The semi-pro valley football team, the Bitterroot Blaze, are into the playoffs again in AA competition.
The team will go up against longtime rival the Missoula Phoenix Saturday, June 18, at 7pm. The home games have been held at the Corvallis Event Center field, but this week, they return to their old stompin' grounds - The Darby High School field.
