Soccer: Royal boys lose to St. Francis 2-1

The Rogers boys soccer team lost its opener to St Francis 2-1 there on Thursday evening.

“We outshot them by about two to one but could not get the ball in the net,” said coach Chris Miller.

Kyle Bogart had the Rogers goal, in the second half. St. Francis got both goals in the first half. Andrew Bentz was goalie for Rogers. Miller said the Kenny Johnson and eighth-grader Mike Biah put plenty of pressure on the goal though they didn’t score.

Rogers will be at home Saturday for a boy-girl doubleheader against Park Center, boys at 1 p.m. and girls at 3 p.m.
