June 6, 2014: Erie Admirals

June 6, 2014
NPSL Regular Season
Cass Tech High School, Detroit, Michigan

Detroit City FC 2, Erie Admirals 2
ERIE  Andre Landell 57′
DCFC Shaun Lawson (Wade Allen) 66′
DCFC Josh Rogers (PK) 72′
ERIE  Mike Bamber 89′

Attendance:  3,234

The attendance record shattered again, Le Rouge hosted the team that defeated us in the division finals last season – Erie.

City entered the match with a 4-1-0 record.  Their first three matches won at home. Last weekend they won in Cincy (3-2) on Friday, and earned a 2-2 draw against Indiana Fire on Sunday.

It was also the night that Detroit City FC players wore special jerseys in partnership with the “You Can Play” project which promotes inclusion in sports, particularly with the LGBT community.  The jerseys were auctioned with the proceeds going to the Ruth Ellis Center.  I put in a bid on Cyrus Saydee’s jersey, however it came up short.  The team sold additional jerseys which we did purchase.  With this jersey, Detroit City FC became one of the early promoters of LGBT community acceptance in sports.
