What is it like being in an extremely high-pressure, do-or-die situation? That is exactly what the Boston Iron faced in their final regular-season match against the Baltimore Anthem.

Returning for Season 2 as underdogs and with a chip on their shoulder, the Iron came into their match against the Anthem needing a win to advance to the playoffs. A loss would send them home and put an end to their season.

Feel the intensity and the excitement building as the athletes rise to the occasion and ultimately seal the victory and a playoffs berth under head coach Josh Plosker.
