BLACKFOOT â€” With the district tournament less than a week away, every single time the Blackfoot Broncos take the field the game is important as entering Tuesday the Broncos were still fighting for the top seed.
Throw in the fact that the defending state champion Bonneville Bees were in town and the importance of the game increased ten fold.
In the dugout prior to the game the theme from the team was "Be big" as each player echoed that sentiment to each other.
And for the first time in four years the Broncos were big enough to hand the Bees a loss.
After jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the opening inning, Blackfoot had to fend off a bases loaded, one out rally from the Bees to earn a 7-6 win to hand Bonneville their first district loss in two seasons.
