The D.C. Current will try to score their second straight victory over the New York Rumble this week as they hit the road and look to face their Eastern Conference brethern.
D.C. Current (4-1) at New York Rumble (2-3) | May 17, 2014 7:00 p.m
Keys to the Game
These two teams met just a week ago, with the Current crushing a seemingly uninterested Rumble squad 28-15. D.C. jumped out to an early lead over New York as their defense was once again able to convert turnovers into break points. The Current will hope to follow a similar receipe and win on the road for only the second time this season.
New York on the other hand will want to prove that last week’s performance in D.C. was an aberation. The Rumble have won both of their home matches so far this season and will be eager to remain undefeated in front of their home fans during this 2014 season.

Players to Watch
Alan Kolick: D.C.’s star handler hung eight points on the Rumble last week, scoring two goals and handing out six assists. The Rumble were not able to stop Kolick and the Current offense cruised to mostly easy scores on 14 out of 15 possesions in their Week 5 win.
Brent Bellinger: Bellinger has been a key component in the Current’s D line offense. His experience as a long time offensive player has shone through in each of D.C.’s last two games as he has handled the disc well, guiding the Current to several break points. If Bellinger is able to find his way to the scoresheet again this week it should bode well for D.C.’s chances to score another win.
Chris Mazur: The reigning MLU MVP had a poor game up against his high standards in D.C. as he tallied just three points on one goal and two assists and committed seven turnovers. Mazur will need to have a much better performance against D.C. this week if he wants to lead his squad to victory.
