Salmon was third in the girls standings with 84 points. Sophomore Emily Stenlund’s 12th place time of 20:55.5 led Salmon, which also had top-20 finishes from Katie Jo Gebhardt (14th, 21:01.3), Morgan Smith (15th, 21:02.3) and Kaitlyn Burgess (17th, 21:19.2). Senior Billy Godfrey was Salmon’s lone top-20 fin- isher on the boys side, taking runner-up to Stewart in 16:22.6. Snake River’s Joseph Van Orden (fourth, 17:00.9) and Sugar-Salem’s Kaden Hamblin (12th, 17:20.8) were the area’s other top-20 boys finishers.

Bonneville coach Mike Wedman said his team con- trolled the middle of the field, but Madison didn’t need the middle to succeed. “We had a hard time containing them on the outside,” Wedman said. “We let them have the crosses and they made us pay.” Emma Christensen scored Bonneville’s lone first half goal, and Sam Atterbury found the net in the second half. Bonneville (3-7, 1-7) fin- ishes the regular season at home against Skyline on Tuesday. TETON 5, FIRTH 1: At Driggs, Teton built on a 3-1 halftime lead and rolled to a conference win over Firth. The first goal was by Maddie Chamberlin, who Teton coach Sandy Buck- staff said knocked in a left footed “laser beam” from 40 yards off a corner kick. CJ Hopkins scored in the 13th minute off a free kick and Shelyn Hansen made it 3-0 with a 17th minute goal off an assist from Bailey Hopkins. “That six minute stretch from the 11th minute to 17th minute was the best soccer we played all season,” Buckstaff said. Firth’s Fanny Hanson scored in the 37th minute to make it 3-1 at half- time. Teton’s Tsehaye Wells scored off a Crystal Moosman assist in the 58th minute and Tayler Arnold, who is the Redskins’ starting keeper, scored the final goal unassisted. “She played the entire second half as a forward,” Buckstaff said. “She’s a good athlete.” Although the Redskins got starting midfielder Jessica Naylor back from injury, Buckstaff said they lost sophomore CJ Hopkins after halftime to a broken collarbone. She collided with a player in the first half and continued to play until halftime, when she started feeling pain and then went to the hospital. Teton (7-2-3, 6-2-0) next plays Tuesday at home against South Fremont. Boys soccer SUGAR-SALEM 2, SOUTH FREMONT 0: At St. Anthony, the Diggers moved to 12-0-0 overall with a shutout conference win over South Fremont. A South Fremont own goal put Sugar-Salem up early in the first half and Josh Shirley scored the other goal in the second half. Sugar-Salem (5-0-0 conference) next plays Tuesday at home against Shelley. Volleyball MALAD TOURNAMENT: At Malad, the Dragons defeated Firth in the cham- pionship of the Malad Tournament 10-21, 22-20, 15-8. Firth cruised over Wendell 21-8, 21-9 to get to the final and maintained its hot play in the first set against Malad. But the Cougars couldn’t keep it going in. “I think we lost our focus,” Firth coach Carla Reeves said. “We have lots of things to work on in Monday’s practice.” Bailey Nelson led Firth with 53 kills and added 10 aces and six blocks. Ashley Sanders had 32 kills, Shall Taylor added 12, Kelsee Harrison had nine and Kellie Tucker had eight. Firth hosts Salmon on Tuesday for “Pink Night,” where fans are encour- aged to wear pink for brest cancer awareness.

C2 Post Register Sunday, October 5, 2014 SPORTS LOCAL ROUNDUP Skyline boys, Shelley girls tops at Mile High Classic P reP S coreboard POST REGISTER again.” Luckily for Bair, his wife, Jordon, and their three girls, a couple college connections came through. Kelly and Azzinaro had moved from Oregon to the Philadelphia Eagles. They signed Bair in 2013. Bair was healthy again, but he was relegated to the Eagles’ practice squad that season. This past offseason, Bair changed his routine. He spent the summer training with the Eagles instead of going back to St. Anthony to see his family and tending to his businesses (he owns The Zone in Rexburg and has part ownership in a St. Anthony cattle farm). The work paid off. Bair made the active roster and has played in each of Philadelphia’s first four regular season games. In week one against Jack- sonville, he blocked a field goal. “I moved right into these games and I felt like that’s where I was supposed to be,” Bair said. “You have to kind of look back at it every once and a while and think about how neat it is and how great of an opportunity it is for me and my family.” Honoring the bet One day during Bair’s freshman year at Oregon, he handed Miller a $5 bill. “This kid is so tight with money, he squeaks,” Miller said. “So it really surprised me that he coughed up $5.” Miller wasn’t surprised, however, that he won the bet he made a decade earlier. Now, Miller gets to watch his stepson make plays on Sundays instead of dragging his feet on a bucking horse. Montana State,” Kramer said. “He is a very good player. He is smart and plays within himself.” The Eagles converted on a fourth-and-2 at the Idaho State 30 with 2 minutes left to secure the win. EWU (5-1, 2-0) finished with 617 yards. Adams threw for 354, Mario Brown ran for 126 and Kupp had 132 and three TDs on eight receptions. “Their offensive line is very good and that allows their quarterback to be unbelievable,” Kramer said. Idaho State (2-3, 1-1) had 614 yards. Arias threw for 421, Xavier Finney rushed for 118 and Madison Mangum had 132 and two scores on seven catches. The Bengals also ran for 193 yards, the fourth highest total since 2007. The 614 total yards was the third most for ISU since 2004. ISU From Page C1 hitters on our team. So we do other things.” The Royals led the majors with 153 stolen bases this season, and were such a threat on the base paths that Oakland manager Bob Melvin crafted his lineup to deal with their speed. It didn’t do a whole lot of good. The Royals wound up swiping seven bases in last Tuesday’s wild-card game, matching the record for a postseason game shared by the 1907 Cubs and 1975 Reds. And all those stolen bases proved invaluable, too, in what resulted in a 9-8, 12-inning victory. “That’s one of their strengths,” Melvin said. “It affected us, no doubt about it.” It’s not lost on Angels manager Mike Scioscia, either. “It’s the way their team is built,” he said. “One of their best tools is their ability to create on the base paths, and they do it as well as anybody I’ve seen. It’s reminiscent of the Cardinals back in ‘85 — maybe not quite to that extent, but that’s how they pressure teams.” By the way, those ‘85 Cardinals? They lost to the Royals in the World Series. All of this makes sense, too. The number of home runs this year fell by nearly 500 to 4,186 comparted to last year, according to STATS, and the number of runs scored also dropped by about 500. So many teams have had to get creative scoring runs, and that’s resulted in a return to small ball. years at Kansas, and three of the last four races there overall. Each time, he had arrived with high hopes. Each time, he left in frus- tration. “We’ll see how this time goes,” said Busch, who nearly backed his Nation- wide car into the wall during practice Friday. “There have been some times where we felt like we should have been faster some places this year and haven’t quite been, so no reason to think that Kansas being one of our worst tracks we can’t go there and try to run well.” Kansas hasn’t always been Busch’s personal house of horrors. He’s raced well at the track in the Truck Series and the Nationwide Series, and even this week he has been strong in practice. He’ll roll off Sunday from the seventh starting position. But when Busch hops into his Sprint Cup car, everything goes haywire. The wall seems to jump out and bite him, chewing up a big chunk of his title hopes along the way. Or some other misfortune hits, such as getting busted for speeding on pit road. Even when he’s managed to get to the checkered flag, Busch usually isn’t close to the front. His best finish at Kansas is just seventh, and that was in 2006.

LOCAL SPORTS BRIEFLY ROYALS From Page C1 From Page C1 BAIR Ben Margot / Associated Press Philadelphia’s Brandon Bair takes on the block of San Francisco’s Joe Staley during last week’s game in Santa Clara, Calif.
POST REGISTER At Ashton, Tanner Oberhansley had a huge night, rushing for 252 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries to lead North Fremont to a 34-19 noncon- ference win over Teton on Friday night. The junior running back also delivered on defense, grabbing an interception and making a stop on fourth-and-one. “When you’ve go another back like Michael Mower (125 yards on 21 carries, one touchdown) to complement him, it makes it tough to stop one guy,” North Fremont coach Ben Lenz said. “The kids blocked well for him. Give a lot of credit to the line because we had 418 yards rushing.” North Fremont led 20-0 before Teton got on the scoreboard to make it 20-7 at halftime. The Redskins cut it to 20-19 in the third quarter before the Huskies shut them out with two touchdowns in the fourth. Stockton Dye also came up big for North Fremont with 50 yards and two TDs on six carries. North Fremont (2-3) next plays Ririe on Friday in its homecoming game. SOUTH FREMONT 56, MARSH VALLEY 28: At Arimo, South Fremont poured in 28 points in the first quarter en route to a nonconference win to extend its winning streak to five. It is the best start for the Cougars since 2011. “Our confidence has been something we’ve been missing for the last couple of years,” South Fremont coach Chad Hill said. “That confi- dence has brought a whole new physical type of play.” South Fremont led 28-6 after one quarter and 49-12 at halftime. Quarterback Junior Gonzalez completed 5 of 8 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed for 39 yards and two TDs on two carries. Blake Bartschi (one catch for 85 yards and a touch- down) and Tyler Barney (four catches, 96 yards) were his primary targets. Cody Tucker led South Fremont in rushing with 98 yards and a TD on six carries. South Fremont (5-1) plays Friday at Shelley. SUGAR-SALEM 34, JEROME 12: At Sugar City, Jared Purser returned to the lineup and sophomore Camry Ingram had a break- through game in Sugar- Salem’s nonconference win. Ingram rushed for 129 yards on 13 carries for two touchdowns. “It’s nice to get that from a sophomore,” Sugar-Salem coach Tyler Richins said. Richins said Purser, who racked up 101 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries after missing three weeks to injury, provided great lead- ership in his return. The first- year coach also praised the offensive line. “They don’t get a lot of credit,” Richins said. “We won the game because of them.” Sugar-Salem (3-2) opens conference play at home Friday against Teton. WEST JEFFERSON 42, RIRIE 7: At Terreton, the Panthers dominated the run- ning game in a conference win over Ririe. James Burtenshaw (226 yards on 15 carries, two touchdowns), Phillip Lundholm (177 yards on 12 carries, two touchdowns), Blade Albertson (84 yards on nine carries) and Hadlee Sullivan (53 yards on six car- ries, two touchdowns) all had big contributions to the win, which West Jefferson coach Jason Taylor said was full of good execution. “I think we had four runs over 60 yards,” Taylor said. “The offensive line was tak- ing care of the line of scrim- mage and they were doing their part. You get kids work- ing together like that, you get good results.” West Jefferson (2-3, 1-1) next plays Friday at home against Firth. FIRTH 35, SALMON 13: At Firth, the Cougars pulled away from a tight game for a conference win over Salmon. Salmon led 7-6 at half- time and Firth led 14-13 after three. Firth coach Keith Drake said his team respond- ed in the fourth quarter and capitalized off Salmon turn- overs. “They came out and smacked us in the mouth a little bit,” Drake said. “We had a couple turnovers and turned them into points.” Salmon coach Ken Miner said he was proud of his team’s effort, especially on the offensive line. “I thought we outphysi- caled them tonight up front,” Miner said. “We just made a couple mistakes.” Jackson Thompson led Firth with 233 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries and three receptions for 52 yards. Brodie Cate complet- ed 11 of 19 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown and also rushed for two scores. Jon Thibault led Salmon with 199 yards and two TDs on 34 carries. Firth (3-2, 1-0) plays Friday at West Jefferson while Salmon (2-3, 1-1) has a bye week. BUTTE COUNTY 41, GRACE 8: At Arco, junior running back Jeremie Hjelm racked up 232 yards and four touchdowns on 26 car- ries to lead the short-handed Pirates to a conference win over Grace. Zac Harrell left the game in the first half with an injury and Butte County was also without Gerrett Blattner and its backup quarterback and a sophomore fullback. Hjelm stepped in right away with an 83-yard kickoff return to start the game. “It kinda scares you because he’s only 160 pounds and he probably thinks he’s bigger than that,” Butte County coach Sam Thorngren said. “In the first half, Grace outplayed us. He had to be the guy.” Providing another high- light reel performance for the Pirates was Jon Isham, who evaded 11 tackles for an 80-yard punt return in the second quarter. Thorngren said that’s the first punt return for a touchdown he’s seen by a Butte County varsi- ty player in his tenure. Isham also completed 4 of 11 pass- es for 101 yards. Butte County (5-0, 2-0) plays Friday at Shoshone. OAKLEY 64, CHALLIS 0: At Oakley, Challis trailed just 8-0 after the first quarter, but Oakley scored 42 points in the second quarter to break things open. “They just blew the doors open,” Challis coach Josh Franks said. Franks said the Vikings were playing with out five starters. “This was a bad week to have that happen,” he said. Brandon Hamilton led Challis, throwing for 141 yards and rushing for 58. Zane Corrigan caught eight passes for 124 yards. Challis (2-3) returns to conference play next Friday with a home game against Grace. B y JEFF PINKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org Stan Buck knows a good thing when he sees it. That’s why the always intense eteran Blackfoot High School football coach was able to crack a smile following Friday’s 42-6 blowout of Bonneville at Thunder Stadium The Broncos were dominant from the opening play to the final kneel down, showing off their physicality up front and talent on the edges. “They’re the No. 1 4A team in the state,” Bonneville coach Fred rmstrong said. “That defense is really good, and they got their offense going tonight.” That offense showed up early, on the first play from scrimmage in fact. Sophomore quarterback Pacen Hayes faked a handoff to Damon Bodkin, waited patiently in the pocket and unleashed a high sprial that found the hands of Matt Peterson, who outran the Bonne- ille defense for a touchdown. “He throws a great ball,” Buck said of Hayes. Hayes threw two more TD passes in the first half, a 26-yarder to Si Hoskins late in the first quarter to make it 14-0 and a back-breaking 16-yard strike to Hoskins with 27.9 seconds left in the opening half. On that TD drive, Blackfoot took over on the Bonneville 47 with 58.8 seconds left following a bad punt. The drive included a key third down pass interference call on Bonneville and a 16-yard pass from Hayes to Peterson. “That touchdown before the half was big,” Armstrong said. “It’s a 14-point game going into half- time and they get that score, and that really hurt us.” Blackfoot carried that momentum into the third quarter. After stopping Bonneville’s opening drive of the second half on three plays, Taylor Pearson took the handoff on a jet sweep, beat the defense to the corner and outran the final defenders for a 47-yard score. When Hayes and Peterson hooked up on a 9-yard TD strike with 5:45 left in the third, Black- foot’s lead was 35-0. Bonneville finally found the end zone on Trevor McDonald’s 1-yard run with a minute left in the third, but it wasn’t nearly enough. “They’re just physical,” Arm- strong said of the Broncos. “You can see it. Our offense just couldn’t get it going.” It was the fifth straight impres- sive performance from the Broncos, who have beat four 5A schools (Hillcrest, Skyline and Bonneville) while earning the top spot in the statewide media poll. “We did a lot of really good things,” Buck said. “We’ve got good players, and we keep telling them that if they do the right things they we’re going to be good.” Hayes had big game despite sitting out much of the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder completed 12 of 21 passes for 217 yards — with 200 of the yards coming in the first half. Peterson was his top target, catching five passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns while also kicking six extra points. Bonneville’s offense was limited to 84 yards rushing and 99 passing. Senior quarterback Brad Smith accounted for 60 on the ground and 93 through the air. Blackfoot (5-0, 1-0) returns to 4A District 5-6 play Friday with a home game against Preston. Bon- neville (1-4, 0-2) gears up for its annual Civil War matchup against District 93 rival Hillcrest the same night at Thunder Stadium. B y MARK HIGH email@example.com THOMAS — A pair o top-five 3A teams collided Friday evening and defense was the big winner. Snake River’s defense dominated from start to finish, scoring nine points and leading the way for a 19-0 victory over the top- ranked Russets. “The scoreboard speaks to how well our defense played tonight,” Snake River head coach Jef Dalley said. “That’s eleven guys right there who are the heart and soul do this team.” The Panthers set the tone for the night’s festiv- ities a little over a minute into the contest when Damon Dance stepped in front of a Bryon Leckington pass for a 32 -yard pick six and a quick 7- 0 advantage. “We knew that Snake was one of the most phys- ical and aggressive teams in the state, at least at the 3A level, and we responded defensively pretty well but we were a little flat offen- sively and you just can’t spot good teams points,” Shelley coach Travis Hobson said. After forcing a three and out, the Panthers were on the prowl once again, even- tually scoring on a 33 -yard David Serna field goal to take a 10 -0 advantage. Snake River extended that lead to 12 -0 midway through the second quarter when a snapped punt sailed over the head of Marshall Kohler. With Kohler des- perately trying to salvage the play, the Snake River defense closed in for the safety as Brody Young pushed Kohler out of the back of the end zone. “This defense neve backed down all night,” Dalley said. “We stress being ballhawks to our guys. The D -line did a great job getting pressure and it was a lot of fun watching them tonight.” That never-back-down defensive effort was clearly on display early in the fourth quarter as Shelle threatened with a first and goal on the Panther 4 yard line. A holding call, a quarterback sack and an offensive pass interference thwarted the efforts and the Panthers had a shutout. “We just didn’t execute as well as we could,” Hobson said. “A penalty here, a little extra curricular there and then you’re facing fourth and 25 and you just aren’t going to convert fourth and 25 very often.” The Panthers followed that goal-line stand with a time-consuming drive, capped by a Sean Miller plunge over the goal line from a yard out. “We still have some things to clean up but we will grow from this and keep it going forward,” Dalley said.

a 20-14 loss at Black- foot, scoring at least 26 points while winning its last four. Running back Morgan Pyper, quarter- back Beau Crouch and a physical offensive line lead a dominating run game, while the defense has been punishing quar- terbacks all season. Skyline opened with losses to Coeur d’Alene and Blackfoot but has won its last three in impressive fashion, including a blowout win over Rigby. Both teams are 1-0 in conference, a game behind top-ranked High- land. Tonight’s winner will have the inside track to a playoff berth; the other will have little margin for error. Hillcrest 25, Skyline 18 Rigby at Madison One of the area’s best rivalries no longer has conference conse- quences with Madison in 5A and Rigby in 4A. But it still means more than any other game on the schedule to the guys who suit up. It’s also one of the rare high school matchups where the run game is just window dressing; both teams rely on the passing game to move the ball and score points. And with receivers like Josh Crane and Haydn Landon and QBs like Konner Stoneberg and Hayden Livingston, it’s easy to see why. The game could be decided by the team who pressures the quarterback the most, and that nod goes to the Bobcats. Madison 30, Rigby 28 Shelley at Snake River Travis Hobson was still hot several days after his Russets laid an egg in a loss to 5A Bonne- ville. He knew his team would have to play well to have a chance against the much-bigger Bees; instead, they played one of their worst games in years and got blown out. After a week off for spud harvest and a chance to correct what went wrong two weeks ago, it’s tough to see Shelley having another bad performance. That’s not to say it will come easy against Snake River, a team that split back-to-back games against 4A opponents Preston and Jerome the past two weeks. The Panthers will bring their best at home against the Russets, but even that won’t be enough tonight. Shelley 19, Snake River 12 Blackfoot at Bonneville Bonneville has shaken off its early-season strug- gles, beating 3A power Shelley two weeks ago and then battling Rigby for a half before the game was washed out by bad weather. Bradley Smith is finding himself in his first year as the starting quarterback, and the defense was domi- nant against the Russets. Still, Blackfoot is 4-0 and the top-ranked team in 4A. The Broncos have beaten good 5A teams in Hillcrest and Skyline, and thumped Idaho Falls and Century by a com- bined 78-14. Last week, Blackfoot held a 15-3 lead over Madison before that game was cancelled by the weather. It all adds up to another win for the Broncos. Blackfoot 24, Bonne- ville 15 South Fremont at Marsh Valley Things are looking up in St. Anthony, where the Cougars are 4-1 and playing their best football in years. Coach Chad Hill praised the play of his defense and the team’s physicality in last week’s league win over Teton. South Fremont just needs to stay focused on the task at hand against a Marsh Valley team that has been blown out in three of its five losses. South Fremont 26, Marsh Valley 6 Ririe at West Jefferson The Bulldogs pushed Salmon to the limit last week, looking for its first win of the season. Tonight’s game against West Jefferson has been circled as Ririe’s best shot at a victory. Sophomore Carter Smith stepped in at quarterback last week and breathed some life into a struggling offense, and the Bulldogs had a chance late to win. West Jefferson is coming off a tough loss at North Fremont, so momentum appears to be on the Bulldogs’ side. Something tells me the Panthers will be car- rying the momentum later tonight. West Jefferson 22, Ririe 18 Teton at North Fremont The Huskies picked up their first win of the season, stuffing West Jef- ferson 18-12 in a defen- sive struggle. But beating 3A Teton is a little too much to ask for. Teton dominated 2A Salmon a couple weeks ago, and their three losses have come to Jackson (Wyo.), Shelley and South Fremont — no shame in that. Teton 32, North Fremont 12 Jerome at Sugar-Salem The Diggers take a step up in classification, taking on a 4A Jerome tonight in Sugar City. Sugar has battled some key injuries, and will need all of its weapons against the Tigers, who lost a close one to Snake River last week. The Diggers will hang with Jerome, but they won’t have quite enough to come away with a win. Jerome 22, Sug- ar-Salem 12 Salmon at Firth Firth kicks off defense of its Nuclear Conference title, looking to maintain the dominance it’s had over its league rivals for years. Salmon has posed the biggest threat to the Cougars through the years, but the Savages don’t have the kind of team to push Firth this season. Firth 25, Salmon 8 Challis at Oakley Oakley is 4-0 and averaging 55 points a game. Challis is 2-2 and averaging 41 points a game. Unfortunately, the Viking are giving up 62 points a game — not a good number against an explosive team like the Hornets. Oakley 60, Challis 48 Grace at Butte County The Pirates have rolle through the first four games, outscoring oppo- nents 54.7-18.5. Look for that to continue tonight as Butte County looks to take complete control of the conference race. Butte County 50, Grace 22 Jeff Victor This Week’s Games The So-Called Experts (P.R.

Tigers coach Cory Steele moved Alonso, the regular keeper, into the field as a reward for his hard work. “We’ve been lacking intensity,” Steele said. “He’s been working for me in practice, we moved him into the field and he got himself a goal.” Johnny Castenada set up the goal by drawing a penalty, which Alonso con- verted in the 20th minute. The Tigers had plenty of other chances, squeezing off 14 shots, but couldn’t convert. “It was the best all- around performance we’ve had all season,” Steele said. The Tigers (6-2-3, 4-2-3) finish the regular season at Highland on Tuesday. SKYLINE 3, HIGHLAND 1: At Pocatello, the Griz- zlies continued their solid play, beating Highland in a key 5A District 5-6 match. “It’s never easy getting points in Pocatello and our away form has been pretty bad,” Skyline coach Byraun Moretz said. “But we knew we had to get three points to stay in the hunt for that bye, and we came out running good from the (Idaho Falls) game.” Sophomore Drake Ras- mussen, moved up top to replace the injured Josue Majano, gave Skyline a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute, and senior Jorge Carmona put the game away with goals in the 60th and 80th minutes. Skyline (8-3-2, 4-3-2) finishes the regular season at 7 p.m. Tuesday against Bonneville at the Idaho Falls Soccer Complex. CENTURY 2, BLACK- FOOT 1: At Blackfoot, the Broncos took a 1-0 lead in the 68th minute. But Century scored twice in the final 10 minutes to squeak out the 4A District 5-6 win. “Good teams don’t lie down,” Blackfoot coach Liam Pope said regarding Century. Andres Godinez scored Blackfoot’s lone goal in a game that starkly con- trasted the Broncos’ 2-2 tie to Preston on Tuesday. Pope was furious with his team’s performance in that game. “We actually played really well today,” Pope said. “We just didn’t get what we deserved.” Blackfoot (4-6-2, 4-2-1) hosts Rigby under the lights on Wednesday. PRESTON 1, RIGBY 0: At Rigby, Jorge Sanchez scored in the 62nd minute, lifting Preston past Rigby in 4A District 5-6 play. Sanchez ran onto a through ball from Jace Johnson and finished. SHELLEY 1, NORTH FREMONT 0: At St. Anthony, Jake Hargraves scored the game’s only goal in the 54th minute to lead Shelley past North Fremont. The game was played at South Fremont High School because the field in Ashton was flooded. “We played well,” Shelley coach Wes Stumbo said. Hargraves headed in a corner from Eddie Gon- zalez. Shelley pushed for a second goal throughout the final 30 minutes but couldn’t find the back of the net. North Fremont (5-8-1, 3-5-0) plays at Snake River on Tuesday. Shelley (7-3-0, 3-2-0) plays at Sug- ar-Salem the same day. Girls soccer SKYLINE 2, HIGHLAND 0: At the Idaho Falls Soccer Complex, goals from Megan Aumeier and Citlalli Sanchez kept the Grizzlies undefeated with a shutout win over High- land. Sanchez assisted Aumeier on a 39th minute goal and Sanchez knocked in a free kick in the 51st minute. Skyline (9-0-3, 7-0-2) next plays Tuesday at Bon- neville. SHELLEY 6, NORTH FREMONT 0: At St. Anthony, Kira Marlow and Jazmin Vega both had two goals and an assist and Shelley rolled to a 3A Dis- trict 5-6 win over North Fremont. The game was played at South Fremont because of flooding on the field in Ashton. Marlow and Eden Anderson scored in the first half while Vega (two goals), Marlow and Brit- tney Baron scored in the second half. The coaches Players of the Game were mid- fielder Gwean Marlow and defender Tymber Tenero- wicz. Shelley (11-0-1, 7-0-1) play at Sugar-Salem on Tuesday. MARSH VALLEY 0, TETON 0: At Driggs, Teton and Marsh Valley played to a scoreless nonconfer- ence draw. Teton coach Sandy Buckstaff said both teams had chances to score. “It was an evenly played game,” Buckstaff said. “I do think the defenses were dominant, but both teams had scoring opportuni- ties.” Teton (6-2-3, 4-2-0) resumes conference action Saturday at home against Firth. MADISON 4, IDAHO FALLS 1: At Rexburg, Madison rolled past Idaho Falls in a 5A District 5-6 matchup. No other details were available.

n She burned down her failing Cheyenne hotel restaurant CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a woman to eight years in prison for torching a failing restaurant she owned in a Cheyenne hotel two years ago, an act prosecutors say endangered more than 50 people staying there. U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson on Wednesday sentenced Judi Bufkin, 53, to eight years in prison on her guilty plea to a federal arson charge. He ordered her to serve three years of supervised probation and pay over $110,000 restitu- tion, mainly to an insur- ance company. Bufkin pleaded guilty to arson in the October 2012 fire at the Judi’s Cajun Kitchen restaurant, which she operated in the Central Plaza Hotel building in Cheyenne. No one was injured in the fire. Federal prosecutor Stu Healy said there were over 50 people in the down- town hotel — 49 guests and the owner and his family — when the fire started. He said Bufkin’s actions showed disregard for human life. “There were over 50 people who could have been killed in the hotel,” Healy said. “And the dis- regard that Ms. Bufkin had for those people — she might not have been thinking, ‘I don’t care what happens to these people,’ but that’s the effect.” Defense lawyer David Weiss said Bufkin didn’t intend to endanger anyone. “Ms. Bufkin make a terrible decision and committed an act where fortunately no one got hurt,” Weiss said. Weiss said Bufkin wasn’t typical of crim- inals who come through the court system. “We don’t see many first-time offenders who are 53 who have led the life that’s she’s led,” he said. “It’s a rarity in the system.” Women gets 8 years in prison for arson n They want to make sure pot grown as medicine isn’t being sold for recreation DENVER (AP) — Col- orado medical marijuana growers would face new restrictions, including how many plants they can cul- tivate for patients, under a proposal advanced Wednesday by a legislative panel. The goal, the lawmakers say, is to curb abuses in the state’s medical marijuana industry, which is taxed at a lower rate than Colorado’s new recreational pot busi- nesses. The concern from some lawmakers is that a large portion of the state’s pot market comes from caregivers, and that as a result, a “gray market” has emerged with marijuana grown legally for medical use and then illegally sold or shared. “I call it the legalized black market,” said Rep. Tim Dore, R-Elizabeth, referring to the caregiver abuse law- makers have heard about. “They’re like, ‘Hey, we grow all these plants and we’re selling these out the back door to make some money off of them.’ We need to curtail that.” Colorado voters approved medical mar- ijuana in 2000, and the system has remained after voters approved the drug for recreational use in 2012. The bill given initial approval Wednesday would require caregivers to reg- ister with the state health department and the state department of revenue. Failure to register would result in criminal penalties and they could lose their ability to be a caregiver. Caregivers would also need to go through a more stringent approval process with state health officials to grow more than six plants for each of the five patients they’re allowed to have. Right now, care- givers can potentially grow hundreds of plants through an “extended plant count” exception. The measure also seeks to ensure that medical mari- juana patients have only one caregiver instead of several. “That will severely cut down on black-market illegal grows,” said Pueblo County Commissioner Sal Pace. The proposal still faces another vote in a couple of weeks from legisla- tive leaders. If approved, it would be introduced next year to be vetted by the full Colorado Legislature.

Stenson, 78, passed away peace- fully at her home Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014. Her loved ones were by her side along with her much adored dog, Kath- erine Anne (Katie). She was born Sept. 29, 1935, in Roanoke, Va., to Colonel Fred and Mary Margaret McMan- away. Her father’s career in the military took the family to a number of military bases around the world. She met her best friend, Bunny, at Fort Dix, N.J., and spoke of all the fun she had during those years being a “debutante.” She shared many stories of Fort Missoula and growing up with her dear friend, John. Carol grad- uated from Heidelberg High School in Germany in 1953. Dr. Stenson received a degree in English at the University of Montana and a Ph.D. from the Uni- versity of Iowa. While in Missoula, Mont., she met and married Edwin Stenson on Aug. 18, 1956. They celebrated more than 55 years together. After receiving her Ph.D. in special educa- tion, Carol and Ed moved to Pocatello, where Carol taught for more than 25 years at Idaho State Uni- versity in the College of Education. During those years, Carol built the greatest legacy possible and touched thousands of lives. Dr. Stenson taught her students to use inno- vative and cutting-edge strategies to measure and maximize learning. Her students, in turn, paid Carol’s legacy forward through the differences they made in the lives of the children they taught. Many went on to become award winning teachers and administrators in special education. Carol was deeply com- passionate and lived a life of service to others. She initiated the nation- ally recognized ISU Sat- urday School program. Children with disabilities were brought to ISU by their parents and college students volunteered to provide enriching activi- ties. She also started the student chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children, which was one of the largest student chapters in the west at that time. She endowed student scholarships and provided guidance to many in career develop- ment. She also served as president of the Idaho chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children and loved the yearly con- ferences in Sun Valley, Idaho. She was a scholar at heart and published papers, articles and she co-authored three guide- books for families whose children had special needs. Carol was the 2011-2012 recipient of the Idaho Association of Special Education Admin- istrators (IASEA) Distin- guished Service Award for providing superior leadership and advocacy in special education. Carol was always the consummate teacher and continued to teach her family and friends much about dying with dignity (and humor, in her unique way) during her battle with cancer. Throughout her life, Carol made numerous friends who are all proud to have known her, learned from her, laughed with her and were saddened by her passing. Carol is survived by two brothers, Colonel James (Madeline) McManaway, USMC, of Virginia and Colonel William (Sheila) McManaway, U.S. Army, of Texas, along with nieces and nephews. She spoke lovingly and frequently about her family, even though sepa- rated by miles. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ed, her parents and two still- born children. Carol was so apprecia- tive of the loving care and support she received from family, friends, doctors, neighbors and caretakers. She especially wanted to thank Amber, EmmaLee and Michelle of Quality Home Care and her nurse, Kara, at Encompass Home Health and Hospice. She spoke often of how won- derful it was to be able to stay in her home sur- rounded by the people she loved and Katie who never left her beside. One of her greatest passions was the humane and loving treatment of pets. She and Ed rescued and adopted many dogs and cats and supported the efforts of the Pocatello Animal Shelter. If you desire to make a contri- bution in Carol’s honor, it may be sent to the Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 281, Pocatello, ID 83204. Carol and Ed created a fund called “Katie’s Old Friends” to provide sti- pends for the adoption of older pets. Carol’s wishes were that she be cremated and no funeral services held. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Wilks Funeral Home in Chubbuck. Condolences and remembrances of Dr. Stenson may be made online at www.wilksfu neralhome.com.

mission in Dublin, Ireland. He enrolled at Idaho State University when his mission concluded in 2004 but was shipped off to Iraq before the end of his first semester. Richins was a specialist for an artillery unit based in Kirkuk. He grew so accustomed to late night mortar fire hitting his base that he’d roll over in his bed and go back to sleep. He remembers soldiers screaming for medics after being hit by explosives. To cope with the constant threat of attack, he and other soldiers thought to themselves, “If it’s my day, it’s my day.” Ten years later, Richins — never one to open up — tries not to think about the bad experiences. A common reaction to war trauma is avoiding the mere thought of stressful events, according to the U.S. Department of Vet- erans Affairs. The VA says avoidance should not be the main way veteran cope (http://tinyurl.com/ pz9j5qk). Richins’ family and friends noticed remnants of Iraq when he returned to Idaho. Along with loud, unanticipated noises, he hated crowded areas. He warned people not to unexpectedly tap him on the shoulder. He had road rage. He ran stop signs. He veered toward the middle of the street (in Iraq, U.S. convoys drove in the middle of roads because improvised explo- sive devices, or IEDs, were most commonly located on the edges). For most PTSD symp- toms, Richins’ family and friends could only guess what caused them. Asking didn’t help, either. “He just won’t tell us,” says Hobson, Shelley’s current head football coach and Richins’ room- mate at ISU. Richins — a stout 5-foot-9 who “carries himself like a sergeant,” according to Dwight — will gladly discuss the excited Iraqi voters or the Iraqi children asking him for pencils and lollipops. Early in his tour, Allyson sent her son the email address belonging to Sammy Mecham (Allyson and Mecham’s mom were friends). By the end of Richins’ tour, he and Mecham emailed and talked on the phone multiple times a week. Six months after Richins returned home, the two got married. Mecham (who took Richins’ last name) was crucial to Richins’ post-war recovery, he says. But even she has been shielded from his negative memories of Iraq. “I’d hope he’d feel com- fortable to open up and talk to somebody,” Allyson says. “But if it’s something that bothers him to talk about, then I wouldn’t expect him to do that.” If Richins wants to discuss a tough war experi- ence, he’ll go to the people who understand it best: the soldiers he fought with. “I sometimes feel like we know each other better than our wives or our fam- ilies,” Richins says of his fellow soldiers. A couple of years ago, the Army reactivated Richins, but he wasn’t deployed to the Middle East, unlike several of his Army friends. This angered him for nearly 18 months. “I felt relieved for my family that I didn’t have to go,” Richins says. “But at the same time they (his Army friends) are also my family.” Richins believes going back to war could affect his family in a positive way, even though they dread the possibility. “As long as my family can continue to go to school, church, the grocery store and not feel a threat,” Richins says, “then I’m happy fighting over there.” There’s a chance Richins will be deployed in the near future. Is asking the answer? Richins says every veteran handles life after war differently. Dwight, who was an Army logistics officer in Afghanistan from 2010 to 2011, agrees. “Some veterans like to talk about (war) but don’t ever get asked. Some people are asked and don’t like to talk about it,” Dwight says. “It’s a difficult thing to know what to ask. Then you don’t ask, and it seems like you don’t care.” Richins’ family and friends don’t feel the need to probe, but they don’t want him to bottle his emotions. Those closest to Richins have dealt with a nearly impossible dilemma: should they ask more ques- tions, or should they let Richins decide if and when to open up? Either way, his silence will likely continue. “The experiences we (soldiers) had can’t be shared with anyone else,” Richins says. “I can tell people about them, but no one truly understands unless they’ve been there and experienced it.” next point to make it 25-24, but the Tigers got the next two points to stay alive. The Bees then broke a 27-27 tie to win 29-27. “We had big leads then we’d squander it away,” McMurtrey said. “We spent a lot of effort and emotion in that game.” Keck had 53 kills, 27 digs and three aces in Saturday’s games while Halle Hess had 31 kills, 16 digs and five aces. Kiley McMurtrey had 27 digs and five aces, Payton Larsen had six aces and 33 assists and Cortney McDonald had 40 assists. Idaho Falls coach Wendy Johnson praised the Tigers for battling back several times, especially from the 24-18 second set deficit. “I have to hand it to them,” Johnson said. “They did what I asked them to do during that timeout. They dug in.” Idaho Falls won its pool Friday that consisted of Rocky Mountain, Pocatello and Skyview. The Tigers played Rocky Mountain and Fruitland early Saturday. Johnson came away impressed with the Fruit- land Grizzlies, who beat Vallivue in two sets and fell to Century in a three-set semifinal. The Grizzlies were the lone 3A team in the gold bracket. “They’re a legit team,” Johnson said. “They’re ath- letic.” Taylor had 64 kills, six blocks, four aces and 40 digs for I.F. in the two-day tournament while Taylor Sutton had 28 kills, nine blocks and four digs. Kaydre Thompson had 26 kills and 10 blocks and Bailee Mills had 28 kills, 33 digs and two blocks. Johnson said the experi- ence from the tournament will only help the Tigers. “In the long run, that’s what’s gonna pay off for us,” Johnson said. “I’m pleased with how the girls played. They gave it their heart and soul.” score didn’t budge in the the final 3:29. The homecoming and Sacramento State droughts were finally doused. In what could become his best season as Idaho State’s head coach, Mike Kramer got one of his biggest wins in the orange and black. “Look at us. We just beat Sac State for home- coming,” Idaho State line- backer Mitch Beckstead said. “This victory couldn’t feel any better.” Idaho State got to first down and goal on each of its first two drives but came away with no touchdowns. The first drive resulted in a field goal. The second drive, following a Hornet fumble, resulted in an interception from Justin Arias on third and goal from the 3. “We felt like we could throw the ball down the field and run the football,” Bengals’ offensive coor- dinator Don Bailey said. “That just made us say, ‘Ok, now we just have to be more consistent within the 10 yard-line.’ ” The interception sparked a 14-play drive for the Hornets, who took a 7-3 lead after a 14-yard pass from Garrett Safron to DeAndre Clark. The Bengals drove down the field on their next drive, setting up a first and goal from the 9. Arias found KW Williams for 7 yards. Then Arias threw incomplete. Finney rushed for 1 yard on the next play, setting up fourth and goal from the 1 … or not. The referees determined it was third down, despite some justi- fied complaining by several Sacramento State coaches. Finney ran it in on the next play, giving Idaho State a 10-7 lead. “I’m just glad we scored a touchdown,” Kramer said. Ten plays into the Bengals’ next drive, Arias (30 for 42, 413 yards, two touchdowns) threw a back- wards pass to Madison Mangum, who threw a strike to a wide open Wil- liams for a 35-yard touch- down. The Bengals led 24-17 at halftime. Safron, who completed his first 18 passes, made a costly mistake on the first offensive play of the second half. The senior quarter- back inexplicably threw to an area occupied by two Bengals defenders. One of them, Cody Sorenson, intercepted the pass and returned it to the Hornets’ 3 yard-line. “It was huge,” Idaho State defensive coordinator Spencer Toone said. “He did everything right (on the interception). Cody’s a great player.” Finney (26 carries, 138 yards, three TDs) punched it in on the next play, giving the Bengals a 30-17 lead. Magnum’s first touch- down came the following quarter on an acrobatic catch in the back left corner of the end zone. The soph- omore wide receiver ha career-high 174 yards o eight catches. “He’s a guy who too his maturity and his oppor tunity and combined the to become a really goo player,” Kramer said o Mangum. Before Saturday Kramer had two confer ence wins (both agains Northern Colorado) sinc becoming Idaho State’ coach in 2011. As big a this win is, Kramer wasn’ willing to call it his best. “My best win is yet t come,” Kramer said.

Football SOUTH FREMONT 24, TETON 6: At St. Anthony, South Fremont survived two delays totaling nearly two hours with a balanced offense and a lights-out defense to take down Teton in a 3A District 6 game late Friday night. The game was delayed for an hour in the first half and for another 45 minutes in the second half, and it ended at 11:20. South Fremont built a 14-0 lead after one quarter thanks to a 17-yard TD pass from Junior Gonzalez to Tyler Barney and a 26-yard TD run from Danny Huber.

Gonzalez ran for 82 yards and threw for 171, while Coverley had 56 rushing yards and Huber fin- ished with 52. Barney led the receivers with five catches for 86 yards.

That was the same score two years ago, except that Europe was in dire need of a comeback. Now it is worried about complacency. “This job is far from fin- ished,” Europe captain Paul McGinley said. “We’re in great position, but we’ve got a lot of work to do tomorrow.” U.S. captain Tom atson walked away with a lot of questions he couldn’t answer. He was criticized for playing Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley a second time Friday, and it was even more peculiar when he didn’t they them at all Saturday. It was the first time Mickelson sat out an entire day in his two decades playing the Ryder Cup. Instead, Watson sent out Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker for a fourth straight match, even though their previous games all went to the 18th hole and ended in a draw. The fatigue was evident, particularly with Walker, who shanked a shot from the third fairway. “It may have been a mistake that I put Jimmy and Rickie out for four matches,” Watson said. “I thought they could handle it.” RYDER From Page C1 From Page C1 WAR Photo courtesy of Tyler Richins Sugar-Salem High School football coach Tyler Richins was a specialist for an artillery unit based in Kirkuk, Iraq.
ASSOCIATED PRESS ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The video of Ray Rice punching his fiancee inside a casino elevator was sent to NFL headquarters to the attention of league security chief Jeffrey Miller in April, a law enforcement official says. The NFL has repeat- edly said no one with the league saw the violent images until TMZ Sports released the video earlier this month. Miller said Thursday through an NFL spokesman that he never received the video. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t autho- rized to release details of the case, said he doesn’t know if Miller ever saw the DVD or opened the package. His only commu- nication with the NFL was a 12-second voicemail on April 9 from league offices confirming receipt of the package, in which a woman says, “You’re right. It’s ter- rible.” The official told the AP two weeks ago that he sent the video to the NFL, but asked the AP not to report that he had addressed the package to Miller. He eliminated that restriction Thursday. “Since the NFLPA and NFL have launched sepa- rate investigations into the league and the Ravens’ handling of Ray Rice’s case, I want to make a few things clear. No one from the NFL ever asked me for the inside-elevator video,” the official said Thursday. “I mailed it anonymously to Jeff Miller because he’s their head of security. I attached a note saying: ‘Ray Rice elevator video. You have to see it. It’s ter- rible.’ I provided a number for a disposable cellphone and asked for confirmation that it was received. I knew there was a possibility Mr. Miller may not get the video, but I hoped it would land in the right hands.” Miller, in London pre- paring for the Raiders-Dol- phins game Sunday, issued a statement to the AP Thursday night through an NFL spokesman. “I unequivocally deny that I received at any time a copy of the video, and I had not watched it until it was made public on September 8,” he said. Miller joined the league in 2008 as director of stra- tegic security and was pro- moted to chief security officer in April 2011. Before joining the NFL, Miller spent nearly six years as the commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police. He worked for the state police for 24 years. At the NFL, Miller’s responsibilities include overseeing investigative programs and services. He is also in charge of event security and game integ- rity. When players get arrested, the NFL’s corps of investigators rarely get involved, leaving that to local law enforcement. The league’s security operatives gather court documents and police reports avail- able to the public, but don’t ordinarily interview wit- nesses or gather evidence independently.

B y PAUL LAMBERT firstname.lastname@example.org RIGBY — “No, no. That’s it. I’m taking my boys off the field. Off the field. That’s it.” And that was it. With lightning threatening his players from all four compass direc- tions, and thunder bouncing the stands on both sides, Bonneville coach Fred Armstrong waved his players off the field. The score was 21-14 Rigby, and that was it. Rigby coach Randy Waite agreed, though his wry grin revealed the frustration of a leader who knew his troops were not ready to walk away from the battle. It was a homecoming night win for the Trojans. A win delayed 56 minutes b lightning. A win that ended before the second half started. A win that was unconventional, but satisfying in its own way. “Honestly, it didn’t go the way we planned, but we celebrated home- coming with a good win,” Rigby senior and team captain Alan Cau- dillo said. “Yeah. Kinda short, but a good win.” Rigby scored first on a 71-yard back-side screen from quarterbac Hayden Livingston to Tyrel Phillips. Phillips needed only his wheels to complete the score giving the Trojans a 7-0 lead on their first possession. Bonneville answered immediatel back when Brenden Tamayo pulled in a pass from quarterback Bradle Smith for a 44-yard touchdown on a clutch fourth down conversion for six. Bonneville scored its second fourth-down TD of the evening at 11:11 in the second quarter when Smith found Teagan Handy waltzing alone in the back of the north end zone. Rigby answered with a rushing touchdown by Phillips. But that was just the half of it. Trailing 14-13 with a wicked storm on the march, coach Waite opted to go for the 2-pont conversion — cashing in when senior Haydn Landon hit Phillips on a diversion, play-action play in the south end zone. That made the score 15-14 Rigby. Had they flopped on the two-pointer, the Bees would have led 14-13 with Mother Nature on the prowl. “We had some things we worked on this week to make adjustments like that to make sure we had some- thing we could build on,” Waite said. “It was homecoming night, and we tried to do some different things and the kids played a lot better.” Rigby put the one-point drama out of the picture soon after the lightning delay, however, pushing Drew “Bull- dozer” Zagula across the goal line fo another touchdown at the 5:30 mark. The teams went to the locke rooms but agreed to call the non- conference game settled before the second half kickoff, mutually citing weather dangers. The Bees (1-4) will next host Blackfoot at Thunder Stadium on Friday, and Rigby (3-2) will play at Madison the same night. n With Mother Nature on the prowl, Rigby and Bonneville decided to call it quits after halftime B2 Post Register Saturday, September 27, 2014 SPORTS POST REGISTER At Holt Arena, the Skyline High School football team held Century to touchdown, knocking off the Diamondbacks 28-6 on Friday to earn its third win in a row. The Grizzlies scored in every quarter and led 14-6 at halftime. David Ames ran in a 2-yard touchdown in the first quarter to put Skyline on the board. 65-yard run by quarterback Lucas Rawlings put Century on the board 40 seconds into the second quarter. Skyline quarterback Benton Mitchell found Kiva Harris for a 1-yard touchdown reception four minutes later to extend the Grizzlies lead. Mitchell also threw both touchdown passes in the second half, finding Alex Peterson for 13 yards in the third quarter and connecting with Harris for 2 yards in the fourth quarter. Mitchell finished the night 21 of 37 for 230 yards, three touch- downs and one interception and led the Grizzlies in rushing with 87 yards on 11 carries. Peterson led Skyline in receiving, making eight catches for 85 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for seven yards on four carries. Harris caught four passes for 23 yards and two touchdowns and completed one pass for 28 yards. David mes rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries for a touchdown. Skyline (3-2) resumes con- ference action Friday at home against Hillcrest. BUTTE COUNTY 79, CHALLIS 36: At Challis, the trio of Jeremie Hjelm, Zac Harrell and Schooner Collins combined to rush for more than 500 yards and eight touchdowns, and Butte County opened 1A Division I District 5-6 play with a win at Challis. “Our front line is about as good as it gets for 8-man,” Butte County coach Sam Thorngren said. “We put up our line with anyone, and our backs are good blockers, too.” The line is made up of Gerrett Blattner, Kaden Beard and Forrest Jensen, while tight ends Keller Lambson and Tyron Whitehead also helped pave the way. Hjelm led the attack, rushing 23 times for 200 yards and four touchdowns, two of them in the first quarter when the Pirates raced to a 28-0 lead. Jon Isham and Harrell also had rushing TDs in the opening 12 minutes. Harrell added 13 carries for 184 yards and two scores and he caught a 16-yard TD pass from Isham. Collins added 18 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns. Beard also had a huge game on defense from his nose-guard position. He finished with 14 tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and three quarterback pressures. Harrell added 13 tackles, Hjelm had 11 and Collins finished with eight. The Pirates (4-0, 1-0) play Grace in another conference game Friday. SALMON 36, RIRIE 29: At Ririe, Salmon scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to rally for a Nuclear Conference road win at Ririe. “I feel like we’ve made strides, but it sure would have been nice to get a win,” Ririe coach Josh Stewart said. Ririe appeared to be on its way to its first win in five tries, leading 16-8 early in the second quarter, 23-16 early in the third quarter and 29-22 late in the third. But Salmon pulled it out, get- ting a 4-yard TD run from Brett Cole and a 4-yard TD pass from Cole to Quinton Hildreth before weather delayed the game with a little more than two minutes left. Ririe had the ball and a chance to tie, but fumbled on the second play after the delay ended and Salmon was able to run out the clock. Jon Thibault had two TD runs for Salmon while Cole also had a 2-yard TD run in the second quarter. Ririe’s defense put up eight points on a safety and a 25-yard interception return for a score by Dylan Anglesey. Carter Smith tossed two TD passes — one for 14 yards to Zack Gamett and one for 60 yards to Cody Sladen. Despite the loss, Stewart was pleased with the effort. “The last two weeks we’ve kind of been manhandled, but tonight we were physical up front and moved the ball,” he said. “I’m proud of the kids for fighting.” Kobe Nelson led Ririe with 85 yards on 14 carries while Thacker finished with 72 yards on 10 car- ries. Ririe (0-5, 0-1) plays at West Jefferson next week. NORTH FREMONT 18, WEST JEFFERSON 12: At Ashton, North Fremont’s Michael Mower ran it in for a seven-yard touchdown on fourth-and-one to give the Huskies their first win of the season in their conference opener. The game was tied 6-6 at half, 12-12 after three and was delayed 45 minutes in the fourth quarter because of lightning. North Fremont coach Ben Lenz said defense was a strong point in the win. “Our first three games, we’ve been taking a beating,” Lenz said. “You throw the injuries in there, too, but we haven’t com- peted and haven’t felt like we’ve been any games. Tonight, we stayed in it long enough and the kids found a way the end.” Lenz said the Huskies are figuring out who best fits where after dealing with numerous inju- ries. Luke Nedrow moved from quarterback to running back and junior fullback/strong safety Michael Mower returned from a concussion in the season opener. Junior running back Tanner Oberhansley led the Huskies with 164 yards and a touchdown on 33 carries despite not playing at 100 percent because of a knee injury sustained last week at Malad. “We put a lot on his shoul- ders,” Lenz said. North Fremont (1-3, 1-0) next plays Friday at home against Teton. WATERSPRINGS 52, MACKAY 24: At Mackay, the Warriors outscored the Miners 44-0 in the second half en route to the their first win of the season. Daniel Buell led Watersprings with 140 yards and two touch - downs on 13 carries. Mark Mathison threw for 171 yards and two touchdowns through the air, as well, and the defense forced several turnovers, including four interceptions. “That was, I think, defining for our season that we came away from this one,” Watersprings coach John Yadon said. Mackay’s Wes Roscoe had 174 total yards (130 receiving, 45 rushing) and a touchdown catch. Watersprings (1-4, 1-1) has a bye next week. SNAKE RIVER 14, JEROME 0: At Jerome, Wyatt Vogler rushed for both touchdowns in the second half to lead the Panthers to their third win. After a scoreless first half, Vogler got Snake River on the board with a 20-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. His second touchdown was a 75-yard run with just over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Snake River (3-1) hosts Shelley next Friday. BILLINGS CHRISTIAN 42, CLARK COUNTY 22: At Dubois, Clark County fell in a nonconfer- ence game. First-year Clark County coach Michael Loscascio said Billings Christian well-coached team that portrayed good sportsmanship. “They had a really good run- ning game,” Locascio said. “They had a wide range of plays that they ran. It was actually a really good game on both sides of the ball.” Locascio said junior running back/linebacker Tresten Eddins had another big game for the Bobcats, and he also commend- ed Clark County’s lone senior, fullback/defensive end Rhett Egan. “He did a good job getting the yards that we needed, setting the tone for the rest of the team,” Locascio said.

injured by a cheap shot on the final play of the Tigers’ win over Pocatello. With a deeper roster and a better defense, Hillcrest can better overcome the loss of their signal-caller. And while the Tigers showed plent of fight in last week’s fourth-quarter comeback, they’ll need four good quarters to hang with the Knights. Hillcrest 32, I.F. 22 Skyline at Century These are good times for the Grizzlies, who are coming off impressive wins over Bonneville and Rigby. Skyline’s offense is humming along under first-year starter Benton Mitchell, but it’s the defense that’s making the difference. The Grizz D has been in sever- al-year slump, but that’s changing. Skyline is pres- suring the quarterback, stout against the run and finally getting off the field on third down. Century’s offense is no match for the Grizzlies. Skyline 35, Century 12 Bonneville at Rigby I admit it, I have no idea what to make of the Trojans. Rigby looked like the most talented team in eastern Idaho in the pre- season, featuring a roster loaded with returning talent. The Trojans con- firmed that status with a blowout win over Century in the opener, but three straight shaky perfor- mances (one-point win over I.F., blowout losses to Hillcrest and Skyline) have raised plenty of questions. The Bees answered plenty of their early-season questions by blasting 3A power Shelley last week. If that Bonneville team shows up, the Bees can hang with anyone. My guess is the Trojans will return to form tonight and get their season back on track. Rigby 29, Bonneville 23 Teton at South Fremont The folks in St. Anthony can feel pretty good about themselves after last week’s win over 2A power. The Cougars can take plenty from the win, but they have to be careful not to live in the past. If coach Chad Hill makes sure his team is focused on Teton, and not what they did last week, South Fremont should be just fine tonight. South Fremont 24, Teton 18 Snake River at Jerome Snake River was a two- point conversion away from tying 4A Preston on the road last week, so the Panthers won’t be intim- idated by a road game at a bigger school. Back-to- back games against bigger school’s have a way of wearing teams down, but Snake River has always been known for its tough- ness. Snake River 18, Jerome 14 West Jefferson at North Fremont On paper this one’s pretty simple: West Jef- ferson has played much better football this season than North Fremont. On the field it will be a tougher sell. While the Huskies are banged up, they’re used to winning league games. The Panthers are learning how to win, and tonight will provide a good lesson. West Jefferson 22, North Fremont 16 Salmon at Ririe The teams have one win between them, but Salmon has been the much more impressive team so far, last week’s blowout loss at Teton notwithstanding. Outside of the opener, Ririe has been a mess on offense, with seven points scored in the past three games. The Bulldogs might find the end zone more than that tonight, but it won’t be enough. Salmon 26, Ririe 12 Butte County at Challis Challis won a game for the ages last week, beating Grace 78-64 in the con- ference opener for both teams. The Vikings will find points much tougher to come by against Butte County, which is coming off an impressive 36-12 win over Glenns Ferry. While Challis has a few stars, Butte County has too much depth for the Vikings to overcome. Butte County 38, Challis 24 Billings Christian at Clark County It’s tough to dig up information on the Bobcats’ opponent this week, so we’ll go with what we know: Clark County is a solid 1A Division 2 team that is ready to get back in the win column this week. Clark County 44, Bill- ings Christian 38 Watersprings at Mackay The Miners aren’t back to their old state champi- onship form, but they’re a lot closer than they were last year. The talented duo of Jacob Green and Wes Roscoe and tackling machine Klancy Krenka should be enough to push Mackay past Water- springs in tonight’s league matchup.

Cameron Rusch scored off an assist from Chase Stauffer in the 22nd minute and Rydder Driggs scored off an assist from Caleb Eubanks in the 28th minute to put the Knights ahead 2-0 at halftime. Driggs added Hillcrest’s third goal in the 53rd minute off an assist from Rooney Porter. “The boys played well,” Hill- crest coach Bryan Johnston. “They possessed and passed the ball around, created a lot of opportunities. Our back five just did an excellent job once again.” Skyline coach Byraun Moretz said he had five JV players in Thursday’s game in place of injured starters and he was proud of their efforts. “I’m happy for how we played,” Moretz said. “Not to take away from Hillcrest. They’re on fire right now and playing really good soccer.” Hillcrest (8-2-2, 5-1-1) and Skyline (6-3-2, 2-3-2) both play in rivalry games Tuesday. Hill- crest plays Bonneville at Thunder Stadium while Skyline plays Idaho Falls at Ravsten Stadium. BONNEVILLE 2, IDAHO FALLS 1: At the Idaho Falls Soccer Complex, Bonneville built a 2-0 lead early in the first half and then survived a dominating second half from Idaho Falls to pull out a 5A District 5-6 victory. Miguel Salgado headed home Baylor Hancock’s corner kick in the 10th minute, then Hardy Lopez raced past two defenders and slotted a shot past the keeper in the 22nd minute. Idaho Falls cut the lead in half on a corner kick from Vasilije, an exchange student from Monte- negro in the 30th minute, but that was it for the scoring. “They controlled most of the second half,” Bonneville coach Chris Watts said. “They con- trolled the midfield and had a couple really good chances.” Watts praised the defensive play of Traigen Ledezma, Koy Bennion and Mikey Garcia. Idaho Falls coach Cory Steele said the Tigers came out flat. “We kinda underestimated Bonneville, seeing as they were in sixth place and we were in second (in the conference),” Steele said. “Just goes to show how close this confefrence really is.” Bonneville (6-4-1, 2-4-1) plays rival Hillcrest at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Thunder Stadium.

The score held into half- time. Snake River’s Sierra Payne knocked in a penalty kick in the 58th minute for the equalizer. Teton coach Sandy Buckstaff described the game as back and forth and said the Redskins had to go deep into their subs. They entered the game without two starters and lost their starting center midfielder to injury within the first few minutes. “We started the game with three subs if you count our second keeper,” Buckstaff said. “She ended up playing because we ran out of bodies.” Teton (6-1-2, 5-1-0) returns to conference action on Tuesday at Shelley.

Ron’s health had been diminishing in the last year. He plowed 28 gardens last year and only two this past spring. Ron was the first son born Jan. 24, 1933, in Rigby to Thomas Ronald Killian and Edna Mae Ball Killian. Nine years later, Jack was born, four years later, Alan, and four years after that, his sister Suzanne was born. As a young boy, he was his father’s shadow. He and his dad were very close. He was with him nearly all the time, farming, fishing and chicken hunting. He grew up working side by side with his father, shoveling ditches and farming. He attended school in Rigby. When he was a junior in high school, he started dating Marjorie Mae Scholes, who was a freshman. They were married April 2, 1952, in the Idaho Falls Temple just before Marj graduated. She has been the love of his life and his best friend. They were married for 62 years. When Ron was 20, he and his brother-in-law, David, had been called up to serve in the Army. When they were getting ready to load the bus, the com- manding officer noticed that Marjorie was holding their first son, R. Kay (Ron), the officer said “you got a baby, don’t get on that bus.” So instead, he joined the Army Reserve 449th and served from 1951 to 1957. Ron farmed with his father when they were first married. He farmed in Moses Lake, Wash., where their second son, Dean, was born. While working at the sugar factory in Rigby, their third son, Mark, was born. Later, he went to work for Wirkus Dairy in Ammon, where the final four chil- dren, Ronda, Ruth, Darren and Val, were born. In 1969, he moved his family to Shelley when he got a job working at Can- non’s Dairy. He left Can- non’s to work for Meadow Gold Dairy in Pocatello. He loaded trucks for deliv- eries when he first started and later picked up his own delivery route. He won many contests while working there. His favorite was a trip to Yellowstone for him and his wife. After Meadow Gold, he was hired at Eddy’s Bread delivering baked goods from Idaho Falls to Teton. When the Teton Dam broke, he was in Ashton; he had to spend the night there. For the next few days, he delivered bread through the whole valley for those that needed it. He had to take the back roads through Driggs and Palisades to get there. He has had many jobs in his life and has always been a hard worker. On May 10, 2014, he received the Silver Beave Award. He and Marjorie have served most their lives in the Scouting program. Ron was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he served faith- fully. His favorite calling was serving in the nursery, where all the children called him grandpa. If you found him in the hall at church, you would be rewarded with a piece of chocolate, which he always had in his pockets. Ron and Marj have been blessed by having the best neighbors. He was always willing to help when asked; he loved serving others. He was a kind and gentle man, loved by all his children and grandchildren. He will be missed greatly by all those who know and love him. Ron is survived by his wife, Marjorie; seven chil- dren, Ron (Anna) of Idaho Falls, Dean (Eni) of Shelley, Mark (Cindy) of Ammon, Ronda (Manuel) Ramirez o Idaho Falls, Ruth (Michael) Williams of Rexburg, Darren (Ruthan) of Firth and Val (Kendra) of Shelley; sister, Suzanne Burns o Idaho Falls; 22 grandchil- dren; and 23 great-grand- children.

At Rexburg, the Madison High School boys soccer team converted when it mattered and survived an onslaught of Skyline shots on goal to earn a 2-0 win in 5A District 5-6 action Tuesday night. “We had a lot of chances and it just didn’t happen for us,” Skyline coach Byraun Moretz said. Among the missed chances was a one-on-one opportunity between Grizzlies forward Jorge Carmona and Madison’s goalkeeper. Madison scored both goals in the first half, in the 12th and 22nd minutes. Skyline (6-2-2, 2-2-1) hosts Hillcrest on Tuesday. SHELLEY 2, SNAKE RIVER 0: At Shelley, the Russets pitched their first shutout of the season. “That’s our best defen- sive effort all year,” Shelley coach Wes Stumbo said. “We’ve been working all season, and it finally seemed to gel today.” Jake Hargraves scored Shelley’s first goal late in the second half, and Jordan Moulton topped off the scoring in the second half. Shelley (5-2-0, 2-2-0) travels to Aberdeen on Sat- urday. NORTH FREMONT 3, SOUTH FREMONT 1: At St. Anthony, the Huskies raced out to 3-0 halftime lead and easily held off the Cougars in the second half to earn a 3A District 5-6 win. “Defensively we played really well. We were pushing them outside,” North Fremont coach Shane Jacobson said. “The midfielders also controlled the ball really well.” Huskies senior captains Aaron Williams, Carlos Romero and Polo Saenz all played key rolls in the three goals. Williams scored in the 12th minute off an assist from Oscar Altami- rano. Romero had a free kick in the 22nd minute that ricocheted off a South Fremont defender into the net. Saenz scored on a penalty kick in the 33nd minute. North Fremont (4-6-1, 3-3-0) hosts Aberdeen on Tuesday. Girls soccer SHELLEY 3, SNAKE RIVER 0: At Shelley, the Russets stayed undefeated with a dominant 3-0 win over Snake River. “We played a really strong passing game throughout, we were very quick going to the ball and we maintained possession throughout the game,” Shelley coach Jim Gregory said. Eden Anderson and Sam Gallup were Shel- ley’s players of the game, according to Gregory, due to their deft passing and strong pursuit on defense. Abby Crandall (22nd minute), Brie Stumbo (38th) and Kira Marlow (75th) scored Shelley’s three goals. The Russets (8-0-1, 5-0-1) travel to Aberdeen on Saturday. Volleyball RIGBY 3, PRESTON 2: At Rigby, the Trojans rallied from a 2-1 deficit to earn a 25-16, 19-25, 24-26, 25-15, 15-11 win over Preston in 4A District 5-6 action. “We just had some key players step up at key moments,” Rigby coach Crystal Jensen said. “And that pushed us over the top.” Hannah Shippen led the Trojans with 15 kills and 19 digs. Olivia Gneiting added 11 kills and Macady Boyce had 39 assists. Rigby (3-1 conference) plays at the Bonneville/Hill- crest Classic this weekend. SHELLEY 3, TETON 0: At Shelley, Brooke Sorensen led a balanced attack with seven kills and two aces as Shelley topped Teton 25-12, 25-10, 25-17 in a 3A District 6 match. Sam Waite had six kills, Myah Gillespie had five kills, Alexis Thompson had four kills, a block and five aces, Kallie Brown added 26 assists, two aces and four digs while Hannah Hanson finished with 13 digs for the Russets. Shelley (14-3, 2-0) plays at Snake River on Thursday. FIRTH 3, RIRIE 0: At Ririe, Firth bounced back from a conference loss at Salmon last week to earn a 25-16, 25-15, 25-12 league win at Ririe. “I was very pleased with their performance,” Firth coach Carla Reeves said. “We suffered a loss at Salmon, and needed a little refocusing. And we came to play tonight.” Bailey Nelson led the Cougars with 13 kills, four aces and nine digs. Ashley Sanders added 10 kills and three aces, Natalie Gibson had 21 assists and Kellie Tucker chipped in eight digs for Firth. The Cougars (10-5, 2-1) host North Fremont on Thursday. SALMON 3, NORTH FREMONT 1: At Ashton, Ririe earned a Nuclear Conference win over Ririe, beating the Bulldogs 25-21, 25-18, 22-25, 25-17. Alexa Litton led North Fremont with 10 Kills and 16 digs. Cyrita Lee added nine kills and nine blocks, Kristie Hawkes had 12 blocks and 14 digs, Kaiah Bohn had seven digs and four blocks, freshman Eryn Martindale had 10 digs and Katie Harrigfeld chipped in 24 assists, 17 digs and eight kills. “We need to reduce our hitting errors to stay in a match,” North Fremont coach LeAnna Trosen said. “We still need to be a better job focusing on the little things as well.” North Fremont (1-6, 1-1) plays at Firth on Thursday. CHALLIS 3, WEST JEF- FERSON 2: At West Jef- ferson, Challis — down two sets to one — trailed in the fourth set. But the Vikings roared back to take the final two sets and defeat the Panthers 23-25, 25-13, 16-25, 25-23, 15-9. “I think they got their competitive fire back, decided they wanted to play ball,” Challis coach Debbie Sheppeard said o her players. Brielle Sheppeard had 36 kills and 13 digs. Tara Chamberlain and Savannah D’Orazio had 27 and 15 assists, respectively, and Shayanne Bradsha added six aces. Jade Skidmore had 40 assists and two kills for the Panthers, while Sierra McDonald had 11 kills and eight digs. Challis (5-2, 1-0) heads to Butte County on Thursday. West Jefferson (2-4, 0-2) also plays next on Thursday on the road against Salmon. MACKAY 3, BUTTE COUNTY 1: At Mackay, the Miners defeated Butte County 25-22, 25-22, 16-25, 27-25 in a nonconference match. “We continuously wor on passing and it is starting to pay off.” Mackay coach Bridget Severe said via email. For Mackay, Cheyan James had 25 kills and three blocks, Chelbee Rosenk- rance had 15 kills, Shelby Tillotson had 11 kills and four aces and Morgan Betzer had 47 assists. Mackay (7-2) travels to Leadore on Thursday. And when the plays were onside, the shots that fol- lowed were mostly off the mark. “I think we dominated possession-wise,” Watts said. “We just couldn’t keep the shots on frame. And the ones we did keep on frame, they weren’t really great shots.” Highland strung together a good stretch of play around the 15-minute mark, sending one shot just side and another off the post before earning a corner kick in the 19th minute. On the corner, Zach Merrill made a run to the far post, leaped high over his marker and headed home a perfectly placed cross past Bees keeper Marlon Cruz. Bonneville responded well, controlling the middle of the field and created three shots from senior Mikey Garcia that sailed high. The story was the same in the second half, with Bonneville creating more chances but getting nothing to show for it. The Bees best chance came in the 10th minute when Hardy Lopez went down in the box while being pressured by a defender. The ref didn’t make a call, and Highland escaped what could have been a penalty kick. Eventually, the near- misses led to frustration, something Watts said his Bees need to fight through. “Things are going to happen during the game that you can get upset about,” he said. “But you can’t let it eat at you the entire game. It destroys your game and it destroys the players around you. That’s something we need to work on and I think it’s something we can fix quite easily.” Watts knows the Bees will have to be at their best when the 5A District 5-6 tournament rolls around. The league is as balanced as it’s ever been, and the team that deals with frus- tration best will likely be the last one standing. “It’s a tight confer- ence,” Watts said with a smile. “Districts are going to be really interesting.” The loss dropped the Bees (5-4-1, 1-4-1) into sixth place behind the Rams (4-6-1, 2-4-0). Bon- neville returns to action Thursday with another key conference matchup against second-place Idaho Falls. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. at the Idaho Falls Socce Complex. B2 Post Register Wednesday, September 24, 2014 SPORTS doesn’t happen. But with the long weekend, we’ll be doing something Saturday rather than being in LaVell Edwards Stadium. That’s the biggest change is what Saturday will look like.” The players said they have come to expect a bye week to be much the same as other weeks. “It will change a little bit because I’m sure the practice schedule will be a little bit different, but as coaches have said this isn’t going to be a week where we are just going to sit around,” junior defensive lineman Remington Peck said. “Other teams are playing and getting better, so we’re going to have to use it to get better as well.” Fellow defensive lineman Travis Tuiloma said instead of focusing on an opponent for much of the week they can zero in on correcting their own errors. “We are mainly studying ourselves,” Tuiloma said. “We’re working on what we need to take care of as a team. We don’t want to let off the gas. As a defense, we are looking to work on our fundamentals and taking care of our assign- ments.” Even though the work will still happen, there are positives and negatives to not taking to the field for another contest. “The timing for the bye week is good,” Mendenhall said. “It could be argued that we have momentum now — which we do — but we also have things to control in terms of our team, its readiness, areas to fix, get a little bit healthier and then relaunch the next phase of the season.” The players are hoping to get a lot of the nicks and bruises healed up. “It’s coming at a good time,” Peck said. “We’ve played four physical games so it will be a time where we can regroup and get healed but also a time that we need to use to get better and prepare for Utah State.” Mendenhall said he expects a weekend break to be the big difference for his players “We’ll practice hard Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, then Friday will be basically a Monday for Utah State,” Mendenhall said. “Then they will have Saturday and Sunday off. That should be enough, I think.” For more BYU coverage, visit www.cougarblue.com. is now 10-7.
