Kimberly 51, Snake River 49

KIMBERLY — The Bulldogs earned perhaps their most impressive win of the season with Saturday’s upset home win over the No. 1-ranked 3A team in the state.

Snake River was undefeated until Wednesday, when it lost to No. 3-ranked Shelley 44-41. In December, the Panthers beat Kimberly 62-51.

“The kids see those rankings. They knew who they were playing,” Kimberly coach Daren Garey said. “We had a lot of kids make a lot plays.”

The game was close throughout. Kimberly went ahead for good with about 15 seconds left, when Noah Mooney made a layup on a pass from Blake Phillips.

Gage Burnham, Trey Garey and Taylor Holcomb each scored nine points for the Bulldogs (10-5), who host Filer on Tuesday.

“We beat the No. 1 team in the state and we didn’t have one kid in double figures,” Daren Garey said. “That shows how much of a team win it was.”

DECLO — The Hornets fought off a first-quarter deficit to beat Valley in a game that Declo head coach Jacoby Fox said was “a good, back-and-forth game.”

Declo (12-3, 1-0) will travel to Buhl on Wednesday.

OAKLEY — Slade Dill scored 31 points and grabbed 24 rebounds in the win for the 1A Division II Blue Devils over the 1A-DI Hornets.

Justin Wood put up 17 points and nine rebounds for Richfield (1-13, 0-7), who will host Castelford on Monday for a North Side conference matchup.

Canyon Ridge 46, Buhl 38

TWIN FALLS — Caitlin Crist had another great offensive performance on Saturday, scoring 29 points to lead Canyon Ridge past Buhl at home.

The Indians could only muster seven points in the first half, which Riverhawks head coach Kevin Cato said was crucial for the victory.

“We limited them to one made shot in the first quarter and were able to withstand their late run,” he said.

Absent from the scorebook was Sage Eckert, one of Buhl’s top scorers who Cato said caught some foul trouble. Madison Somers and Kayla Morse led the Indians with 12 points each.

Grace Lupumba also added a double-double (10 points and 12 rebounds) for Canyon Ridge (4-14, 1-8), who will host Minico on Tuesday.

Buhl (12-6, 3-3) will host Wendell on Tuesday.

SHOSHONE — Stevie Torres drained two free throws with 3.4 seconds left to play to give the Trojans a one-point win in Shoshone.

Shoshone head coach Tim Chapman said the Indians struggled from the field to help Wendell stay in it.

Jackie Hollenbeck scored eight points for Wendell (5-13, 0-2), who will travel to Buhl on Tuesday.

Cierra Hennings scored a game-high nine points for No.4 Shoshone (15-3, 7-2), who will face Hagerman on the road on Tuesday.

“We just ran out of steam in the fourth quarter,” he said.

Alana Floyd scored 7 points to lead Hagerman (10-8, 4-5), who will host Shoshone on Tuesday.

Oakley (18-0, 9-0) will play at Valley on Tuesday for a chance to go undefeated in conference.
