The standings after the weekend:

On Sunday with the flu running through the team they were down to sixteen skaters including sixteen year old AP Josh Kallies, and many of them were sick. They were no match for the Bruins. Kallies, from Sparwood, has been practicing and playing games with the Riders in the hopes that he will develop and play a regular shift next season.

The next Riders home game is November 19th against Nelson.
