SALEM OH- In a rematch of last year’s 1st round playoff matchup between Salem and CVCA, the Royals once again came out on the winning end by a score of 28-21 on Friday night.

Salem took control of the ball game in the 1st quarter, leading. 13-0, and looked like they were gonna take a two score lead into the intermission after scoring to go up 21-7 with a minute left before half. CVCA would return the ensuing kick-off 80 yards for a score. That play would seize the momentum for the Royals and they would take over from there.
Scoring twice in the 3rd and capitalizing on 3 Quaker turnovers led the Royals to victory. The Quakers had a number of opportunities late to tie the game up, but unfortunately struggled to take care of the football, taking potential points off the board, and coming up short.
Salem (5-5) travels to United next week to finish out there season against the Eagles. Kick off in Hanoverton is at 7.
