The Spinners kept this game close until midway through the third quarter, where DC pulled away with some unforced and forced Philly turnovers. There was plenty of action, layouts on offense and defense, and some fun mixed in there too.
The fledgling open (men’s) Ultimate team held a mini-tournament this Memorial Day weekend in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. There was plenty of action, and true to the intent I wrote about in Skyd Magazine (“Winning Philadelphia’s Ultimate Future”), the mood was light.

After going down two breaks in the first quarter, the Philadelphia Spinners put together four consistent quarters to beat a depleted Boston Whitecaps 26-25.
After tight defense and the MLU’s first Callahan score (intercepting an opponent’s pass in their end zone) by #21 Michael Panna, the Spinners were down 1 point with less than a minute to go. The Current, bending but not breaking, tacked on a meaningless score as time expired to win the game 25-23.
After a 20-minute lightning delay, and playing much of the game in the rain, the Rumble pulled out the 18-17 victory.
