The disputes that defined the teams that would enter the quarterfinals were so exciting that one might say, "it can be no more."

As for the score, the teams were like this back then:

Leopardos 34

Firpo 32

Barcelona 31

Real Madrid 20

México 15

No one expected Real Madrid to reach the semi-final, but they did. At the time, Barcelona occupied third place on the board. México, a team that for its effort won much respect, found that it was necessary that they continue their work as Real Madrid stayed strong and refused to go home empty handed. Firpo, a team who's determination paid off, came from behind earning the chance to face a Leopardos team has led since the beginning of the tournament. 



The day was perfect for the date in which family and friends of players and coaches of eight finalist teams witnessed a grand finale. 

The meeting board for Oct. 6 had the team Santos Laguna vs. Pachuca in a quad match, as well as México vs. Chicas Latinas, for 3rd place Real Madrid vs. Barcelona, and for 1st place Leopardos vs. Firpo. 

In the match for third place, Real Madrid defeated Barcelona, 3-2.

In the semifinals, Firpo vs. Leopards exceeded all expectations; now, the game they faced for the #1 title was full of everything but boredom.

The first minutes are vital to shake the nerve, especially if a champion is in front of you.

It pays to work hard, 10 minutes into the first half Firpo scored their first goal.

Intense and pure desire to come first was in the heart of an enthusiastic Firpo team, which came solely to make war against a team that wants to take home the #1 title for the third time in a row.

Inevitably, 15 minutes later, the Leopardos reach up to him tied the score.

By the middle of the second half, once again Firpo scored, taking a 2-1 lead. The agony grew and a yearning hope for the end, but it was not so because with two minutes left until the end, the Leopardos scored, sending the game into overtime in which where the next goal would win.
