CALDWELL â€“ The Blackfoot Broncos rode the right foot of senior Gerardo Bartolo all the way into the 4A State Soccer Championship game. The talented striker knocked in not one, not two, but all three Blackfoot goals in a hard fought 3-2 victory over Skyview on Friday afternoon at Caldwell High School.
â€śRight from the beginning of the game you could tell that we were all focused and ready to go,â€ť Bartolo said. â€śWe want to win a championship so badly and we came out attacking, attacking and just taking the game to them. To get three goals, my senior year, well that feels amazing.â€ť

Snake River drew first blood in the game in the eighteenth minute of play when a Payette player was called for an intentional hand ball on a ball that was heading for an open goal on a corner kick.
