SHELLEY â€” When the Shelley and Snake River girls basketball teams met last Saturday in Thomas it was a third quarter run by the home team that earned the Panthers the victory.
The teams met again in Shelley Thursday night and the outcome was much different than six days earlier.
POCATELLO â€” Snake River opened wrestling season at Highland with a bang on Wednesday. The Panthers beat Pocatello 39-37 and dropped a 50-26 decision to Highland.
BLACKFOOT â€” For a quarter the Blackfoot boys basketball team hung with 5A Madison, but things quickly fell apart in the remaining three quarters.
A 17-2 third quarter run by the Bobcats was the final nail in the Broncos coffin as Madison cruised to a 63-36 victory Tuesday night at Blackfoot High School.

THOMAS â€” On Thursday night Shelley Lady Russets junior center Brecklyn Hobbs was locked up in a physical match-up with Firth's Bailey Nelson.
Hobbs held the dangerous Nelson to zero points in the game.

IONA â€” The Blackfoot Lady Broncos kicked off 4A District 5/6 play Thursday night with a 53-45 win over Bonneville at Bonneville High School.
Ella Alvarez scored a team-high 20 points after being held in check for the last three games.
MorningRose Tobey was held in check from the field by Bonneville, but she made her presence known in other ways.
Tobey had 10 assist and nine rebounds in the game.
"We are just about where we want to be," Blackfoot head coach Merle Smith said. "We have been playing well lately and when we can get our first league win on the road, that is big for us."

Today we will dive into the boys all-county team naming the 11 best players in the county accruing to myself.
BLACKFOOT â€” Since taking over at the Morning News in May I have been thinking of ways that I could bring some things new to you the readers and some things that may be interesting to work on.
One of those ideas was to do some sort of all-area team. At my previous jobs we did one for each high school sport during the school year and naming a player if the year for each.
