The Royals’ second game was a loss to the Grand Forks Wolves, who won two close matches 25-23 and 25-22.

Finishing off Friday’s slate of games at 8 p.m., the Royals got back in the win column, defeating Kelowna’s Immaculata Mustangs in three matches. The Royals didn’t give up after dropping the first match 20-25, as they won the second match 25-21 and the tiebreaker match 15-6.

The Royals played Prince George’s Cedars Christian School Eagles at 9 a.m. Saturday.
