THOMAS — The Snake River Panthers reverted to the time tested football formula on Saturday evening, pounding the rock with seven different running backs, who amassed 221-yards of rushing between them and then turned the ball over to their stingy defense who collected a trio of turnovers, leading the Panthers to a 26-7 homecoming victory over the Savages of Salmon.
"I think that the biggest thing about tonight was just getting our confidence back as a team," Snake River head coach Jeff Dalley said. "We knew that we have a talented team and we were playing a bunch of new kids at different positions tonight and they all stepped it up big for us."
