At Blackfoot, free throws helped the Bonneville High School girls basketball team finish off a 47-43 win over Blackfoot on Tuesday to grab the No. 1 seed for the 4A District 6 tournament.

The win moves the Bees to 20-0 overall and completes their regular season conference play at 10-0.

“I knew Blackfoot wasn’t going away,” Bonneville coach Amy Wood said. “I couldn’t ask for a better game going into districts. To have my kids be smart down the stretch, they really had to execute and do those little things.”

The game was a far cry from Bonneville’s 67-43 win over the Broncos in their last meeting on Dec. 18. The first quarter was a show between Blackfoot’s Hadley Humpherys and Bonneville’s Sadie Lott and ended 14-13 Bonneville after a Lott fast break layup. The Bees began double and triple teaming Humpherys in the second quarter and took a 22-20 lead into halftime.

Bonneville led by as much as 29-20 in the third quarter, ending it with a 31-25 lead. Blackfoot cut its deficit to 44-43 with 35 seconds left off a 3-pointer from Olivia Arave. Lott and Maunayia Harrigfeld combined to go 3 for 4 at the foul line down the stretch to seal the win.

Hunt had 20 points, Lott added 18 and Mariah Jardine had six—all in the fourth quarter—for Bonneville, which hosts Madison in its regular season finale Thursday.

Humphrerys and Tenleigh Smith had 11 points each while Arave had 10 for Blackfoot (16-3, 8-2), which ends the regular season Thursday at Jerome.
