Andy Stafford, senior, puts up a free throw in the win against Lakeville North. Stafford is a starter for the Royals.

This game was absolute domination from the first second. The Royals took on the Robbinsdale Cooper Hawks at home on Dec. 13. Going into this game, the Royals were coming off of a seven point defeat against Minnehaha, which was their third straight victory.

After this game against the Hawks, the Royals are on a four game win streak and are currently first in the Lake Conference.

The Royals created a gap in the first half that the Hawks just could not close.  Robbinsdale was held to 13 points in the first half.

Dane Zimmer, senior, played a huge role in the first half victory for the Royals.  Being a defensive anchor all half, Zimmer had at least four blocks in the first half which helped the Royals in this blowout win.

The second half was very similar to the first, in the sense that the Hawks did not score very much. It was basically garbage time for the entire second half.

Not only was this a big win, but it was an exciting one, with big dunks from Andy Stafford, senior, Zeke Nnaji, senior, and Jalen Dearring, senior.

After another domination period for the Royals, the final score for this victory was 71-29.

The Royals host their second of three straight games against Madison La Follette which is a visiting team from Wisconsin that is currently 4-1 and on a three game win streak.

The Royals will take on the Lancers on Dec. 13 at 1:45 pm.
