Less than a week after thumping FC Indiana 11-0 on their pitch, Detroit City FC was blessed by the schedule-makers who arranged for the next match to be at Keyworth. I don’t believe there was any doubt that City would win. The only question was by how many goals?
The hint of another blowout began early, when FC Indiana keeper Sebatian Uranga took out a City player outside the box, creating a spot kick. Up stepped Stephen Carroll….
The game settled, and FC Indiana stood firm. In the 39th minute, Uranga, the Indy keeper, strayed from the box and handled the ball, earning him his second yellow card of the match. With Indy down a man, City scored two goals before the first-half whistle. Shawn Lawson netted the first one…
…then Rafa Mentzinger scored, and City led 3-0 at the half.
It was Polish-American Heritage Night at Keyworth.
It took nine minutes for City to score their fourth when Seb Harris took this penalty kick.
At the 63rd minute, Trevor Amann found the back of the net. 5-0.
Brogan Shrimpton, who scored a hat trick in Lafayette, added a goal at the 72nd minute. 6-0.
Dave Edwardson blasted home the extra point a minute later. 7-0.
In the 82nd minute, Trevor Amann wrapped up the scoring with this goal.
Four matches in the books, and City had won three of them. The 20-1 goal differential was impressive, but not every team in the division would be this easy to score on.
The large notepad with -39 written on it was FC Indiana’s goal differential at the end of the game, as a page was removed and the number updated after each goal scored against them.
