At Hillcrest, the Skyline High School girls basketball team bested its District 91 rival Idaho Falls for the third time this season, beginning the 4A District 6 tournament with a 53-40 win.

The No. 4 seeded Grizzlies led 19-12 at halftime before the No. 5 seeded Tigers started chipping away.

“The girls came out with some nerves in the first quarter, but we were able to make a little run to get a lead,” Skyline coach Ty Keck said. “But in the second quarter we lost momentum. We lost energy and I.F. made a run at us.”

The Tigers made a run again in the third quarter to pull within 10, but after a Skyline timeout, the game was in Skyline control.

“We traded too many baskets in the second half,” Keck said. “But we played well. It’s tough to beat a team three times in a season.”

Annalise Cheret had 14 points while Mattie Olson added 13 for Skyline (10-11), which plays Wednesday versus No. 1 seeded Bonneville at Hillcrest.

Kennedy Burton had 15 points to lead Idaho Falls (2-19), which plays the loser of tonight’s Shelley/Hillcrest game on Friday in a loser-out game.

TETON 49, SOUTH FREMONT 46, OT: At St. Anthony, a solid second half was not enough for No. 2 seeded South Fremont in an overtime loss to Teton to begin the 3A District 6 basketball tournament. It was Teton’s first win over a conference opponent this season.
