Garrett Horner was nearly flawless, completing 25 of 31 passes for 367 yards and five touchdowns, as the Hanford High School football team stormed into Walla Walla on Friday night and came away with a 42-6 victory.
The Falcons flexed their depth, with nine different players catching passes and 13 of them recording either a rush or a pass. Jared Devine continued his dynamic play out of the backfield, picking up 182 yards from scrimmage on 20 touches and scoring on a 15-yard scamper in the second quarter.
Darin Ongers did his best to jump start the Blue Devils offense early, racing 65 yards in the first quarter to open the scoring. But Walla Walla (0-3, 0-1) did little with the ball after that, gaining just 231 yards on the night compared to Hanford’s 517.
Horner found Dimitri Kennedy-Woody in the end zone twice in the second quarter to help the Falcons to a 28-6 halftime lead. Thomas Kitchens also had two touchdown grabs — 39 yards in the first quarter and 19 in the third — and had game highs with seven receptions and 128 yards.
Colton Bozich intercepted two passes for Hanford and Drezdyn O’Daol-Lyons made a pick as well. Damian Fraga made all six of his PAT attempts.
