The game was a see-saw affair with both teams battling up and down the field. It was Senior Eleazar Galvan who finally scored Chelanís first and only goal in the first half of this game. Senior Alejandro Angulo assisted Galvan who kicked an incredibly hard post shot that found the back of Brewsterís net.
In the second half, Brewster and Chelan continued to battle it out with both teams taking shots at the goal for 34 minutes. With only six minutes remaining to play, Galvan scored another goal to give Chelan a 2-0 lead and then Senior Erick Garcia gave a beautiful cross kick and found Junior Ivan Magdaleno on the far side of the goal. Magdaleno put a great shot into the goal for Chelanís third goal of the game.
Chelan Junior goal keeper Miguel Sanchez stopped all attempts on Chelanís goal by Brewster and was awarded the shutout.
