BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Bronco baseball squad entered Tuesday's non-conference home game with the Madison Bobcats riding a 9 game winning streak. Unfortunately that streak came to and end as Madison took advantage of 6 Blackfoot fielding miscues in a 11-6 victory.
"It's really not the worst thing that happened today," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "It is a reality check for us. It should bring us back down to earth so we can refocus and get ready for Century and Bonneville."
BLACKFOOT â€” Madison Leslie hit two more bombs, including a walk off dinger in the bottom of the sixth inning of the second game as Blackfoot remained perfect in conference play with a double header sweep of Century on Tuesday evening.
"Madison is really starting to swing a big bat for us," Blackfoot head coach Matt Chavez said. "You could see it in the cage earlier in the season and I knew that it was only a matter of time before she started terrorizing pitchers. She is just so strong and our line up has no holes in it. There isn't a spot in the batting order where you can pitch around a hitter."
AMMON â€” You will have to excuse the Blackfoot Lady Broncos softball squad if they weren't just a little bit overanxious to play some ball on Monday. Due to weather and the schedule it had been ten days since they last set foot on the diamond as they traveled to Hillcrest for a make up game at the Lady Knights home field.
By days end Blackfoot doubled up the home team in a 4-2 win to run the season record to a most impressive 12-1.
SHELLEY â€” The Blackfoot Broncos ran their winning streak to nine on Saturday as they danced amidst the raindrops at Shelley High School for a 10-0 victory.
The game was a classic pitchers duel through the first five innings as Dylan Mansanarez and Tyler Bean locked horns on the bump. A lone Blackfoot run in the top of the third inning was the difference through five as the two teams headed to the sixth inning with Blackfoot leading 1-0.
POCATELLO â€” On a cold and rainy evening the fourth district high school rodeo resumed their 2013 season as they took to the indoor arena at the Bannock County Fairgrounds for rodeo three of the 12 rodeo season.
In the barrel racing it was all Timmi "Full Throttle" Hutchings as the Snake River freshman blistered the course with a winning time of 15.748. Hutchings was the only sub sixteen second ride of the evening as Cassidey Quinn and Kassidy Duffin came in second and third with times of 16.143 and 16.217.
RIVERSIDE â€” The Snake River Lady Panthers got a nine run sixth inning and Erica Ramirez worked her way out of a bases loaded jam in the seventh as the Lady Panthers won their fifth straight game with a 9-4 non-conference victory over the Malad Lady Dragons on Thursday afternoon.
"We're on a bit of a roll so we like that," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "The girls were having fun. They didn't get really down and it was definitely hard to keep up when they were hitting the ball hard and not really getting any hits out of it. Malad has a pretty good team though so we feel good about it."
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos remained undefeated in conference play on Friday afternoon as they rode the left arm of Dallan Fairchild to a 4-0 home win over Rigby.
Fairchild was in a word, magnificent as he worked a complete game 2 hit shutout. Fairchild was efficient on the bump, throwing just 90 pitches in his 7 innings of work as he sat down 12 Rigby hitters via the strike out.
BLACKFOOT â€” Bingham County foes collided on the softball diamond at Blackfoot High School on Thursday afternoon and when the dust had settled it was the Lady Broncos who stood triumphant with a 6-0 win over the Lady Russets of Shelley.
The win spoiled the return of Shelley head coach Brenda Whitworth who took to the visiting dugout on a field in which she had led the Lady Broncos to so many wins on in her tenure as the head coach of the Lady Broncos.
SHELLEY â€” County foes collided on Tuesday afternoon as the Shelley Russets welcomed the Firth Cougars to town for a day on the diamond. The day's festivities came down to the seventh inning of play as Firth broke a 3-3 tie with a run in the top of the frame, only to see that elation shift to disappointment when Shelley scored two runs in the home half for the 5-4 victory.
POCATELLO â€” It was cold. It was windy. In short. It was a typical spring baseball game in Southeastern Idaho as the Blackfoot Broncos traveled south to Pocatello for a rescheduled game from an earlier season rain out.
Blackfoot entered the game looking for a regular season sweep of the Indians and by games end, that is exactly what they got as they downed the defending 4A state champions with a 10-3 ball game.
