FORT HALL — The Fort Hall Braves lost to the Chargers 0 to 44 at Portneuf Wellness Center Complex on Saturday, September 15.
Coach Eddie Kniffin wasn’t too pleased with how the line did. He said they do well at practices but it just has to translate to the field. He said for some reason when they come to town the players act like they’re scared to leave the reservation. However, the team they played is one of the top teams in the league.
“They won’t hit the other team like they hit each other,” said Kniffin.
Kniffin encourages parents to keep encouraging their players. The team is one of the youngest teams and is still learning and for a majority of the kids it’s their first time playing football.
The Braves have three more games, with their next game on Saturday, September 22 at Sho-Ban High at 6 p.m. The Warriors will play at the same place at 7:30 p.m.
