Lions Rolling

Kennewick rolls in big win over Eastmont

By Kevin Anthony, Tri-City Herald

KENNEWICK -- The Kennewick Lions turned one of sports' oldest axioms on its head Friday night, proving that a bad practice makes perfect.

A sloppy effort midweek had coach Bill Templeton spitting fire, which in turn fired up the Lions and led to a 41-0 rout of the Eastmont Wildcats in the CBBN 3A opener for both teams at Lampson Stadium.

"If you've ever seen Coach Templeton mad ... I tell you what," said Kennewick receiver Reggie Clinton, who had two big catches and two nice punt returns in a perfect first half of football for the Lions.

Kennewick (3-0) did all of its scoring in the first half, converting all six possessions into touchdowns. Quarterback Bryce Leavitt was 8-for-9 for 208 yards and four touchdowns: 50 and 22 yards to Chase Reining, 40 yards to Clinton and 10 to Brock Schuh.

Garrett Woods and Bodie Simpson each ran for a score, Woods racking up 103 yards on six carries as the Lions outgained Eastmont (0-3) 351-69 in the first two quarters.

"You see that scoreboard -- that shows it all right there," Clinton said. "That's hard work and dedication right there."

"Did you see that first play?" he asked, referring to Woods' 50-yard sprint through a gaping hole. "That doesn't happen if Ivan Diaz doesn't do his job, if Jarrod Howell doesn't do his job, Garrett Wilz, Jarod Gonzales, T.J. Fields."

Kennewick roar past Pendleton 53-6

By Kevin Anthony, Tri-City Herald

KENNEWICK -- It is no easy task figuring out the MVP of Kennewick's 53-6 drubbing of the Pendleton Buckaroos in the Lions' season opener Friday night at Lampson Stadium.

Is it Grant Woods, who ran for 104 yards and three touchdowns on nine first-half carries and provided some serious "stick 'em" from his cornerback spot?

Is it big-play 'backer Devven Ramos, who returned a fumble 50 yards for a defensive score and rumbled 57 yards for an offensive one?

The offensive line, which sealed off the running lanes for big gains; the defense, which picked off three passes, got the fumble and added three sacks and two more tackles for loss?

Or maybe it was the running clock, which made the second half fly by.

Kennewick Lions

Kennewick, under new coach Kelly Munson, is looking to be more competitive than its 1-13 showing from last season.

“Getting them to commit has been a priority,” Munson said. “We have been focusing on effort, communication and technique. We are setting up a new offense and I still don’t have a solid libero, yet.”

The Lions return honorable mention all-conference OH Breanna Shaffer, along with OH Monica Kaylor, who averaged a little more than 10 kills a match last year. Both are juniors.
