THOMAS â€” Snake River head coach Rich Dunn refers to his yearly Christmas break game as the holiday ham game and for good reason.
As most teams in the area enjoy a few weeks away from playing games and just practice, the Panthers play at least one game during the break to keep in basketball mode prior to the second half of the season beginning.
In years past it took the Panthers a quarter or two or sometimes the entire game to get into the flow of the game.
Tuesday night against visiting Malad it took just two quarters for the Panthers to earn a huge 56-33 win at Snake River High School.
BLACKFOOT â€” I hope the Christmas holiday was a good one for all of you readers out there, it was definitely a memorable one for my family and I.
It has been awhile since I released the All-Bingham County soccer teams and over the next few days we will wrap up the all-county teams for the fall sports.
Today we will take a look at the all-county volleyball team.
The team is made up of the top players in the county based on the performances I saw during the season.
THOMAS â€” Maybe it was the fans sarcastic applause after the Panthers first points of the game after 11:30 of being held scoreless.
Or maybe it was the no doubt fiery halftime speech from head coach Bob Coombs, but something got into the Snake River Panthers in the second half against Sugar-Salem Tuesday night.
After being held scoreless in the opening quarter and trailing 21-1 with 4:31 left in the game the Panthers rallied in the second half cutting the deficit to as little as seven points.
THOMAS â€” With three minutes to go in the game the Snake River Lady Panthers held a 46-39 lead over visiting Kimberly after a 10-0 run by Snake River.
But just as on Friday night against Soda Springs the Panthers had a mental let down and Kimberly responded.
The Lady Dawgs went on a 6-0 run of their won to pull within one point with less than a minute to go in regulation.
But Snake River got three huge free throws from Maegan Peace and Sari Steadman to earn a 50-47 win at Snake River High School Saturday night.
BLACKFOOT â€” The positives for the Blackfoot Broncos have been few and far between in the early part of the 2014-15 basketball season.
It has been a lot of two steps forward and one step backward week after week.
Friday night the Broncos looked for their first win of the season as they opened 4A District 5/6 play hosting the Indians of Pocatello.
And for the opening 16 minutes the Broncos looked as if the first win of the season would come against the Indians as Si Hoskins, Taylor Pearson and Matt Peterson were aggressive driving to the rim.
BLACKFOOT â€” With less than a minute to go the Blackfoot Lady Broncos haled a 32-21 lead over visiting Preston.
But the Broncos first win of the season was snatched the away from the Broncos when the Indians Megan Porter nailed the game-winning three pointer as time expired to give Preston a 35-32 win Thursday night at Blackfoot High School.
