AMERICAN FALLS â€” The Snake River Panthers advanced to the 3A fifth district title game with an 11-1 five inning win over Marsh Valley on Monday afternoon.
"We're were we want to be, the district title game," Snake River head coach James Carter said.
IDAHO FALLS- The Blackfoot Lady Broncos softball had another big win, when they faced off against the Hillcrest Knights. With the ten run rule in place Blackfoot took the win 15-4.
Two key hitters in the game were both seniors with Miraya Castaneda and Ally Smith. Castaneda started her game with a double, which was shortly followed by a three run dinger. But she wasnâ€™t finished there, she also hit a triple and gained six RBIs for the night. Smith couldnâ€™t let Castaneda have all the fun as she connected with a home run as well.
IDAHO FALLS â€” The Blackfoot Broncos took the top seeded Bonneville Bees as far as the Bees could stretch on Monday afternoon but in the end, the Broncos came up just short as they fell 4-3 in eight innings to the heavily favored Bees.
â€śI think that they did great today. We took them into extra innings,â€ť Blackfootâ€™s head coach Kenny Dahle said, â€ś I am proud of how they played. We havenâ€™t been in a game like this all season.â€ť
ARIMO â€” The Snake River Lady Panthers had their opportunity to close out the 3A fifth district tournament on Monday afternoon but standing in their way was a very hot Bear Lake team that was riding the wave of momentum from their upset victory over the top seeded Marsh Valley squad in the game just previous.
That wave of momentum came crashing down on the Lady Panthers as the Lady Bears pounded out 15 hits in a 10-4 win over Snake River to force a second championship game today.
