Big Game Looms

Cross-town rivals square off with playoff berth on the line

By Jack Millikin, Herald staff writer

For the last 14 years, the Kennewick Lions and Southridge Suns have put pride and sweat on the line in their cross-town football rivalry.

This year the stakes are a little higher, however, as both teams remain in the fight for one of the four 3A regional playoff spots on Friday, Nov. 5.

The Suns (3-4, 3-2 CBBN 3A) will take on the Lions (5-2, 3-2) at 7:30 p.m. today at Lampson Stadium.

A win for Southridge clinches a regional berth, but a Kennewick win -- along with a Pasco win -- means a Week 9 showdown against the Bulldogs at Edgar Brown Stadium for the final playoff spot.

"First, it's Kennewick versus Southridge. Playoffs aside, it means a lot to both sides," Lions coach Bill Templeton said. "We both want to go out and perform well."

The Lions offense set the tone on the first drive of the game as they marched over 70 yards on 10 plays to go up 7-0.

Loftus rolled out to the left after a bad snap and put a 20-yard pass on the money to Devven Ramos in the end zone -- the first of many big plays he would make on this night.
