ROYAL'S LOSE CLOSE AT HOME

After a 5 game road trip the Royals got to play at home at the Jones Center against Kansas Christian College. Both offenses came out firing to put on a great show for those in attendance. Nicholas Coble came off the bench and provided instant offense as he went 3-3 in from deep in the first half. Despite the boost from the bench the Royals of Ecclesia were down two points going into intermission. In the second half it was a back and forth game with the neither offense letting up. In the end Kansas Christian came up with a 1 point victory in the final seconds of the game 96-95. Kansas Christian shot 58% from 3 on the game and Royals shot 48% from the field and 42% from 3. Freshman Center Matthew Hamer finished with 16 points on 10-11 from the foul line and Freshman Nicholas Coble finished with 12 pts.

Royals return to action on Saturday against Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO.
