IDAHO FALLS â€” On a cold and blustery Saturday morning two teams took to the Bonneville High School pitch looking for a berth in this weeks upcoming state tournament. Preston entered the game with the knowledge that they had beaten Blackfoot in both of their earlier meetings but as many sports pundits will tell you, beating a team three times in a row is a tough thing to do.
REXBURG â€” For the first time since the 2010 4A state championship game, the Blackfoot Broncos tasted defeat as they fell at Madison 35-14 on Friday evening.
"Like I told the kids after the game, football will expose you if you don't do the little things and do the work necessary to win," Blackfoot head coach Stan Buck said. "Madison beat us up. I was impressed with what they were able to do to us."
BLACKFOOT â€” Blackfoot High School students and community members from Blackfoot came out in force at noon on Friday to support We the People. The lines were long, the weather was beautiful and the food was delicious.
Over 250 people were served Friday.
The event was so very successful, the same event will take place next Friday, said Holly Kartchner, We the People advisor. The difference is people will get a bottle of water rather than soda pop.
BLACKFOOT â€” Butch Hulse aspired to be the mayor of Blackfoot someday, a city he loved so much; however, he lost his battle with a congenital lung disease, at the age of 65, on Oct. 5 in Salt Lake City while awaiting a lung transplant. Hundreds gathered at Hulseâ€™s funeral service at Hawker Funeral Home Friday, where he was proclaimed Honorary Mayor of the City of Blackfoot for Oct. 12, 2012.
Hulse, a Blackfoot native, was serving as a city councilman for the City of Blackfoot at the time of his death.
