The Pirates and Thunderbirds will face off for the trophy at 2:30 PM on Sunday back at Starfire. It’s a rematch of last year’s final won by Peninsula. Overall the Pirates have won the NWAC three times (2012, 2013, 2016) while the Thunderbirds have been to four previous finals (1996, 2003, 2015, 2016) but have never claimed the title.

Peninsula 4-0 Tacoma

The Pirates returned to the NWAC Final by stopping the playoff run of the Tacoma Titans. Akari Hoshino made two saves to record the shutout for Peninsula.


Highline 3-2 Clark (Penalty Kick Shootout)
