Eastern Idaho’s No. 1 source for prep sports

Blackfoot routs Bonneville; Sept. 9 boys soccer roundup

At Blackfoot, the Blackfoot High School boys soccer team only needed 10 players, but the outcome was about the same as their previous five matches.

Blackfoot defeated Bonneville 12-1 Saturday morning despite losing a player because of two yellow cards, head coach Liam Pope said.

Coque Velasquez and Daniel Martinez each had hat tricks in the win. Frankie Garcia, Junior Labra and Sam Reyna each had two goals.

“We started passing the ball really well,” Pope said. “We were working with a little chip on our shoulder.”

Blackfoot (6-0-0) plays at Pocatello at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

RIGBY 3, MINICO 1: At Rigby High School, the Trojans were able to get some sophomores some playing time en route to a 3-1 win over the Spartans.

Rigby coach Bart Mower said the Trojans scored in the fourth, 20th and 30th minute, outlasting the Spartans’ goal in the 18th minute.

“We had two objectives today and we did both and I was very pleased with the boys’ performances,” Mower said.

Rigby (3-4-0, 1-1-0) hosts Highland at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

HILLCREST 1, SKYLINE 1: At the Idaho Falls Soccer Complex, Hillcrest and Skyline played to a nonconference draw. No other details were available.

Hillcrest (5-0-1) plays Bonneville on Monday at 7 p.m. at Thunder Stadium while Skyline (2-2-2) hosts Preston on Monday at 7 p.m. at the Idaho Falls Soccer Complex.

ABERDEEN 2, SHELLEY 2: At Shelley High School, the Russets “fell asleep” after the first 10 minutes of their match, coach Wes Stumbo said.

After Jace Baron and Will Hanosky scored in the second and fifth minute, respectively, Stumbo said Shelley lost focus and ended Saturday’s match with Aberdeen with a nonconference draw.

“We played fine for the first 10 minutes, but then we just lost our minds,” Stumbo said.

The Russets led 2-1 at halftime, but the Tigers evened the game in the second half.

Stumbo added that half his team is battling illness, but still credited Aberdeen for battling back.

“They did a nice job coming back,” Stumbo said. “You gotta give them credit.”

Shelley (2-3-1, 1-1-0) hosts Sugar-Salem at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
