Attendance: ?

Another scorching afternoon in Kalamazoo as City wrapped up the season.  First place in the Great Lakes Division of the NPSL was ours, but a win assured us a bye in the first-round of the NPSL Midwest Region playoffs.

 

Maki-vision streamed the match back home.

It didn’t take long.  City drew a PK and in the 9th minute, Max Todd gave us the lead.

 

Isaiah Nieves equalized in the 25th minute, and the teams went into halftime knotted at a goal each.

Kalamazoo FC, a mid-table team, handed us our only defeat of the season back at our home opener.  They match up well against us, and a 3-win, 3-loss, 1-draw record against them is evidence of that.  It took until the 72nd minute, when Abdoulaye Diop scored a beauty, to give City the lead that would not be relinquished.

Tommy Buono buried a third in the 90th, securing a playoff bye.

2019 NPSL Great Lakes Division Champions.
