— The Almira/Coulee-Hartline Warriors won the state 1B football title in a record-setting game Friday night in the Tacoma Dome.

The Warriors outlasted the Sunnyside Christian Knights, 84-60.

The Warriors' score was the highest ever posted by a single team in a state title football game, and the combined score was more than any other championship game, according to WIAA records dating back to 1973.

The Knights are the first-ever football team from Sunnyside to make it into a state title game.

This is the Warriors fourth championship victory in five games since 1980.

In other Friday night football, O'Dea upended Rainier Beach, 38-11, to win the state 3A title in the dome.
