Game Recap September 7, 2013

I don't know if Coach Neidhold spent the summer watching Karate Kid movies but after watching the game between the Southridge Suns and the Richland Bombers, Mr. Miyagi would have been proud. The Bombers have achieved balance. The Bombers through the ball for 183 yards and ran the ball for 237 with four different running backs tallying over 49 yards as the Bombers defeated the Suns 27-7.

The Bomber started off the season in quick fashion. After the opening kickoff, Richland marched 69 yards in two plays capped off by a Zach Whitby to Payton Radliff pass that covered the last 54 yards for the 6-0 lead.

Later in the first quarter, Southridge got their game going after Brenden Kelly recovered a Bomber fumble at the 49 yard line. The next play, Jair Ealy-Thomas connected with Kelly for a 46 yard pass that got the Suns to the Richland 2 yard line. Kadin Diaz then finished the drive with a two-yard run and a 7-6 Southridge lead.

Richland would not really feel threatened the rest of the night. Strong defense and that balanced offensive attack took over the game. After Gibson McGeorge intercepted a tipped Ealy-Thomas pass, the Bomber embarked on a 35 yard, 7 play drive to retake the lead at 14-7 going into halftime.

On their first drive in the second half, Richland extended their lead with a 10 play, 58 yard drive. Josh Phillips ran the ball in from the two to make the score 21-7 Bombers. On the next drive, they put the game out of reach with an 8 play, 69 yard drive when Anthony Galat hauled in a seven yard pass from Whitby for the final tally.

Again, balance was the key to the game and hopefully the Bombers can keep it going throughout the season. Anthony Galat lead the Bomber rushers with 71 yards followed by Bennett Peterson with 58, Nathan Perry with 50, and Josh Phillips rounding out the fearsome foursome with 48 yards for a Richland total of 237.Zach Whitby was 14 for 22 for 183 yards with three touchdown passes to one interception and a two-point conversion so for you high school fantasy players, Zach might be a good pickup for next week.

Speaking of next week, the green and gold stay home once again and entertain the Walla Walla Blue Devils at 7:00PM on Friday, September 13, 2013. The weather should still be gorgeous so bring the famliy and make an evening of it with the Richland Bombers!
