Kamiakin ready for rematch with Bellevue

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Kamiakin football team is just two wins away from its first ever state championship. But a familiar foe stands in its way. 

The Braves are prepping for Saturdays state semifinal game against Bellevue, the number one ranked team in the state. Bellevue embarrassed Kamiakin 38-0 in the championship game last season. A win would put Kamiakin in their third state final game in school history. The Braves say they are more than ready for the rematch.

"If you want to be the best you have to beat the best and right now Bellevue is that. There's always a factor when you want to play those guys again to prove yourself and prove that you belong on the same field as them," said Scott Biglin, Kamiakin head coach.

"We've all talked the whole year about playing Bellevue again because we were I'd say embarrassed from last year so we would like to show them how much a year would do for us. We're just ready to play them again," said Drew Oord, Kamiakin fullback.
