The team struggled the first quarter with putting up only three points while Florida Christian had 13 points on the board. During the second quarter, the Lady Royals stepped up and scored nine points while Florida’s Christian also put up 13 points again.

“Although the girls didn’t win I saw a tremendous amount of effort in this game, I know for a fact that they will make a come back this season,” said junior Cristobal Camejo.

Although the team took a second loss against North Broward Prep, it was a very close game with only a 3-point margin. The Lady Royals controlled the first quarter, 10-1, but faltered in the second quarter. ILS won the second-half 25-24 overall, and won the fourth quarter 14-11.

The second-half response from the team, considering the difficult second-quarter, was an important step forward.
