AMMON â€” A big third quarter by the home standing Hillcrest Knights proved to be troublesome for the Blackfoot Broncos as they fell in their season opener 75-59 in the Dungeon on Wednesday evening.
"I thought that overall team effort, first ball game was good," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "If you remember last year at this time we had a hard time scoring in the forty's so to come out and score nearly sixty on a veteran team like we played tonight is encouraging. Like I told the kids, if we come out and score in the sixties we are going to win a lot of ballgames. Of course we saw a lot of things that we need to work on but we saw tonight that we have a lot of pieces to the puzzle and now we just need to put the puzzle together."
