Minico sets itself apart as District IV's top team

JEROME, Idaho ( KMVT / KSVT ) You might look at Jerome's 3-4 record and think there's no way that the Tigers have a chance at winning the Great Basin Conference.

But in reality, all but one of those losses came at the hands of non-conference opponents.

Now with first-place Minico in town, this game means everything to the Tigers.

Senior night in Jerome, a time for parents to bawl over their player's last game at home.

Colten Craig was recognized by the American Legion prior to the game as well. He earned the title of Most Patriotic Football player.

Those were the positives for Jerome, but the first quarter didn't go well.

The snap goes over Jack Howard's head on the punt. He jumps on it, but Minico gets excellent field position barely out of the end zone.

And then the Spartans punch it in on the first play with Colter May muscling his way in for six. But on the PAT, Craig blocks the kick attempt and the Spartans lead is only 6-0.

Moments later, Jerome fumbles and Spartans' Carson Schow recovers.

Then May will do his business for Minico once again, as they go up 13-0.

Minico takes care of another conference opponent, winning 48-21.

The Spartans improve to 4-0, 6-2 overall. The Tigers fall to 2-2, 3-5 overall.
