SHELLEY - In a game where defense made all the difference, the Shelley Russets stood tall defensively despite dropping a conference match to the Madison Bobcats 2-0.
"I am so pleased with the defensive effort we got from the players today," said Coach Brian Park. "To give up those two goals early in the game, and then stay in the game and match them head to head was a huge improvement for this team."
THOMAS â€” The Snake River Panther volleyball squad took to the junior high court on Thursday evening still stinging from a surprising road loss at Bear Lake the night previous.
From the outset of their match against Marsh Valley, most in attendance could tell that they were going to take their collective frustrations out on the visiting Eagles which is exactly what they did with a 3 set annihilation 25-8, 25-7, 25-13.
BLACKFOOT â€” Things just got tighter at the top of the High Country Conference girls soccer standings as the Blackfoot Lady Broncos worked their way to a 0-0 tie with the visiting Lady Bees on Thursday afternoon.
"They did a lot better job today than they did last game in terms of marking up and stuff," Blackfoot head coach Scott Stufflebeam said. "We didn't have people flowing through the defense as much and that is better. We still aren't there. We still aren't as tight marking up on the defensive side that we need to be but it was an improvement which I am glad to see."
THOMAS â€” The Snake River boys soccer team entered Wednesday's conference tilt with Marsh Valley looking for their first conference win of the season.
After 80 minutes of back and forth action, Snake River settled for a 2-2 tie with the Eagles, running their conference record to 0-2-2.
"We played a good game and we felt that we played a much stronger game than the other team so we feel that we should have won it," Snake River head coach Trevor Peterson said. "We did really well but I wish that the score was a little higher."
FIRTH â€” Sometimes it's hard to imagine the future when the present is so difficult. On Wednesday evening the Firth volleyball team suffered a 3 set loss to West Side but in the end steady improvement of the predominantly underclassmen laden roster still shined through.
"I really think that these girls will be a force," Firth head coach Carla Reeves said. "They are so young but for the next couple of years they will be dominant but it is hard for the seniors this year."
THOMAS â€” Two weeks ago the Snake River Lady Panther soccer squad traveled too Arimo for a huge conference tilt on the pitch, emerging with a 1-0 victory. On Wednesday afternoon the Lady Eagles came calling looking too even the season series but came up short as Snake River once again prevailed by that same 1-0 score.
"We had the luckiest outcome that we could have had today," Snake River head coach Randy Turpin said. "Marsh Valley outplayed us today and could have won this game 4-1."
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Bronco soccer team took to the pitch on Tuesday afternoon for their last home conference tussle of the season as they welcomed the Hillcrest Knights to town for a critical game as far as district tournament seeding is concerned.
Blackfoot erupted from the gate, taking control of the game from the opening kick as Gera Bartolo found Walter Lopez for the games opening score just 5 minutes into the match.
Where has the fall sports season gone? On the pitch area teams will be wrapping up their regular seasons in the next two weeks. Volleyball and cross country are right behind them and, to be perfectly honest, the only thing that I know for a certainty is that I have no clear idea of who will emerge from their respective leagues for a state tournament trip.
THOMAS â€” The Snake River Panther volleyball team shook off a slow start on Saturday afternoon to take down South Fremont 3-0 in a non-conference tilt.
Playing at the junior high school due to renovations in the high school gymnasium the Panthers came out sluggishly to open the first set.
The visiting Cougars on the other hand came out fast, taking an 8-2 lead before the Panthers began chipping away.
