BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos got 33 points from senior Trae Pilster as they avenged their season opening loss at Pocatello with a hard fought 64-51 home win over the Indians on Saturday evening.
"I think that the difference tonight was that we just have a lot more games under our belts and we are starting to get used to playing together," Pilster said. "As the season has gone along we continue to get better and better each week and we played really good team basketball tonight."
POCATELLO â€” The Snake River Lady Panthers may want to consider a mascot name change from the Panthers to the Pythons because on Saturday afternoons opening round 37-26 win over Bear Lake, the Ladies in Purple simply squeezed the life out of the Bears in one of the more impressive defensive efforts of the season.
"From start to finish the kids just came out and pressured them all over the court," Snake River head coach Rich Dunn said. "I don't think that they felt any fresh air all night long to breath in and it all started with our bigs down low."
