Broncos drop opener at state tournament

Staff Writer

The Blackfoot Broncos baseball team battled long and hard to earn a berth in the 2018 4A Idaho State Baseball Tournament. The same could be said for their opponents, the Skyview Hawks out of Nampa and the show that the two teams put on Friday afternoon was classic baseball. There was good pitching, great defense and the game turned into what the great fans of baseball call an old fashioned pitcher's duel
When it was all said and done, both pitchers did exactly what their coaches wanted them to do.
They showed grit and tenacity as they dueled throughout the contest. The difference ended up being who took advantage of their offensive opportunities to score the one run that would make a difference in the contest. The final score was 2-1 in favor of Skyview, but it wasn't because the Broncos gave in and let them have the win. It was hard fought throughout and both teams had their chances.
