Caitlyn Sparks led the Royals to the Channel League shutout against the Dons.

“We were able to contain them for most of the first half, but we had trouble keeping track of Caitlyn Sparks, who is very good on the ball,” said Santa Barbara coach Willie Sims.  “We had lot of good moments with our young team tonight, but we still need to mature in some areas.”
