It looked like the Royals were on cruise control.
Up 26-8 at one point in the first half against visiting Roseville, Woodbury showed total dominance in the battle for first place in the Suburban East Conference.
Then something changed. A defensive clampdown by Roseville touched off a dramatic swing in momentum that ultimately cost Woodbury the lead – and the game.
The Raiders squeaked out of the Lion’s Den with a 77-76 win and the outright lead of the SEC.
Woodbury falls to 19-5 overall and 13-3 in the SEC. The Royals have two games remaining on the schedule: road games against Park (Tuesday) and Mounds View on March 2.
