DETROIT, Michigan – The Detroit City Football Club continues its four-match W League road stretch on Thursday, May 26, as Le Rouge takes on Midwest United at the Midwest United FC Complex. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
The match was previously scheduled to take place at Aquinas College. Midwest United announced on Monday that all its remaining home games will take place at the MUFC Complex – located at 3450 36th St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49512 – following the completion of facility upgrades.
Thursday’s match will be streamed. A link is not yet available. Midwest United announced via Twitter (@mufcusl) that a link will be posted prior to kickoff.
Detroit City FC is still in search of its first win of the season, coming off a heartbreaking loss to Racing Louisville FC. After taking a 1-0 lead into the locker room, Racing Louisville struck twice in the final eight minutes of play.
DCFC is in seventh place in the USL W League Great Lakes Division with a record of 0-2-1, drawing twice at home to open the season. Midwest United FC currently stands in fourth in the division with a record of 1-1-0, most recently earning a point against Kings Hammer FC.
Though it’s the inaugural season for the W League, Le Rouge and Midwest come into Thursday’s fixture with plenty of history. Detroit City’s first-ever match on the women’s side came at Midwest – at the MUFC Complex – in 2020. DCFC later would fall to Midwest in the finals of the 2020 Keyworth Showcase. Last season in the UWS, Midwest swept Le Rouge in the regular season on its way claiming the Midwest Conference title.
Veteran defender Madison Duncan continues to shine for Le Rouge, scoring the lone goal in the 2-1 loss at Racing Louisville, earning Woman of the Match plaudits. She and midfielder Ellie Pool currently lead the team with one goal a piece.
Despite surrendering two goals in her City debut, goalkeeper Bethany Kopel turned away nine shots at Racing Louisville. Kopel and Gabby Schriver have combined for 21 saves on the season – third most in the division.
