The Roughriders, hampered by the loss of their top 3 receivers to injury, used a smash-mouth "Power I" formation for the majority of the contest, passing just three times, all which were intercepted by Sequim.
Port Angeles had 258 rushing yards to Sequim's 159.
PA quarterback Keenen Walker, who suffered a broken forearm the previous week, played running back and safety for the Riders wearing a short cast, rushing for 59 yards on 10 carries.
