The teams then went to an intense penalty shot round as a winner had to be declared. After penalty shots, Golden Warriors claimed victory with a 4-5 score, advancing to the championship match.
The championship match saw Golden Warriors going against Revolution. The match began at 7:30PM with both teams going on the offensive side seeking the victory. Throughout the entire first half, there were solid crosses and passes, and at the break, it was a 0-0 score.
