In a thrilling football showdown on a cool and rainy fall evening, the Royals emerged victorious with an 18-9 win over the Lloydminster Barons. The matchup, which took place under the lights, was a showcase of resilience, impressive plays, and a gritty defensive battle that had fans on the edge of their seats.

The first half of the game was a testament to both teams’ strong defensive units. The score was locked at a mere 7-2 in favor of the Royals at halftime. The lone touchdown of the half came from the Royals’ running back, Caton Harrison, who took the ball wide and beat the defender to the pilon for a crucial rushing touchdown.

As the teams emerged from the locker rooms for the second half, the rain continued to pour down. The Royals, determined to maintain their momentum, wasted no time making an impact. Aidan Low electrified the crowd with an incredible kick return touchdown, showcasing his speed and agility. The successful extra point attempt increased the Royals’ lead to 14-2.

In the final moments of the game, Jared Festus, the Royals’ kicker, displayed nerves of steel. He booted a 19-yard field goal through the uprights, extending the lead to 17-5 and putting the game further out of reach for the Barons. But Festus wasn’t done yet; with time running out, he made another critical contribution by sending a 35-yard punt through the endzone, earning the Royals a single point and sealing the game with an 18-9 victory.

The Royals will host the St. Mary’s Marauders from Prince Albert on Wilson Field this Thursday, October 5th at 4pm.
