“That’s a pretty scrappy team,” Poky coach Joe Green said of Bonneville. “When they made their run in the fourth quarter, we were able to withstand it.”

The Bears trailed 29-27 at halftime and got outscored 6-3 in the third. Bear Lake briefly led the game in the fourth before North Fremont regained control.

“Both teams were tired,” Bear Lake coach Brandon Carlsen said. “It sucks to lose. We’ve got two more games this week, we can’t sit and pout.”

Briston Schreiber scored 10 points to lead the Bears (0-1), who play Friday at Rich (Utah).

ROCKLAND 44, AMERICAN FALLS 38

The fourth quarter was the difference for Rockland in Wednesday’s 44-38 win at American Falls.

The game was tied at halftime and after three quarters.

“We just battled,” Rockland coach Shae Neal said. “Every possession we were working, loose balls we were on the floor.”

Levi Farr had a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double for the Bulldogs (1-0), who play Friday at Sho-Ban. American Falls (0-2) plays Saturday at Salmon.

GRACE 54, SODA SPRINGS 44

Grace overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to beat Soda Springs 54-44 on Wednesday in Grace.

After leading for most of the game, Grace fell behind by four points at the end of the third quarter. The Grizzlies bounced back and earned the double-digit victory.

“We had, of course, some rusty spots during the game,” Grace coach Rory Lloyd said. “Midway through the fourth quarter, we starting gelling together and playing together a little better.”

“The squad looked good for our first match of the year,” Poky coach JB Plato said. “We have a lot of new faces in our lineup this year, and they did well. It’s always a battle going on the road for the first dual, but the kids wrestled hard and showed a lot of potential.”

Pocatello (1-0, 1-0 4A District 4-5) travels to wrestle Canyon Ridge and Valley on Dec. 11. Preston (0-1, 0-1 4A District 4-5) heads to the Ardis E Nash girls tournament on Saturday.
