The Royals girls soccer team traveled to Wayzata to face the Trojans on Sept. 14th. The Royals came into the game a record 5-1, after defeating the Cooper Hawks 4-0 last Saturday.

With a final score of 0-1 in favor of the Trojans, the Royals now have a record of 5-2.

The first half started slow with both teams possessing the ball well, but it wasn’t until the end of the first half that either team was able to score a goal. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the Royals who scored.

“Wayzata is always a good team and now that we have a better idea of how to handle them, I think we’ll be better prepared to play them again.” said Ashley Akin, captain, senior.

Despite the loss, the Royals played a great game offensively and defensively.

On defense, the Royals locked down some of the Trojans high skilled players. Offensively the Royals weren’t able to finish their opportunities that likely would have lead to goals.

The Royals face the Edina Hornets at Edina High School on Thurs. Sept. 15th at 5:00 p.m.
