“Royal was ahead 18-17 in Game 5. Warden spiked the ball and was touched by a Royal player on the block but was not called by the officials,” Warden head coach Dennis Treat said. “This would have given Royal the win, but Royal’s head coach graciously asked the officials for a play-over and it was granted by the officials. It was a very classy act on the part of the Royal coach.”
