Notes: The Riverhawks opened the season with a dominating victory against the Falcons last week, holding Hanford to just nine rushing yards. ... Chiawana, which struggled at times last season, appears to be primed to have its best team since the school opened. ... On paper, the Riverhawks should cruise tonight, though Kennewick’s physical defensive line will be offer a good matchup. ... The Lions struggled mightily to move the ball in their season opener, finishing with just 93 yards of offense. Despite that they led 10-6 at halftime. ... A major question for Kennewick will be depth this season, as many of its best players start both ways. Last week saw QB Tennancour and OL/DL Jacob Meise going down with leg cramps throughout the second half. They need both players healthy to be successful.

Prediction: Chiawana 38, Kennewick 14
