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.
Bryan – Kamiakin
