For half of a football game Friday night, Emmett looked as if its hopes of winning a third-straight Southern Idaho Conference championship could possibly be derailed early this fall. While they never trailed, the Huskies were in a battle with a Skyview team looking for its first win of the season. But a halftime recommitment to the mantra of “stop the run, run the ball” saw Emmett dominate the time of possession on two scoring drives and a kneel down drive to post a 34-24 win over the visiting Hawks.

The win moves the Huskies to 3-1 on the season and a clean start to the conference season at 1-0. They will now push pause on SIC play for a week as they head to northern California for a matchup with Tokay High of Lodi on Friday night. The game was added last week to fill an opening in the schedule created by a double-booking by Century of Pocatello.
