POCATELLO â€“ The Century Diamondbacks had the defending 4A state champion Broncos on the ropes, up 14-13 with the ball on the Bronco 26-yard line. All of that changed in a heartbeat however as Blackfootâ€™s Brock Baguley intercepted a Shane Rominger pass in the endzone and then returned it to the 18-yard line.
That spark eventually carried the Broncos to a 34-14 victory.
â€śThat was a great play by Brock just an outstanding job,â€ť Blackfoot head coach Stan Buck said.
Eleven plays and 82 yards later the Broncos took the lead for good with a Mitch Martin 2-yard touchdown plunge a two point conversion and a 21-14 Bronco lead. On the drive Blackfoot rushed the ball on every play as the offensive line created gaping holes in the Century defensive front.
FIRTH â€” Starting the season 2-0, the Firth Cougars sought to slay the Malad Dragons. With the running forces of Mitch Orme and Connor Montgomery for the Cougars and the passing threat of Griffin Green for the Dragons, the contrasting styles took center stage. Head
Coach Keith Drake before the game was asked what he believed were the keys to winning. â€śStop the long pass.â€ť Simple yet to the point, he went on to make the points that the Malad had very large offensive tackles and that Green through the ball well. â€śPutting pressure on the QB is going to be very important to help defend with the deep pass. Firth went on to do exactly that, defend the deep pass and force Green to throw short most of the night.
BLACKFOOT â€” It was a tough job, but someone had to do it. Judges Bob Beckwith, Matt Spann, Lisa Smith and Greg Smith of Idaho Falls were selected to be judges this year's 18th Annual Homebrew Competition at the Eastern Idaho State Fair swilling over 150 entries of homemade beer, wine and mead.
This year's home Homebrew Competion was sponsored for the first time by Wild Hops Homebrewers Club out of Idaho Falls, according to David Quattlebaum, the club's president.
BLACKFOOT â€” The Springfield Park committee presented an $8,000 check to the Bingham County Commissioners Wednesday. The money will be used for playground equipment at the community's park.
All equipment at the park will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), noted committee member Herb Bohrer.
Committee members started raising funds for this project last March. They have sponsored dinners, swap meets, a fun run and a yard sale.
The yard sale raised $4,000, said Bohrer.
