The D.C. Current will hit the road this weekend for the long trip up to Boston, trying to prove that their 18-17 win over the Whitecaps in Week 2 was no fluke.
D.C. Current (6-1) at Boston Whitecaps (4-3) | June 7, 2014 7:00 p.m.
Hormel Stadium | Medford, Mass.
Keys to the Game
This will be the third and final meeting between the two Eastern Conference leaders – at least in the regular season – with each team claiming a victory at home. Boston is undefeated at home dating back to last season, but the Current have only lost once this year and are riding a four-game win streak. If D.C. can become the first team to knock off the Whitecaps on their own field, the Current will lock up the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Players to Watch
Alan Kolick: Kolick is receiving lots of deservid attention as a possible league MVP. Kolick is the best player on the league’s best team and consistently provides whatever the Current need on offense. He had a bit of a rough game in Boston during their Week 3 loss and will look to make up for that poor showing by leading the Current to victory.
Peter Prial: This will be Prial’s first game in Boston since leaving the city. Last year, Prial was the league’s top goal scorer while helping the Whitecaps the the inaugural MLU title. Now in D.C., Prial is again putting up big numbers and should have another big day on Saturday.
Dominique Gibson: Missing a handful of their top defensive line players, the rookie Gibson will have an increased role this weekend on the road. Gibson has proven up to the task each time the D.C. coaches have put him on the field as he consistently makes big plays and plays excellent shutdown defense away from the disc. He’ll be faced with a difficult challenge this week when he faces off against the likes of Jeff Graham, Josh Markette and MVP candidate Brandon Malecek.
