Cameron Richmond was known as a fearless receiver for the Rodriguez High football team, never afraid to go over the middle — or anywhere else — to catch the football.

Richmond and the rest of his Idaho State teammates took plenty of hits in suffering a 73-7 thumping at the hands of nationally-ranked Nebraska on Thursday.

The redshirt junior came away with three catches for 24 yards, following up games of 8 catches for 90 yards in a loss to Air Force on Sept. 1 and 12 catches for 127 yards and a touchdown in a win over Black Hills State on Sept. 8.

Richmond played just one game in 2011 — against Washington State and former Vanden rival Deone Bucannon — with one catch for 52 yards. That was his only catch as he suffered a season-ending foot injury.

This season he’s second on the team with 23 catches for 241 yards heading into this week’s homecoming game with Sacramento State and a matchup with former area standouts Chris Broadnax of Vanden and Markell Williams of Vacaville.

Sacramento State (2-2) took it on the chin, falling 35-13 to North Dakota with Broadnax catching two passes for 22 yards and Williams making nine tackles, six of them solo. Two of the tackles were for losses, one of them a sack.

Bucannon had a big game for the Cougars (2-2) in a disappointing 35-34 homecoming loss to Colorado, making a team-high 10 tackles, eight of them solo, with one forced fumble and a pass breakup.

Terrance Alston (Vanden, Solano) played for Utah State (3-1) in the Aggies’ 31-19 victory over Colorado State.

Doing a little bit of everything for Pacific (1-2) in the Boxers’ 51-17 loss to Willamette, Craig Bailey (Fairfield) averaged 58.5 yards on four kickoffs and made five tackles, three solo.

Basil Bandy (Rodriguez) had a sack for a 2-yard loss, but it wasn’t enough to keep Fort Hays State (0-4) from falling 21-3 to Missouri Western.

Brock Hekking (Vacaville) was a wrecking crew for Nevada (3-1) with five tackles, two sacks for 14 yards in losses and a forced fumble in the Wolf Pack’s 69-24 humbling of Hawaii.

Deone Bondurant (Fairfield, Solano) had his best game to date for West Texas State (3-1) with one tackle, half a sack and a quarterback hurry in a 24-0 blanking of Incarnate Word.

Younger brother Tra’Mayne Bondurant (Fairfield) put up big numbers in Arizona’s 49-0 loss to No. 4 Oregon, making 10 tackles, five of them solo with three for 15 yards in losses. He also broke up a pass.

Dixie State (2-2) had little to cheer about in a 49-13 loss to Humboldt State, though Myles Burton (Rodriguez) gave them something with a 42-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. He ran three times for 57 yards and caught a pass for 27 more.

Justin Collins (Fairfield) played for Western Michigan (2-2) in a 30-24 win over Connecticut, while Tristen Devers (Armijo, Solano) saw time for West Liberty (2-2) in a 25-20 loss to Fairmont State.

Quincy Forte (Vacaville, Fairfield) ran 17 times for 65 yards for Eastern Washington (2-1) in a 32-26 edging of Weber State.

Lewis and  Clark (3-0) stayed unbeaten as Keith Welch Jr. (Fairfield) completed 24 of 35 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-17 mauling of Macalester. He also had a 2-yard TD run, while Greg Goodenough (Vacaville Christian) contributed a tackle on defense.

Alex Hubbard (Fairfield), a former favorite target of Welch’s, had four tackles and broke up two passes to help Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (3-0) slip past UC Davis 28-20.

In Fresno State’s heart-breaking 27-26 loss to Tulsa, Marcel Jensen (Rodriguez) caught two passes for 22 yards and Anthony Riggins (Rodriguez) made a tackle for the Bulldogs (2-2).

Kyler Martin (Vacaville) had a tackle for Army (0-3) in a 49-37 loss to Wake Forest.

In Murray State’s 50-49 overtime loss to Eastern Illinois, Jordan Morrow (Rodriguez) caught five passes for 70 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown, returned a kickoff for 18 yards and ran the ball once for no yards for the Racers (1-3).

Damon Treat (Vanden) had a 27-yard reception and returned three kickoffs for 64 yards with a long of 26 in helping St. Cloud State (2-2) down Wayne State 24-19.

In Texas Christian’s 27-7 thumping of Virginia, Jason Verrett (Rodriguez) recorded four solo tackles and broke up a pass.

Cross country

Ally Rosemond (Rodriguez) finished 23rd out of 52 runners to help Dominican place seventh in the eight-team Sonoma State Invitational at Spring Lake Regional Park. Rosemond covered the 3.1 miles in 24 minutes, 1 second.

Volleyball

In Holy Names’ 25-14, 25-14, 25-15 loss to Fresno Pacific, Mariah Christensen (Rodriguez) had one kill, 13 assists, five digs and one ace, while Tatum Bales (Wood, Solano) had two assists and six digs for the Hawks (3-8).

Devon Damelio (Rodriguez) pounded out 15 kills and had three assists and nine digs to help UC Davis (7-7) slip past Pacific 25-22, 14-25, 25-19, 25-20.

Women’s soccer

Sabrina Caires (Solano) assisted on Stacey Cervantes’ goal in the 63rd minute, but Nyack (4-4) couldn’t make it stand up in a 2-1 loss in double overtime to Queens. Sandy Garcia (Solano) had a shot in the game, while Alexsa Gonzalez (Solano) also saw action.

In the Warriors’ 2-0 loss to Caldwell, Caires took three shots and Gonzalez one with Garica also playing. Caires also had three shots in a 2-1 win over Philadelphia University with Garcia and Gonzalez both getting playing time.

Erica Ramirez (Armijo, Solano) had three saves for Columbia College (2-6-1) in a 2-1 overtime loss to Lindenwood.

Natalie Guerrieri (Solano) played for Biola (3-3-1) in a  4-1 win over UC Santa Cruz.

Kirsten Jennings (Solano) got off two shots, one on goal, in Texas A&M International’s 3-1 win over Oklahoma Christian. She also played for the Dustdevils (5-1) in a 1-0 shutout of Saint Mary’s.

In Kansas Wesleyan’s 2-1 win over MidAmerica Nazarene, Anna Nisperos (Solano) took two shots, one of them on goal, for the Coyotes (7-1). She also played in a 1-0 blanking of Baker.
