2014 Season Summary

The 2014 Season

In this season, Le Rouge entered new territory.  The previous year’s performance granted them a place in the U.S. Open Cup – the oldest professional soccer tournament in America.

To support the community, the team wore special jerseys in partnership with the “You Can Play” project which promotes inclusion in sports, particularly with the LGBT community.  The jerseys were then auctioned with the proceeds going to the Ruth Ellis Center.

And the Northern Guard Supporters recognized an untimely loss within the Michigan soccer community.

For me, personally, the season brought a family rival to the pitch in which a last minute, game winning goal on enemy turf couldn’t keep me quiet…

and I took the camera into the Northern Guard Supporters Section to share the experience (minus the sensation of smoke).

It was another successful season of supporter growth both at home and on the road, and a remarkable season, falling short of first place due to a draw in the final match.

The scoring leaders of the team according to the NPSL website were as follows:

G A
William Mellors-Blair 5 3
Zach Myers 4 0
Jeff Adkins 3 1
Shawn Claud Lawson 3 0
Latif Alashe 2 1
Tyler Arnone 2 1
Josh Rogers 2 0
Danny Dragoi 1 0
Michael Lamb 1 0
Colin McAtee 0 3
Wade Allen 0 2
George Chomakov 0 1
Oliver Harris 0 1
Miche’le Lipari 0 1
