Kamiakin dismantles Lewis and Clark 42-0

In a game that seemed over just as it began, the Kamiakin Braves invaded Joe Albi Friday and quickly set about taming the Lewis and Clark Tigers.

Kamiakin ended the LC’s first drive after seven plays before the Braves started dominating. It ended with a 42-0 pasting of the Tigers, who had several players miss the game because of disciplinary issues.

“It was a tough night,” said LC coach Dave Hughes, who wouldn’t comment about how many players missed the game. “We are a young football team. We are going to have to grow up.”

Early in the game and facing a fourth-and-1, Kamiakin’s Jethro Questad ran through and then around the defense for a 62-yard touchdown scamper. And the rout was on.

Lewis and Clark went three-and-out before punting to Champ Grayson. Let’s just say that was a bad idea. Grayson returned the punt 44 yards for a touchdown and the Tigers were down 14-0 with less than 7 minutes into the game.

“Hats off to those kids,” Kamiakin coach Scott Biglin said. “I know they were down, but they made us fight for every one of those 42 points.”

The Tigers finally got a break when a screen pass from Michael Flaherty to Cameron Duncan broke free for an 84-yard gain. However, Duncan was ruled down at the 1-yard line.

Kamiakin then stuffed LC runners four straight times and took over on their own 1-yard line and marched 99 yards. The drive ended when Braves quarterback Zach Borsch hit Benson Smith for a 6-yard touchdown pass.

Borsch later hit Smith again for a 13-yard score to make it 28-0. Lewis and Clark did make a drive just before halftime, but Sam Hufnagel’s 45-yard field-goal attempt didn’t come close.

Kamiakin added touchdown passes to Darreon Moore and Grayson to complete the scoring. The Braves outgained the Tigers 458-155 and held a 20-6 advantage in first downs.

“Kamiakin was a very good football team,” Hughes said. “They are legit.”
