The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds will play their third home game of the 2021 season this Saturday, July 3 at 6:00pm at JC Stone Field. They’ll take on the Philadelphia Phoenix in a rematch of their Week 3 game in Philly.
The first of two meetings between the birds of Pennsylvania resulted in a decisive 27-18 Phoenix win; the Thunderbirds trailed throughout the game and dropped to 0-4. They’ll look to get their first win of the season this weekend in front of the home crowd.
Starting off slow is nothing new for the Thunderbirds; the team started 0-3 in 2019 before stringing together six straight wins on their way to an 8-4 season. 2019 All-Star Game MVP Max Sheppard has racked up 24 scores through the team’s first four games, an even 12 assists and 12 goals to start the year. Sheppard became just the fifth player in AUDL history to reach the 50-assist-50-goal milestone in a single season in 2019.
Tickets are available through the team's official online store.
