Detroit City FC 3, Fort Pitt Regiment 1
PITT Lamine Balde (Michael Tuohy) 26′
DCFC Latif Alashe 56′
DCFC Shawn Lawson (T.J. Van Slooten) 72′
DCFC T.J. Van Slooten 90′

Attendance:  3,398

The team’s first sell-out and new attendance record with 400 or so folks turned away at the gate.  Fort Pitt considered ruining the party and final home game of the season for Le Rouge when Lamine Balde scored in the 25th minute.  They took the 1-0 lead with them into the locker room at half time.

The second half was completely different.

Latif Alashe scored in a goal-mouth scramble in the 56th minute to level the score.  Then, Shawn Lawson scored the prettiest goal of the season and probably in the history of Detroit City FC, carving through a couple of defenders and the keeper for the highlight reel game-winning tally in the 72nd minute.  T. J. Van Slooten scored in added time to hammer the final nail in the Fort Pitt casket.

The video I shot at this match is on another page titled “90 Minutes Within the Northern Guard Supporters Section,” where I wanted to capture the experience of reveling with the rabid supporters of Detroit’s soccer team.
