DETROIT, MI (May 26, 2021) - Detroit City Football Club played the third match of their 2021 UWS season not far from home at the Corner Ballpark in Detroit on Wednesday evening.
Things escalated quickly for the Detroit City offense in this game. After 10 minutes of testing each other, #40 Alia Frederick lofted in a dangerous cross into the box, and #5 Sarah Huge was able to dive in to head it home, putting City up 1-0. Not long after, Corktown was unable to clear a ball in the box, and #24 Kenna White was right there to deftly chip it over the AFC goalkeeper to record an early 2-0 lead.
Despite more chances at both ends, the score would remain 2-0 in the first half of action.
Things were even to begin the second half until City was awarded a free kick just on top of Corktown’s box in the 52nd minute. Second-half sub #31 Tatiana Mason took the kick and placed it in the top right corner to put Detroit City up 3-0 with plenty of game left.
With numerous substitutions for both sides in the second half, Corktown was rarely able to break the midfield press deployed by Le Rouge, which helped them see out the 3-0 scoreline until the final whistle blew.
Detroit City Football Club, now 3-0-0 in UWS, will continue their season back at Keyworth Stadium as they face the Chicago Mustangs on May 29 at 7:30 p.m.
