Yuhasz led the team with 13 carries for 124 yards and two touchdowns, while Sheets completed 5-of-14 passes for 111 yards and a touchdown, and also ran the ball 11 times for 37 yards and a touchdown.
Yuhasz's touchdown pass went to sophomore receiver Austin Albritton, who caught two passes for a total of 53 yards to go along with his score.
The Chiefs defense made tough stands against the Royals to keep them one point back.
Defensively, the Chiefs were led by senior linebacker Jeremy Jackson who had five tackles and an interception.
Also getting in on defense for the Chiefs were junior safety Devin Moorer and junior linebacker Levi Gideons.
Moorer led the team with six tackles, while Gideons recorded five tackles and two quarterback sacks.
