[W-LEAGUE] The Washington Spirit, winner of just one game in the NWSL, could take a lesson from the Spirit Reserves, who moved into the W-League final four with a 2-1 comeback win at the Virginia Beach Piranhas in Friday's Northeastern Conference final. The Carolina Elite Cobras also advanced with a 2-1 win on the road against the Dayton Dutch Lions.

Hayley Siegel and Ashley Herndon scored seven minutes apart in the second half for the Spirit Reserves to overcome Virginia Beach's lead on Esther Anyanwu's goal. The game drew 847 fans at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex.

Tiffini Turpin and India Trotter scored first-half goals and Carolina held on after Emilie  Fillion scored in the 88th minute.
