Kamiakin clinches title share

Kamiakin clinches title share

By Kevin Anthony, Tri-City Herald

KENNEWICK -- It was a crowning night for the Kamiakin Braves, even if it wasn't a polished performance.

Then again, good teams know an ugly win counts the same as a flawless one.

Zach Umemoto ran for 171 yards and three touchdowns, the last two slamming down like hammer blows to Hanford's upset hopes, and the Braves held off a physical Falcons squad 28-14 on Thursday night.

The win under the lights at Lampson Stadium locked up at least a piece of a second consecutive CBBN 3A title for the Braves (8-0, 6-0) and the top seed heading into the playoffs.

"It's a good feeling," said Umemoto, drenched after a 28-carry night. "We just want to go back to the state (championship) game like last year."

The Braves -- ranked fourth in the state -- took advantage of three Hanford fumbles, all of which led to touchdowns, including K Perrins' 29-yard TD catch from Jason Hutchison in the first quarter after the Falcons gave back a Kamiakin fumble.

But the most costly was the last, coming early in the fourth quarter and the Falcons (3-5, 3-3) hip deep in a game many didn't expect to be this close.

Isaac Benard had just pulled the Falcons even at 14-all on a thrilling 91-yard run. The sophomore back tore through one tackler trying to strip the ball, then found nothing but green turf in front of him.

Kamiakin came back and drove 76 yards -- 47 of that on a hookup between Jesse Houser and Hutchison -- to the Hanford 4.

Umemoto plowed down to the 1 on his first carry, but the door slammed shut on the next two, with Falcons linebacker Cody Baldowski making a big hit on third down.

The third quarter ended, and the teams changed ends. It seemed to change the fortunes for Kamiakin, with Umemoto diving over the goal line on fourth down for the go-ahead score.

"I just had to keep driving," said Umemoto, who topped 900 yards rushing on the season. "I can't let them take me down on fourth down. If we didn't score, who knows what happens."

KTown Battle Goes To Braves

KENNEWICK -- There is smash-mouth football, and then there is "Pow! In your face, a fist to the teeth" football.

And somewhere on the other side of that, is Kennewick and Kamiakin football.

Zach Umemoto ran for 134 yards and crashed into the end zone two times, and Kamiakin's defense was at its blitzing best as the Braves took a physical, 14-6 decision off the rival Lions on Friday night before a packed house at Lampson Stadium.

A crowd near the 6,800 capacity watched a punishing game between two ranked, unbeaten teams -- even the coaches were limping after this one -- as Kamiakin (4-0, 2-0) remained on top of the CBBN 3A.

And this win came thanks to a ground-pounding attack that Umemotored on a late drive to put the game away.

"Unbelievable," said Joe Hunt, a member of the offensive line that cleared the way as well as an all-over-the-field defensive end and key special teams player. "This has got to be right up there next to the state championship game last year."

The Braves, state runners-up last year, couldn't pull free of Kennewick (3-1, 1-1) until Umemoto's 1-yard plunge with 1:48 to play.

The 10-play, 62-yard drive was all Umemoto, who was a gut punch to a defense that had traded blow-for-blow with the Braves.

"Those guys are pretty big, pretty strong," said Lions running back/corner Grant Woods, who came into the game averaging 11.2 yards per carry but was held to 22 on 10 touches. "We're smaller, but we have speed. But props to Umemoto."

Kamiakin punishes Pasco 42-12

PASCO -- Kamiakin's opening kickoff return -- a perfectly blocked 94-yard touchdown gallup by Jesse Houser -- was big.

Jason Hutchison's three touchdown passes of 48 yards or more was impressive.

Six touchdowns by six different players was a testament to the Braves' balanced offense.

But perhaps the most important aspect of Kamiakin's 42-14 CBBN 3A win over Pasco on Friday at Edgar Brown Stadium was this:

Drew Oord was back.

After serving a two-game suspension -- retroactive to last year's spring season -- for a violation of the student code, the Braves linebacker and fullback was in full seek-and-destroy mode against the Bulldogs.

When he wasn't making tackles (he led the team with eight), he was dishing out punishment on the kick return teams. When he wasn't firing out as a lead blocker for Zach Umemoto, he was carrying the ball himself.

And to add the finishing touches, he even scored Kamiakin's final touchdown on a 1-yard, third-quarter plunge.

"I was so excited to play. The whole day I couldn't really focus," said Oord, a two-way starter on the Braves' team that reached the 3A championship in 2010. "Sitting out was real tough. I felt more like I was letting the team down."

Braves Thump Chiefs

KENNEWICK -- Kamiakin may not have the flashy playmakers from a year ago, but that doesn't mean the Braves offense is any less impressive.

Junior quarterback Jason Hutchison made his home debut Friday in spectacular fashion and running back Zach Umemoto was strong once again, as the Braves ripped Moses Lake 37-21 in a nonleague matchup at Lampson Stadium.

"We don't have the big-play receivers, but we have a lot of players that do their job," Hutchison said. "We run the ball really well, and now we can go 50-50."

The Braves did a little bit of everything correctly offensively against Moses Lake, as Hutchison threw for four touchdowns and 210 yards. Umemoto chewed up 163 yards on the ground -- 121 in the second half -- and Jesse Houser added a 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
