May 8, 2012

AMERICAN FALLS — After a near disastrous first inning that witnessed the Bear Lake Bears push 7 runs across the plate, Snake River head coach James Carter told his assistant coaches that they would now see just how good they really were.
Apparently, the Panthers are pretty good as they rode the right arm of Zane Stephenson as they roared back for the 9-7 victory for their second straight conference title.
"I just couldn't be prouder of the way that these kids came back," Coach Carter said. "The guys just wouldn't quit and they swung the bats really well. They played hard and they should be proud of themselves for digging deep for this one."
