After a commanding win last weekend at Cass Tech, Detroit City FC prepares for their next matchup — this time on the road. Sunday, June 14, Le Rouge face the Minnesota United Reserves, with kickoff set for 1:00 p.m. at East Ridge High School. The first matchup between the two sides heavily favors DCFC. Minnesota is still looking for its first win of the season, currently holding a 0-1-2 record. While United sits at the bottom of the standings, DCFC reigns at the top.
With three wins under their belt and a league-high goal differential, of nine Le Rouge will look to build upon their recent success.
This past weekend, DCFC was in full control, taking down the Madison 56ers, 5-0. The star of the night was Will Mellors-Blair (Michigan), who put on a show with a pair of goals in the second half. The forward netted the brace past Madison goalkeeper Joe White for Le Rouge’s third and fourth tallies, earning him the M1 Imaging Man of the Match award. City goalkeeper Bret Mollon (Temple) earned the team’s first shutout of the year in front of 3,561 supporters, the biggest crowd Cass Tech has seen in 2015. Saturday, the team wore custom jerseys that were auctioned off to benefit Detroit PAL.
DCFC returns home Wednesday, June 17, when the boys meet the Columbus Crew College Program in a midweek friendly matchup. Get your tickets to see Le Rouge in action for the rest of the 2015 home schedule online here.
