AFC Cleveland Soccer Land Draw on the Road

Northeast Ohio's newest sports franchise earns draw with Detroit City FC

PRLog - May 13, 2012 - A goal by Case Western Reserve striker Vinny Bell was enough to earn AFC Cleveland a 1-1 draw with Detroit City FC Saturday night. It was Cleveland's first ever regular season match and first ever road match.

Detroit opened the scoring with a goal in the 11th minute by Stefan St. Louis. Bell's strike in the 34th brought things even at 1-1.

Cleveland goalkeeper Ben Yabrow was called upon several times to deny the home team's attack, landing two spectacular saves in 1 v 1 situations.

"To come away with a point was great," AFC Cleveland head coach Andy Hoggarth stated. "We were nice and strong in the air; we created good opportunities."

Cleveland has little time to rest as they face the visiting Greater Binghamton FC on Mother's Day at Byers Field in Parma. It is the first home game in franchise history.

AFC Cleveland will play its first 4 home games at Byers Field. The final two home games (6/29, 7/6) will be played at Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School in Broadview Heights due to stadium renovations taking place at Byers during that time.
