Returning onto the second half, Elite SC extended their lead 11 minutes into the second half to 3-1, but a penalty kick in favor of L.A. Villa FC in the 30th minute would allow the ladies to cut their deficit and close in on the scoreboard. Near the end of the match, Elite SC buried the last goal for a 4-2 final.
With their win, Elite SC clinched the championship title, as well as the $7,500 cash prize. L.A. Villa FC also took home a Finalist trophy, along with a $4,000 cash prize. Due to a forfeit, L.A Wolves FC finished in the Third Spot in the Women’s Division.
