With Box Elder blanking the Royals 4-0 on Thursday, there will be no undefeated Region 5 softball team this year.
Junior right-hander Baylee Reeves tossed a one-hitter, and the Bees pulled into a first-place tie with Roy, which has swept four consecutive league titles in the state 5-A and 4-A ranks.
"It feels awesome to shut Roy out," Reeves said. "We came in thinking we're going to have fun and not think too much about the game. We were really confident and relaxed. We just played softball."
The defending 5-A champion Royals were shut out for the first time this year. Roy also suffered its first league loss since its 2009 state 4-A championship season when it went 10-2 en route to winning the Region 5 title.
Box Elder made the most of only five hits, scoring all of its runs in the first three innings. The Bees (9-2 overall, 4-1 league) committed only one error, which was in stark contrast to the five miscues they made in Tuesday's road breakthrough over Bonneville.
"I feel like we're the best defensive team in the state, and I couldn't ask for more, especially (third baseman) Sadie (Blacker) taking the two hits away on line drives," Reeves said.
Blacker, a freshman, went to her right to snag a screamer off the bat of Jordynn Barrera in the third inning and later made a leaping grab to deny Payton Palmer in the sixth.
"It helps me as a pitcher getting an early lead, and when we start stronger we do better," the 16-year-old Reeves said. "I didn't expect to pitch a one-hitter against Roy. I thought they would hit me pretty hard.
"I was staying ahead in the count, moving the ball in and out and trying to hit my spots," she said. "I was also trying to get them to swing at the riseball. I don't want to have any walks, but it doesn't bother me too bad."
Reeves walked two Royals batters -- each in the fifth inning -- and recorded both of her strikeouts in the seventh versus the Nos. 5 and 6 batters to ring up her third season shutout.
Box Elder scored three first-inning runs on three hits, highlighted by Morgan McCormick's and Blacker's triples. Karly Bunderson drove in the first run with a sacrifice and Vanessa Quintero had an RBI single down the left-field line.
"Roy is one of the most respected teams in Utah and we had to match their intensity," Reeves said. "I know their hitters are strong, but I'm not afraid of challenging them.
"It just convinced me to get the job done."
McCormick had a run-scoring single in the second inning and Quintero smacked a solo shot over the right center-field fence in the third.
Roy (10-4, 4-1) had five base runners, with one erased on a force-out and another caught stealing.
