It took four extra games to decide who the final six in postseason would be, and one that was decided, uncertainty continues to hang over the PWL postseason as the threat of a government shutdown that would close our fields looms.
Some things are 100% decided…and somethings are still up in the air. Here is what we can tell you.
DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
The Division Championship Series will both be night games played this week in advance of World Series Sunday. Gravelly Point, if it’s even open, doesn’t allow night games, so these games would have to be moved either way.
The host facility for the Division Championship Series will be Field #17 at Maryland Soccer Plex in Boyds, Maryland.
18031 Central Park Circle
Boyds, MD 20841

These will be our first games ever played in Maryland after multiple seasons in both DC and Virginia. Three previous playoff series have been played at night. A DCS for Summer 2008 between Scared Hitless and the Canvassers was played at night. The following Spring, a DCS between Clubber Lang and Scared Hitless featured lights. The final series after dark was a World Series, and also the latest in the year we’ve ever played, a Summer 2009 World Series played November 18th between the Canvassers and Flaglove. All the previous night games were at Ft. Reno.
