Thursday, 19 July at 10am AEST to be exact, where the final four will do battle one last time in Blizzard Arena Los Angeles before the first ever grand final scheduled for July 28 and 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The last of the quarterfinal matches took place this weekend, so the full semi-finals roster is now set.
The first best-of-three quarterfinal saw London Spitfire defeating the Los Angeles Gladiators 2-1, with Philadelphia Fusion ending the season of Boston Uprising in a similar 2-1 victory. The victory for Spitfire was especially sweet as the team had not beaten the Gladiators during regular season play - ending a losing streak in the best possible way. By taking out the first two games in a clean 3-0 sweep.
And so the final four teams for the semi-finals has been set with No. 1 New York Excelsior (34-6) set to face No. 4 Philadelphia Fusion (24-16), and No. 2 Los Angeles Valiant (27-13) will take on No. 3 London Spitfire (24-16). With OWL All-Star and local hero Scott "Custa" Kennedy part of the Valiants final push for glory - we'll be watching all the action closely.
