FC London Does It Again: Advances To Championship


No one expected FC London to make much noise once the playoffs arrived in the PDL, but they have been the loudest of them all.  Alex Lewis scored late in the second half on Saturday night to give FC London a 3-2 win over the Seattle Sounders at Cove Road Field and take them into the PDL Championship game next Saturday in North Carolina.  London will face the Carolina Dynamo.

Seattle had built a 2-0 lead by half, but goals by Carl Haworth and Bryan Da Cruz helped FC London to equalize and set the stage for Lewis' heroics.

Both keepers were kept busy, combining for 23 saves in the game.

Next weekend's championship game marks FC London's first trip to the PDL final.
