The New York Rumble will look to end their season on a high-note as they take on the Washington D.C. Current in their final game of the 2015 season.
Coming off a blow-out loss against the Boston Whitecaps last week, New York will try to impress the home crowd fans at Belson Stadium in Queens, NY. Prior to the game, the Rumble will honor three-year captain and defensive stalwart Joe Anderson, who will be leaving the team due to an upcoming move across the country.
The Rumble last played the Current six weeks ago, losing by a score of 21-17, after beating them the previous week 16-13 to earn their second win of the season. Since then, the Rumble have only won one game and sit in last place in the Eastern Conference with a 2-7 record. With the Current also eliminated from the playoffs, this game will be all about pride.
The Rumble will go into this game with one of their biggest contributors and Rookie of the Year candidate Chris Kocher listed as questionable, after sustaining an injury against the Whitecaps one week ago. New York will also be missing handlers Andrew Hollingworth and Chris Gwinner, as well as defensive players John Geraghty, Brenton Hard, Ryan Schwartz and Brian Walter.
Tickets for today’s final game are currently available on the Rumble Ticketleap Page.
