Catholic (7-5-2, 4-1-1 Landmark) kept its hold on first-place in the conference by scoring in the 14th, 16th and 36th minutes in the first half, and adding the final goal in the 57th minute during the second half.
The Royals (9-4-1, 3-2 Landmark) managed just three shots in the match, all in the first half, while the Cardinals had eight. Catholic also held the edge in corner kicks, 5-3.
