The Blackfoot Broncos and the Snake River Panthers battled it out on the diamond on Friday afternoon. View photos from the first of the two games.
THOMAS â€” Behind a game winning single by Cole Rushton and a complete game pitching gem by Cash Cardona the Snake River Panthers completed the season sweep of the defending 2A state champion Malad Dragons on Thursday evening with a 2-1 victory.
"Great pitching match up," Snake River head coach James Carter said. "This is the second game the Cash has pitched for us and the second great effort from him. He threw the crap out of it today and threw a lot of strikes. He did a great job of pitching ahead of the hitters which makes them hit the pitch he wants them to hit."
Snake River 20, Soda Springs 1 (5 innings)
SODA SPRINGS â€” In as lopsided a win as one will find the Snake River Panthers crushed host Soda Springs 20-1 on the baseball diamond Wednesday evening.
"We actually were holding runners," Snake River head coach James Carter said. "We probably could have scored thirty or more runs. We swung the bats pretty good and they struggled defensively."
RIVERSIDE â€” Once again the Snake River Panthers and the Blackfoot Broncos collided on the softball diamond as the Panthers took to their home field looking for a season sweep over the Broncos.
Blackfoot was having none of that on Tuesday evening as they turned the tables on their earlier season loss to the Panthers as they pounded out 13 hits in an 8-5 road victory.
"This was big for us," Blackfoot head coach Matt Chavez said. "All week long we have come out and practiced with a ton of confidence and today they brought that confidence to the field. Our seniors came out strong and ready to play."
THOMAS â€” The Snake River Panthers turned in arguably their best overall team effort of the young season on Thursday afternoon as they downed a really good South Fremont squad 10-3 on the home diamond.
Cash Cardona turned in a fabulous performance for the Panthers as he pitched a complete game in his first outing of the season. In his seven innings of work, Cardona scattered 9 hits, struck out 11 while walking just one in the win.
"I really like what I saw from Cash today," Snake River head coach James Carter said. "He was able to come out and get the lead off guy out in every inning. He consistently threw strikes and got the outs that he needed to get."
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos opened their conference slate on Wednesday afternoon as they welcomed the Bonneville Bees to town for the first game in the home and home series.

BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Bronco tennis squad turned in a dominating performance on Wednesday afternoon as they dispatched with a Rigby Trojan squad by the final combined score of 11-1 between the boys and girls squads.
"This was a nice, decisive win today which shows just how hard we've been working," Blackfoot head coach Brint Jeffris said. "I think that this was one of those matches which gives us a brief picture of how districts should look like."
RIVERSIDE â€” The game was much more winnable than the final 13-5 score indicated on Tuesday evening as the Snake River Lady Panthers dropped their first game of the season in the eight run, extra inning defeat at the hands of a tough Teton squad.
"We should have won this game," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We get ahead in the sixth inning and then just didn't make the plays that we needed to make to get the job done. When the pressure was on, we just didn't make the plays when we needed them."
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos opened the home portion of their 2012 schedule on Friday afternoon as they swept an abbreviated double header with Century by winning game one 6-0 and then followed that up with a 2-1, three inning win in the night cap.
"The pitchers came out and did a great job of hitting their spots tonight," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "We talked about starting ahead and they each did just that which was a big key for us today."
