1948: Bomber backfield

  • Chiawana 19, Richland 0

    There's a lot of pressure and a lot to live up to when your school has played in the state final two years in a row and registered only one regular season loss in the last three years. Richland's cross-river rivals, the Chiawana Riverhawks, saw their wildest dreams come true Friday night with their first victory over the Richland Bombers of the seniors' high school careers. The 19-0 shutout, Ch

    • 21
  • Hermiston 27, Richland 21

    The first MCC meeting between the Richland Bombers and the Hermiston Bulldogs was a wild ride, full of both great plays and puzzling events. Despite the Bombers coming out of the previous funk and showing some offensive weapons, they couldn't hold on and fell 21-27 to the newcomers. Richland came out on fire, kicking off to the Bulldogs and immediately forcing a three-and-out. Linebacke

  • Richland 28, Sunnyside 27

    The Bombers found that old familiar feeling again, although maybe not quite in the way everyone would have liked. After dropping two games to start the season, Richland traveled west to face the Sunnyside Grizzlies and came away with a dramatic 28-27 win. Although the Bombers possessed a clear advantage in physical talent, the tenacious Grizzlies wouldn't quit and made a game of it. The

  • Richland 41, Pasco 0

    The Richland Bombers got their ninth straight win against the Pasco Bulldogs, and their second of the season, with a 41-0 shutout at home. High scores and and shutouts have become the norm against Pasco, but this Pasco team is the best in years, so the win could actually be meaningful for the Bombers. The first play from scrimmage was, of course, a good run called back on a holding pena

    • Richland

  • Richland 35, Walla Walla 14

    Traveling to the Bermuda Triangle of high school sports always makes for an interesting game, and this year's trip to Walla Walla was no exception. Despite being overseen by an officiating crew only Rod Serling could appreciate, the Bombers came away with a 35-14 win, and plenty of memorable moments, over the Blue Devils. Among the memories were plenty of phantom holding calls (that's not so un

  • Richland 55, Southridge 7

    Last year's blowout win against the Southridge Suns saw the Richland Bombers score 63 points in the first half, 42 of those in the second quarter. This year's matchup was nearly the same, with eight touchdowns scored in the first half, and 35 points in the first quarter, as Richland added one to the Suns' loss column for the sixth straight year in a 55-7 drubbing. Despite rain before an

  • Richland 21, Kamiakin 14

    Sometimes a team needs a slap in the face to wake up, get their bearings, and decide to compete. The Bombers got that slap in the form of two Kamiakin touchdowns in the first quarter. A 51 yard touchdown drive and a defensive score on a bobbled screen pass had the Braves feeling like they could pull off a blowout to avenge last year's 33-0 whipping, and the Richland Bombers needed some serious

    • 14
  • Richland 35, Kennewick 14

    The annual triumph over Kennewick schools is complete. Richland took down The Kennewick Lions for the ninth straight year, 35-14, but not without a fight. The game was physical and punishing, as per tradition, and was not without its share of controversial calls. Head coach Mike Neidhold improved his record against Kennewick to 8-0. Richland's first half running game as impressive. Dhau

  • Richland 34, Hanford 24

    For a couple of weeks this season the Hanford Falcons sat at the top of the MCC standings by virtue of their victory over Chiawana. They put up gaudy numbers with their prolific passing game, which generated plenty of hype along with a league leading 310 points (that's 38.75 points per game coming into the final against Richland). This Falcon squad was touted as one of the best they've ever put
