The final week of the RSL regular season has Dallas Harlequins at New York Athletic Club, Old Blue New York at Boston RFC, and San Francisco Golden Gate at Old Puget Sound Beach.
Dallas Harlequins at NYAC
Travers Island, NY, 1pm Eastern.
NYAC has secured the first place in the conference with a game to play so the result does not mean anything in the standings for NYAC. Dallas has had periods of good play during the season, but has been plagued by not being able to finish out games, losing leads late in a couple of games. Capturing those wins would have put a different complexion on the year. Dallas can throw caution to the wind and scoring a win against the best team in the East should be motivation enough to encourage a good performance from the visitors.
Old Blue New York at Boston
North Easton, MA, 6pm Eastern.
Pride is on the line as the long time rivals face off again near Boston. Old Blue won their earlier game in a somewhat surprisingly one-sided score. Neither team was able to mount a playoff challenge this year. Boston will want to finish off the season in style on their home field, especially as the four page spread in the Boston Globe during the week should bring some extra fans to the field.
San Francisco Golden Gate at Old Puget Sound Beach
Seattle, WA, 7pm Pacific.
What looked like a mouth watering end of season clash has lost its luster somewhat, as the seeds for the playoffs have already been decided between these teams. In a strange twist, this will be a dress rehearsal for the semifinal exactly a week later. You have to wonder if either team will experiment with new tactics or lineups to see what works or to throw the other team off, or whether they will out their best attempt forward in order to set a platform for the semifinal.
Either way, is should be an entertaining matchup between two talented teams.
