ST. GEORGE — Region 9 GameDay is here, with Andy Griffin bringing you insight, breaking down the Friday fight and offering all the highlights from Region 9 in 2017.
Round 1 is in the books, and three Region 9 teams are still standing. In fact, Dixie Pine View and Desert Hills all won by more than 20 points. But now the real tests begin as the competition gets tougher. All three local teams are one win away from the state semifinals and a trip to Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah.
Dixie, Pine View and Desert Hills march onto the gridiron tonight and represent for southern Utah. So what are the odds that all three St. George schools survive?
On the show today, brought to you by Revere Health, Andy breaks down the matchups and gives the lowdown in what to expect as the elite eight get whittled down to 4A’s final four.
