WARDEN – Royal football took care of Warden Friday night 61-3 to extend their win streak to an incredible 30 games dating back to 2015.

The Knights have showed no signs of slowing down coming off back-to-back 1A state championships, starting this season 3-0, including a 42-0 win over 2A Ellensburg. Royal has outscored their opponents 138-3 in their three wins.

Royal was on the board after their first drive Friday night as Alonso Hernandez rushed for a 2-yard score.

Warden quarterback Edgar Hernandez was intercepted by Angel Farias, leading to a 19-yard touchdown pass from Sawyer Jenks to Lorenzo Myrick to give the Knights a 14-0 lead after one quarter.

Myrick added two rushing touchdowns in Royal’s 34-point second quarter. Jenks also had two touchdown passes in the quarter, including a 52-yard pass to Isaac Ellis.

Warden’s field goal came early in the third quarter to make it 48-3 before an 8-yard rushing touchdown from Jenks stretches the Knights’ lead to 55-3.

Tyler Allred came in for Jenks and threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Carter Dorsing with about three minutes left in the game.

Royal returns home next Friday for a matchup against 2-1 College Place. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
