NoVA, DMV, Salisbury victorious in Week 12

by Scott Ludwig

Two teams solidified their spot atop the Major Arena Soccer League 3 table in Week 12 action. First place NoVA FC (7-2-0) slipped past a feisty Fredericksburg Fire (5-4-0) squad while host DMV Gunners (6-3-0) took sole possession of second with a home win over Philadelphia Spartans (5-3-0). Expansion side Salisbury Steaks kept their slim playoff hopes alive with a home win.
