  • Kennewick clinches MCC 3A No. 2 seed with win

    The Kennewick Lions needed a win or a Southridge loss to clinch a spot in the District 5/ 8 regional crossover playoffs and give themselves a chance to reach state for the third time in the last four seasons.

    They got both Friday night, stomping Hanford 56-14 in a Mid-Columbia Conference game at Lampson Stadium at the same time Richland was handing the Suns a 14-3 loss.

    With the win, the Lions (4-5) earn the right to travel to Spokane to meet Greater Spokane League champion Mt. Spokane (7-2) on Friday.

    The Falcons had no answer defensively for Kennewick running back Dwight Norwood, who rushed 21 times for 231 yards and three touchdowns. The Lions ran for six scores on the day, and Josh Kutzke, who took over for injured starter Matt Driver, passed for two more.

    Hanford quarterback Desmond Samples found Kendall Watson for a 38-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter to cut Kennewick’s lead to 14-7, but the Lions scored the next 42 points to pull away.

  • Kennewick beats Southridge 32-9

    Special to the Tri-City Herald October 17, 2014

    Bill Templeton has done a lot of mish-mashing with his lineups this season. Just when the Kennewick Lions appear to get some traction and put out the lineup Templeton penciled in to start the season, they seem to get bitten by the injury bug.

    Case in point: Last week against Richland. The Lions were without their top running back, Dwight Norwood, and one of their best two-way players, Michael Vallier, in a loss to the Bombers.

    Those two were back Friday night, and so was Kennewick’s running game.

    Norwood rushed for three touchdowns, and Vallier had some key runs as the Lions ran away from Southridge 32-9 on Friday night at Lampson Stadium.

    “I thought our offensive line did a nice job tonight,” Templeton said. “We talked all week about what (they) can do as individuals to make us better and make this team better.”

    With the win, Kennewick (3-4, 2-3 Mid-Columbia Conference) takes control of the conference’s second playoff spot. The Lions are at Chiawana next Friday night.

    “That’s always the goal,” Vallier said. “This is great as a senior to go out with a win over Southridge.”

    Norwood, who was injured two weeks ago in a win over Pasco, did not play last week in the Lions’ 44-7 loss to the Bombers. He made his return to the backfield known right away Friday night.

    Norwood ran the ball 31 times for 232 yards and three touchdowns. He had four runs of 20 yards or more, including a 52-yard touchdown run that all but put the game away.

    Norwood got free, eluding several Suns defenders at the line of scrimmage and breaking loose down the left sideline to give the Lions a 29-0 lead with 5:55 to play in the third quarter.

    Southridge (1-6, 1-4) did not go away and put some pressure on the Lions late in the third quarter and into the fourth. After a Kennewick turnover, Andrew Stayrook burst down the sideline to get Southridge on the board with 1:53 remaining in the third quarter to make the score 29-7. It was Southridge’s first offensive touchdown in two games. The Suns’ lone score last week against Walla Walla came on an interception return.

    On Kennewick’s next possession, quarterback Matthew Driver fumbled the ball in the end zone for a safety to get the Suns within 29-9, and the Suns suddenly had some life.

    But the momentum was short-lived as a fumble ended the Suns’ next drive.

    “They play hard, and they didn’t give up,” Templeton said.

    The Suns’ offense, which ranks last in the MCC at a little more than 155 yards per game, again struggled. The Suns had just 29 yards of total offense in the first half, and they finished the game with 177.

    Most of those yards came off the arm of Jair Ealy-Thomas, who entered late in the second quarter to provide a spark to the Suns. Ealy-Thomas, after a hot start, finished 7-of-22 passing for 104 yards.

    “We wanted to stop the run,” Vallier said. “That’s always our main focus.

    “We just have to keep getting better.”

  • Kennewick rumbles past Pasco 48-20

    Matthew Driver chuckled when asked about the amount of passes he threw Friday night.

    It was exactly two. The Kennewick junior quarterback was 1-for-2 for 9 yards and a touchdown.

    The lack of the passing game was just a product of the Lions’ game plan.

    “It would have been nice to throw a little more, but we knew our running game was going to have a big night,” he said.

    And he was right. The Lions ran up and down the field on Pasco, amassing more than 400 yards on the ground in a 48-20 victory over the Bulldogs at Lampson Stadium.

    “We wanted to control the ball tonight,” Lions coach Bill Templeton said. “We knew their offense was explosive, and we did a good job of keeping them off the field.”

    Kennewick used a big second quarter to pull away from Pasco for its first Mid-Columbia Conference victory of the season.

    Dwight Norwood had three first-half touchdown runs, the final one a 15-yard sprint around the right side to put Kennewick ahead 26-7 with 5:34 to go before halftime.

    Norwood, who entered the game third in the conference in rushing yards, carried the ball 14 times for 132 yards and the three scores, all in the first half. He did not play in the second half after suffering an arm injury.

    That opened the door for Raymond Gutierrez to lead the running attack. Gutierrez finished the night with 22 carries for 160 yards and two touchdowns.

    All totaled, the Lions had 57 carries for 402 yards and six rushing touchdowns.

    “We did a good job of blocking on the edge,” Templeton said.

    Driver, who spent almost the entire night handing the ball off, did make the most of his only throw in the second half, hitting Michael Vallier for a 9-yard touchdown reception.

    “This week was all about executing,” Driver said. “The coaches put us in the right spots, it’s just up to us to execute.”

    Kennewick (2-3, 1-2) travels to play Richland (1-4, 1-2) next week.

    “I think this win was good for us,” Templeton said. “Richland is a good team, and they will be ready.”

    Pasco, which fell behind early, appeared to be one or two big plays away from getting back in the game late in the second quarter and then early in the third.

    However, some key dropped passes and a turnover stifled the pass-heavy offense.

    Kolby Killoy, the conference’s leading passer, was 19-of-36 passing for 234 yards and a touchdown. However, he was just 3-for-8 in the second half for 28 yards and a touchdown.

    “This is a good win for us right now,” Templeton said.
