The Royals led 8-7 after three periods as freshman Charlotte Raisin scored one of her three goals.

Stanford-commit Reagan McEachen followed with a goal and so did Stryker.

San Marcos got a big lift in the fourth period behind Cal-bound Kate Meyer.

The senior started the period off with a goal to make it 9-7.

After Foothill scored, Stryker beat everyone down the pool and her fifth goal of the day made it 10-8 with 2:45 left to play.

Meyer struck again to make it 11-8 and the Royals held on for a huge victory.
