After winning all of their games — by scores of 10-0, 2-0 and 1-0 — the Pumas earned their spot in the championship game against the host team, Rapids Youth Soccer Club.

The playoff game ended in a 0-0 tie, and went to a shootout, in which the Grand County Pumas prevailed thanks to the goaltending of Jess Heid and shootout goals from Harper Bishop and Dylan McGuan.
