Kelso’s Season Comes To Sudden End With 50-6 Loss At Kamiakin

Written by Bryan Levesque on November 14, 2010

Not many people picked the 2010 Kelso Hilanders to be playing the 2nd weekend of November in the WIAA 3A playoffs.

Thanks to the Kamiakin Braves, they won’t be playing on the 3rd weekend as Kelso fell 50-6 in Kennewick Saturday.

The word on Kamiakin was they had a gunslinging quarterback who had a few deep threats, one of which was quite electric in the return game, and a power run game to boot.

And that’s just the offense.

Word was they also had a pretty stingy defense.

Gunslinger QB? Check!

Braves QB Joey Jansen was 7 of 18 for 188 and threw 3 touchdown passes in just over 2 quarters of work.

Deep threat WR’s? Check!

WR Tyler Holle hauled in touchdown passes from 53 and 41 yards out while fellow WR A.J. Griffiths caught one from 31 yards out.

Electric return game? Check!

Tim White took a punt 64 yards down to the 1 setting up the Braves first touchdown, then took the 2nd half kickoff 82 yards down to the 8 and finally returned a punt 60 yards for the Braves final score to go up 50-0 with 2:37 left in the 3rd quarter.

Power run game? Check!

RB Dom Davis scored on touchdown runs from 2 and 8 yards out, and finished the game with 109 rushing yards on 11 carries while Cody Wilmoth scored on the Braves first play from scrimmage in the 2nd half from 8 yards out.

Stingy defense? Check!

Kelso only had 2 first downs in the first half and 199 of total offense, 80 of which came on their final drive vs back up players. The Defense pitched a shutout for over 46 minutes as well.

Kelso trailed 36-0 at the half, and 50-0 after 3.

The Hilanders struggled to move the ball all afternoon. QB Makio Mobbs was just 4 of 17 for 50 yards with 2 interceptions. RB Jared O’Neal had 14 hard carries for 76 well earned yards.

With just over 1 minute remaining in the game, Taylor Radcliffe capped off an 80 yard drive on vs what appeared to be Kamiakin backup defenders with an 8 yard touchdown run.

Kelso falls to 7-4 on the season with the loss. The Hilanders season is over.

    I blame the coaches for calling a poor game and not getting the players prepared for this game. I also blame them for letting the players do what they wanted on friday in Kennewick the night before the game. The scotties looked sluggish, tired, ill prepared, and just plain lost on the field. Coaches, when you call plays in a pattern as you did in the game (run,run,pass,kick) the other team knows whats coming. All that being said, Kamiakin was very impressive and I wont take aay anything from their win because they were great. that QB can flat throw the football and that running back can flat run the football. Plus Kelso had a great season and I felt they really did over achieve. It was fun to watch my Hilanders this season and I will be the first to congradulate them on a great season. Way to make Kelso proud boys!!! Go Scots!!….I think a coching change is needed even though i do love coach Hymes, your time is done my friend!

    Im just curious as to how Kamiakin looked in comparison to Camas. 50-0 in the third Qt. tells me they are for real. I’d like some honest feedback from folks who saw the game. there is some talk that Kmaiakin may be the darkhorse of the tournament.

  3. hilander4life on November 14th, 2010 6:32 pm

    Kamiakin could beat Camas for sure. if theyplayed it would be close, but they could definetly beat camas. they can throw run and catch. they may have a high powered offense ut their defense is their weakest link but they are still good. I could see this team going far. I was at the game I know what I saw. They are a very good football team

    Can’t always blame the coach, sometimes you just don’t have the horses.

  5. air-it-out on November 14th, 2010 8:11 pm

    hilander4life you sound an awful lot alike scotty4life who gets on here and trys to act what they are talking about. The only reason your complaining about the coaching is because of the blowout. That team was just flat out better than kelso, offensively kelso just lacked the ability to make plays. It was NOT a lack of being prepared! They were just out skilled and that happens sometimes. It was a great run and a great season! And time for a coaching change? GET REAL! Coach Hymes is doing a great job with that program. Maybe some of the assistants need to go (like the one that was absent from the game saturday) and maybe a couple others. Coach Hymes is doing a great job and we are proud to have him leading our Hilanders! Dont forget that just last year he was the 4a coach of the year with a very solid group of kids that i believe would have been a heck of a game against Kamaiakin. That team really should have been 8-1 and making a good playoff run..

  6. air-it-out on November 14th, 2010 10:05 pm

    And another thing, the kids were not out on the town in kenniwik, they had meetings at 9 that night after they had dinner and a little time to hang out AT THE HOTEL then they went to bed. Dont try to say things and make them look bad when you have no clue what you are talking about.

  7. Touchet on November 14th, 2010 11:28 pm

    Kelso didn’;t have the horsepower this year, to go any further is that bad? no, they played as hard as they could, you must remember they were playing one of the top programs in the state, let alone the big nine conference, look at the history of the Big Nine they can flat out play yr after yr top to bottom.

  8. hilander4life on November 15th, 2010 9:00 pm

    Air-it-out pay attention his system is outdated and needs to change. Plus I was one of the Seniors on last years team and know what went on so dont go preaching to this choir. This team did play hard all season and WAS ill prepared in this game. did you even go see it or are you going off what people have said? I have a clue what happened. I didnt say they were out on the town stupid, re-read what I said. They may have been in their rooms but since I know ALL of the players I had a few tell me what happened. Don’t ever tell me what I do or don’t know. Yeah Kamiakin was good and probably would have won anyways I didnt deny that. Plus I have complained about the coaching long befor the blowout. Even the wins I have disliked the coaching. You made what I said into a slamfest against the entire team and that isn’t what I did. I ONLY SLAMMED THE COACHING STAFF!!!!!!! before you criticize something know what you actually read

  9. hilander4life on November 15th, 2010 9:01 pm

    and talk to anyone who has played in the program the past few seasons or is close to it in any way. They all say the same thing I do.

  10. hilander4life on November 15th, 2010 9:05 pm

    when you run the same pattern of plays and the same plays over and over you get predictable and easily stoppable. It is time to go spread or pistol cause that is what is being run now a days. we need someone who doesnt lean on the power run up the middle for 90% of the game.

  11. scotty_dawg71 on November 15th, 2010 9:11 pm

    hilander4life is correct I am affraid. a change is needed but I dont know who would come in and take the place of the Legendary coach Hymes. None of the current coaches that is for sure. And Air-it-out read what he said again because hilander4life didn’t write what you say he did. Like I said I agree with what he had to say. Air-it-out you made some valid points as well you are right they were out skilled as well as not prepared. you both had some validity to your arguments

  12. Scotty4life on November 15th, 2010 9:19 pm

    Air-it-out Hilander4life is not me but I do know who it is him and I were on last seasons team together and are good friends. and I do have to say you are an Idiot who has no clue what you are talking about.

  13. scotty_dawg71 on November 15th, 2010 9:42 pm

    HAHA GOSH I LOVE THIS SITE!!!! air-it-out,hilander4life,scotty4life, you all sound like interesting people. you guys make compelling arguments. Kamiakin was good and would have won anyway, there needs to be a coaching change (yes it’s true),Kelso was out skilled and not prepared which made for a disastrous game, and It was a great season which you all agreed on. so I would say you are both correct in some repects. Also, knowing high school kids they probably stayed up in their rooms and didnt get much sleep because I did notice they looked tired and sluggish. but all in all it was a great season the boys played hard and now they are done. GREAT JOB KELSO!!!!!!

  14. Hilander Athlete on November 16th, 2010 12:27 am

    As a senior on last years team you should be FLAT OUT EMBARRESED to bash coach hymes! You more than anybody should be backing him knowing all the things that he did for us and stuck his neck out for us. He did EVERYTHING he can for us as football players and as people! This is absolutely rediculous for you to be saying anything about the coaching staff. The offense works, it worked for us we ran the veer and power run game and we were very successful. There has been alot of balance the last couple years. Coach Hymes did everything for us and i am embarresed to say that you were one of my teamates if you have the nerve to get on here and talk the way you are about Coach Hymes and the rest of the staff. You know all the great things that happens inside that program that people on the outside cant see. Idk if you are upset about the playing time you got or something but you SHOULD NOT be on here bashing coach hymes. Its just rediculous! And ill prepared??? Name ONE game that we were EVER ill prepared for in our career! They got beat on saturday because of kamiakin being the better team not because of the coaching staff. And you are making no sense on the staying in kenniwik thing, the kids were in bed at a good time and in their rooms to go to sleep. if they didnt go to bed and stayed up messing around that is the KIDS fault, NOT the coaches! These kids are high schoolers, the coaches arent going to hold their hands and be their mommys to get them to go to sleep. If they were sluggish thats the kids problem. I would have died to have the opportunity to go play in that game and get to stay in the hotel and go take care of business. That is in NO way the coaches fault… And everybody uses the spread or pistol? First of all those are the same thing. Secondly, NO they dont! Look across the river at the team in the state quaterfinals. MM doesnt run the spread. Look athe Pac 10, two of the top teams in that confrence dont run the spread, Stanford and USC. Some other top schools across the nation include#7 Wisconsin, #8 Nebraska, #12 Alabama, and all three of those schools revolve around the power run game. And last time i checked those coaches and players are at a much higher level than we are. Bellvue doesnt run the spread and they are about as legit as they come in high school football. So before you go popping off about the offensive system do a little research and maybe actually understand the game. Get off Coach Hymes, especially after being in the system! Weird that he just won the coach of the year award last year, you must obviously know more than the people that decide on the award huh? Keep up the great work coach! We all back and believe in you! Thanks for everything you did for us and congrats on the great season!!

    Great season Hilanders!!!! Heck of a run. Coaches and players exceeded expectations. Made the town proud. Kamaikin is good. By far the best team we faced all season. I will be VERY surprised if they dont win state.

  16. air-it-out on November 16th, 2010 11:48 am

    Well said hilander athlete, you nailed it right on the head. And yes I was at the game Saturday, I haven’t missed a game since 2003. I have seen the way you act at the games and the way you played. You DO NOT know more than coach hymes!! And also, Union is a non spread offense team that is very successful

  17. MVHS Athlete on November 16th, 2010 12:06 pm

    Union practically ran the spread last year. They cant really be classified as anything because they adjust to the personal on a yearly basis

  18. air-it-out on November 16th, 2010 12:55 pm

    Union was in the spread just as much as Kelso uses it. They are still more of a power run game team or playaction team. As well as Mt. View.

  19. cody on November 16th, 2010 8:07 pm

    I agree with Hilander Athlete and air-it-out

  20. air-it-out on November 17th, 2010 1:44 pm

    Speaking of that team from last year… How are the three kids plain college football doing?(Davison, Sari, Margaris) And garrett Austin is playing basketball at LCC correct?

Got something to say?
