Keys to the Game
This will be the third meeting between the Rumble and the Current this season, with D.C. claiming each of the previous two matchups. While D.C. has dominated the two previous games, the Current know they will have to work hard to sweep their season series against the Rumble. But if the Current’s defense can continue to produce points at the pace they have for the past several weeks, D.C. should extend their winning streak.

Players to Watch
Alan Kolick: Kolick leads the league in assists (26), is fourth in total points (37) and has been the driving force behind the Current’s offense all season long. The MVP candidate has been consistently brilliant each week, and fans should expect to see more of the same.
Markham Shofner: Shofner has scored 12 points in two previous games against New York this season and will look to put up another big day against the Rumble on Saturday. Shofner is the rare MLU player who has the arm and accuracy to put the disc anywhere he wants from anywhere on the field.
Isaac Saul: Saul is the Rumble’s top point scorer and has been one of their top players this season. Saul has dished out 21 assists this season and will look to find more open teammates.
