The men's division had 11 teams - Fox Racing, LinkedIn, Silicon Valley Bank, GoPro, PayPal, Zanker Recycling, ANSYS, Infineon Technologies, Arteaga's, Kelly-Moore, and East West Bank - fighting for the trophy. However, by the end of the day, GoPro were the victors. GoPro beat Silicon Valley Bank 4-1 to lift the trophy.
In the co-ed division, nine teams participated - PG&E, Simpson Thatcher & Barlett LLP., Cooley LLP., Airfield Supply Co., Pear, PayPal, Amazon Lab 126, BD Biosciences, and Peoples Associated Structural Engineers. After an exciting day of playing, PG&E took the trophy home. PG&E secured their win with a 4-0 scoreline against Pear.
These were not the only two trophies going home that day. The top scorers from each division were also awarded a Golden Boot. Julian Nash, with Silicon Valley Bank, took home the men's division Golden Boot with a 10 goal haul in the tournament. Freddy Barns, with Amazon Lab 126, scored 12 goals to win the Golden Boot in the co-ed division.
