Schedule set for PDL Western Conference Championships

 

VANCOUVER, BC – The path through the United Soccer Leagues (USL) Premier Development League (PDL) Western Conference playoffs has become clearer for Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23 (9W-3L-3D).

On Friday, the 'Caps will look to extend their nine-match winning streak when they take on hosts FC Tucson (12W-2L-1D) at 8 p.m. PT at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona. Southwest Division champions Ventura County Fusion (9W-3L-3D) will play Northwest Division champions Kitsap Pumas (9W-1L-4D) at 6 p.m. PT in the other semifinal. The two winning clubs will then face off on July 26 at 7:30 p.m. PT to determine which side will represent the Western Conference at the PDL Championships, which pit a representative from each of the Western, Eastern, Southern, and Central Conferences against each other. The PDL Championships are set to run from August 1 to 3.

Over the weekend, FC Tucson, the Mountain Division and Western Conference regular season champions, took down the Southwest Division’s Los Angeles Missioneros (7W-3L-5D) 2-1 in one of two cross-over elimination matches between the two divisions. In the other cross-over playoff match, Ventura County Fusion defeated the Mountain Division’s BYU Cougars (7W-5L-3D) 1-0.
