This is the fifth tournament that the Freedom team has made a finals or semi-finals in this season.

Off to a great start, Freedom won their first game 3-0 against Cal Blues Shock ‘98. Keeping their momentum for the day, they captured Danville’s Mustang Impact also by 3-0. Heading into Sunday morning, they fought a hard battle against Elk Grove’s Everton FC but were defeated 0-3.
