  • Chiawana Finishes Regular Season With Win

    Riverhawk Hold Off Tough Blue Devils

    CHIAWANA 14, WALLA WALLA 12: Andrew Vargas ran for 204 yards and two touchdowns as the Riverhawks held off the host Blue Devils in MCC action.

    Chiawana will play at Gonzaga Prep on Friday in a Class 4A state play-in game. Walla Walla will host Mead in a crossover game at 6 p.m. Thursday.

    Vargas scored on runs of 20 and 3 yards as Chiawana (8-1, 6-1 MCC) took a 14-3 lead at the half.

    Bryar Jensen, who kicked a 25-yard field goal right before the half, added another from 27 yards with 4:29 to play in the third quarter to pull Wa-Hi (3-6, 2-5) within 14-6.

    Just one second into the fourth quarter, Mitch Lesmeister took the ball in from the 1-yard line to make it 14-12. Brennan Barberich attempted the 2-point conversion for the tie, but came up short of the goal line.

    Neither team would score again.

    Lesmeister finished the night with 104 yards rushing and 237 passing, including eight passes to Bryant Romero for 161 yards.

    “It was fun,” Simpkins said. “I mean, I’ll do whatever the team needs me to do to get the win. But if we’re gonna pass the ball, we’ve got guys out on the outside that can make plays, so I’ll get the ball to them.”

    Chiawana’s senior running back Andrew Vargas — who entered the game leading the league in rushing yards (982) and touchdowns (13) — didn’t come near the 417-yard, four-touchdown performance from last week but still had a fine game, dashing for 167 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries, which allowed Chiawana to hold on to the ball for more than 31 minutes.

    Senior linebacker Caleb Weber came unblocked off the right edge on Hanford’s first play of the game from scrimmage to hit Falcons quarterback Garrett Horner and force an interception to Hayden Carrasco. The Riverhawks took advantage of the good field position by going 37 yards in four plays and cashing in on a short touchdown run by Vargas.

    But the Falcons wouldn’t go away quietly in the early going, as they capitalized on some good field position of their own — queued up by a bad snap on a Chiawana punt — to answer back with a 24-yard touchdown strike from Horner to wide out Joe Gauthier midway through the first quarter.

    Gauthier was by far Hanford’s top offensive weapon, as he also scored on a 76-yard catch-and-run late in the fourth quarter. He finished the night with three catches for 99 yards.

    The Falcons did a nice job of keeping Vargas in check in the first half, as a 43-yard scamper — which would have been a 69-yard touchdown if not for a block-in-the-back penalty — was the only time the Chiawana workhorse was able to get loose.
