The weekend started off with Dinamo and Lagers playing for the 4th semifinals spot in the Premier Division. The teams faced off in a shortened match of two 25 minute halves. Lagers defeated Dinamo 3-1, thanks in part to this goal from Sean Akamine.
With a short rest between matches, Lagers took to the field once more to compete in the semifinals versus the Premier Division’s #1 seed, Three Lions. Heading into the playoffs Three Lions’ record was 8-2-0 compared to Lagers’ 4-5-0. Despite the numbers, Lagers proved themselves a strong competitor for the Lions squad, creating an upset with a 3-2 win to advance to the finals where they will face Deportivo Italia who overtook Seattle Americans 4-1.
The First Division saw some upsets of their own–most notably the ousting of Westside United. Westside United entered the playoffs with a 9-0-1 record and 29 point goal differential, but they would suffer their first defeat when it mattered most, falling to Seattle East 2-1 in the semifinals. Seattle East will battle Nomads for the title after Nomads advanced over Deportivo Italia – Series B with a 2-1 victory.
