Broncos rally for win over Diamondbacks

September 8, 2012

POCATELLO – 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 Blackfoot’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.
“That was a great play by Brock just an outstanding job,” 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 — 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. “Stop the long pass.” 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. “Putting 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.
