Des Moines Menace (3-3-3, 8th) at San Antonio FC (7-1-1, 2nd)

We have a rough first half in which every tackle attempt creates a yellow card or a penalty, meaning many of the turns are used up on free kicks. One of the tackles leads to a late 1st half penalty, which they convert for the lead. However, I'm immediately able to equalize when Pennington is able to dribble to the left side of the defense and convert the shot. In the 2nd half, I continue the same strategy of getting the ball to my forwards and forcing their defense to come out of position for the tackle. Because of this, an Arias interception and pass leave McCullough all alone in front of the goal. He converts for the lead. San Antonio wins a late corner, but we defend it.

Final: Des Moines 2, San Antonio 1
Goals: Pennington, McCullough
Top Three: Arias, Epperson, Pennington
