It was a back and forth match-up on Saturday with each team trading points and big kills. Ultimately it would be the Royals winning their home opener in five exciting sets.

The Royals offence was extremely well balanced with nine players recording a multi-kill match. Not one player reached the double digit plateau. Jacey Neid, Grace Warkentin and Emma Schill each collected six kills and Warkentin also had nine assists and three digs.

The Blues also spread the ball around on Saturday. Meghan Koven led their attack with seven kills and Jaylene Lucas collected six.

Next weekend the Royals (2-0) head on the road to face the COTR Avalanche (0-0) and the Blues (0-2) have their bye weekend.
