Semifinals were held on Friday, July 24 in tournament format with half of the
teams advancing to the finals.
"I saw the Amateur Cup Semifinal between
the Rovers (CO) and the Eagles (IL) and I thought it was a really great game. I
was impressed with the level of play" said National Cups Chairman Werner
Fricker, Jr. of this years event. "Games like that shows that the amateur
adult teams across the country play at a fairly high level. They play weekend
after weekend for the love of the game."
