"We played a complete game today, had lot of energy and didn't give them much.  Finishing was excellent today, we have so much depth this year, all the player played a ton of minutes during the tour and all played well. I love the focus level of this team, they have worked so hard in the off season and we can really see the positive results" Comments Head Coach Anup Kang

"We were a little slow to the ball today and VIU took advantage," said Julio Loza Coach of the WP Knights. "There were stretches where we were able to possess the ball and knock it around a little, but it didn't result in many offensive chances. They caught us out of shape on occasion made us pay. That was a good team we played and the result shows us where we need to improve."
