Media: Kennewick @ Hermiston Recap - Eastern Oregonian

The Hermiston Bulldogs were pulled back to earth Friday night by the Kennewick Lions.

After winning their first two Mid-Columbia Conference games, the Bulldogs dropped a 26-25 game to the Lions. A chance to win the game late was foiled by as a bad snap on a 38-yard field goal by Juan Carlos Navarrete with 50.2 seconds left on the clock gave Kennewick its first win of the season at Kennison Field.

“That’s part of football,” Hermiston coach David Faaeteete said. “We didn’t do a good job of bouncing back after a big win over Richland last week. Kennewick is a good football team and they came to play.”

The Lions, who blocked two PATS, recorded a safety, and ran a fake punt for a touchdown, scored with 4:13 left in the fourth quarter to take a 26-25 lead.

“We needed every play today,” Kennewick coach Bill Templeton said. “We just beat a good football team. I couldn’t be more proud of our boys.”

Kennewick freshman Myles Mayovsky, who ran for 169 yards on the night, scored the final touchdown, and Ethan Woolery put the PAT though the uprights for the one-point lead.

“He has been the man since he was 5 years old,” Templeton said of Mayovsky.

Trailing 13-10 at the half, the Lions turned a fourth-and-6 at the Hermiston 48 into a fake punt. Talon LaFontaine connected with Blaine Chavez for a touchdown and a 17-13 lead.

Wyatt Noland, who ran for 120 yards on the night, picked up 25 for a Bulldogs’ touchdown on the ensuing possession, but a blocked PAT left Hermiston with a 19-17 lead.

With 9:47 remaining in regulation, the Lions took down Andrew James in the end zone to tie the score at 19.

Hermiston went back out front 25-19 as James ran the ball in from 13 yards out. The Bulldogs went for two, put the pass failed.

“That’s the way football goes,” Faaeteete said. “Our kids will be hungry next week (at Walla Walla). We will learn from our loss and poor execution. This is just a bump in the road.”

The Bulldogs took a 13-10 lead at the half with both teams getting big yardage out of their signature backs.

Hermiston’s Noland ran for 84 yards on 10 carries, and helped set up the Bulldogs’ first touchdown, a 21-yard pass from James to Jordan Ramirez 3 1/2 minutes into the game.

Mayovsky, who had 94 yards in the first half, had two runs of 14 yards on Kennewick’s first drive that put the Lions in the red zone.

JJ Rodriguez ran the ball in from 10 yards out for a 7-7game with 4:37 left in the first.

The Bulldogs struck once again in the first to take a 13-7 lead.

After Kennewick turned the ball over on downs deep in its own end, Hermiston scored two plays later as James connected with Youbani Razon for a 10-yard scoring pass. The kicked was block.

The Lions came back with a 27-yard field goal from Ethan Woolery to pull within 13-10.

Lions Notch First Win 26-25 over Hermiston

Kennewick 26, Hermiston 25: Freshman Myles Mayovsky ran for 169 yards and a touchdown, and the Lions got big plays on special teams and defense in the MCC victory.

Kennewick blocked two extra points and scored on a fake punt, and kicker Ethan Woolery converted his three PATs and connected on a 27-yard field goal. The Lions defense scored a safety to start the fourth quarter.

Hermiston QB Andrew James threw for a pair of scores and ran for another, racking up 244 yards of offense.

The Bulldogs had a shot at a 38-yard field goal with 50 seconds left, but a bad snap spoiled the opportunity.

Kennewick quarterback is making up for lost time

He missed nearly all last season. This Kennewick quarterback is making up for lost time

After a strong sophomore season in 2016 in which he ran for 10 touchdowns and passed for another 16 as Kennewick’s quarterback, A.J. broke his ankle in the 2017 season opener against Prosser.

His season was lost.

“It was a very tough year,” said his father, Bill Templeton, who also happens to be Kennewick’s head football coach. “He almost got to come back last year against Shadle Park (in the regional playoff crossover). He was running with no pain. But on the second to last play the night before we played the game, he goofed it up again running out of bounds.”

This season, as a senior, A.J. Templeton is making up for lost time.

“I definitely feel like I have to play for two seasons,” he admitted.

When football — something you love to play with all of your heart — has been taken away, you learn to appreciate it.

“It’s one of the only sports where legally you can hit someone and not get into trouble,” said A.J., who will also play in the defensive secondary this season besides quarterbacking. “I love the strategy to it. It’s the ultimate team sport, and it feels like a brotherhood.”

He learned to love the game at an early age.

His father was a star running back in the mid-1980s for legendary coach Ed Troxel at Kennewick High. His grandfather is the equally legendary Craig Beverlin, the former longtime head coach at Kamiakin.

“We were doing throwing drills when he was 3,” said Bill Templeton.

The whole father-son dynamic with dad as head coach and son as star athlete has been handled by both with grace.

“First of all, he is just a quality person,” said Bill. “He’s fun to be around. But it’s a strange dynamic sometimes. I’ll get after him when he doesn’t do something correct with his footwork. He’s told me he calls me ‘Coach’ when he’s mad at me.”

That happens rarely now, admits A.J.

“I feel in terms of our relationship, we don’t let what happens on the field affect us,” he said. “When I was younger, I felt I had to prove myself to my teammates more than maybe I needed to. But now, we’re just teammates first.”

Sometimes time gives a better perspective.

What hasn’t changed is the son knows the football X’s and O’s like the back of his hand.

“I know the offense pretty well,” said A.J. “I know what the linemen, all receivers and running backs are supposed to be doing on each play.”

The journey to get back on the football field after a lost 2017 was too long not to savor what happens this season.

“That was really hard,” A.J. admits. “I felt I kept positive through most of it. But it was hard to watch from the sidelines, watching everyone struggle and I couldn’t be on the field with them.”

But he put in the work.

“I had a lot of rehab,” he said. “I went to Elite Ambitions Training, which helped me a lot to get through rehab. It got my strength level back to where it needed to be.”

He got his weight up to 195, and turned out for track – which helped with his speed.

He now weighs 183 pounds, which should help him break tackles when he runs.

“His progress this summer was great,” said Bill. “He loves football. He’d like to go someplace like Whitworth. But when you lose your junior season, we don’t know what that does (for recruiting interest).”

A good postseason run with his Kennewick teammates should answer that question.


DL Jagger Childs was honorable mention All-MCC last season as a sophomore. He’s 6-foot-4, 210 pounds and getting interest from Washington State and Utah already. He’s also the son of Ron Childs, a former standout at running back and linebacker at Kamiakin, then a star linebacker at WSU before playing for the Tri-Cities Fever. Ron Child’s is also an assistant coach for Kennewick High. ... OL Baylor McElroy was honorable mention All-MCC last season as a sophomore. He has a twin brother, Baiden. Both are 6-5, and Baiden weighs 250 while Baylor is 260. Both should start on the line. … Seniors Danny Schuldheisz and Izaiah Canada should anchor the O-line. … A.J. Templeton will look to seniors Manny Flores and Talon LaFontaine as his main receiving targets. … Besides Childs, the Lions will have a number of other juniors starting on defense, including FS Blaine Chavez and LB Kaleb Stevenson. “Brayden McCarley is a hard-nosed senior and linebacker,” said Bill Templeton. … Cedric Riel and Moses McAninch, standouts last season, graduated and are playing for Eastern Oregon University.

KEHS v Pasco - TC Herald Video


Kennewick rolls Pasco, into postseason with Kamiakin win over Southridge

Offensively, a maligned Kennewick unit moved the ball at will against Pasco’s defense. The offensive line blasted open truck-sized gaps up front, and fullback JJ Rodriguez (nine carries for 82 yards) and tailback Cedric Riel (10 carries, 55 yards, three touchdowns) took advantage.

“It’s very exciting,” said Riel, a senior. “Our season took a huge, positive turn last week, and it’s all about just carrying that momentum into next week. This is probably the last game I’m going to play in this stadium, and it couldn’t have gone any better.”

With the running game picking up yards in chunks, quarterback Tim Gee had his best game of the season. The junior completed 10 of 16 passes for 122 yards, with no interceptions, and found Zenon Thornton 3 times for 63 yards, which included a 21-yard scoring strike

The victory kept Kennewick alive for the conference’s second and final 3A postseason berth. The Lions (3-6, 2-5) needed No. 5 Kamiakin (7-1, 5-1) to beat Southridge (3-5, 2-4) later Thursday to clinch their spot.


The Kennewick High School football team came into Thursday night’s matchup against Pasco with a goal in mind: Stop the run.

Mission accomplished.

The Lions defense only allowed Pasco’s feature running back Efrain Farias to four carries of more than four yards — just one before the subs entered in the fourth quarter — as he finished with 74 yards on 22 totes, and Kennewick took down Pasco 35-7 in a must-win, MCC season finale game at Lampson Stadium.

“Coach (Oliver) Browning and the rest of the defensive staff worked very, very hard this week,” Kennewick coach Bill Templeton said. “Our kids are more and more and more starting to learn our scheme and our fits, our coverages. We’re doing things at the right time.”

Kennewick beat Southridge 12-7 last week to stay in playoff contention

“It’s the first win streak of the year,” Templeton said. “We’ll enjoy it right now, then get back to work tomorrow. We’re Braves fans for the next 3 hours or so, and we’ll see what happens.”

As poor as the result turned out to be for the Bulldogs (0-9, 0-7), they started the game with a flurry.

Kennewick received the opening kickoff and drove into Pasco territory on just three plays, but Jose Moreno-Gudino stripped the ball on a run by Rodriguez, and Farias recovered to change possession. Pasco then drove 69 yards in 8 minutes, 30 seconds, with Kason Tate hitting on 5 of 5 passes for 56 yards and finding Brandon Scott on a 6-yard fade route to take a 7-0 lead.

“I feel after the first drive we kind of woke up,” said Kennewick defensive lineman and fullback Moses McAninch, who finished with two tackles for loss and three catches for 26 yards. “Playing Thursday at 5 ain’t the best feeling, but I feel like that woke us up a bit. We got the run in check, which forced them to rely on the pass more, screens and such.”

Tate struggled from there, completing just one of seven passes for 2 yards and a pick to close the half, and the Lions scored 28 unanswered points to take a three-touchdown lead into the locker room that would never be threatened.

Riel popped his third touchdown of the game in, from 4 yards out, with 11 minutes to play, which capped the scoring and turned out to be the only points of the second half.

Tate finished the game with 141 yards on 20 of 34 passing, but was intercepted by Tucker Newman, Emilio Ramos and Joey Garza.

Kennewick ekes past Southridge 12-7, still alive for postseason berth

Members of the Kennewick Lions football team knew how big their 12-7 Mid-Columbia Conference victory over Southridge was on Friday night.

That explains the revelry in the locker room afterward at Lampson Stadium, with players dancing, singing to music and generally howling at the moon.

“It’s the playoffs for us,” said Lions coach Bill Templeton.

Southridge entered Friday’s game with a 2-3 MCC record (3-4 overall), while Kennewick was 0-5 MCC (1-6 overall).

The Suns just needed a win over the Lions to clinch the MCC’s No. 2 Class 3A berth for the upcoming crossover playoff with the Greater Spokane League.

Didn’t happen.

The Lions still need to beat Pasco next Thursday at 5 p.m. — part of a rescheduled Thursday night doubleheader at Lampson Stadium, with Kamiakin hosting Southridge at 8 — but they have the inside track to the playoffs now.

The win didn’t come easy for Kennewick, which trailed 7-0 at intermission, thanks to a 9-yard Mason Perez TD run.

But it could have been much worse. The Lions fumbled the football away three times in the first half. But the Kennewick defensive unit stood tough. Southridge had the ball inside the red zone three times in the first half and failed to come away with a score of any kind.

“We chose to go with the wind in the third quarter,” said Southridge coach Aaron Sonichsen. “We thought we could put it in the end zone a few more times and put them away. But we didn’t get it done.”

The Lions defense continued to play well.

“Coach (Oliver) Browning (the Lions’ defensive coordinator) did a great job with the game plan,” said Templeton. “And the kids made plays.”

Starting with Cedric Riel. The Lions senior starred on both sides of the ball, rushing for 121 yards on 23 carries, and making nine tackles, breaking up a pass, and intercepting another pass.

“This is the best,” said Riel, looking around the locker room at his teammates celebrating. “This is my last season of football and it’s do or die. Offensively, we wanted to get run production.”

Kennewick got some when Riel scored in the third quarter on a 12-yard run, but the Lions couldn’t convert the extra-point kick to still trail 7-6.

It took a huge play by teammate Emilio Ramos to get Kennewick over the hump late in the game.

With just under 6 minutes to play, the Suns had the ball at their own 3 heading into a constant 20 mph headwind that sometimes gusted up to 30 mph.

Trying to be cautious, the Suns tried running the ball, handing it to Hayden Brimberry — who had a strong performance with 68 yards rushing.

But Ramos, playing linebacker, shot in from the outside as the defense strung the play out on a sweep.

“One of my teammates had him wrapped up, so I came up and just ripped at the ball,” said Ramos.

It came out at the 4. Ramos picked it up and rambled into the end zone for the go-ahead score.

“Ramos didn’t practice all week,” said Templeton. “He had some leg problems.”

That happened with 5:22 to play.

The Suns got one last shot with 1:31 to play. But they were back at their own 16.

Lions defensive lineman Moses McAninch sacked Perez back at the 8, then almost got Perez for a safety on an incomplete pass.

Suddenly, Perez settled down, moving the offense down the field with a calm demeanor — and into the wind. Key passes to Brimberry for 11 yards, and tosses of 11 and 15 yards to Peyton Monson, found the Suns at the Lions 15 with 1.4 seconds left.

Perez rolled out and fired to the right corner of the end zone, where Eric Stayrook was headed. The ball landed in a diving Stayrook’s hands amidst three Kennewick defensive backs. But when the Southridge senior came down, he couldn’t hold onto the football, and the Lions’ celebration began.

The Suns could still advance to the postseason if they can beat Kamiakin on Thursday and Kennewick loses to Pasco.

“Football is a microcosm of life,” said Sonnichsen. “How do you respond after this? And the way you respond says a lot about you.”

For Templeton and his Lions, they control their own destiny now.

“Our senior leadership came through,” said Templeton. “We can make a little noise.”


Whoever comes out as the MCC No. 2 will travel to Spokane on Oct. 31 — a Tuesday — to play the GSL No. 2 team for a chance to play in the state regionals. ... A key play that worked in the second half for the Lions was faking the handoff to Riel on the Fly Sweep, then handing it off to fullback JJ Rodriguez on the dive. He finished with 61 yards rushing. ... Monson had six catches for 50 yards for the Suns. ... Lions LB Isaac Ruiz added 9 tackles (one for loss), while McAninch had 5 tackles (one for loss), a QB sack, and a hurry. ... Bond, playing LB for the Suns, had 7 tackles and a forced fumble. Monson and Eddie Korotkov had 5 tackles each.

Kennewick, Walla Walla seek 1st MCC win in doubleheader nightcap at Lampson

The only MCC game of the week featuring two teams without a league win figures to be a competitive one as the Kennewick High School football team hosts Walla Walla on Friday in the nightcap of a Lampson Stadium doubleheader.

The Lions (1-2, 0-1) got steamrolled by 2016 Class 4A state runner-up Richland last week, 48-7, but showed a flash of what they hope to do well this season, run the ball, when Cedric Riel burst through the line for a 97-yard touchdown scamper in the first quarter for Kennewick’s only score of the game. The ground game figures to get a shot in the arm this week as junior running back AJ Templeton — who hurt his ankle in a Week 1 loss to Prosser — is expected to return to the Lions’ backfield Friday.

Walla Walla (0-3, 0-1) has struggled mightily on offense this season, ranking in the bottom two spots of the league in most offensive categories, and not getting its first touchdown of the season until Darin Ongers 65-yard rushing score against Hanford last week. When Walla Walla has had success this season, it’s been on the ground, but that could be tough to sustain against a Kennewick defense that is allowing an MCC-low 84.3 rushing yards per contest.

Weinmann shines in Prosser’s victory over Kennewick

Though the game was marred by some typical Week 1 troubles — penalties, missed assignments, miscommunications — the Prosser High School football team saw exactly what it wanted in its 22-14 win Friday night over Kennewick at Lampson Stadium: a stellar performance from first-year starting quarterback Will Weinmann.

In the absence of 2017 graduate Tanner Bolt, the junior Weinmann completed 16 of 20 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown to lead the Mustangs to victory.

“There were the first series jitters, but it was good to get off to a fast start, get some points,” Weinmann said. “Also got to give a lot of credit to the O-Line, pushing ahead, and it helped us carry the momentum into the second half.”

The QB’s first start even drew praise from the opposing sideline.

“Their quarterback was very, very good, very efficient,” Kennewick coach Bill Templeton said. “That’s what Prosser does, they dink and dunk, and then they hit you over the top with a nice fade route. And he threw the fade very well today.”

einmann certainly didn’t have to do it all on his own. Senior running back JR Coleman, who was a contributor as a sophomore on the 2015 state championship team but was injured last season, carried it 24 times for 71 yards and scored a 2-yard touchdown to cap the Mustangs’ game-opening, 66-yard drive.

“We’re gonna rely on JR and his senior leadership, he’s been a tremendous back his whole career,” Prosser coach Corey Ingvalson said. “He probably got a few more carries than he was used to, as far as our offense goes, but he can handle that based on what the defense was giving us.”

Kennewick had some changes to deal with in the offensive backfield as well with 2016 quarterback AJ Templeton moving to running back and Tim Gee taking over as QB1 in his stead.

Templeton had his two biggest runs of the night called back because of holding, but he still gained 34 yards on 15 touches. He did however leave the game with a right ankle injury late in the fourth quarter and didn’t return. Linemen Austin Schoffstall and Braxton Brower also sustained injuries, both around halftime, that prevented them from returning to action.

Gee, a junior, struggled in the first half, completing just one pass — a 2-yard check down to running back Isaac Ruiz — on four attempts. But he settled in after halftime, finishing with 89 yards on 7-of-13 passing with a 1-yard rushing touchdown on the first drive of the second half, and a 12-yard TD pass to Emilio Ramos late in the fourth quarter.

“He especially had a good second half, and he did some nice things in the first half too,” Templeton said. “We’d get something going, and then shoot ourselves in the foot with a penalty or something like that.”

With its lead cut down to 8-6, Prosser answered Kennewick’s second-half-opening touchdown drive with one of its own, spanning 67 yards and ending with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Weinmann to Tyler Durbin. A pass from Weinmann to Coleman gave the Mustangs the 2-point conversion and a 16-6 lead with about a minute to go in the third.

The Mustangs added insurance when a fourth-quarter drive was extended by a muffed punt, eventually capitalizing with a 2-yard TD run by Kord Tuttle to stretch their lead to 22-6 with about 4 minutes remaining.

But the Lions still had some life, as Gee helped engineer a 61-yard drive that finished with his touchdown strike to Ramos. He then hit Zenon Thornton on the 2-point conversion to make it 22-14 and pull Kennewick within a possession with 2 minutes to go.

After Prosser recovered the onside kick, Kennewick stuffed Coleman on consecutive runs to force 3rd-and-long with plenty of time left. That was when Weinmann threw a jump ball up to wide out Will Thompson, and the junior brought it down for a 34-yard gain to put the game on ice.

“I’ve got faith in my wide receivers to make the catch and get us that first down to seal the game,” Weinmann said. “Which is good, you can count on them. (Thompson) has got great hands, and he’s put in a lot of work this summer to get better with his feet and hands, which is what you want as a quarterback.”

Prosser opened the season with a 28-7 win over Kennewick last year, and Ingvalson felt good about knocking off the Class 3A foe once again.

“Honestly, I’m ecstatic,” he said. “Our offseason was tremendous as far as commitment and guys working and being committed to each other. And for them to have this win and have it pay off here, it means a lot. Especially when we’re trying to keep that momentum going.”

  1. There are still a few of you without physicals.  You need to get those updated before you can participate in a practice.
  2. Reminder: MANDATORY PARENT MEETING with our AD, Ronny Coleman, this coming Thursday (June 2nd) in the Lion’s Den at 6:00 PM.
  3. Practice #1 – Tuesday, May 31st after school.  ALL LEVELS will meet on the fields at 6th and Dayton (formerly known as the “Freshmen Fields.” Helmets, shorts, cleats, practice jerseys.

Excited to see you all,

Coach Templeton
