This game is a huge rivalry between two schools who share a long history with each other. The rivalry, however, is coming to a close and this game is being referred to as “The Last Round Up” and the teams will play in a rodeo arena. These two schools have played each other more than 90 times in the past, but this is the last time they will play each other, as Hermiston High School is switching to a more competitive level and with closer schools in the Washington League.

The visiting Hermiston Bulldogs fans got loud as their team jumped out to an early lead of 14-0 but were quieted when Pendleton scored to cut the lead in half and as the Hermiston offense stalled. The second half of the game was purely dominated by Hermiston as its defense had an interception and the offense started rolling. The game MVP belonged to Hermiston quarterback Andrew James, as he led the Hermiston comeback for the 42-15 victory.
