  • Pasco Bulldogs 22, Richland Bombers 7

    The first night of the Mike Neidhold era didn't go as he might have planned it but there is solace in the fact that 1) the game doesn' t count in the standings; 2) three of his most flight-tested Bombers where still in the hangar; and 3) his kids played a good, hard game against a quality Pasco Bulldog squad and never quit. There are several things to look forward to as the se

GAME 2: Friday September 12, 2008 — Wildcat Stadium
    • Richland
    • 35
    • Eastmont
    • 24
  • Richland Bombers 35, Eastmont Wildcats 24

    Scary, that was the word of the game. Scary bad in the first half. Scary good in the second half and a fourth quarter that was just downright scary. The fans who braved $4 a gallon gas, travelled to East Wenatchee and watched the Bombers defeat the Eastmont Wildcats 35 to 24 got every penny's worth and then some. The first half was all Eastmont, all the time. The Wildcats marched the op

    • West Valley

    • Richland
    • 56
  • Richland Bombers 56, West Valley Rams 7

    At the start of every prize fight each boxer starts slowly, dancing and jabbing, measuring the opponent in preparation for a long, 12 round bout. The Richland Bombers must not watch a lot of boxing. One play was all the dancing and jabbing the Bombers cared to do against the West Valley Rams. Jamison Rowe opened the game by returning the opening kickoff 34 yards to the 44 yard line. He

GAME 4: Friday September 26, 2008 — Zaepfel Stadium
    • Richland
    • 35
    • Eisenhower
    • 7
  • Richland Bombers 35, Eisenhower Cadets 7

    The Richland Bombers took care of business tonight with a 35-7 dismantling of the Eisenhower Cadets at Zaepfel Stadium in Yakima. Though it took awhile for the Bomber offense to get on track, the defense and special teams were on the ball from the start. Usual suspect, Jamison Rowe, got the Bombers on the scoreboard quickly with a dazzling 67 yard punt return for a touchdown and a 7-0 s
GAME 5: Friday October 3, 2008 — Fran Rish Stadium
    • Hanford
    • 20
    • Richland
    • 21
  • Bombers slide past Falcons

    The phrase, "I'd rather be lucky than good," is an apt response from any Bomber football player after a tense, sloppy 21-20 win over cross-town rival Hanford. The Falcons went toe-to-toe against the Bombers and if not for a missed two-point conversion attempt, this game may have never ended. For the second time in three years, the Hanford Falcons struck first, scoring on a 12 yard touch
GAME 6: Friday October 10, 2008 — Fran Rish Stadium
    • Kennewick
    • 7
    • Richland
    • 41
  • Richland Bombers 41, Kennewick Lions 7

    The Richland Bombers won their fifth game in a row with a dominating performance against the Kennewick Lions. The Bombers started off slowly, taking a 6-0 lead into the second quarter thanks to two Jacob Moreno 34 yard field goals. The second quarter, though, was anything but slow. Jamison Rowe tried to get the Bombers going with a 67 yard punt return for a touchdown, but a holding pena
GAME 7: Saturday October 18, 2008 — Neil F. Lampson Stadium
    • Richland
    • 28
    • Kamiakin
    • 7
  • Richland Bombers 28, Kamiakin Braves 7

    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 p
GAME 8: Thursday October 23, 2008 — Fran Rish Stadium
    • Walla Walla
      Blue Devils
    • 19
    • Richland
    • 34
  • Richland 34, Walla Walla 19

    The Cascade Conference championship was already in the bag and the Senior Bombers had given flowers to their mothers. You couldn't blame the Richland Bombers for wanting to get the game against the Walla Walla Blue Devils over with as soon as possible. One play was just about enough. Hunter Olveda burst through the Blue Devil line on the first play from scrimmage and flew 69 yards for t
GAME 9: Friday October 31, 2008 — Fran Rish Stadium
    • Wenatchee
    • 6
    • Richland
    • 14
  • Richland Bombers 14, Wenatchee Panthers 6

    There were strange things going on at Fran Rish Stadium and it had absolutely nothing to do with Halloween. The Richland Bombers took out the Wenatchee Panthers 14 to 6 in a classic battle of defenses. Trust me, offense was secondary. Imagine a game where both sides punted eighteen (18) times for a total of 571 yards and one blocked, fumbled seven (7) times, and combined for 61 yards ru

  • Central Valley Bears 35, Richland Bombers 20

    Well, it looks like the 2008 Bomber football season has come to a close. The Bombers lost to Central Valley 35-20 in the Regional Playoffs. I'm sorry there won't be any more information coming from my site. Today is my son's birthday and he only has one 7th birthday. I'm sure the boys in green and gold are sad their season is over but what a wonderful season it has been. Mike Neidhold d
