BLACKFOOT â€” Down to their last strike, the Blackfoot Lady Broncos got a big swing from Jessica Capson as she swatted a two out, three run homer over the left field fence for a walk off 5-3 win over Skyline in game one of their double header on Tuesday evening at Blackfoot High School.
"I was nervous," Capson said. "I have two strikes with runners at second and third and all I could think was now I have to swing at everything. Fortunately she put one where I could hit it and it felt great. I was pretty excited."
