The Philadelphia Spinners hosted the conference champion DC Current for what was essentially a play-in game to the playoffs. With the Boston Whitecaps winning earlier in the day, the Spinners needed a victory to force a rematch the following week at DC.
It was a close game throughout, tied with three minutes to go in the game. DC’s Alan Kolick, likely the Eastern Conference MVP, blocked a pass just outside their end zone to dash the Spinners’ hopes. The Current won the game by two, 21-19.
