Lady Russets hold off Lady Cougars

November 21, 2012

FIRTH — The Shelley Lady Russets built a ten point first quarter lead and then spent the remainder of the evening fending off a furious Firth Lady Cougar comeback attempt with a 37-34 road win in Firth on Tuesday evening.
Firth had cut the lead to just two points at 34-32 when Rachel Schiess found Bailey Nelson on the low block for a lay up to send the Firth faithful into a frenzy. Shelley's Nikki Nelson silenced the blue and sent the red crowd to their feet less than ten second later however as the senior coolly stroked a three point shot from the top of the arc, pushing the lead back out to seven at 37-32 with just over a minute remaining.

Russets mash Grizzlies in Class 3A championship game

November 17, 2012

For the Shelley Russets, there’s just something about playing the Fruitland Grizzlies in the 3A state championship game.
Shelley’s last two titles came directly at the expense of Fruitland. In 2007, the Russets prevailed 19-13, and it was a 25-14 final in 2009.
This year’s title rematch wasn’t nearly as close.
From the opening snap, Shelley held the game’s momentum and cruised to a 37-10 victory to claim the 3A state championship Friday night at Eagle High School.
It is the school’s fifth title.

Declo spoils Firth's title dreams

November 17, 2012

Declo quarterback Kai Garner scored on a pair of one-yard runs to lead the Hornets to a 22-12 victory over Firth in the Class 2A championship football game on Friday.
In a battle of unbeatens, the Hornets (12-0) took advantage of two big plays and a Firth mistake en route to their touchdowns. The Cougars (11-1) also used the big play, but struggled to sustain anything offensively all game.
"We were a little out of sync," noted Firth coach Keith Drake. That was to be expected with the loss of starting quarterback Jake Orme in the semifinals one week earlier.

Lady Panthers open season with win

November 15, 2012

THOMAS — It took a little while longer for Snake River's opening night as the start time to the game was delayed by the opening games but when the contest finally tipped off, the Lady Panthers wasted little time dismantling South Fremont as they cruised to a 57-38 opening night victory.
"Defense, defense, defense. That's what we are and every team calls it something different but to us it's Panther defense and I think that we set that tone early and often," Snake River head coach Rich Dunn said. "Last year on opening night after the first quarter it was 4-2 so tonight really shows, second year for most of these kids in the program in which we all are more on the same page. Every body participated in the summer program and even though it was South Fremont's second game of the season, they were the ones that looked rusty not us."
