Fort Hall Warriors fall to Sun Devils in first game

The Fort Hall Warriors 6th & 7th grade team lost 30 to 6 on September 6 at Sho-Ban High School.
Coach Eddy Kniffin said the boys did a lot better in the second half only giving up one touchdown and Xavier Bighair scored Fort Hall’s only touchdown.
“I was proud of the boys for the way they competed the whole game and not giving up when they were behind,” Kniffin said. “Even though there were a lot of mistakes by both players and coaches we will work them out and look to get better.”
The Warriors next game is Saturday at 9 a.m. at Franklin Middle School in Pocatello vs. the Aberdeen Dolphins. Hope to see you there.

Fort Hall Braves lost to Jaguars 26 to 6 at home

FORT HALL — The Fort Hall Braves Little League football team lost to the West Side Jaguars 26 to 6 September 6 but Coach Jamie Bache saw improvement in the team.
“I think we improved even though we only had two days of practice because of the Eastern Idaho State Fair, which is the hardest time of the football season for us,” he said.
Their defense was better but they’re still mixing up the players to find that group they need to have a solid defense. He also changed a couple of players on the offensive side.
“So hopefully we will do better this weekend,” Bache said. “I was glad to see the improvements and that is all I can ask for every week.”
The Braves play the Soda Springs Trojans at noon September 13 at Hawthorne Middle School.
