ROYAL CITY - Royal football is into the second round of the state tournament after a dominating performance Friday night against Charles Wright.

The Knights came away with a 64-7 win to open the state tournament and remain undefeated on the season.

The Knights put up 29 points in the first quarter, including a pick-six by Cooper Christensen.

Myrick added third rushing score in the second, and Caleb Christensen hit Cooper Christensen on a 40-yard touchdown pass as the Knights opened up a 57-0 lead at half and cruised to an opening round victory.
