December 11, 2013

BLACKFOOT — 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.
"Usually my kids just play hard from start to finish, but not tonight," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "They were content to just concede the game and try and keep it under 30."

But in the end and just like they had done all season the defense kept Fruitland out of the end zone in the fourth quarter and Shelley won their second consecutive state championship with a 17-14 victory.
