Grizzlies edge out Broncos 51-48

January 5, 2013

BLACKFOOT — The darn ball just wouldn't go through the hole. Fresh off their heartbreaking road overtime loss at Madison, the Blackfoot Broncos faced off with another 5A school on Friday night and trailing by three points with thirty seconds left in the contest the Broncos got not one, not two, but five different shots at tying the ball game. Unfortunately for the Blackfoot fans on each and everyone of those attempts, the ball just would not cooperate as the Broncos fell to Skyline 51-48.
"You can't fault the looks we got," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "We had the ball in the hands of our shooters. We couldn't have asked for a whole lot more."

Lady Panthers slay Lady Dragons 56-23

December 30, 2012

THOMAS — The Snake River Lady Panthers took to their home court for a holiday game on Saturday night and by the end of the evening, the visiting Malad Lady Dragons found no holiday spirit in the gym as the Lady Panthers envied the mercy rule with a 56-23 drubbing.
"We came out and looked a little holidayish to start the game," Snake River head coach Rich Dunn said. "But like we've talked all year long. Defense, defense, defense and in the second quarter, after we got a little sweat on our brow, we took over the game with our defense by getting in their passing lanes and taking away their screen game which led to some transition baskets on the offensive end."
