Soccer: Royals 3-0 in conference after 4-1 win over Bluejackets

The Rogers Royals stayed unbeaten in conference with a 4-1 win over the Cambridge-Isanti Bluejackets at home Tuesday evening.

Isaac Aanerud tallied two goals, giving him nine in the last five games. Mike Biah and Logan Olkon had the others.

Rogers is 3-0 in the Mississippi 8 and 3-6 overall.

Aanerud needed just 10 seconds after the opening kick to give the Royals a 1-0 lead with a well-struck shot from the side. That was the only goal of the first half, but Aanerud made it 2-0 with a penalty kick early in the second half after the Bluejackets were called for a hand ball in the box.

The Royals pulled away as Biah scored off a cross from Mitch Steeves, and Olkon scored an assist from Griffin Johnson.

Royals lose to Tigers 2-0

The Royals lost to section rival St. Cloud Tech 2-0 there on Monday, a game where most of the action was in the middle of the field but the Tigers scored on a corner kick and on a Royal defensive lapse, both in the second half.

Rogers will play at Buffalo on Thursday, 7 p.m.
