The matches

• The host Red Stars (10-1-0) won the Midwest Conference and take on Tampa Bay Hellenic (10-1-1), the winner of the Sunshine Conference. The Red Stars are led by Michele Weissenhofer (9 goals, 8 assists and 26 points) and Amanda Cinalli (10 goals, 21 points). Stacy Bishop, formerly of Women's Professional Soccer's Atlanta Beat, leads Tampa Bay with 10 goals and 24 points.

• The Boston Aztec Breakers Reserves (8-2-3) open the tournament against the Orange County Waves (11-1-0). Aztec had a shaky second half of the regular season that included a 1-2-1 stretch and a third-place regular-season finish in the East-Northeast Division. But Boston has outscored its opponents 8-0 in the playoffs. The Waves are on a six-game winning streak.
