The Dockers’ doubleheader against the Chicago Swans and the DC Eagles, scheduled for Saturday, September 15 in Washington has been CANCELLED due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Florence.
The Dockers’ men’s team plays its next game on Saturday, September 22nd at noon against our rivals, the Philadelphia Hawks.
The Hurricanes maintain their undefeated record through all of world history.
Seriously, everyone stay safe, especially our mates from the North Carolina Tigers, who are directly in the path of the storm.

The Dockers men’s team won a thrilling game against the Philadelphia Hawks today, using a fourth-quarter comeback to win by a score of 33-32.
The Dockers were down 30-19 at the end of the third quarter, but came back to score 14 points while holding the Hawks to just two behinds. The defense withstood intense pressure from the Hawks’ forwards in the last two minutes to hold on for the first win over Philadelphia in club history.
The entire game was played in driving rain at Baltimore’s Patterson Park. Thanks to the Hawks for their fierce competition on the field and their camaraderie off the field, thanks to the umpires, and especially thanks to the fans who turned out in heavy rain to cheer on your team!
