It didn’t take long for City to take command of the match.  In the first minute, Brooke Sleeva intercepted a pass out of the Midland defense and sent a low ball across field into the path of Syd Smith who chipped it over Midland keeper Maya Ettenne.

As the halftime whistle blew, City had a 2-0 lead.  The team was controlling the play on the field, and the Northern Guard Supporters started to occupy space in the head of FC Midland coach.


In the 58th minute, a long ball was sent over the top of the City defense.  A Midland player outraced them to the ball and got a shot off that City keeper Sarah Hammond saved.  However the rebound found its way to Kaitlyn Dake who drifted it into the top of the goal to cut City’s lead in half.  But City and the Northern Guard kept up the pressure.
