SPRING VALLEY — The wet grass field of the Wolves Den figured to be Spring Valley’s friend, but instead the Timberwolves dug a muddy hole from which they couldn’t escape.

No. 10 seed Jefferson (9-3) raced to a 28-0 lead and upset seventh-seeded Spring Valley 34-14 on Nov. 12 in a rain-drenched Class AAA high school football playoff first-round game. The Cougars advance to the quarterfinals at No. 2 Huntington (11-1) at a time and date to be determined Sunday, but Jefferson coach Craig Hunter said he favors 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Bob Sang Stadium.
