Watch: QB Avery Downey talks about coming off the bench to lead Capital over Timberline

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.
