Last night Prep Girl's Hoops was in attendance to witness the Royalton Royals rout over St. Cloud Apollo 60-34. Here are my brief game recap and 5 takeaways from the battle between Royalton and St. Cloud Apollo.
This game was won from the tip when Royalton's Jenna Anderson put in a layup to start momentum in the right direction for the Royals. The Eagles from Apollo struggled with turning the ball over as they struggled to beat Royal's tough full-court press defense early. They did get a nice game out of Keshona McGaughy who tallied 19 points with 11 of those being in the 2nd half when the Royals were at their best. This game finished at the half by a score of 29-15, in which the Royalton's frontcourt of Jenna Anderson and Autumn Schoenrock (2022) tallied more points than the entire Apollo team at the half. The second half was all Royals, as they got key contributions from Ashley Popp (2020) off the bench and sealed the large margin of victory against the Eagles, 60-34.
Apollo Had No Answer for Anderson
Finishing with 17 points, Jenna Anderson (2020) wins my MVP of this one. Apollo's Jaida Hansen (2022) was just no match down
