City Dismantles Columbus in Home Opener

Biggest Game to Date

On Friday, December 1st, Lansing City kicked off at home against Columbus Futsal in front of the biggest crowd ever for Lansing City! It was a dominating performance by City that featured highlight moments that brought the City fans to their feet! 

Down early

City started the game on a rather terrible note going down  by 2 goals in the first 3 minutes of the game. Fans were stunned and Columbus was ecstatic. However, that scene didn't last long. City roared back scoring a club record, 14 goals including some absolutely spectacular ones! 

Mendez Brothers at it again

Aldony and Alexis Mendez terrorized the defense with their creative movement and dynamic display of attack! We are getting the idea that this is going to be a common occurrence for City. The chemistry between the two is incredible, after all they are brothers. 

Ward and Wilson-Santos Shine

Darus Ward and Jared-Wilson Santos shined again for City spurring numerous attacking opportunities and performing spectacularly in the back. We also saw the first appearance of Emmanuel Belliard who brought the crowd to their feet with his silky smooth technical skills and finished the game with his first ever City goal! City's Jeremy Klepal did his usual thing, buzzing around the court slicing and dicing the defense, and finished the night with two goals of his own. 

Looking ahead

City starts the season 2-0 after this win against Columbus. On December 30th, City will travel to Columbus to play their second leg against Columbus Futsal. On January 5th, City will come back home to take on ABK Futsal at 7:00 P.M at the Aim High Sports Complex.
