The Lions balanced attack seemed to much to handle for the Royals. Aleksa Lakic, Gilberto Cervantes, Ackeem West, and Max Nua were all productive at the net leading the Lions with 31 out of their 37 kills for the match. The Lions also added 8 blocks to their .256 hitting percentage to help themselves to a 1-1 start to the season.
