The semifinal winners will advance to the 2014 W-League Championship final at 2:30 p.m. ET Sunday.

Both of Friday’s semifinal matchups and Sunday’s championship and consolation match will be available live on the W-League YouTube channel.

The LA Blues (12-0-0) are the top seed after earning their fifth trip to the final four in their seven-year history thanks to a 2-1 victory against the Colorado Pride in Saturday’s Western Conference Championship. Goals from Sasha Andrews and Elizabeth Eddy helped LA overcome an early deficit and earn a shot to defend their 2013 title. They will face the Charlotte Lady Eagles (5-1-4), who took the Southeastern Conference title by defeating the top-seeded Gulf Coast Texans in penalty kicks after a 2-2 draw.

The Central Conference Champion Ottawa Fury (11-0-1) enter the championship weekend as the No. 2 seed and will face the No. 3-seed Washington Spirit Reserves (10-0-2), who earned their trip to the W-League Championship by defeating the Braddock Road Stars Elite in Friday’s Northeastern Conference Championship. Ottawa, the 2012 W-League champions, captured the Central Conference crown Saturday by knocking off K-W United FC 4-0.
