POCATELLO â€“ For the fourth time in five years, the Blackfoot Broncos will be playing for the 4A state football championship. The Broncos earned that right with a thrilling, heart-stopping 34-31 victory over conference rival Hillcrest in Holt Arena on Friday.
â€śIâ€™m glad that they are out of our league next year, Iâ€™ll tell you that,â€ť Blackfoot coach Stan Buck said. â€śWe knew that they were a tough team and it always seems like these games come down to an end like this.â€ť
The end was certainly in doubt as Hillcrest came roaring back from an early 21-point deficit.
