Game Recap October 30, 2010

Coming into tonight's game the biggest issue to be resolved was whether Jake McKinney would break the school's rushing record, he needed 145 yards. The Bombers biggest issue was how to get out of Moses Lake with all of their team members intact.

Once again, the Bombers started off the game strong, scoring on a 5 play, 58 yard drive hightlighted by an 39 yard pass play from Colter Quick to Tyler Powell. McKinney finished off the last 11 yards and the Bombers let 7-0. After a quick Chief drive ended in a punt, Richland was back at it starting at their own 16. Paying homage to 1980's era NBA basketball, the offense just gave the ball to Jake and let him go one-on-one against the Moses Lake defense. Seven plays, 55 more yards, and a 14-0 lead.

The game almost turned into a rout early when McKinney picked of a Justin Simmons pass and ran it back 80 yards for a touchdown. Alas, his brilliant play was eliminated by a roughing the passer penalty, the first of what seemed like a sea of yellow hankies that would haunt the Bombers throughout the next three quarters. Given the change in momentum, Moses Lake was able to get the ball deep into Richland territory but had to settle for a 24 yard Elliot Sage field goal.

A little silliness then ensued. On three successive plays: Moses Lake recovered an onside kick; Cole Hornbeck intercepted a pass for Richland; and Taylor Legrave returned the favor and intercepted it right back. I blame Halloween.

The sudden shift in events gave Moses Lake momentum and helped fuel a 10 play scoring drive capped by Kyler Moats one-yard plunge for the touchdown. Richland 14, Moses Lake 10.

Unfortunately, play had to be stopped for about 30 minutes when Chief quarterback Justin Simmons was injured as he was chased out of bounds at the 5 yard line. Though it's not clear what happened, Justin lay on the ground for quite awhile as the trainers assessed his injuries. Eventually he was carefully loaded on a backboard stretcher and taken off the field by ambulance. I saw him moving his arms and legs so hopefully it was a neck stinger and not something more serious.

The Bombers were once again able to score early in the third quarter when McKinney tallied his third touchdown of the game on a 4-yard run. Kevin Garza was wide left on the extra poinrt, though and the Bomber led 20-10. The Chiefs were not done yet and marched 79 yards in nine plays, capped off when Kyler Moats hit Taylor Legrave in the back of the endzone for a touchdown and suddenly the Bombers were only a field goal ahead, 20-17.

The Richland defense hung tough the rest of the way and put the game away late when Sawyer Powell intercepted a Moats pass at the 40 yard line. Jake McKinney had another outstanding game, finishing with 210 yards rushing. BK Robinson also did a great job in the series he highlighted with 69 yards on 3 carries.

Hopefully this game gave the Bombers a sense of urgency going into next weeks playoff play-in game. Next Friday night at 7:00PM (note the time), the Richland Bombers will be taking on Gonzaga Prep in a showdown of two great running backs. The Bullpups features Bishop Sankey who broke the GSL single-season rushing record in a losing effort against Ferris and of course, the Bombers feature McKinney, an improved passing game, and an excellent defense.

Let's make sure we give the Bullpups a nice welcome and fill the stadium. Two great teams should make for one great ball game.

Go Bombers!
