CANTON, MI (May 29, 2021) - The Detroit City FC UWS 2 side began its first campaign in a winning fashion by defeating Rebels FC 2-1 at Independence Park in Canton, Michigan. The wind played a factor all throughout the match and made it difficult for either team to play long balls over the top.
Detroit City FC was the first to break the deadlock in the 27th minute when #57 Tori Singstock took a shot from an angle that was awkward for the Rebels goalkeeper and she could not get across to it. This lead would only last about fifteen minutes because on the brink of halftime the Rebels equalized through a scramble in the box that was tapped in by their forward, #4 Turner.
Almost immediately after halftime, Le Rouge would find their way ahead in this one as Singstock played a ball to #6 Bri Rogers who tucked it home to give Detroit City FC the lead, this goal would end up being crucial for Le Rouge who would go on to see out the 2-1 victory over the Rebels.
This win moves Detroit City FC to (1-0-0) in UWS 2 play and the loss for Rebels FC moves them to (1-1-0). Detroit City FC’s next match is on Sunday, June 6 at 2 pm ET where they will travel up to Midland to face off against Midland FC, the next time Rebels FC take the pitch is on Saturday, June 5 at 8 pm ET where they face off against AFC Plymouth at Oakland University.
