Julius Freeman gets an interception and runs down field.

The Prince George Royals Football teamís run game never lost their steam against the Crimson Wave with both Marcell Candy and Luwayne Allen rushing for over a 100 yards.
The icing on the cake of a 55 yard drive, with only a second left on the clock in the 1st quarter was when Royals Anthony Knight cracked through the Crimson Wave defense at the 4 yard line for the Royals 1st touchdown. The Royals running game strong armed through the Petersburg defense defeating them 28 to 16 at Petersburg High School at 7 p.m. last Friday.
With only 7 seconds into the 2nd quarter Knight scored another a touchdown after a 4 yard rush. The remainder of the 2nd quarter was silent as 11 minutes ticked away with neither team scoring a touchdown. At halftime the Royals came out of the gates with another touchdown from Saquan Harrison to Sidney Rose for a 12 yard touchdown.
But the scrappy Crimson Wave didnít buckle under the pressure with the fierce offense weapon Upton Bailey, catching a pass for a 12 yard touchdown.

Both of these touchdowns were followed up by 2 point conversions by Bailey.
The Crimson Wave were closing in on the gap, the score was 20 to 16. But the Royals prevailed with a 10 yard rushing touchdown courtesy of Allen.
