It was United’s final game of the season and their 44 points on a 14-2-2 record left the Outlaws in the driver’s seat with 46 points and two games remaining on a 15-0-1 record.

The Feb. 15 match was the only game played this past weekend. “The season is winding down now,” said league spokesperson Selina Baker. “The games being played are make-up games to finish off the (18-game) season.”
