THOMAS â€” Jacoby Johnson dropped 18 points and the Snake River Panthers led from start to finish in a 68-50 non-conference home victory over South Fremont on Friday evening.
The Panthers got off to a solid start as Brad Coombs dialed long distance for the games first basket and that trey ignited a 12-2 run to open the first quarter and from there, the Panthers never looked back.
"The kids played pretty good, especially early in the game," Snake River head coach Bob Coombs said. "I thought that we did a pretty good job against their triangle offense by getting into the passing lanes and creating turnovers."
Elmer and Lucile Stecklein, owners of Elmer's in Blackfoot, donated $1,000 to the Springfield Park project on Thursday.
The Springfield Park committee started raising funds for playground equipment in the community park last March.
"We thought this was a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community since many fond memories were made in Springfield," said Lucile Stecklein.
Steckleins raised their three daughtersâ€”Beverly, MaryLou and Patriciaâ€”in the Springfield area.
At the time, they lived on Stecklein Road in Pingree and had a store in Springfield.
