Game Recap October 19, 2008

This weeks' performance against a very Jekyl and Hyde Kamiakin team was ugly at best, but a win is a win is a win. The victory was sponsored, almost exclusively, by the Richland Bomber Defense.

The first half of the Bombers 28-7 victory seemed virtually flawless. Kamiakin's offense could just not get on track as the Bomber Defense stiffened up, plugging up Dom Davis' running lanes and pestering quarterback Corey Hutchinson mercilessly. In the meantime, Hayden Hilty calmly through for four first half touchdowns, deftly using his airborne team of Jacobs and Rowe. Jamison Rowe thrilled the crowd by running through, around, and under most of the Braves defense and possibly the bench, dance team and marching band on his way to a 77 yard touchdown. Not to be outdone, Brett Jacobs hauled in two touchdowns as well, including a 38 yard pass to start the scoring for the Bombers on his way to receiving the SunMart Player of the Game award. The Bombers entered halftime with a very comfortable 28-0 lead.

The Braves quickly took the first drive after halftime 69 yards in 8 plays. Instead of relying on the run, Coach Beverlin had the Braves throwing the ball specifically to speedy Curtis Moore who hauled in a 45 yard pass which, in turn set up the Braves only score on a 7 yard touchdown pass.

As pretty as the first half was, the second half was uncomfortable and a little bit scary, especially after witnessing the Tampa Rays implosion against the Red Sox on Thursday night. The quick score by the Braves in the second half did provide some measure of drama but the Bomber defense was able to keep the uprising from getting truly out of hand. The next two Kamiakin drives both ended on fourth and goal from the one inch and five yard lines respectively. By stuffing the Braves in successive drives, the Bombers were able to keep Big Mo at bay.

With the win, the Bombers were able to capture the first-ever Cascade Division championship and a berth in the playoffs.

Coach Mike Neidhold became the first head coach in Bomber history to win a championship in his first year at the helm. Fran Rish, J.D. Covington, Lonnie Pierson and Rick Redden all were forced to wait until year three before capturing their first division or conference crown.

Next week, the Bombers entertain the mighty Blue Devils of Walla Walla. This is the last regularly scheduled game of the season before the Big Nine and Greater Spokane League crossover games start in two weeks.

Go Bombers!
