A Chance to Get Back on Track

Liquid Football looks to get back on track as they play Detroit Union at Waterford Mott High School on Saturday, May 20th. Kickoff is at 7PM.

The last game was a tough loss to defending champions Inter Detroit last Friday at Gabriel Richard High School. Inter Detroit dominated, jumping ahead 3-0 in the first half. After halftime, Liquid Football made some changes and looked like a completely different team in the second half. They controlled most of the possession. Liquid Football pulled one back, but it was too little too late. The final score was 3-1.

Detroit Union lost to Fort Wayne Sport Club 1927 5-0 last week. Fort Wayne scored their first three goals within eight minutes at the end of the first half, including a brace by Higor Barbieri. The second two goals came a minute into the second half and in the 68th minute. Detroit Union was 1-6-3 last season. Union won their first match in their final game of the season against BIH Grand Rapids 1-0.

Union is a young team from all over southeast Michigan. They have recruited players of varying experience and skill to their roster. For 18/33 players on their roster, this will be their first season with Detroit Union. Many of their players have MWPL or above experience. If they show up with their full roster, they can be a dangerous team. A Liquid Football first, we are breaking news about another team. Detroit Union haven’t updated their website or social media since last season, so we thought it would be helpful to the fans to see Detroit Union’s roster.
