Boy, oh boy.

Who had the Corner Canyon Chargers losing on the same night they had a chance to break the all-time state record for consecutive wins on their bingo card? The committee of one certainly did not.

However, that won’t change their standing in the rankings this week because they are still the favorites to win the 6A state title. And by playoff time, it stands to reason that they’ll work out the kinks in their game.

Meanwhile, Lone Peak, which beat Corner Canyon, vaults into the top five on the strength of that victory. Near the bottom of the rankings, three teams with seven-game win streaks moved up, and two teams break into the rankings behind some impressive performances.
