Unfazed by a double-overtime win over Chiawana a week ago, the Kamiakin High School football team rushed for more than 220 yards in a 59-0 blowout victory over the Pasco Bulldogs on Friday at Edgar Brown Stadium.
Talmage Jacobson led the way for the Braves’ ground attack as he picked up 97 yards on his 14 carries and scored on two short runs in the first quarter. Freshman Tuna Altahir carried it seven times for 55 yards and scored his third touchdown of the season with 30 seconds remaining in the first half.
Payton Flynn found Champ Grayson four times for 122 yards, including on two of his three touchdown passes. Flynn threw the ball only 13 times, but completed nine of those passes for 169 yards before yielding to Lucas Castilleja and the second-teamers in the second half.
Backup running back George Ramirez punched in two touchdowns in the fourth quarter for Kamiakin (4-0, 2-0) with the clock already running.
