Malik Slack rushed for 93 yards in the first half and Will Bishop scored on two long touchdown runs in the second half to lead Hanford to a 40-21 Mid-Columbia Conference win over Pasco at Fran Rish Stadium on Friday.
Hanford led just 6-0 after a sloppy first half in which the Falcons had two touchdowns including a 76-yard run by Slack called back.
But the Falcons took a 13-0 lead on Aaron Enderlin's 1-yard TD run with 9:10 left in the third quarter.
Pasco closed the gap to 13-7 when Roger Ingram Jr. made a tough diving catch along the sideline from Kolby Killoy for a 7-yard score with 4:03 left in the third quarter.
But four big plays put the game away for Hanford.
First, Bishop outran the Pasco secondary for a 65-yard TD run at the 3:15 mark of the third quarter.
Next, Elwood Davis rumbled 36 yards to score with 16 seconds left in the third.
Then, Tyler Cowan hauled in an 87-yard TD from Enderlin with 9:37 left in the fourth quarter.
After Pasco's Cole Kelley caught the first of his two fourth-quarter TD passes from Killoy, Bishop finished Hanford's scoring with a 55-yard TD run with 5:49 left in the game.
Kelley scored Pasco's final touchdown on an acrobatic catch at the goal line with just under a minute left.
