Keyworth Stadium, Hamtramck, MI
NPSL Regular Season Match
Detroit City FC 1, Kalamazoo FC 0
DCFC Tommy Catalano (George Chomakov) 63′
Despite the early season highs, Le Rouge’s regular season was struggling. Going into the midway point, the standings looked like this:
AFC Ann Arbor 4-1-2 14
Grand Rapids FC 3-1-3 11
Kalamazoo FC 3-3-1 10
Michigan Stars 2-2-3 9
Lansing United 1-2-4 7
Detroit City FC 1-2-3 6
Dayton Dynamo 1-4-1 4
It was a scorching, Father’s Day Sunday. Le Rouge had not yet won a regular season match at Keyworth. And the crowd that appeared was smaller than the last two regular season matches at Cass Tech.
It must have been the rope-a-dope.
Tommy Catalano’s 63rd minute goal and Nate Steinwescher’s shut-out created City’s first regular season home victory at Keyworth.
Now the flags and banners can be righted.
