MERIDIAN â€“ Last year the Snake River Panthers fell to the Fruitland Grizzlies in the Idaho Center, settling for the second place trophy. This season, Snake River knocked out the Fruitland squad, advancing to todayâ€™s 3A state title game with a well played 50-37 victory over the Grizzlies.
â€śOur game plan was to come out and control the tempo because Fruitland likes to come out and get up and down the floor at nine hundred miles per hour,â€ť Snake River head coach Robert Coombs said. â€śI thought that our zone was able to slow the tempo down and get the game to our liking.â€ť
MERIDIAN â€“ The Shelley Russets slowed down a very quick Filer Wildcat team and then got a game high 19 points from sophomore sharpshooter Tyler Fredrickson as they advanced to todayâ€™s 3A state title game with a convincing 66-52 victory on Friday evening.
â€śIâ€™m so proud of my kids,â€ť Shelley head coach Dave Hadley said. â€śAll day long and deservedly so, all we heard was how good Filer was. Our kids are battlers, theyâ€™re gamers and they came out and didnâ€™t play afraid. They came out and played bold which is what we talked about in the locker room and tonight we just went out and played and Iâ€™m so happy for them.â€ť
