After a disappointing opening day on Thursday, all four area baseball teams had impressive showings Friday at the state tournaments.

Idaho Falls (5A), Bonneville (4A), South Fremont (3A) and Firth (2A) all advanced to the consolation final games of their respective brackets.

The Tigers, coming off a 12-inning loss against Mountain View, bounced back with a 12-2 five-inning win over Kuna.

Merit Jones struck out five in the five-inning complete game and Jaxon Sorenson finished 3 for 3 with three RBIs.

Idaho Falls plays Coeur d’Alene at 10 a.m. Saturday at College of Idaho for the consolation trophy.

The 4A bracket is set as Bonneville will face Ridgevue in the consolation championship Saturday at 10 a.m. at College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls.

The Bees (15-14) jumped out to an early lead and padded the advantage late.

Starter Jacob Perez struck out nine and gave up just one earned run. Teegan Bird finished with two doubles, a triple and three RBIs.

South Fremont scored 11 runs in the second inning and handled Bonners Ferry 19-0 in five innings in the 3A matchup.

Nine different players had RBIs and Peyson Yancey left no doubt, tossing a shutout.

Kaimen Peebles had a double, triple and six RBIs for the Cougars (19-7-1), who will play Marsh Valley in Saturday’s consolation final at Fruitland High School. First pitch is 10 a.m.

In 2A action, Firth also bounced back from a loss in a big way, defeating Bear Lake 11-1 in Pocatello.

Firth got the jump on the Bears, scoring five runs in the first two innings, some of them with the help of some miscues from the Bears.

Sam Park pitched a six-inning complete game and finished with six strikeouts. Park also added a pair of runs and two RBIs.

Burton Park went 2 for 3 with three RBIs.

The Cougars (16-7) face Melba in the 2A consolation final Saturday at 9 a.m. at Halliwell Park in Pocatello.
