  • Kennewick’s magical run comes to an end - Tri City Herald

    The Kennewick Lions’ magical run through the football postseason came to an end Saturday with a 35-6 loss at the hands of Lakes.

    The state 3A quarterfinal loss in Lakewood ended a four-week run that saw the Lions having to beat Hanford in the final regular-season game to qualify for the playoffs; a big 34-32 regional road win in Spokane against then 8-2 Mt. Spokane; and a 20-13 first-round state tournament victory last weekend against Wilson of Tacoma.

    For Kennewick coach Bill Templeton, he said his Lions have been feeling good this past month.

    “We really had a lot of fun,” said Templeton.

    The loss to Lakes ends Kennewick’s record at 6-6. The Lancers, who advance to play defending state champion Eastside Catholic next weekend in the semifinals, beat Kamiakin 53-34 last weekend at Lampson Stadium in the first round of state.

    The Lancers were forced to punt early in the game.

    “We came out and tried to play our game, but realized that they were a better team than we expected,” said senior running back Yisrael Stephens. “We came back and stopped them on defense. Our defense wouldn’t let them [score].”

    Forcing the Lions’ Dillon Plew to throw an incomplete pass on 4th-and-5, the Lancers got the ball and the offense returned to the form that averages 47.5 points a game.

    Andrew Bostic became the workhorse and carried the ball for several first downs. Then quarterback Jaiave Magalei tossed the ball to Chris Hunter for a 59 yard touchdown to go up 7-0.

    Bostic ran the ball in from 15 yards out to make it 14-0 in the first, before Kennewick answered on the ensuing kickoff.

    Kennewick’s lone touchdown came on an 86-yard kickoff return by Raymond Gutierrez, who had come on strong the last month for the Lions at running back.

    That was it though. Lakes’ defense recovered one fumble and picked off three passes.

    “First, they have some outstanding players and played well,” said Templeton. “We were in the Red Zone five times and didn’t score.”

    Plew agreed.

    “They’re big, they’re physical, and they’re fast,” Plew said. “We’d have to play a perfect game to beat them.”

    The Lancers defense was aggressive, said Plew.

    “They were disguising their blitzes really well,” he said. “They looked like they’d be in Cover 2 or man and at the last second they’d come up with blitzes. They did really good at disguising the blitzes.”

    Kennewick trailed 28-6 at the half, but the Lions defensively fought back.

    “Our defense shut them out in the second half until we threw an interception and they brought it back 40-plus yards to our 10,” said Templeton.

    On the next play, Stephens scored on a 10-yard run for a 35-6 lead.

    Templeton liked his defense’s play.

    “We held (Magalei) in check for a good portion of the game,” said Templeton.

    He felt the Lions had held standout Hunter in check too. So did Plew.

    “We really stepped up defensively in the second half,” added Plew. “We forced them into six punts, and they turned the ball over on downs another time.”

    Gutierrez finished with 100 yards rushing on 14 carries, while Plew threw for 181 yards on 17-for-34 passing.

  • All Conference 2015

    The 2015 All Conference Teams were announced the other day and a number of Kennewick Lions were among those selected.  Leading off the pack was Senior DJ Dyer who garnered Offensive Lineman of the year.

    Dyer a 6-4 285lb Earth-mover was a 2nd team selection in 2014.  DJ was the anchor of a stellar line that helped give the 2015 Lions one of the more potent running attacks in the MCC.  Dyer is getting several college looks and is sure to play on Saturdays next fall.

     dj-dyer

    Dyer was the only Lion selected among the first team

    Devyn Edward, Rogelio Guizar, Andrew Fridley, Brenden Villasenor and Blake Loftus all were selected to the 2nd Team All Conference.

    Devyn Edward was selected as 2nd Team Defensive Back and was one of Kennewick's "Lock-down" corners, with 3 interceptions on the year.  Devyn was also one of the Lions go-to receivers with 15 receptions for 218-yards and 2TDs

    Rogelio Guizar was selected as 2nd Team Linebacker, Rogelio was a stalwart workhorse in the middle of the defense for the Lions.  His play was key to the sucess of the defense this year.

    Andrew Fridley was selected as 2nd Team Linebacker. Fridley, a junior was all over the field for the Lions finding himself in the mix of the action defensively, Andrew will be a key piece of the puzzle for 2016.

    Brenden Villasenor was selected as 2nd Team Offensive Line.  Brenden is just a Junior but has seen varsity action since his Freshman year.  Brenden was another key piece of the Lions run game and will be another key cog in the ongoing sucess of the Lions.

    Blake Loftus was selected as 2nd Team Wide Reciever.  Loftus was the 2nd leading receiver in the MCC with 42 receptions, 460-yards, and  3-TD.  The speedy Loftus, just a Junior, is yet another athletic Lion with another year to play.

    Congratulations to all the all-conference selections for 2015, see below for the full list.

Kaytlyn Coleman Awarded Big Sky Field Athlete Of the Week; Coleman moves to 30th in the country amongst DI schools after weight throw victory in Seattle After a first-place finish in the weight throw at the UW Preview (Jan. 16), senior Kaytlyn Coleman was awarded Big Sky Field Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 19. Coleman recorded a seasonal-best toss of 62-8 1/2 inches (19.11m) to win the weight throw. With that mark, Coleman moved to first on the Big Sky performance list and up to 30th in the country amongst other Division I schools.

The Eagles will travel to Pullman, Wash., this Saturday, Jan. 23, to compete at the WSU Open where they will compete against other Big Sky Conference competitor Idaho, along with other Division I schools. After last week's performances at the UW Preview, the Eagles have now met 15 conference qualifying standards – five for the men and ten for the women. Of those athletes, freshman Aaron Pullin (heptathlon), junior Sarah Reiter (3,000), and senior Jozie Kimes (pentathlon) rank in the top 25 nationally among other Division I schools. Sophomore Rebecca Tarbert ranks eighth in the women's 55 meter dash on the Big Sky Conference all-time list (third in school history) with her performance at the Candy Cane VIII (Dec. 5). In the Big Sky Conference preseason polls, the Eastern men's team is ranked fifth and the women are picked to finish fourth at the Big Sky Indoor Championships Feb. 26-27 in Bozeman, Mont.
