Detroit, Michigan – Detroit City FC is back on the road for their third game in seven days, facing off against Flint City AFC on the road. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 PM and streaming will be provided by the home team and shared on all Detroit City FC social media platforms.
This will be the second time in three matches that these two sides will meet, with Detroit City FC beginning their season at home to Flint just one week ago. Both sides created dangerous attacking chances that they would likely finish on another day. It was a 0-0 draw when these teams faced off seven days ago but an entertaining one at that.
Detroit City FC had a draw in midweek away to Kalamazoo FC who sit tied with Flint City AFC at the top of the Great Lakes Conference. Le Rouge took the lead in the first half after Kenna White dispatched a well-placed penalty into the Kalamazoo net. Kalamazoo would equalize on the brink of halftime with a clever bit of passing play in the midfield.
All 90’ of the match in Kalamazoo was end-to-end with both sides attacking and counter-attacking for all 90’. Kalamazoo FC would take the lead in the second half, putting Le Rouge under pressure to get a result late.
Detroit City FC leaned on substitutes and picked up their own pace, they were rewarded for this decision with a late penalty, taken and scored by Kayla Addison to rescue a draw on the road. Their second in as many matches.
Flint City AFC had their own midweek contest where they went on the road and defeated the always-impressive Midwest United FC by a score of 2-1. Flint found themselves down 1-0 as late as the 75th minute but their fortunes would change when forward Bella Gaetino scored a two-minute brace with goals in minutes 78 and 80. These goals would be enough to move Flint to a record of 2-1-0 and move them to the top of the Great Lakes conference of the USL W League.
Following tonight’s contest, Detroit City FC is back on the road at the midweek, traveling to take on Cleveland Force SC who currently sits bottom of the conference with a record of 0-0-2.
