Spirit Earn Playoff Home Game in Drama Filled Night at the Plex
There was lightning, there was controversy, there were injuries — there was enough drama at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Wednesday to fill a full season of a soap opera, but in the end the Washington Spirit pulled out a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Reign to earn the club its first home playoff game in franchise history.
The drama started before the game. The unusual late-season Wednesday night game was delayed for over an hour due of the lightning from thunderstorms that raced through the Germantown area last evening leading to the cancellation of high school sporting events throughout the region, including the Seneca Valley boys and girls soccer games. Those have been rescheduled for Thursday afternoon.
