Nathaniel Goode recorded the shutout in goal.
The Cruisers continued their winning ways on Saturday when they defeated the Hoquiam Grizzlies, 5-1, at home.
Rockey found the back of the net four times for the Cruisers while Cole scored as well.
Tomyn had two assists, while Victor Peña Moreno and Alexander Lightfoot each had one assist. Trentten Cressman and Holder led the team with six defensive stops each. Nathaniel Goode had seven blocks/saves in goal to help Eatonville even their record at 2-2.
