Junior quarterback Avery Downey came off the bench after an injury to starter Max Clark to help Capital earn a spot in the inaugural 5A Southern Idaho Conference Championship game by winning the SIC East with a 25-0 shutout over crosstown rival Timberline Friday night.

Downey, who came on in the second quarter, went 9-of-16 for 133 yards and two touchdowns through the air. He added 61 yards and another two scores on the ground for the Eagles (3-0), who with their 18th straight win over the Wolves (2-1), claimed a first-round bye at state and their first pod title since 2016.
