Lady Panthers punch ticket to state with OT win over American Falls

February 12, 2014

POCATELLO — All season long Snake River Lady Panthers head coach Rich Dunn has said he wanted his team to fly under the radar after winning last season's 3A state title.
To return to this season's state tournament the Panthers would have to defeat an American Falls team that came into the game with nothing to lose.
The Beavers and their fans made Highland High School feel like it was a home game, but in the end Ivy Goff and Makena Shelley each hit a pit of big shots as Snake River defeated American Falls 45-42 in overtime to win the 3A District 5 championship and earn the automatic berth to state.

February 9, 2014

BLACKFOOT — On the back of the back of the Blackfoot Lady Broncos warmup shirts is the slogan "beware of the dark horse."

But Saturday afternoon the Lady Broncos faced an elimination game against Preston a team the beat by 33 points the week before.
The game plan for Blackfoot was simple, repeat the pressure defense and hot shooting from the previous meeting and keep the season alive.
Thanks in part to Ella Alvarez Morningrose Tobey and Cassandra Clarke the Broncos plan came to fruition.
The trio combined to score 63 of the teams 75 points as Blackfoot earned a 75-60 victory.

February 8, 2014

Seahawks dominate Denver from start to finish to win Super Bowl

February 3, 2014

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — They shut down Peyton Manning and shut up their critics.
And then, in the happy celebration of the Seahawks’ first Super Bowl title in their 38-year history, defensive end Red Bryant stood up in the locker room and issued a challenge to everyone within earshot.
“This team has got to go down as one of the best defenses of all time,’’ Bryant yelled after Seattle’s 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. “It’s got to. And the best thing about it is they called us misfits, overachievers, said that nobody wanted us. But now we’re the best.’’

After slow start, Firth blows past Ririe

February 2, 2014

FIRTH — Coming into Saturday night's game with Nuclear Conference leader Firth the Ririe Bulldogs had just three wins and two of those came against Aberdeen.
So it was easy to see how the Firth faithful were expecting a blowout of the Cougars.
They did eventually leave the school after watching a blowout victory, but it did not go the way many had thought.
It took the Cougars almost five minutes of the opening quarter to score a basket and they scored just four first quarter points.
But after that opening quarter Firth head coach Scott Adams got his team going as the Cougars scored 64 points in the final three quarters to earn a 68-19 victory.
