The Cruisers headed to Tenino to take on the Beavers on their infamous black turf field.
Eatonville struck first in the 16th minute when Kevin Tomyn knocked in a perfect looping shot in the upper left corner for the lead. The Cruisers held that lead into the half. The Beavers' Tyler Minerich changed that shortly in the second half when he scored the first of his three goals on the day, securing the coveted hat trick and leading Tenino to a 3-1 victory, dropping the Cruisers to 0-3 on the young season. Keeper Nathaniel Goode had eight-plus saves in goal for the Cruisers.
