NEW YORK, N.Y. - The highest-scoring team in the National Arena League, the expansion New York Streets (3-4), look to get back on track as they host the Columbus (Ga.) Lions (2-5). Leading the Streets on offense is former Brooklyn prep school star (South Side H.S.) David Legree, who played collegiately at Syracuse and spent some time in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts. Saturday's game starts at 7:00 p.m., ET at the historic Westchester County Center in White Plains, N.Y.
This game marks the first-ever match-up between the Streets and the Lions and the Southeastern Conference (SEC) will be very well represented.
