Miami FC keeps slim playoff hopes alive
by Paul Kennedy, September 7th, 2009 7AM



[USL-1] Miami FC kept its very slim playoff hopes alive when it snapped its six-game losing streak Saturday night, by beating the Austin Aztex, 3-1.

Former N.C. star Aaron King scored in his first start with the Blues, who have been bringing players in and out of the team in the last month.

Minnesota is also barely alive while first-year teams Austin and Cleveland are out of playoff contention.

Portland, Carolina, Puerto Rico and Charleston have clinched playoff berths, while Montreal, Rochester and Vancouver are expected to round out the seven-team postseason field.
