KENNEWICK — Caleb Christensen threw six touchdown passes and Royal beat River View 67-0 to clinch another South Central Athletic Conference East championship.

The Knights (5-0, 8-0) wasted little time, leading 28-0 after one quarter and 61-0 at half. Friday’s drubbing was Royal’s fourth straight shutout and sixth in its last seven games.

Cooper Christensen caught two of Caleb’s touchdown throws; Derek Bergeson caught two more, while Aldo Farias, Lorenzo Myrick and Carter Dorsing caught one touchdown apiece.

The undefeated Knights close their regular season at home against College Place Friday at 7 p.m.

OTHELLO — Steven Ochoa rushed for a fourth-quarter touchdown, however, Othello lost its non-league game with Pullman 13-7.
