BLACKFOOT â The Blackfoot Broncos hosted the Hillcrest Knights on the basketball court Wednesday evening looking to even the season series on their home court. Unfortunately, the Knights were not cooperating in that plan as they turned in a big second quarter to take a double-digit lead that they never relinquished in the 64-45 downing of the Broncos.
"Basketball is a game of runs," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "When you don't stop their run and then don't go on a run of your own it makes it very difficult to win basketball games. Hillcrest are a good team though. You can't take anything away from them."
RIGBY- They came, they saw, they conquered. The Blackfoot Broncos traveled north Wednesday night as they competed in a double duel with the Hillcrest Knights, and the Madison Bobcats. Not only did they compete, but they dominated as they swept the duel winning 69-15 against conference foe Hillcrest, and skinning the Bobcats 69-6.
