Notes: The Falcons have put in a new offense this season, switching to a spread option. Hanford rushed for just nine yards in the loss to Chiawana, but the Falcons graduated nearly their entire offensive line and are still learning the new system. ... Enderlin had a solid debut under center for Hanford, though his yardage total was boosted by a 99-yard touchdown reception by Tyler Cowen. ... Kamiakin got revenge for an overtime loss to Prosser a year ago, dominating the Mustangs at Art Fiker Stadium last week. ... Robertson wasn’t the sharpest he has ever been, but he rushed for two touchdowns to go with throwing another. ... Ramizov missed time last season, but when healthy he can be a handful for opposing defenses. He had a monster game against Prosser, scoring twice and averaging 8.1 yards per carry. ... The Braves were almost perfectly balanced a week ago, rushing for 174 yards and passing for 173.
Prediction: Kamiakin 28, Hanford 14
