By: Hunter Miller, “Royal Times” 
On February 1st at one o'clock the Lady Royals hosted the Lady Eagles of Colonel Crawford. The Royals came into the game on top of the league with a record of 14-3. Both teams got off to a slow start, but it was Beth DeLong of the Royals with the first bucket of the game. The Lady Royals quickly became the enforcer jumping out to a 9-3 lead after multiple eagle turnovers. The Royals were slowed for the remainder of the quarter and only managed to score on Sarah Stenson's free throws. The score after the first was 11-5, Wynford. The Lady Royals started the second on a 5-0 run ,and the Eagles did not waste time before they took their first time out. The Royals worked their way to the foul line to take a 23-10 lead before the eagles hit back to back three's to cut the lead to seven. The score at the half was the Royals 29, the Eagles 20. The first possessions of the second half resulted in two three's for the Royals to Crawfords one. Brenna Quinn was a mismatch for the Royals the whole game, the eagles had nobody that could stop her in the paint. Halfway through the third quarter the Royals had a 39-27 lead. The Lady Royals were stopped for the remainder of the third with the Eagles only scoring one bucket. The score after three is 39-29 with the Royals on top. Before the fourth quarter even began the Lady Eagle's bench received a technical foul which resulted in Meghan Harrer sinking both free throws. The Royals did not waste any time before stepping up to the foul line once again, this time Brenna Quinn hit the foul shots. The Lady Royals began to pull away after a couple minutes had past in the fourth. Brenna Quinn ran the paint both offensively and defensively for basically the whole fourth quarter. Once the fourth quarter had begun there was no looking back and Royals came out on top with a 51-34 victory behind Meghan Harrer's team high 14 points. This win gave the Lady Royal's an impressive record of 15-3. The Lady Royals will head to Madison to face the Rams in a non-conference matchup this upcoming Tuesday.

In junior varsity action, the Royals were in a stalemate in the first quarter with the score 3-2 for most of the quarter but managed a five point run with one minute left making the score 7-2 at the end of quarter one. The beginning of the second quarter Coach Kocher dialed up a play to set up a three pointer for the first play of the quarter. The Royals added seven unanswered points until the Lady Eagles managed to hit a free throw making the score 14-3. The Eagles were running a press that the Royals successfully broke and Hannah Kocher ran off five straight points. The score with a minute left in the half was 23-4. Coach Hurles said, “our tenacious defense in the first half holding them to only making 2 field goals and 2 free throws set the tone for the rest of the game.” The third quarter was a rather low scoring affair with a lot of long possessions and turnovers, but the Eagles made a small comeback with a 6-0 run. The Royals were still in control bringing the score at the end of third quarter to 34-13. The Lady Eagles clawed their way back to a 13 point deficit, 36-23, with their defensive pressure with three minutes left in the fourth period. It seemed like the ball was always on the Eagles half of the floor for about a minute during this time. The Lady Eagles did manage to cut the lead to 10 with a minute left in the fourth quarter and called a quick timeout. The Lady Eagles could not overcome the large lead and control the Royals for the rest of the game with the final score of 40-28 in favor of the Lady Royals. The junior varsity Lady Royals improve to 15-1 on the season, and also take on the Madison Rams Tuesday evening.
