Believe it or not we have just finished the first month of the high school football season.
While most teams in the state are wrapping up their non-conference match-ups and preparing for the meat of their schedule, there will still be a few big non-conference match-ups later in the season.
FIRTH â€” Coltyr Brewington had a great night on Friday. First he was named Firth's Homecoming King and then he led his Cougars to a 39-20 rout of South Fremont.
SHELLEY â€” Kaden Schmitt passed for 191 yards and five touchdowns as Shelley pounded Pocatello 41-14 in non-conference play on Friday.
"I've got to give it up to our offensive line," said Schmitt. "They gave me time and gave my receivers time to get open."
BLACKFOOT â€” After a week off the Blackfoot Broncos took to the field Friday night for homecoming, it was also the 4A District 5/6 opener as the Century Diamondbacks came to town.
There were a lot of fireworks in Blackfoot Friday night, unfortunately for Bronco fans Century made more than the hometown team.
THOMAS â€”Â After an 0-0 draw at Teton on Wednesday in less than desirable playing conditions the Snake River Lady Panthers returned home Thursday for a duel with county rival Aberdeen.
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.
