SMITHFIELD -- The Royals got right back to their winning ways again.

Following a 1-1 tie with Logan on Friday, Roy High's boys soccer team delivered on a 2-0 victory at Sky View on Tuesday afternoon.

"We've played better, but after Logan, we feel good to get the three points," Roy coach Glenn Puckrin said.

Senior Noah Jorgensen scored a goal in each half as the Royals took control and never let the Bobcats get much going.

Alex Vanderkooi and Nicklaus Stecklein each had assists on the goals.

Kaden Brinkerhoff earned the shutout in goal for Roy, which now sits 1 1/2 games ahead of Logan in the Region 5 standings.

* BONNEVILLE 2, LOGAN 1: At Logan, the Lakers' goalkeeper Adan Gomez made a couple of saves late to help Bonneville earn the solid road win. All the scoring came in the first half. Chandler Baddley scored on an assist from Sorie Morah, then teammate Hayden White scored on a rebound to give Bonneville the 2-0 lead.

Just before half, Logan scored to make things interesting.

In the second half, J.T. Wood and Baddley led a strong defense, and Gomez stuffed a breakaway from a Logan attacker to preserve the win.

"I think guys are putting things together," Bonneville coach Mike Hickman said. "We'll try to build some momentum for state."
