    Mabray and Gilleran sat out most of the game and the Juniors and other Seniors played most of the game. They did a great job and proved that Riordan has talent and depth.

    Balboa players also deserve praise – they did not give up and pushed throughout the game and have some raw talent to be polished – and they had a lot of supporters present too – routing them on. Good to see.
