Days prior to this match, the Metro Detroit soccer community suffered a tragedy.  John Bieniewicz was about to red card a player while refereeing a match in Livonia when he was blindsided with a punch by the player, ultimately ending the life of the referee.  Bieniewicz, the president of the Metro Detroit Soccer Officials Organization, was a 44-year-old husband and father of two boys.  The incident shook the community.

To honor the life of John Bieniewicz, the Northern Guard Supporters created these “red cards” that were to be raised by all in silence in the 44th minute of the match.

As for the game, of course City pummeled the Saints into submission once more.  That’s what we do.

The Kitchen/DCFC vs Bruce/Saints rivalry is once again absent any member of the Bruce family.  Fearful, they are, of treading onto City grounds.  One begins to question whether a rivalry really exists, especially when one team is Le Rouge, and the other team sucks so bad that its hometown fans distance themselves from the team.
