Women Play for W-League Title
Posted on Sat, Dec 31, 2011


After beating the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Women, 3-1, Friday night in the W-League semifinal round, the Atlanta Silverbacks Women have advanced to the league final for the second time in the team's history.

A goal from midfielder Jamie Pollock followed up a pair of goals from forward Megan Tomlinson, topping the Whitecaps and vaulting the Women into the final, where they will meet the Ottawa Fury on Sunday night at 7 p.m. ET at Starfire Stadium in Seattle.

The Women's playoff run this year has taken them to their third Final Four, but the team has never won a W-League title. They came close in 2007, finishing as the league's runners-up.

Fans can receive live updates from the title game on the Silverbacks Facebook and Twitter pages, and can watch a taped airing of the game on Fox Soccer Channel on Monday night at 7:30 p.m.
