Volleyball: Spartans Take Second in Tourney Invite

The Minico Volleyball team is building a solid foundation early in their 2016 season campaign. After making it to the top Gold Bracket last week in the 28 team Peg Peterson Tournament and beating teams such as Highland, Hillcrest, and Preston along the way, the Minico Spartans began this week with a new set of goals.

One of those goals was on Thursday as Minico traveled to Wood River and took care of the contending Wolverines in a sweep. As timing and confidence grew, the Spartans charged into Saturday’s Twin Invitational Tournament with momentum. The success continued as the Lady Spartans made it to the Championship game before falling to Twin.

The Spartans will be in action in their first home match of the season this Tuesday Sept 13th vs Jerome in the Multipurpose gym. JV/Frosh at 6:00pm and Varsity to follow. Go Spartans!!


New year, same story: Minico crushes Burley

football-vs-burley-2016David Bashore For the Times-News, Sep 9, 2016

RUPERT — In the last decade of the Mini-Cassia football rivalry, a Minico win has seemed about as certain as death and taxes. The Spartans made it 12 wins in a row over rival Burley on Friday night, routing the Bobcats 43-6 at Bill Matthews Field.

Chase Chandler accounted for five touchdowns in three different manners, and the Minico defense held Burley to just 57 yards of offense in the latest chapter of the rivalry game, which has swung to the Minidoka County side of the Snake River since Burley’s last series victory in 2004. Only one of the 12 straight Minico wins has come by fewer than 21 points.

“We all know what the rivalry means, and we won’t want to be ‘that team’ that loses it,” said Chandler, “We already get really up for this game and we were really focused because we know what it means and we have coaches who have coached in this game for a long time – and some of them played in it too.”

The Spartans (2-1, 1-0 Great Basin) racked up 398 yards of offense in their onslaught, 300 of which came in a first half that ended with a 37-0 advantage.
“Our coaches had a really good plan to stop their run – they haven’t scored much this season, but they’ve moved the ball up and down the field – and that plan definitely benefited us,” said Minico coach Dr. Tim Perrigot. “It’s a fun game for all of us – it’s way bigger than the game. It’s a big deal to the cheerleaders, to the band, to the parents, to the businesses in the community. It’s just fun.”

Minico Football Starts September with Win

Minico football team began September by notching a 20-7 win in the late game at Holt Arena Friday night versus the Century Diamondbacks. Chase Bingham had an impressive opening kickoff return that landed the Spartans deep into Century territory but were unable to convert. After a defense stop of their own, Minico’s Chase Chandler began the scoring in the first quarter with a 10-yard run up the middle. The score was 7-0 at the end of the 1st quarter. Just moments after a Century score made it 7-7, Chandler connected with Regan Polvsen on a nice grab and run with a 70-yard touchdown pass to go up 13-7.  The Spartans held strong on defense, never allowing Century to score again.  Minico punched in one more touchdown to make the final 20-7.  The Spartans take on Rival Bobcats next Friday night Sept 9th at Minico in the home opener.  Go Spartans!

JV and Freshmen Football Sweep Highland: Varsity Preps for Rumble

The season openers for the young Spartans began with a couple of tight victories versus perennial 5A powerhouse Highland Thursday night.

The Freshmen won in a marathon shootout in the first game 56-49. Total yardage was off the charts as running back sRylan Chandler and Brant Etherington put up big numbers behind a tough offensive line.

The JV took home a challenging 19-13 victory in the night cap with stingy defense against a very potent Highland offense.  The secondary held off Highland in the closing quarter with speed and toughness. Mason Harwood ended the night with a sack to finish off the Rams as time ran down.

Varsity opens the season this Saturday in the Holt Arena at 10am vs Stansbury, UT in the Rocky Mountain Rumble.

Volleyball Sweeps Season Opener

Minico Volleyball had a terrific jump start to their 2016 season with a road victory over Preston Wednesday in 3 sets.  JV and Freshmen volleyball also took care of the Indians with JV winning in 5 sets and the freshmen winning in 2 sets. Spartan volleyball will be in action again on August 30th in Pocatello.  Their first home match will be Sept 13th vs Jerome.

Boys Soccer Starts 2016 with Two Weekend Victories

The Minico Boys Soccer Team started off 2016 with two victories!  After going winless in 2015, the boys bolted into the win column by defeating American Falls at home in the opener 2-1 and then going on the road to defeat the Mountain Home Tigers 8-0.

On Friday Jake Link and Pablo Ramirez scored a goal a piece to lead the Spartans to victory. American Falls scored their single goal on a penalty kick in the final minute of play to make the score 2-1.

On Saturday Jake Link and Jose Cuevas got things rolling making two goals a piece to explode the Spartans into the lead. Wyatt Owen added a header goal off a corner kick along with goals from Juan Aguilar, Alex Gil, and Daniel Avila to push the win to 8-0.

Head Coach Armondo Tapia is pleased with what he’s seen so far from his team. The boys will be back on the field vs Hillcrest Knights @ Minico on Tuesday August 23rd at 4:30pm. The girls will also be in action Tuesday vs Hillcrest in Idaho Falls at 4:30pm.
