Eastern Idaho’s No. 1 source for prep sports

Knights advance to 5A District 5-6 semis; Oct. 7 district soccer roundup

At McCowin Park, the Hillcrest High School girls soccer team scored both of its goals in the first half in a 2-0 win over Rigby to begin the 5A District 5-6 tournament.

The win moves the No. 4 seeded Knights (5-9-1) into Monday’s semifinal game at No. 1 seeded Madison at 4 p.m. at Madison Junior High School. Rigby’s season ends at 3-13-0.

Brynlee Christensen scored in the second minute off an Olivia McMurphy assist and McMurphy scored in stoppage time of the first half off an assist from Kalli Beck.

Hillcrest coach Danielle Francis said the wind, which had gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour Saturday in Idaho Falls, was a factor for both teams.

“The funny thing was we scored both our goals in the first half when we were playing against the wind,” Francis said. “They came out ready to play today. They did not want this to be their last game.”

TETON 7, NORTH FREMONT 0: At Driggs, Teton opened the 3A District 6 tournament with a 7-0 win over North Fremont to preserve its season Saturday.

Teton, seeded No. 3 for the tournament, led 5-0 at halftime. The Redskins got goals from Haley Janus (two), Summer Quinlan, Sofie Graupner, Hilary Rodriguez and Raelyn Horrocks. Teton coach Sandy Buckstaff said Saturday was the first time Rodriguez and Horrocks have scored this season.

Buckstaff added that North Fremont had only nine players suit up Saturday. Teton had the option to play 11 versus nine, but opted not to.

“We played nine v. nine,” Teton coach Sandy Buckstaff said. “Everybody (for Teton) played at least half the time.”

Teton (9-7) advances to play Tuesday at 4 p.m. at No. 2 seeded Shelley. North Fremont’s season ends with the loss.

FIRTH 2, SOUTH FREMONT 0: At St. Anthony, Firth began the 3A District 6 tournament with a shut out over South Fremont to preserve its season. No further details were available by deadline.

Firth advances to play Tuesday at 2 p.m. at No. 1 seeded Sugar-Salem. South Fremont’s season ended with the loss.
