After losing a tight game to the second-ranked 3A team in the state, South Fremont bounced back with a 61-51win over Ririe Thursday night.

The Cougars only led by one after the first quarter but a second-quarter-run gave South Fremont a lead that they wouldn’t give back.

“Ririe came out ready to play ball,” said South Fremont head coach Bruce Kerbs. “We had a good battle with them and we were able to get the win over them in the end.”

Junior Ethan Webster scored what was easily a career high with 15 points off the bench including four three pointers.

“It was fun to watch him shine tonight,” Kerbs said.

South Fremont now boasts a record of 7-3 and were ranked third in the coaches poll released before the Marsh Valley game. The Cougars have a little under two weeks left before they start Conference play. Two games against Snake River and another game against Marsh Valley should provide tough preparation for their Conference Schedule.

“I feel really good,” Kerbs said. “We had a great game with Marsh the other night.They snuck out a win on us but Marsh is a good team. I feel like we’re getting close to where we need to be to start conference play.”
