FOOTBALL: Royal routs Connell

October 12, 2012 

Senior running back Damien Delarosa scored three times, one while on defense with a 34-yard fumble return, as the Royal Knights defeated the Connell Eagles 47-0 on Friday night in an SCAC East showdown in Royal City.

Royal (7-0, 4-0 SCAC East) earned its first victory over defending Class 1A state champion Connell (4-3, 3-1) since 2008.

“We’ve got a lot of seniors out there, and they were tired of having Connell take it to them,” Royal coach Wiley Allred said. “We did what we should do with that many senior kids who have played a lot of football.”

By rule, the game turned to a running clock with 4:58 remaining in the third quarter after Manny Quintero’s 4-yard run gave Royal a 41-0 lead.

Alex Myrick rushed for two touchdowns and threw for 167 yards and a score to help pace the Knights, while Kent Christensen had two of Royal’s five sacks.

Gunner Vanderbilt led Connell with 35 yards on nine carries, and Kyle Pruett and Jeff Hawk combined to pass for 48 yards.
