Detroit City FC ended its National Premier Soccer League campaign on a sour note, dropping a 4-3 decision to Kalamazoo FC Saturday at Mayor's Riverfront Park.
Le Rouge (5-4-3, 18 points) rallied from a 4-0 deficit to make it a one-goal affair after being reduced to 10 men in the 30th minute when defender Omar Sinclair was red carded for a reckless tackle.
Roddy Green scored twice (69', 76') after coming on as a sub for Jake Rudel in the 61st minute.
Green's second strike pulled DCFC to within one and created a frantic finish as Louis Dargent's free kick hit the crossbar five minutes later when Kalamazoo goalkeeper Elijah Michael managed to get a finger to it. Dargent also had a header from a corner sail over the net moments later.
Seb Harris opened DCFC's account in the 65th minute, converting a penalty after Cyrus Saydee was taken down in the area.
Dumisani Manyange (26', 53') and Nick King (6,' 25') each scored twice for Kalamazoo FC (4-5-3), which earned a 1-1 draw against DCFC in Hamtramck June 23. King's second tally came off a penalty after Sinclair brought down a Kalamazoo forward in the area.
DCFC, which was eliminated from postseason play, turns its focus to a slate of international friendlies, starting Tuesday when it hosts Liga MX side Club Necaxa at Keyworth Stadium. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
(At) AFC Ann Arbor 9, FC Indiana 0: Azaad Liadi and Jordan Montoya each scored twice for the Mighty Oak (9-1-2, 29 points), who clinched one of the top two seeds in the NPSL Midwest Region and will receive a first-round playoff bye.
