Notes: The Grizzlies nightmare season continued last week, as they were rolled up by the Braves. They managed just 83 yards of offense against Kamiakin, while turning the ball over three times. ... Things dont figure to get much better tonight against the Lions. ... Kennewick has also opened 0-3 and has not been competitive in any of the games, but figure to get healthy tonight. ... The Lions size up front will give Sunnyside problems, and Kennewick has been pretty good against the run so far. The Lions are giving up 157 yards per game on the ground, which isnt the best in the Mid-Col, but it will be enough to stop Sunnyside. ... QB Tennancour was knocked out of last weeks game against Southridge. If he cant play tonight, backup Josh Kutzke a junior would get the nod. In limited time this season, Kutzke is 6-for-15 for 38 yards with an interception.
Prediction: Kennewick 27, Sunnyside 6
