Alonzo Ramos and the Blackfoot offense play in the snow during Friday nights game at Rigby.
RIGBY â€“ The Blackfoot Broncos closed out their regular season with a 41-6 road win at a snowy Rigby High School on Friday night.
Playing in a heavy snowfall all evening long the Broncos built a 28 point halftime advantage and then coasted, or sledded home to finish the regular season at 8-1.
Blackfoot got on the board on just the second play from scrimmage when Alonzo Ramos hit a streaking Matt Peterson in the middle of the field for a 60 yard touchdown strike.
â€śItâ€™s hard to come out and play in these conditions but you just have to fight off the cold and try hard to focus and execute as best as possible,â€ť Ramos said. â€śItâ€™s really hard to pass the ball on a night like tonight.â€ť
Ramos did have a pair of interceptions on the night but that was more than balanced out by the Peterson touchdown and then a pretty little 36 yard rainbow that found the waiting hands of a streaking Colby Pearson in the third quarter which at the time put the Broncos up 35-0.
Ramos also added a rushing touchdown with a 14 yard scamper to paydirt in the first quarter.
Kyler Haddon added a 4 yard run in the second quarter and James Korth picked up a fumble midway through the second quarter that he returned 30 yards for a defensive touchdown as the Broncos pounded the Rigby offense all evening long.
Blackfoot (8-1, 5-0) will next play on Friday when they host Bishop Kelly for the first round of the 4A state football playoffs. Kick off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
