Lapwai 52, S-R 20
RIGGINS — Lapwai, which lost narrowly to Troy earlier this month, did what no other eight-man team has done this season: defeat the 1AD2 reigning state champions.

Canyon Harper lifted the Savages within 22-20, but Lapwai answered with a 45-yard pass play, then returned a fumble for a score and iced it with another run by Williams.
Up next, Salmon River (4-1) is set to visit Garden Valley on Friday night, Sept. 30.
Wallace 48, Kamiah 6
KAMIAH — The Kubs trailed the Whitepine League newcomer Wallace 20-0 at halftime and 48-6 at the final horn last Friday night.
