Bear River took on the defending 3A State Champions from the state of Idaho in the semi-finals of the Star Valley Shootout Friday night. Sugar-Salem from Sugar City, Idaho was the opponent and what a physical bunch they were. Bear River found themselves just a point behind heading into the second quarter and after deploying their half-court trap they took a 10 point lead into the intermission. Bear River’s pressure defense took a toll on the Diggers and extended their lead throughout the second half pulling away to a 13 point victory. Jacob Olsen led the attack with 15 points followed by Jake Dahle’s 14 and Mark Huber’s 11. Parker Coombs had a nice game contributing 8 points in the win.
