In the semi-final of the UPSL Wild West Playoffs, JASA Redwood City hosted Contra Costa FC in a win or go home match. There was no scoring in the first half until JASA opened up the goal scoring tally seven minutes into the second half. However, the theatrics were save towards the last 10 minutes plus stoppage time of the match when Contra Costa tied the game by way of a banana kick that veered into the upper left net. JASA came back and regained the league off a short kick into the goal until in the final minutes the Walnut Creek area club tied the game again with a free kick play.
The game went to penalty kicks after 90 minutes, with each team scoring a kick. The one kick by Contra Costa sailed over the post that was reminscent of Roberto Baggio back in the 1994 World Cup final and JASA advances to the final on penalty kicks.
