The Teton Timberwolves returned to Mark Huntsman Field on Friday, falling behind Snake River early. The Panthers never gave up the lead.

The game started slow, with each team shut out during the first quarter.

It looked like it was going to be a defensive battle until the Snake River offense came to life after the first score of the game, a receiving touchdown.

The extra point was missed, however, leading to a 0-6 lead.

That miss wouldn’t mean much, as Snake River intercepted a #4 Jarom Heuseveldt pass and quickly turned it into 8 points after a successful two-point attempt.

The slide into the halftime locker room would continue for THS, with another Snake River touchdown with :44 seconds left in the half.

Up 0-22 at half, Snake River put the game away with another touchdown to lead 0-29 with 11:03 left in the third quarter.

The Wolves wouldn’t go down without a fight however as #22 Zac Douglass hauled in a short Heuseveldt pass and bumbled his way over the line to make it 7-29.

The Panthers and Wolves would then trade turnovers as THS recovered a fumble and Snake River immediately picked off Heuseveldt on the following play.

With the momentum back to Snake River, they quickly turned the turnover into 7 with a receiving touchdown and good PAT.

After another Teton punt, Snake River’s running back would get loose again to go up 7-43.

With 8:08 left in the 4th quarter, Snake River would claim its third interception of the night. This led to their final points of the night after a successful field goal. 7-46 Snake River.

Teton would score two touchdowns as the game ended, with both #20 Denver Arnold and #16 Aaron Heindel scoring on the ground.

The 21- 46 loss brings Teton to a tough 1-5 record with two games to go. Both games are conference matchups, both to kick off in Driggs.

First, up will be the Diggers of Sugar-Salem next Friday and then the South Fremont Cougars on Oct. 15.
