Seattle and Glendale Lock Up Playoff Spots With Two Weeks Remaining: SEATTLE v AUSTIN FULL MATCH VIDEO
There's two weeks left in the regular season of the inaugural 10 week MLR season. Glendale and Seattle will be in the semis, who their opposition will be is to be determined. The semis are held at Infinity Park in Glendale so no home field advantage for the higher ranked teams, except Glendale. The final venue is predetermined as well, in San Diego.
It's likely a #1 v #4 and #2 v #3 scenario so Glendale will host one of San Diego, Austin or Utah. Seattle will get a second team from this group. NOLA are still mathematically alive but unlikely to make it and Houston are just flat out of contention.
The national team players for all teams are unavailable now until the playoffs on June 30th so teams will have to win without their stars. Seattle got the job done on the weekend, barely, with a 20-19 win at Austin. Meanwhile Glendale pummeled Houston 37-24 at home and San Diego gave themselves a strong playoff platform with a 39-22 win on the road in New Orleans.
