SALINE, MICHIGAN – After a well fought match, the Detroit City Football Club (1-2-3) fell to fellow USL W League side AFC Ann Arbor (3-1–1) on Thursday night at Saline High School, 1-0.
Goalkeeper Dieghton Wamer made several crucial saves throughout the night – earning Woman of the Match honors – but would surrender the match-deciding tally in the 80th minute to Ann Arbor’s Lina Berrah.
The sides exchanged opportunities through the first 45 minutes of play. Warmer – the youngest of Le Rouge’s four keepers – came up huge in the 26th minute with a save from an AFC Ann Arbor free kick. She dove to her left post to deny the strike from just outside the penalty area.
Le Rouge’s best chance of the outing came in the 41st minute. Following a long throw-in from defender Shannon McCarthy, the ball found its way through to forward Ellie Pool in the penalty area, who put a shot off the post. The ball nearly found its way in, as the ensuing clearance was clanged off the crossbar.
Detroit City FC returns home to Keyworth Stadium for the first time since May 12th as Kings Hammer FC comes to town this Sunday, June 5th. Kickoff is set for 4 pm.
