That final four is still taking shape, however.
Two other PDL teams had secured a final four spot as of Monday. One, being Mississippi Brilla FC, who won the southern conference on Saturday night by beating FC Miami City 3-1 on penalty kicks.
The eastern conference championship was also decided Sunday night in a match between the Long Island Rough Riders and the Charlotte Eagles, with the Eagles coming out on top, also on penalty kicks.
The western conference title will be awarded this week. The game between Fresno Fuega and FC Golden State Force was originally scheduled for Saturday, but was postponed due to heavy rain.
A post on the FC Golden State Force Facebook page said the game will take place either Monday, July 24, or Tuesday, July 25.
