It was not the start the defending 3A state champion Shelley Russets wanted, but the end result turned out to be just what the Russet faithful wanted.
Â After surrendering a 65-yard touchdown in the third play of the game the Russets outscored visiting West Jordan 28-0 to earn a 28-6 win in the second game of the Rocky Mountain Rumble Friday in Holt Arena.
After shutting down the Jaguars on the first two offensive plays of the game, West Jordan quarterback Colton Mickelson found a wide open Chandler Frischknect who beat the Shelley secondary for a 65-yard touchdown.
By DENNIS HIGH â€¨For the Morning News â€¨ST. ANTHONY- When you think of the Panthers from Snake River, you think of tough, gritty farm kids. The Panthers showed their resilience Friday night as they outlasted the Cougars of South Fremont 20-16.
The Panthers start this season returning only two starters from last yearâ€™s squad, so they expected some growing pains as they played the opener.
â€śMost of these kids havenâ€™t ever played in this situation; we have a lot of young kids, and I am really proud of the way they stepped up for us tonight,â€ť said coach Jeff Dalley.
Clayton Powell sealed Idaho Falls' 40-35 non-conference victory over Blackfoot when he intercepted Taylor Pearson's pass with 10 seconds remaining on Friday night.
Down 40-14 entering the fourth quarter, the Broncos finally got their offense untracked and scored three times to make things interesting.
With the Tigers (1-0) trying to play conservatively to protect their big lead, the Broncos (0-1) got an 11-yard touchdown run from Austin Capson, a 10-yard run from Kylar Haddon and an 11-yard pass from Pearson to Matt Peterson and three points-after-touchdowns from Gabe Botello.
BLACKFOOT â€” Working as the head maintenance man for the Eastern Idaho State Fair (EISF) may not be the most glamourous job in the world, but it is an important one and a job that Barry Adams has enjoyed for over 20 years.
As a Blackfoot native, Adams grew up enjoying the EISF. These days he sees it from quite a different perspective saying, " As maintenance manager, it's my job to make sure that everything at the fair operates smoothly and there's a lot more to it than people think. The fair couldn't operate without us [the maintenance department]," he exclaimed.
