November 15, 2014 - PASCO, WASH. -  The Chiawana Riverhawks (10-1, 7-0) and the A.C. Davis Pirates (Yakima) (9-2, 5-1) come together at Edgar Brown Memorial Stadium to compete for the opportunity to continue in the playoffs. Chiawana brings the state's best offense and defense. The Pirates enjoy their best season in school history, and bring a confusing, athletic defense. Nerves may be a factor, and who knows what challenges the contest will bring. The very air itself is an obstacle, as the chill is immediate and relentless.

Davis begins play at their 20. An incomplete pass on first down, and then a run sets the Pirates up for a sack on the next down. The drive stalls, and the Pirates punt the pigskin.
Chiawana starts just on the Davis side of midfield. The mighty Chiawana Riverhawks begin their bread-and-butter campaign - the ground-and-pound - with a purpose. The 'Hawks get a couple of first downs on their first three plays. They throw it a couple of times, to no avail. Back to the run. Lining up for the punt, Chiawana fakes it, and the run attempt falls a few yards short. Turnover on downs.
The Pirates keep it on the ground, starting at their 24. After gaining a first, they put it in the air. They manage to pick up a first down, and then the drive falls apart around the 41. Davis punts.
The Riverhawks begin play at their own 33. The mighty Chiawana Riverhawks lay down the law, and pound two runs for 67 yards and a touchdown. An explosive result of perfected timing, mature instincts, trust in one another, knowledge of the game and fortitude, all combined in a dynamic demonstration of destined determination. This is one reason why the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks are mighty.
With 4:28 left in the first quarter, the extra point makes it 7-0, Chiawana.
The Davis Pirates start their drive from their own 20. One run play, followed by another. On the second down, the Pirates fumble, and an alert defender scoops the ball, then blazes into pay dirt. Fifty-two seconds after scoring, the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks put another seven on the board. With 3:36 left, the score is now 14-0.
The best defense in the state showed up and wrecked any thoughts or ideas of changing this rank and status. This is another reason why the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks are mighty.
The Pirates start at their 20. Three plays, and minus twelve yards later, they punt.
Chiawana starts in good shape at their 43. A squirrely defensive alignment keeps the 'Hawks guessing, as the Pirates keep the run in check. Chiawana punts to end the quarter.

End of 1st Quarter - Score: Riverhawks 14, Kennewick 0 

Post-punt, the Pirates are pinned seven yards parallel to their pylons. The Pirates profoundly prefer the pass, and proceed to persist. The plan  is plundered, and the Pirates punt.
The Riverhawks once again begin around midfield. The 'Hawks mix up the plays a bit, but that pesky Pirate pressure on defense keeps the 'Hawks grounded. Chiawana punts.
Davis is trapped back at their own 9. They start safely on the ground, and control the ball for a first down around their 24. A negative run, and a couple of incomplete passes put the Pirates at a 4th and 12. The Pirates punt.
Once again Chiawana has magnificent field position near midfield. A pass and a nice run sets up a first down at the Davis 32. A penalty sets the 'Hawks back, and a few plays later they fumble.
Davis starts at their own 38. A run gains another 14. After a penalty sets them back five, the persistent Pirates pound pay dirt for six. The extra point makes the score 14-7, with 3:50 left in the half.
Chiawana starts at their 38. Their second play is a run for about half of the distance of a football field. Their fourth play is a fumble.
The pugnacious Pirates persevere, and their drive starts with a run. The Davis luck was not to last, however, as a Pirate pass is picked, and those mighty Chiawana Riverhawks take possession 31 yards from the end zone. The result is predictable. The 'Hawks were not to be denied, and a nifty pass and run combination puts another six in the bank with 1:05 left in the half. A successful extra point makes the score 21-7.
With time running out, Davis starts in the air from their own 43. They mostly sputter, but manage to connect on a first down. Their drive was not to last, however, and Chiawana runs out the half.

End of 2nd Quarter - Score: Riverhawks 21, Kennewick 0 

The Riverhawks start play at their own 43. They establish their presence with a few run plays, and a first down in Davis territory. A 24-yard pass puts the 'Hawks to the Davis 5. A couple of runs later, and the score is 27-7. The extra point is no good, and with 8:43 left in the quarter the Riverhawks extend their lead.
Davis starts at their own 31. They run it for five. The next play is a sack, and another run doesn't make it up. The Pirates punt.
Chiawana starts at their 35. A 65-yard run tacks on another six. The extra point is no good, and the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks go ahead 33-7.
The Pirates begin at their 34. A sack and an incomplete pass was too much for the 3rd down run to make up for, and the stingy Chiawana defense forces the punt.
The 'Hawks have the ball at their own 27. Three runs later, and they are at the Davis 11. Not to be denied, a touchdown pass and extra point made the score 40-7, with 3:34 left in the quarter.
With the ball at the 25, and not much choice, the Pirates continue to pass. Following a short pass and a sack, the third-down pass is intercepted.
The mighty Chiawana Riverhawks begin to rotate players, to give the workhorses some rest, and to give the backups some experience. From the Davis 14, they rumble. Run, run, run, to end the quarter with a 4th and less than one, at about the 4.

End of 3rd Quarter - Score: Riverhawks 21, Kennewick 7

A two-yard run resets the downs, and puts the 'Hawks two yards from paydirt. A bruising run play puts points on the board. The extra point is good, and the mighty Chiawana Riverhawks now lead 47-7, with 11:37 left in the game.
The team runs on just about every play, and they charge and pound down the field, to the Pirate 17. The drive grinds to a halt, and the Riverhawks turn the ball over on downs. The long drive and clock management helped to use up time, and Davis had no time left to score.

Final Score: Riverhawks 47, A.C. Davis Pirates (Yakima) 7
Next Week's Game - vs. Gonzaga Prep Bullpups (10-1, 5-0) @ Pasco (Edgar Brown Stadium)
