BLACKFOOT - When the Blackfoot Lady Broncos Soccer team took to the pitch on Thursday taking on the visiting Rigby Lady Trojans, they did so without three of their key starters.
Behind the inspired play of their defense and the addition of a pair of junior varsity call ups, the Broncos came away with an important 2-0 shut out of the Trojans, keeping their hopes of a district regular season title alive.
"Rigby came in here with their best team in many years," said Coach Scott Stufflebeam. "For the girls to step up their play and come away with a win today was huge for us."
THOMAS â€” Fresh legs prevailed at Snake River High School on Wednesday afternoon as the Snake River Lady Panthers took to the pitch after a rare 5 day rest.
The fresh legs were noticeable from the onset as Snake River dominated play throughout the contest, winning 4-0 over a game American Falls squad.
"The 2 game a week schedule is going to help us," Snake River head coach Randy Turpin said. "We played a much better team game today and the hard work that we have been putting into practice showed because the newer kids are really picking it up."
THOMAS â€” In a rough and tumble conference tilt with American Falls the Snake River Panthers earned a hard fought 1-1 draw on Wednesday evening.
"This was pretty evenly matched," Snake River head coach Trevor Peterson said. "We probably weren't as clean as we could have been but it was a rough and physical match which is how they play."
SHELLEY â€” There was a bonfire at Shelley High School on Wednesday evening as the student body warmed up their homecoming week with the age old tradition.
Unfortunately, that fire didn't carry over into the gym where the Shelley volleyball team dropped both ends of their tri-match with Rigby and Idaho Falls.
In each match the Lady Russets found themselves on the short end of a 3-0 sweep although the second match against the Idaho Falls squad was certainly a valiant effort.
