Sunday's weather looked to be a repeat of Saturday's: hot and sunny. Four teams made it through the semifinal and two others would battle it out to avoid taking home the wooden spoon. After the first day, it seemed like the two pool winners Calgary/Montreal and New York/Baltimore would be the favorites against the second seeds from the opposite pool.
The Columbus Jillaroos traveled to hot and steamy Milwaukee to play their first match of women's football. The women were treated to a 3 game curtain raiser between the men's clubs from Milwaukee, Columbus, and Ohio Valley.
The clouds were rolling in when the feature match started. Columbus sent an initial scare to the home town squad by winning the opening bounce and immediately moving the ball to the goal square. The Milwaukee defense took possession just in front of the goal and spoiled the new comers first salvo.
