In the Eastern Region final, it was two teams from New Jersey  - Kearny Caledonians and Old Nassau 1869.  The boys from Princeton were hoping to add another AFA Cup to the one that they had captured two years prior.  However, the Scotsmen of Kearny had other ideas.  An early goal in the 10th minute by Noel Carson put the orange-and-black ahead and that’s all that they would need to claim the very first AFA Eastern Region title.

In the AFA Midwestern Region, the three-time AFA Cup champion Milwaukee Brewmasters traveled to Cleveland to take on the Ultimate Division champion Forest at Forest Park.  The locals proved to be rude guests, scoring in the very first minute on a long free kick from Robby Rasmussen.  The lead doubled 13 minutes later when Blake Morton's cross found Maximilian Simon’s head.  The Beer Boys pulled a goal back when Chris Watson wove his way through the Forest defense.  However, Blake Morton re-established the two goal need with a nifty combination play with Irvin Day.  Austin Hahn gave Milwaukee some hope from the penalty spot in the 30th minute, but after that the Cleveland Forest defense was impregnable.

In the AFA Western Region Final at Island Park in Alameda, Derek Keller got the guests off to a good start when he pounced on a rebound and booted a goal for the Goalseekers.  The host Nighstalkers were undaunted, having beaten Stockton 4:2 and 3:1 during league play, and continued to play their methodical style, eventually drawing even with a Randy Richardson volley from a Bronson Fitzgerald cross.  This was followed five minutes later when the hefty John Lynch blasted a free kick through the wall from 25 yards out, leaving Stockton goalkeeper Cannon Stoll with no chance.  Richardson tallied again early in the second half after Landin Shay slalomed through the Goalseeker defense, juked around the goalie, and laid a ball for Richardson to tap into the open goal.

The Cinderella journey of Charles Town SC came to a very sudden end in the AFA Southern Region Final.  While goalkeeper Ralph Savage was still basking in the home crowd’s adulation, the visiting Charles Coronets launched a shot immediately after the kickoff.  Savage was initially perplexed when the crowd’s exaltation turned to disdain, until he saw the ball in the back of the net.  Things went downhill from that point as Coronet Dustin Keller stole the ball off of a hapless Nash Toto and doubled the lead.  Shortly before halftime, Jude Skinner emerged from scrum in front of the Charles Town goal and knocked the ball in for the final goal.

Re: All-American Association Football League

At AAAFL Headquarters in Philadelphia, President Irwin conducted the draw to determine the semifinal pairings of the American Football Association Cup.  Luck would not be on the side of the Western and Southern clubs, who would both have to play away matches in this first year of their participation.

American Football Association Cup 1915 – Semifinals

It was a raucous scene at Palmer Stadium, on the campus of Princeton University, for the semifinal match between the host Old Nassau 1869 and the visiting Alameda Nightstalkers.  The Californians held their own for most of the first half until the Orange-and-Black’s Brice Hill collected a rebound in the 41st minute and slotted the ball past Nathaniel Franco.  Any plans that the Nightstalkers came up with halftime to get back in the game were quickly squashed when Terrell Hoover leapt above the crowd and headed the ball in after a Nassau corner kick.   While the visitors continued to press forward, the Nassau backline was impregnable.  Things fell apart for Alameda when their pressure left Franco exposed to a breakaway at 73’ between Carson and Clarke, who passed the ball between them until Franco committed.  Newton followed four minutes later with a free kick that blasted through the wall.  Frustration led Lynch to take down Bowers for a penalty kick two minutes before the end.

In Cleveland’s Forest Park, the visiting Charlotte Coronets hoped to make a good showing for the Southern Division as they took on the juggernaut Cleveland Forest of the Ultimate Divisions.  The local fans were quite energetic in urging their club to take another step towards the ‘double.’  Play was even in the opening minutes until Golden Ball winner Cameron Hayes wove through 4 defenders and slipped the ball just inside the near post in the 16th minute.  Charlotte thought they had drawn even a few minutes later, but Golden Star goalkeeper Aaron Archer somehow managed to tip a Tom Wood shot that seemed destined for the upper corner.  At 30’, Cleveland doubled the lead when Hayes, having drawn the attention of three Coronet defenders, dummied a driven ball from Morton that found Rasmussen alone five yards from the goal.  The Forest inside right left no doubt with the finish, which also finished the scoring for the match.
