This was significantly increased in the second period as Royals outscored Falcons by a 43-6 score to enter the halftime break ahead at 83-19.

The demolition was completed in the final stanza, as Royals tallied 57 points to Falcons 19 to cement their place in local history.

Meanwhile, Retrieve Raiders edged Amelia’s Ward Jets 57-55. Neil Marks top scored with 16 points while Duel Montrose added 10 points. For the losing team, Parrish Cadogan recorded 20 points.
