With its victory over previous state No. 1 Oakley, Lost Rivers moved to the top spot in this week's 1A Division 1 state media football poll, edging Prairie by a point, with each team receiving four first-place votes.

The Pirates, a co-op team comprised of players from Mackay and Butte County, outlasted Oakley 20-14 on Friday night, running their record to 5-0. Oakley dropped to No. 3 in the poll.

The remainder of the classifications were unchanged. Sugar-Salem and North Fremont each had byes last week, but held their No. 1 spots in 3A and 2A, respectively.

Blackfoot, which took control of the 4A District 6 race with its win over Skyline, remained in fifth place.
