Sunset aims to school Scholars

When reigning champ Sunset clashes with Scholars International on Wednesday, fans will be monitoring the match-up between two of women’s football’s best sides in the President’s Cup final. 

Kickoff is 5:30 p.m. at the TE McField Annex, and admission is $5.  

Both teams logged their spots in the final with extra-time victories in the semifinals last month. 

Sunset beat Alliance 2-0 in the second leg to win 4-3 on aggregate. 

Goals from Fiona McLeod (41st minute) and Elena Testori (120th) helped Sunset rebound from a 3-2 loss in the first leg. 

Testori’s winner late in extra time showed Sunset’s resilience against a committed Alliance side. 

Sunset seeks their second straight President’s Cup against a formidable Scholars International side. 

A double strike from Martika Williams and goals by Kimberly Salgado and Tatiana Ramoon helped Scholars overcome Shanel Gall’s hat-trick and secure their place in the final.
