This was our only regular season match that crossed the Michigan border. The Dynamo were formerly the Cincinnati Saints, who migrated north when a billionaire put a USL team in the Queen City, killing the rivalry with my sister and her family. Either way, southern Ohio usually means three points.
By the 34th minute, Le Rouge amassed a 4-0 lead, powered by Danny Deakin. In thirteen minutes, Deakin scored the first,
then set up Alec Lasinski for two,
and Ali Al-Gashamy.
In the second half, City leaked a couple goals, as they had against the Michigan Stars two nights ago. Kristian Montoya scored on a PK in the 54th minute. Then Tristan Lyle put in a well-placed header in the 75th minute.
