Streak stopped: Richmond downs Kokomo

September 23, 2012

Taylor Kidd was almost at a loss for words.

In each of his past three seasons, the Richmond senior had not beaten Kokomo. For the Red Devil program, it had been even longer.

That’s now a thing of the past — as is the Wildkats’ complete domination of North Central Conference football.

Richmond ended Kokomo’s 39-game conference winning streak Saturday by knocking off the ’Kats 26-22 — and by climbing out of the 15-point deficit the Red Devils were in after rain and lightning halted play late in the second quarter Friday night at Lyboult Field.

J.D. Moore’s 4-yard touchdown with 57 seconds remaining gave Richmond the win — and sole possession of the top spot in the NCC.

“For the four years I’ve been in high school, I’ve never seen a ‘W’ against Kokomo,” Kidd said after rushing for a game-high 101 yards. “It’s hard work, dedication that got us there. I’m so happy right now.”

Hard work, dedication — and a renewed Red Devil energy that was quickly apparent Saturday afternoon.

Kokomo picked up with the ball and 3:05 remaining in the second quarter, but the RHS defense stalled the drive and went into halftime down 22-7.
