Cameron Simpson scored two-fourth quarter touchdowns to lead the Richland Bombers to a 20-14 nonleague win Friday over Post Falls, Idaho at Fran Rish Stadium.
Trailing 14-7 in the fourth, Simpson scored on a 1-yard run, and the PAT from Josh Garza tied the game at 14.
With 5 minutes left in the game, Simpson broke free for a 40-yard score to give the Bombers a 20-14 lead.
“Simpson is one of our main guys and we count on him to do good things,” Richland coach Mike Neidhold said. “We were three-and-out most of the third and fourth quarters, but late in the game he put together two big scores.”
Never miss a local story.
Josh Phillips scored on a 50-yard run to open the scoring for the Bombers in the first quarter, only to see Post Falls score once in the second and once in third to take the lead.
“The defense made some critical stops when they had to,” Neidhold said. “It was a real rough, physical football game. It was rugged out there. It was a very clean game by a very good program up there. They played hard and were well coached. It was a fun game to play in.”
