In the Championship semis, the San Diego Surfers ran out to a 23-5 lead and held on 26-17 over New York. Try-scoring sensation Srah Levy was held relatively in check - she got New York's first try, but that was it. Meanwhile Megan Foster slotted three penalties - two early and one at the end, to help the Surfers get by.
