TACOMA, Washington — Robert Terhune scored a 1-yard touchdown in overtime and Cascade Christian's defense stopped Colville's two-point conversion try for a 27-26 win in the Class 1A high school championship football game on Saturday.

After Colville's Colton Vining scored on a 1-yard touchdown run in overtime to cut the lead to 27-26, the Indians (11-1) opted to go for two and the win. The ensuing play went to Vining but he was stopped a few feet short of the goal line.

Cascade Christian (12-0) was led by quarterback Jaelin Goldsmith, who ran 15 times for 137 yards and a touchdown and threw for 125 yards.

Goldsmith was intercepted late in the fourth quarter in Colville territory by Tyler Ward.

Colville had a chance to win the game on the final play of regulation but a 35-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right.
