Keys to the Game
Saturday will be the first time these two squads have squared off this season. Both New York and D.C. enter the match coming off of victories in Week 4.

The Current will look to remain undefeated at Cardinal Stadium this season and move to 4-1 at the halfway point of the 2014 MLU campaign.

Players to Watch
Alan Kolick: Kolick has been incredible this season with the disc in his hands, as he always makes great decisions and puts his recievers in a position to make the catch. If the Rumble hope to slow down the Current’s offense, they will have to contain Kolick and make his work hard to recieve the disc.
Sean Keegan: Keegan had eight points in the Current’s Week 4 win over the Spinners, showing off his best assests. Not only does Keegan have the ability to bomb the disc deep, but he also has a knack for finding free space in the end zone.
Chris Mazur: Mazur is the reigning MLU MVP and showed why last week as he scored a game high eight points off of two goals and six assists. The Current will need to put a tight mark on Mazur to make sure the Rumble’s offense doesn’t get off to a good start.
