After earning the top seed via head-to-head tiebreaker, Atlantic City FC will host its first ever NPSL playoff game tonight in Egg Harbor Township against Philadelphia Lone Star.

The second-seeded West Chester United, which lost their only game against Atlantic City this season on the Saturday between U.S. Open Cup matches in Baltimore and Birmingham, Alabama, will host No. 3 seed FC Motown at 7 p.m.

Just five points separated the first and fourth place teams in the standings for the Keystone Conference this season with Alantic City and West Chester finishing tied on points with 22 and identical 7-2-1 records.

After losing to West Chester United a week earlier, Philadelphia Lone Star needed a win and help from their rivals to earn a playoff spot. They did just that with a 5-2 win over Electric City Shock and a 4-0 West Chester United win over FC Monmouth on the final day of the regular season Saturday.

Atlantic City FC wrapped up their first regular season conference title with a 4-2 win over FC Monmouth last Wednesday. They’ll host Lone Star at 7:45 p.m. tonight at Silver Eagle Stadium.

The Keystone Conference championship will be decided on Saturday at the home field of the higher seed.
