The Sahuaros played in the round of 16 on Saturday April 24 and defeated Deportivo Union 3-0. Both sides were reduced to 10 men in the first half, and the Sahuaros exerted its influence as the match wore on.
The quarterfinals were on Sunday April 25. The Sahuaros defeated Leon 2-1, a Phoenix team that is currently in first place in the Latino Americana League. Leon is coached by Artemio Rayas, Silviano Lara and Gustavo Mujica. They also feature two former Sahuaro players, both of whom were with the Sahuaros in past championship seasons. The winning goal was a thing of beauty as Davey Lopez fed a nifty back heel pass into the path of Pat Perkins who slotted home the winner.
