    A) SD Surf
    B) LA Galaxy
    C) Blues
    D) Real Colorado

    Personally I’d like to see an all So Cal semi.
    Should be another great battle between LAG and Slammers. Toss up really. I’m just going against the chalk here.
    Blues vs Albion is always a tight one. Will depend on who is hot that day. I give the edge to the Blues keeper.
    Real vs Eagles is also intriguing. If KP can find space up top she is dangerous against anybody.

    Pools A, B, and C are easier. Agree with A and C, Slammers are always strong so going with them in B. Biggest wildcard is Pool D. Always interesting when northern CA and out of state teams come into the picture. Aftershock and Real CO have great reputations so it should be interesting. Good luck to all.

    A
    SD Surf - not that they needed any help, but perhaps a bit of home cooking scheduling going on here. #7 isnt slowing down anytime soon, really neat to watch her develop. I think Surf Hawaii could have been placed in this bracket.

    B
    Slammers - great to see Galaxy moved up to super black where they belong, but i am going to give the edge to Slammers as they are generally a very consistent high level team who moves the ball well.

    C
    Albion - I think Blues is still getting used to some new players being added to the roster. I like watching Albion play good team ball, and I think that play will be too much for Blues to slow down that penetration.

    D
    Tough call, but I will go with Eagles. - RealCO did great in Supercopa including a great win over Slammers, but they may have had an advantage since this tourney was in Denver at 5200 ft elevation where RealCO live/train. Surf Hawaii I need more information on, but did well in Vegas, so I suspect they are right in the mix as well in this bracket.

    Overall, I think this year is much higher level of play on average vs last year with a bunch of exciting teams to watch that could win. Looking forward to watching some of the out of state teams as well, these are the ages when they start to really put together some strong teams.

    Have to agree with you on Real. Eagles coach has an up hill battle undoing the short cuts taken the last few years. May have a special player, but as they get older teams win championships

    Nice to see yall at least admit Supercopa happened. Appears the usual suspects will advance.

    I'll take the Eagles vs Real today, looks like other pools settled barring an big upset.

    Surf V Slammers Final

    Albion looking good but I believe Slammers will have the edge

    Surf looks strong, not missing a beat. Eagles have who I believe is the best player #5, (yes I know 7 on Surf) but I do not believe overall they have the team to beat Surf.

    Good luck to all 4, was fun to watch everyone this weekend!!!

    Forgive me if my comment came out as not giving credit to the TEAMS. All 4 teams are incredibly talented and have been for years hence why you see them time and time again in the final 4. Good Luck!
