RIGBY – The Blackfoot Broncos closed out their regular season with a 41-6 road win at a snowy Rigby High School on Friday night.
Playing in a heavy snowfall all evening long the Broncos built a 28 point halftime advantage and then coasted, or sledded home to finish the regular season at 8-1.
Blackfoot got on the board on just the second play from scrimmage when Alonzo Ramos hit a streaking Matt Peterson in the middle of the field for a 60 yard touchdown strike.
“It’s hard to come out and play in these conditions but you just have to fight off the cold and try hard to focus and execute as best as possible,” Ramos said. “It’s really hard to pass the ball on a night like tonight.”
Ramos did have a pair of interceptions on the night but that was more than balanced out by the Peterson touchdown and then a pretty little 36 yard rainbow that found the waiting hands of a streaking Colby Pearson in the third quarter which at the time put the Broncos up 35-0.
Ramos also added a rushing touchdown with a 14 yard scamper to paydirt in the first quarter.
Kyler Haddon added a 4 yard run in the second quarter and James Korth picked up a fumble midway through the second quarter that he returned 30 yards for a defensive touchdown as the Broncos pounded the Rigby offense all evening long.
Blackfoot (8-1, 5-0) will next play on Friday when they host Bishop Kelly for the first round of the 4A state football playoffs. Kick off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
