ST. PAUL, Minn. - The # 20 Royals held #4 St. Thomas to only 10 points today in a defensive battle that ended in favor of the Tommies 10-6.

The Royals offense got a huge boost from sophomore Kevin Lindh (Houston, Minn.) who broke away on a 52 yard touchdown run with just over 9 minutes to play in the third quarter. At that point the Royals took the lead 6-3.

From that point it was all defense. Looking at the stats the Royals were able to rack up 321 yards of total offense in comparison to the Tommies 253. The Royals also had 19 first downs to the Tommies 14.
