SHELLEY â€” The Shelley Russets were trailing at home to the 5A Idaho Falls Tigers on Wednesday evening, that was until a three ball from Chad Leckington gave the Russets a lead that they never relinquished. Of course, that deficit was 2-0 and the Leckington trey came less than a minute into the non-conference affair but in the end, that was the last of the excitement of a close game as the Russets throttled the Tigers 64-34.
