DC Clinches Eastern Conference

The Washington D.C. Current clinched the MLU Eastern Conference after a wire-to-wire win versus Boston Whitecaps on Saturday, June 7. Boston Whitecaps, 2013 Eastern Conference & MLU champions, were down 0-3 early, and down 6 at halftime.

DC led Boston in the first half (12 to 6), but surprisingly was outscored by the Whitecaps in the second half (9 to 10). The Current's built-up lead was just too much for Boston to overcome. DC's offense flowed better throughout the entire 40 minutes; especially impressive with the Current traveling - an 8 hour bus trip - earlier in the day.
