    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.

    This much is true. Any win over Walla Walla is a good thing. The Richland Bombers came out fast. After receiving the opening kickoff the offense ripped off a 12-play, 71 yard drive. Zach Whitby connected with Anthony Galat and the Bombers led 7-0. The Blue Devils first posession ended with a high snap on a punt attempt and Richland got the ball back on the Wa-Hi 37 yard lne.

    Wow! Only one week removed from a tough loss to Chiawana, the Richland Bombers delivered about as perfect a game as you can play against Lewiston in a 50-7 route of the Bengals in the first meeting between these two schools since 1953. After their first drive fizzled, Isaac Campbell's punt pinned the Bengals on their own five yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Lewiston q

    The Kamiakin Braves and Richland Bombers must have been watching Congress this week because they couldn't resolve their differences in regulation and took four Kansas City overtime periods to finish their business as the Bombers outlasted the Braves in a 56-49 thriller at Fran Rish Stadium. The Bombers started the game with a beautiful, efficient drive that covered 70 yards in 8 plays, f

    It's been three weeks since the Richland Bombers were manhandled by Chiawana and from the looks of things, none of their remaining opponents will be sending the Riverhawks "thank you" cards. The Bombers throroughly dominated a very young Kennewick Lion team 56-14 raising their cumulative offensive output since September 21 to 162 points. Kennewick won the toss and elected to ki

    Start fast, finish strong. That is the mantra of Beau Baldwin, head coach of my beloved Eastern Eagles. I mention this because Richland head coach Mike Neidhold is also an Eastern graduate and apparently he has been paying attention as the Bombers struck early and often and had enough strength in the second half to finish off the Post Falls Trojans 42-13. For the second week in a row, th

    One year ago the Hanford Falcons were finally able to claim victory over their crosstown rivals. This year, the Falcons were looking for more of the same at Fran Rish Stadium but the Richland Bombers canceled those plans with a 28-7 victory. These games are never easy. Both teams seem to find a little extra when playing each other and this year was no different. Richland received the ope

    The Richland Bombers finished their regular Mid-Columbia Conference season against the Pasco Bulldogs at Edgar Brown Memorial Stadium in Pasco and won going away, 63-0. Anthony Galat started the show by running back the opening kickoff 57 yards to the Pasco 25-yard line and then finished the job four plays later when Zach Whitby tossed him a 1-yard touchdown pass to make it 7-0.

    The Richland Bombers dominated the Ferris Saxons from the opening whistle enroute to a 35-7 victory at Joe Albi Stadium and a ticket to the WIAA State Playoffs for the first time since 2010. Ironically, that playoff run was ended by the same Ferris Saxons, but in 2013, it was all Richland Bombers. The real star of the show was the Richland defense which forced four fumbles, four intercep
