Auburn Riverside defeated Auburn 48-28 in a crosstown rivalry game Friday night.

The KING 5 Big Game marked the end of an era as Auburn head coach Gordon Elliott coached his last regular season football game.

Elliott will coach one more game after Friday, a non-playoff cross-over game, but this week he officially announced that he would be retiring after 34 years of coaching.

Elliott, who began his coaching career in 1983 at Camas, also coached at the University of Puget Sound before coming to Auburn (5-4). Elliott has been the Trojans head coach for 16 years and has had winning records in 14 of those 16 years.

Auburn Riverside (8-1) is having one of their best years in school history and only lost one close game to Enumclaw 27-30 on October 13.

With the win over Auburn, the Ravens clinched the No. 2 seed in the NPSL Olympic conference.
