Semis: The door is open in the Under-17 Girls as both finalists from 2010 have been eliminated after Rio Vista FC 94 Eagles (NM) knocked off last year's runner up, Legends FC (CA-S) 1-0 today. The other 2010 finalist, Colorado Rush, were upset in their state semifinal, and Rio Vista will battle with So Cal Blues – Dido (CA-S) to determine the new champion. The lone goal of the game came from Caitlin Mortensen in the 48th minute as Rio Vista frustrated Legends with a tight defense that allowed few offensive opportunities.

Finals:  So Cal Blues had five teams in the 2011 Region IV Championships, but U-17 Girls So Cal Blues – Dido were the only one to claim the title as they defeated Rio Vista FC 94 Eagles (NM) for the second time this week. After a scoreless first half, Madison Krauser notched the game winner in the 63rd and Jennifer Stanley grabbed the insurance goal as the Blues walked away 2-0 winners.
