“We had some nice passing and some good goals,” Port Angeles coach Chris Saari said.

“The whole team played well and everyone got into the game.”

Goalkeepers Jack Doryland and Forrest Emmett combined for five saves for the Riders.

Mamat was named the offensive player of the match while Sam Beasley was picked as the defensive player and Stevenson was selected as the transition player.
