BLACKFOOT â€” For six innings the Blackfoot Broncos out hit, out fielded and out pitched the visiting Highland Rams on Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately, the one inning in which the Rams clearly won was more than enough as they struck for 9 runs in the first inning and then coasted home, handing the Broncos a 11-5 defeat.
"I was happy with the way that the kids battled back and never quit," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "We out hit them and played pretty even with a team that swept Hillcrest and soundly at that."
