Turnovers doom Broncos in loss to Indians

January 17, 2015

POCATELLO — Oh so close.
That has to be the feeling for the Blackfoot Lady Broncos and head coach Dallan Parker after the Blackfoot's 46-40 loss to Pocatello at the Palace of Pocatello High School Friday night.
During the season the Broncos have improved markedly from the opening games of the season, Friday night Parker said before the game he would really like to win a game in the gym he used to coach in and against his little sister Carly who is a senior for the Indians.
But as close as the Broncos got in the game with the Indians Friday, mistakes took them away from a victory.
