’s the information, but how do we interpret it? The answer will be tonight at 7 p.m.
