FORT HALL - On Thursday evening, October 9, the Lady Chiefs hosted North Gem at the Shoshone-Bannock Senior and Junior High School and went head to head with the North Gem Cowboys, starting with Junior Varsity.
During the first game the Lady Chiefs stayed even with the Cowboys and jumped ahead on the scoreboard for part of the time but would lose the first match 16-25. During the next game the Lady Chiefs kept a head of the Cowboys, however towards the end of the match North Gem began creeping up in points. The Lady Chiefs in the end lost 18-25.
After the Junior Varsity game, a special senior night presentation was held for six seniors: #23 Khailee Adakai, #25 Bree Baker, #21 Leticia Ahuatzi, #09 Shonda Dominguez, #11 Jawana Graves and #12 Alicia Madrigal.
Drum group Medicine Thunder was present to sing an honor song and each of the girls was gifted with a rose and portrait with various photos of each player along with their teammates. Families also gave senior gifts to the girls and shook their hands or gave them hugs.
After the brief presentation the Lady Chiefs Varsity took to the floor to once again play North Gem Cowboys. The Lady Chiefs paced themselves during the first game and lost 14-25.
During the second game the Lady Chiefs stayed a head for the majority of the game and did well to stay even with the Lady Cowboys, but would ultimately lose their match 16-25.

Turnovers result in Braves loss
By ROSELYNN WAHTOMY
POCATELLO – The Fort Hall Braves lost to the SE Broncos 12-40 on Saturday, October 11 at Irving Middle School.
Coach Jamie Bache said the boys did good.
“They came back at the end to score a couple of touchdowns. We just took too long to get going and we cant do that,” he said. “Our turnovers is what hurt us the most because they scored on them. Other than those it would have been a closer game.”
The Braves played their last week for the Southeast Idaho Youth Football League but will play one more game against Owyhee on November 1. The time and location details are still being decided.
