Legends IE will have less than 24 hours to recover from a challenging match that extended onto extra time on Saturday morning. After no goals from either side in regulation time nor the first half of overtime, Legends IE finally broke through in double overtime, knocking in their lone goal, and clinching their ticket into the final, in the fourth minute. The New Jersey team continued their fight for the equalizer that would take the game to penalty kicks, but Legends IE maintained possession and control of the ball long enough to maintain the 1-0 score.
The 17 and Under Girls Legends FC bowed out of further contention after a tough battle with Pipeline 02 from Maryland that ended with a last minute 3-2 loss.
