Philadelphia hosts Atlanta for their second matchup of the season

July 14, 2021

The Philadelphia Phoenix will return to the South Philadelphia Super Site this Friday, July 16 at 7:30 PM/ET. They’ll take on the Atlanta Hustle for the second time this season.

The Phoenix ended a four-game losing streak this past weekend, defeating the Glory 23-22 in Boston in the second game of their double header road trip. Now sitting at 3-4 on the year, Philadelphia is in fifth place in the Atlantic Division and in position to make a playoff push heading into the second half of the season—the top four teams will make the postseason. The Hustle are coming off their first loss of the season and currently sit in third place.

The two teams met previously in Atlanta back in Week 4; the Hustle won 24-17. The Phoenix got off to a fast start, out-scoring Atlanta 12-10 in the first half, but couldn’t hold on for the win despite a dominant 689-yard showing from player/GM Mike Arcata. Greg Martin—the current league leader with 32 goals through the first six weeks of the season—also put on a show in the game, finding the end zone five times.

Tickets for the game are available on the official team store.
