BLACKFOOT â€” Prior to Wednesday's 4A Fifth/Sixth District game with Rigby, Blackfoot boys soccer coach Liam Pope laid out three things he wanted his team to accomplish during the game.
Those three things were, to keep a clean sheet (allow no goals), put the game away early and control the tempo.
BLACKFOOT â€” For just the second time this season the Blackfoot High School volleyball team got to play a match on their home floor.
And for the second time on their home floor the Broncos got to face a state tournament team.
POCATELLO â€” For the first time since 1999 the Idaho State football team is 2-0. But the 29-3 victory Saturday over Western State Colorado University was not the offensive show many expected.
Instead the much maligned Bengals defense and continued improvement of kicker Brendon Garcia where the keys to victory.
THOMAS â€” Many people expected Friday night's match-up between the undefeated Snake River and Sugar-Salem football teams to be an offensive shootout.
But instead of an offensive show, those in attendance got a defensive battle won by the Panthers 7-6 on homecoming night at Snake River High School.
BLACKFOOT â€” When the Blackfoot and Pocatello High School boys soccer teams met in Pocatello last year it took just five minutes for the Broncos to put up five goals on the way to a 15-1 win.
THOMAS â€” Nursing a one goal lead with 10 minutes remaining in the game the Snake River LAdy Panthers knew they were going to face some pressure from visiting Teton.
What they did not know was just how much pressure they would be under in those final minutes.
BLACKFOOT â€” Three weeks ago the Blackfoot and Skyline boys soccer teams took to the pitch of the Idaho Falls Soccer Complex and for 75 plus minutes battled to a 2-2 tie.
But a late Skyline foul set up the Broncos with a penalty kick, which won the game for Blackfoot 3-2.
THOMAS â€” Quarterback Kade Keller scored on a pair of 7-yard runs and Brad Coombs had a 1-yard plunge as Snake River defeated Star Valley, Wyo., 22-19 in non-conference football on Friday.
Keller's second score came with 11:31 left in the fourth quarter. The Panther defense, led by Coombs, held off the Braves fourth times thereafter.
"Star Valley has had our number the last couple of years," said Panther coach Jeff Dalley. "Early on tonight we got some turnovers and had some momentum."
The Panther win broke a three-game win streak for the Braves in the series.
SHELLEY - Coming off of a undefeated season capped with a State Championship the Russets hosted the 4A Jerome Tigers in their first home game of the season.
After a slow start the Russets scored twenty one in the second half to cruise to a solid 28-7 victory.
IDAHO FALLS â€” With a seven point lead and a little more than two minutes remaining in the game the Blackfoot defense had Skyline in a fourth and nine situation at the Broncos 39 yard line.
