Top Performer: Briskans Shibale, Mount Rainier (scored a hat trick in 3-0 win over Kennedy Catholic).
Mount Rainier 3, Kennedy Catholic 0: Scoring all three goals in the win over the Lancers, the Rams’ Briskans Shibale earned a hat trick on a night where everything went right.
“The match went really well, we defended pretty well throughout the entire match,” said Mt. Rainier coach Steve Mohn. “We attacked pretty well and Briskans took advantage of the opportunities.”
The Rams’ goalkeeper Alex Weaver was very inactive throughout the match as he was only tested a couple of times.
Shibale’s first goal came in the seventh minute courtesy of Ryuji Sugyiama’s assist. His next two goals were in the 27th and 54 minutes assisted by Chris Gonzales.
“Chris had a good game as well. He had a shot earlier that almost went in,” Mohn said. “But he had those two assists though. He just found the seams and got the ball to Briskans at the best time.”
