Kamiakin shuts out Eastmont in season opener

Braves Rebound, Crush Pasco 56-6

KAMIAKIN 56, PASCO 6: Jethro Questad ran for 86 yards and three touchdowns, and Zach Borisch threw for 260 yards and three TDs to lead the Braves over the Bulldogs at Lampson Stadium.

The win came one week after the Braves suffered a 35-13 loss to Chiawana.

“This was a much better performance by us,” Kamiakin coach Scott Biglin said. “You never know how kids are going to respond. We had a good week of practice, and it showed on the field Friday night.”

The Braves (3-1, 1-1 MCC) led 21-0 in the second quarter before Pasco’s Jacob Sandoval returned a fumble 33 yards for a touchdown.

Deondre Hendrix led the Bulldogs (0-4, 0-2) with 68 rushing yards, and Keaton Stewart passed for 94.
