    LAKE WALES, FL- The Royals looked for their fifth win of the season as they faced off against the Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldogs.

    The Royals found themselves trailing early on in this match by a score of three to nothing but would showcase the strong fight that they’ve had all season as an unassisted goal of Bailey Dykes would give the Royals their first goal of the match quickly followed by an unassisted goal by Abby Petrillo cutting the lead to one.

After a back and forth first quarter, the score was even at 4. The Royals would score three goals in the 2nd quarter courtesy of two unassisted goals by Dykes and Lynch and with 5:18 on the clock, Monserrat Anaya-Lopez would find an open Lynch giving the Royals a 7-4 lead.
