In MLU’s new video series Ultimate Gamechangers, we take a weekly look back at the moments that shaped the 2015 season.
The Boston Whitecaps have been the most successful franchise in MLU history over the league’s first three seasons. A dominant force in the East, a victory against the Whitecaps has always been the goal of of their conference rivals, especially in Boston. Heading into Week 4 of the 2015 MLU Season, the Philadelphia Spinners were looking to record their first franchise victory on the road against Boston. Despite having won their last three games against the Whitecaps in Philadelphia, the Spinners had never been able to record a win against Boston on the road.
Right out of the gate, the Spinners showed that they were there to play, taking an early lead which they maintained throughout most of the game. With less than two minutes to go, and a four-goal lead over the mighty Whitecaps, the Spinners looked certain to tally their long awaited first win in Boston.
But the Whitecaps weren’t going to make it that easy…
What followed was one the most exciting endings from the 2015 MLU Season, with both teams making plays that got the fans on their feet.
