The Rogers Royals closed the regular season with their third straight tie game, 2-2 against Buffalo, on Thursday evening in Buffalo.

Freshman mid Courtney Henderson and senior attacker Kirsten Heikkinen scored for Rogers, both in the first half.

Junior forwards Cami Daniels and Kaylee Lingen scored for Buffalo, the latter off a corner kick with about two minutes left to knot the game.

Rogers, which tied Elk River 2-2 and Monticello 0-0 in its previous two outings, finished  4-3-2 in the Mississippi 8 and will take a 5-7-4 overall record into Section 8AA next Thursday.
