It was the third straight win for the Capitals and was the first time in EPLWA history that a club registered consecutive shut outs. Previously WUFC had blanked Yakima, 4-0.

The owner of the clean sheet is Colin Benham-Marin, who was also in front of the Wenatchee goal against Yakima. Benham-Marin now has two shut outs on the year, which ties him for the league lead. Benham-Marin played college soccer for the Yotes of the College of Idaho.

Wenatchee improves to 4-5-0 with 12 standings points and they move to 5th in the table as they jump over Yakima United.

WestSound FC is now 2-7-1, in 6th place with 7 standings points. The match drew 176 fans.
