Knights split doubleheader with Eastmont

ROYAL CITY — The Knights split Friday’s doubleheader against Eastmont, winning the first game 13-6 before suffering a 12-8 loss to the Wildcats in the nightcap. Royal Head Coach Lisa Lawrence said it’s important to face challenging teams during the non-league slate. “We were feeling confident,” Lawrence said. “We were trying to line up with good competition – we know we need to see that to head into state, to see some competition that we don’t see in league sometimes. Eastmont’s always fun to play; we know them pretty well. We know they have good pitching and hitting.”
