It was another big defensive night for the Preston Indians. The defense shut down the Blackfoot Broncos’ high-scoring offense and escaped with a 7-3 conference victory at home Friday night.
Preston was able to score its only touchdown of the night in the fourth quarter and that was all the Indians needed. Courd Jones scampered 14 yards for paydirt and broke free from four would-be tacklers for six points.
Blackfoot’s only score came midway through the first quarter on a 22-yard field goal. After that initial score it was a defensive battle the rest of the game.
“To hold Blackfoot out of the end zone was just great,” said head coach Nick Hyde. “I’m just so proud of our defense. This was our first win in a long, long time over Blackfoot and our first conference victory this year.
“I’m also happy with our offense. We racked up some pretty good runs. Jones ran especially hard and got over 150 yards. Kaden Cole also looked really good, running for 94 yards. It appears like he’s overcome an early-season ankle injury.”
